Batman wants to be an American.
British-born actor Christian Bale has applied for US citizenship, a media report said. The Terminator: Salvation star left his native Wales in 1976 and lived all over Europe before moving Stateside for work in the late ’90s. Now the actor is eager to make America his permanent home, Star Magazine tipsters claim.
Christian sure doesn’t seem to have many ties left to his homeland: He’s all but disowned his mother and bankrupt sister since the women had him arrested for allegedly assaulting them on the evening of the London premiere of his movie The Dark Knight back in July 2008.
Bale is married to American model Sibi Blazic. The couple lives in Los Angeles with their young daughter Emmeline.
