It’s a Batman gutter war.

Christian Bale fired a few shots at fellow Batman alumnus George Clooney in an interview with the Wall Street Journal Magazine, saying of Clooney’s complaints about the paparazzi:

“It’s boring, isn’t it? You know what I mean? It doesn’t matter that [Clooney] talks about it. It’s like, come on, guys, just shut up. Just get on with it and live your lives and stop whining about it. I prefer not to whine about it.”

While this may seem kind of out of nowhere and unnecessary for the occasionally-dickish Bale, he actually has a point. Complaining about the paparazzi is all well and good, but honestly what is that going to change? Bale is, in perhaps a bit of a gruff manner, simply saying that the reality of being an A-list celebrity. People are going to take your picture and try to get you to lash out; why fight against that reality when you can just accept it and move on?
