Earlier this week, a three-minute audio clip surfaced that featured actor Christian Bale flipping out on the set of his new movie Terminator Salvation. Bale spends the entire clip yelling and cursing at director of photography Shane Hurlbut, who apparently distracted Bale during the filming of a scene. But this was hardly an isolated incident...
