Early life

Christian Charles Philip Bale was born on 30 January 1974 in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, to English parents—Jenny James, a circus performer, and David Bale, an entrepreneur and activist. Bale has remarked, “I was born in Wales but I’m not Welsh—I’m English.” He has two elder sisters, Sharon and Louise, and a half-sister from his father’s first marriage, Erin. One of his grandfathers was a comedian while the other was a stand-in for John Wayne. Bale and his family left Wales when he was two years old, and after living in Portugal and Oxfordshire, England, they settled in Bournemouth. As well as saying that the family had lived in 15 towns by the time he was 15, Bale described the frequent relocation as being driven by “necessity rather than choice” and acknowledged that it had a major influence on his career selection. He attended Bournemouth School, later saying he left school at age 16. Bale’s parents divorced in 1991, and at age 17, he moved with his sister Louise and their father to Los Angeles.

Bale trained in ballet as a child. His first acting role came at eight years old in a commercial for the fabric softener Lenor. He also appeared in a Pac-Man cereal commercial. After his sister was cast in a West End musical, Bale considered taking up acting professionally. He said later he did not find acting appealing butsued it at the request of those around him because he had no reason not to do so. After participating in school plays, Bale performed opposite Rowan Atkinson in the play The Nerd in the West End in 1984. He did not undergo any formal acting training.

Personal life

Bale has lived in Los Angeles since the 1990s. He holds US citizenship. Bale married Sandra “Sibi” Blažić, a former model, in Las Vegas on 29 January 2000. The couple have a daughter and a son. In 2000, Bale became feminist Gloria Steinem’s stepson following her marriage to his father, who died in 2003 of brain lymphoma.

Bale became a vegetarian at seven years old but in 2009 said he was “in and out of the vegetarianism now” He had stopped eating red meat after reading the children’s book Charlotte’s Web. An animal rights activist, he supports the organisations Greenpeace, the World Wide Fund for Nature, the Doris Day Animal League, the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International and Redwings Horse Sanctuary. While promoting The Flowers of War in December 2011, Bale, and a crew from the CNN television network, attempted to visit Chen Guangcheng, a confined blind barefoot lawyer, in a village in eastern China. He was forced to retreat after scuffling with guards at a checkpoint. Bale finally met Chen at a dinner held by the nonprofit Human Rights First the following year, during which he presented Chen with an award. Bale voiced Chen’s story in Amnesty International’s podcast, In Their Own Words.

On 22 July 2008, Bale was arrested in London after his mother and his sister Sharon reported him to the police for an alleged assault at a hotel. He was released on bail.Bale denied the allegations and later called the incident “a deeply personal matter”. On 14 August, the Crown Prosecution Service declared they would take no further action against him because of “insufficient evidence to afford a realistic prospect of conviction”.
