Christian Bale And Drew Barrymore Went On A Date As Teenagers

Hollywood has produced a lot of strange relationships over the years, but God only knows how much stranger some of the ones we’ve never heard about have been. As a young up-and-coming teenage actor, Christian Bale asked Drew Barrymore out. She said yes, and he escorted her to the movies. Apparently, it did not go as well as he would have liked because there never wound up being a repeat engagement.

At least that’s what the Dark Knight Rises actor told the new issue of Australian GQ during a cover article currently on newsstands. You can take a look at his quote below, courtesy of Access Hollywood

“We went to see some bloody awful horror film, and that was the end of it. She never called again.”

He’s thirty-eight, and she’s a year younger. So, if you’re trying to figure out what shitty horror movie this could have been, I’d probably focus my efforts between 1989 and 1993. My money is on Child’s Play 2 with Pet Sematary Two as a dark horse candidate.

Regardless of whatever film it was, it’s probably a good thing the movie wasn’t better. Bale went on to marry make-up artist Sandra Blazic in 2000, and they have one daughter. Barrymore briefly tied the knot with both Jeremy Thomas and Tom Green, but she now seems over-the-moon happy with current fiancé Will Kopelman. Sometimes bad dates are best as one-and-dones.
