BALE'S BATMAN ADVICE

Access Hollywood spoke with Christian Bale about a myriad of topics, including San Francisco's Batkid, and gave some advice to incoming Batman actor Ben Affleck.

"I wish him all the best. He's a very experienced actor and filmmaker of his own. Our thing's finished and we always declared it was finished and it should be passed on to another actor and will be again after him," Bale told Access Hollywood. "The only thing I said to him is, look, just make sure he can take a piss without anyone having to help him because it's a little bit humiliating when you have to have somebody help you out of the costume."
