Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) goes to dinner in American Psycho

Bret Easton Ellis met with American Psycho director Mary Harron and Christian Bale when Bale was in contention for the role of Wall Street serial killer Patrick Bateman, and recalls that Bale arrived looking and acting just like his literary creation. Ellis told MovieMaker: “He was in full Patrick Bateman mode in terms of the hair, the suit and the way he was talking. And it was incredibly distracting. And amusing, but then it became less amusing as he kept it going… I told him, at a certain point, you know you can stop this. It’s unnerving me. But jokingly. It was kind of like — it was unnerving in a way. I felt he didn’t need to keep it up, though I think he’s just that kind of actor.”
