Drew Barrymore and Christian Bale Had The Date From Hell

Drew Barrymore and Christian Bale Disaster Date

Drew Barrymore and Christian Bale dated? Yes, but only for a hot minute. Apparently Bale asked Barrymore out as teenagers and the duo survived only one ill-fated date together. Bale rarely discusses his personal life with the press but in an interview for Australian GQ he admitted, “We went to see some bloody awful horror film, and that was the end of it. She never called again.”

I guess at the time it seemed like a no-brainer for the duo to hang out. They both worked with Steven Spielberg and both were child stars that had a difficult time coping with fame and all its’ trappings as they entered adulthood.

The notoriously private Bale has been married to Sandra Blazic, since 2000 and they have a seven year old daughter. He rarely speaks of anything other than his work, but the press has still done a hatchet job on him at times. There has been the rumored trouble in his marriage, drama with his other family members, meltdowns while on set- we’ve kind of heard it all.

Barrymore had two short-lived marriages (to actor Jeremy Thomas and later to comedian Tom Green) before recently marrying Will Kopelman. Together they are expecting a child later this year.

I have a hard time imagining Bale and Barrymore ever making it as a couple. He seems so focused and explosive, where she is just cheery and flighty. The fights would likely have been epic!

Are you surprised that these two spent time together? Are you more surprised that Christian Bale admitted it? Tell us what you think in our comments section below!

      there is no revelation here cate. the fact that bale and barrymore  hooked was stated by bale in a 1998 interview. most people don’t know this because it was way before he became famous. and now he just mentions this because the reporter asks him about it he has to saying something. he just repeated exactly what he said long ago. so much for him revealing his private life now.

      by the way, did you know drew barrymore admitted to having a crush on bale in 2009 so that is much more recent. a crush 22 years after the above mentioned incident. just google it.
