In the above audio clip, Christian Bale talks to L.A. radio jocks Kevin and Bean on KROQ/106.7 FM about his nuclear meltdown on the set of "Terminator Salvation"
over a DP walking on the set during filming.

But he started off by NOT getting mad at Kevin and Bean’s jokes at his expense all week. "It’s been a miserable week for me," he told the jocks on the phone. "I was driving in the car, and you guys made me laugh in the midst of all this craziness."

About whether he was out of line or justified, he admits: "I have no confusion whatsoever, I was out of order beyond belief. I was way out of order. I acted like a punk, I regret that, and there is no one that has heard that tape that is hit harder than me."

"It’s inexcusable," he says of his behavior.

He was also very much in character. In the scene, he says he was showing some of John Connor’s craziness. "I got annoyed and then what happened? I made it ugly.

It was half John Connor and half Christian there."

He says he and Shane Hurlbut are fine and have absolutely no issues.

And he also urges Michael Phelps to swim in the next Olympics. After all, all he did was smoke "a little weed."
