Christian Bale thanks Satan at the Golden Globes for inspiring his performance as Dick Cheney in 'Vice'
- Christian Bale won the best actor in a musical or comedy Golden Globe for playing former vice president Dick Cheney in the movie "Vice."
- During his acceptance speech, he thanked Satan.
Christian Bale got up on stage at the Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills on Sunday, and did the usual thanks that most do when they receive an award - spouse, kids, cast, crew, producer, and Satan.
Well, that last probably has never been said in an acceptance speech, but while accepting his Golden Globe for best actor in a musical or comedy for his performance as former vice president Dick Cheney in Adam McKay's "Vice," he felt it was right to thank the devil.
He also said that the only reason he got the role was because he can be "absolutely charisma free." Admittedly, his portrayal of Cheney in the unique biopic is as rigid and stiff as most of the footage you probably have seen of the real Cheney - which is why it's so great.

Bale also teased playing another polarizing figure in politics for his next role - "So Mitch McConnel next?," calling out the Kentucky senator.
It's probably a joke, but how he transformed into Cheney for "Vice" anything is possible.
