For Rep. Liz Cheney, the devil is in the details regarding Christian Bale’s Golden Globes speech.
The Republican Wyoming politician on Wednesday slammed Bale, who thanked Satan for inspiring him to play her father, former Vice President Dick Cheney, in the biographical comedy-drama “Vice.”
“Christian Bale finally had the chance to play a real superhero, and he clearly screwed it up,” Cheney said Wednesday of the former Batman actor on Fox News,
Bale, 44, won best actor in a comedy or musical for “Vice.”
He also recalled Adam McKay, the movie’s director, saying he wanted “somebody who can be absolutely charisma-free” to take the role.
“I’ll be cornering the market on charisma-free a–holes,” Bale said in his speech.
Cheney, who has not seen the movie, explained she’s “incredibly proud” of her dad and “honored to be his daughter.”
She then changed the subject of conversation.
“We’re in a situation where we’ve got really important work to do to get the border secure and to make sure that the Democrats stop playing games, come to the table,” she said.
Earlier this week, Cheney fired back at Bale over his being accused of assault by his mother and sister in 2008 — an incident for which he was not charged.
