"It's been a miserable week for me. Listen, I know I have a potty mouth; everybody knows that now. The thing that I really want to stress is, 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. There is nobody that has heard that tape that is hit harder by it than me. I make no excuses for it, it is inexcusable and I hope that is absolutely clear." -- Christian Bale, calling into a Los Angeles radio station in February 2009 after an audio tape surfaced of him having a four-letter-word-crammed conniption on the set of "Terminator Salvation."
The freak-out, aimed at director of photography Shane Hurlbut, quickly went viral, with the actor's insta-classic threat, "Seriously, you and me man, we're [bleeping] done professionally," inspiring T-shirts and mash-ups.
