It seems that every few years or so, people forget that Christian Bale is very much not American.
In his Golden Globes speech, he was busy thanking everyone for winning Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy when everyone realized that, wow, he’s very British.
Me: *forgets Christian Bale is British for the 638373rd time*
Christian Bale: *speaks, is British*

In a hilarious twist, it really seems like so many people forgot that he is British. He masks that thick accent pretty well!

Others decided to share their ultimate Bale knowledge and remind them that they always knew he was British, which doesn’t do anything and isn’t very funny. Yet, it happened.
Apparently I’m the only person on the internet who already knew Christian Bale is British and saw EMPIRE OF THE SUN in theatres.

You might as well be the only person to have known! Either way, now it’s just even more apparent that winning the Golden Globe was warranted!
