Christian Bale fans baffled when they hear his accent and find out he’s BRITISH – The Sun

FANS were baffled to discover Batman is actually British when Christian Bale unleashed a surprising accent in a new interview.

The 45-year-old actor usually speaks with an American twang on the big screen, playing the likes of Bruce Wayne's crime-fighting alter ago.


But film buffs were shocked when Bale sat down for a BBC Breakfast interview about his new film Le Mans '66 and began to speak like he was born and bred in East London.

He showed off an exaggerated Cockney accent during a BBC Breakfast interview – despite the fact he was born in Wales and grew up in various places in the UK.

Bale spent some of his teenage years in Bournemouth, on the south coast, and even lived in Portugal for a short time.

It appears as though he may have been putting on his broad London accent.

The hunky leading man was discussing the movie alongside co-star Matt Damon but the film's subjects, Ford and Ferrari, weren't people's main concern.

Instead, dozens of viewers took to Twitter to express their shock and disbelief as Bale chatted away, channelling his inner Dick Van Dyke

"I really can't believe that Christian Bale is actually British," commented one person. "It's mind-blowing."

"Head's gone here," remarked another shocked user. "[As] if that’s Christian Bale’s actual f**king accent."

Another Tweeter questioned how they had "only just heard Christian Bale’s real accent?"

For others, his unexpected lilt came as a welcome surprise.

"I would see this just to listen to Christian Bale talk with that accent for two hours," one love-struck lady remarked, while another person admitted that "it’s been 24 hours and I can’t stop thinking about Christian Bale’s British accent."

The Welsh actor's accent confused fans at the Critic's Choice Awards  earlier this year, with people saying he sounded like the Artful Dodger in Oliver Twist.
