What IS Christian Bale’s wife’s name and why did he forget it? The actor won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in The Fighter but he forgot the name of his wife Sibi…who is also the mother of his child. Christian Bale has been married to Sibi Blazic since 2000.
Did Christian Bale really forget his wife’s name in the middle of his acceptance speech, or was he just choked up?
When he got up to accept his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, it appeared that Bale forgot his wife’s name. Bale thanked the usual people for his Oscar but as he got to his wife, he stammered and looked like he TOTALLY FORGOT. The camera went to his wife’s face which looked like a mixture of joy and awkwardness.
Christian Bale is often in the headlines for his talent and his sometimes extreme behavior. Last year, a rant by Christian Bale was audiotaped and it was chilling. It happened on the set after a director of photography accidentally ruined a scene by walking onto the set. Bale lost it, screaming, yelling and threatening to quit if the bosses didn’t fire the guy.
