Christian Bale, while promoting his new film "Terminator Salvation," spoke to Access Hollywood's Nancy O'Dell about his July 2008 blow up on the set of the film, which became public after an audio recording was released in February.
When O'Dell broached the topic of the on-set explosion that Bale directed towards "Terminator Salvation" director of photography, Shane Hurlbut, Bale jokingly said, "Do you want to talk about it?"

O'Dell asked Bale, from an actor's perspective, how the incident affected trust issues on the set. Bale replied, "I'll get to feel comfortable again… Trust is set up for creative purposes."
Bale also acknowledged that after a 77-day shoot, he did not want the four-minute incident to be the focus.
"I did not want that to overshadow the crew," he said.
O'Dell asked Bale if the incident changed how people viewed him and Bale replied, "I don't even think about that."
Bale admitted he gets deep into his characters and said, "I am myopic like that. Whatever I am doing, I get obsessed with it.
"I feel like I've said everything that needs to be said," he added.
