Bale Switches Accents For Batman Interviews

Welsh-born movie star CHRISTIAN BALE has ditched his British accent for interviews about new movie BATMAN BEGINS because fans want to hear the Caped Crusader sounding English.

The AMERICAN PSYCHO star is considered one of Hollywood's top dialect experts after switching from British to American characters in successive films with ease.

And Bale doesn't leave his accent skills on the set: "I just felt that when I'm not thinking about it I can hear that I get a slight Englishness coming into my accent.

"But I just feel that Batman is such an American character that in representing him in doing the interviews I don't want to be sounding English because that would be peculiar.

"I would expect people to be saying, 'What the hell is going on? Why do we have an English Batman?'"
