I refuse to acknowledge that Christian Bale ages, stars in other films, has an accent, or is probably a jerk*. I’ll always see him as Laurie in my head. I have an uncomfortably real crush on him in this movie. It concerns me because I’m pretty sure, somewhere deep inside me, I think Teddy exists.
*So obviously today I saw pictures of him visiting a hospital, but I wrote this a few days ago and was mostly thinking of his recorded outburst. I don’t really know what he’s like as a person. Maybe he’s very nice! I’ll probably never find out.
