You may know the intense Welsh actor best by his rough and gruff performances in The Dark Knight
and The Fighter
, but rewind to a couple decades ago and you can see Christian in his first major film role at age 13 in 1987s Empire of the Sun
. And dont forget his endearing role in the 1992 musical Newsies
. We can only wonder if he ever shares these flicks with his 6-year-old daughter, Emmeline (and if she thinks daddy is as cool as we do!). Christian Bale forgets his wifes name in Oscar acceptance speech?!
