You don't mess with the Batman, even Christian Bale's estranged mom knows that. Last summer, she reported him to police following an alleged assault at London's Dorchester hotel.

Now in a new interview, 61 year old Jenny Bale is shedding light on her famous son's temper. She told the London Telegraph that she understood Bale's anger then, but that his f-bomb laced tirade against director of photography Shane Hurlbut on the set of the new Terminator film was "upsetting" for her to hear.

Speaking from her home in Bournemouth, Dorset, Mrs. Bale said: "I haven't

spoken to Christian about it, but I have listened to most of it and he was clearly very angry. He is a perfectionist and if you are doing an intense scene and someone is spoiling a shot, it takes time to get it back."

"It sounds as if a lighting engineer got in the shot so I can understand his anger but not the length of the tirade."

"People might now realize that that is his temper, they might understand a bit more. I wish he hadn't carried this on so long or so fiercely, it was upsetting to hear him."
