Actor Christian Bale reportedly flew into a rage on the set of the forthcoming Terminator sequel last Friday–just two days before he is alleged to have assaulted his mother and sister.
The Dark Knight star, 34, was arrested in London on Tuesday over allegations that he attacked his mom Jenny, 61, and sister Sharon, 40, at the capital’s Dorchester Hotel on Sunday night.
Bale–who has denied the accusations–was subsequently released on bail, but reports have now emerged online claiming that he also lost his temper while shooting action movie Terminator Salvation at Kirtland Air Force Base in New Mexico.
According to TMZ.com, the actor became incensed when he thought Shane Hurlbut, the director of cinematography, messed up a shot.
However, other sources have played down the reports, saying Bale was simply “extremely tired and having a bad day.”
Bale is due to return to London to face possible assault charges in September.
