Christian Bale Thanks Satan For Inspiring His Portrayal Of Dick Cheney

After exprressing gratitude for wife Sibi Blazic and Vice co-stars Amy Adams, Steve Carell and Sam Rockwell, the British actor went on to thank the devil for his role in prepping for the character.

The Church of Satan, a religious organization dedicated to Satanism as codified in The Satanic Bible, was quick to bask in Bale's victory.

It was Bale's fourth Globe nomination.

The 44-year-old actor scooped the Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy award on Sunday, January 6, for his portrayal of former US Vice President Dick Cheney in "Vice" and made the audience at the Beverly Hilton Hotel laugh with his quip-filled speech that poked fun at himself.

She told the BBC that she had renounced Islam, and feared she would be forcibly returned to Saudi Arabia and killed by her family. The case follows the major worldwide backlash against the Saudi regime over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.

Bale, who is famous for his roles in films including American Psycho and The Dark Knight, said in an interview with GMTV in 2008 that there is a "great vintage of Welsh actors with Richard Burton and Anthony Hopkins" but he is not a "true Taffy" as he grew up in England. He said: "She knows the dumb cr@p that can come out of my mouth at times. So thank you for that advice, my love". Last night's Golden Globes were no different.

In favour: The Church of Satan tweeted Bale's praise at his comment, writing 'Hail Christian!

The actor's comment got plenty of laughs from Hollywood's elite, as he continued to joke politics saying, 'What do you think, [playing] Mitch McConnell next?'

Bale, in his acceptance speech, thanked Satan for helping him nail the role of the former vice president - who he dubbed a "charisma-free" asshole.
