It's amazing to see how far Christian Bale has come in his career, but it was bound to happen. He's always been an amazing actor. One of his first major roles was in Steven Spielberg's Empire of the Sun, which is one of my favorite movies of all time. This is one of Bale's first interviews ever which was conducted around the time he made the film, in 1987. The person interviewing him is Gene Shalit. Thanks to Reddit user punisher2404.
