Christian Bale won Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for "Vice" and thanked “Satan” for helping him nail the role of former Vice President Dick Cheney in his Golden Globe acceptance speech.
"Look at all of us! A bunch of lucky buggers," "Vice" star Christian Bale says to the audience accepting the award for best actor in a comedy or musical. "Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration" to play former vice president Dick Cheney in the film, he jokes, and also asks who his next "charisma-free role" will be: "Mitch McConnell, maybe?"
“He was a wonderful family man — he’s a great dad, he’s an avid reader, he has a brain like a vice and he constantly reads history,” the actor said in an interview last month. ”He was very laid-back. He would have been very happy to be a lineman in Wyoming if he hadn’t met Lynne, who said to him, ‘No, that doesn’t cut it. You need some ambition.’ What would have been if they hadn’t met?”
