But I really do think that Christian Bale‘s sincere letter of apology — for his insane rant about DP Shane Hurlbut on the set of "Terminator: Salvation" — on Huffington Post is very heartfelt.

Here are a few snippets of it below, with all the you-know-whats removed.

To Shane Hurlbut, and to my fans,
I’m so —— sorry that I lost control on the —- set of "Terminator Salvation." It was so —– inappropriate. I could try and make some kind of excuse, about the stress of carrying the success of a major franchise on your shoulders, or the mental intensity of an actor in the middle of an emotionally powerful scene, but I won’t patronize you. We both know that I could do this ——- job with my ——- eyes ——– closed. And this is a —-Terminator movie. There are no emotionally powerful scenes.
I know that these revelations have ——– shocked many of my fans, and I’m so ——- sorry. I want to kick my own ——– —. NO! NO! DON’T SHUT ME UP. Da de da de da, what don’t you ——–understand? You got any ——- idea about how —–sorry I —- am?
What? You mean Christian Bale didn’t write this? It’s a FAKE?
Wow. Sure sounds like him. Coulda fooled me.
How about you?
