Christian Bale sat down with Variety at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend and the interviewer asked if he had any advice for the newest Dark Knight, Robert Pattinson.
“Oh, same as for Ben [Affleck]: Be able to pee by yourself. You don’t feel much like a superhero when you can’t take a piss by yourself.”
While promoting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, Affleck told Conan O’Brien that he had randomly run into Bale in a Halloween costume shop, and that Bale’s only advice had been “look mate, just make sure there’s a zipper in that suit.”
