Bale also thanked Golden Globe for best actor in film or musical comedy, thanks also author and director Adam McKay, Oscar-winning scriptwriter for "The Big Short", to hire him to play Cheney in the movie.
The actress sucked that McKay was looking for someone "free of charisma" and therefore asked for the role.
"(McKay) said," I must find someone who is not charismatic and villified by all. "Then he said," Oh, it must be Bale, "Bale said on stage on Sunday.
He added that he is "reaching the market for idiots without charisma."

"Thanks to Satan for inspiring me to play this role," he continued.
Republican congresswoman Liz Cheney, daughter of former vice president, tweeted an answer to Bale where she referred to an assault on the actress in 2008.
"Satan has probably inspired him to do this," Cheney wrote, linking to a 2008 article on Bale's arrest.
The article refers to an event in a hotel room between the actor, mother and sister. Bale denied the accusation at that time, described the incident as "a deep personal case" and asked the media at a press conference to "respect my privacy in this matter."
