In news you might expect to hear about a particularly gullible toddler and not the President of the United States, actor Christian Bale revealed that President Donald Trump once mistook him for Bruce Wayne, the alter ego of Batman, a fictional character who Bale portrayed in Batman Begins, Batman: The Dark Knight, and Batman: Dark Knight Rises.
Bale was speaking with spice-of-life-themed Hollywood website Variety when he recalled the time he was filming Batman at Trump Tower and found himself invited to the office of the future president, who mistook him for the billionaire playboy.
I met him, one time. We were filming on ‘Batman’ in Trump Tower and he said, ‘Come on up to the office.’
I think he thought I was Bruce Wayne because I was dressed as Bruce Wayne. So he talked to me like I was Bruce Wayne and I just went along with it, really. It was quite entertaining. I had no idea at the time that he would think about running for president.
It’s too bad it was Bale that met with Trump and not former Batman actor Michael Keaton, as the meeting may have gone a lot differently in that case…
