(Newser) – Christian Bale's expletive-filled rant on the set of Terminator Salvation leaked on TMZ today. A few months back, Bale exploded when a director of photography wandered on-set during a scene. "Seriously, man we're f***ing done professionally," Bale screamed during his 4-minute tirade. Film execs sent a recording of it to insurers in case Bale walked off the project.

"No don't just be sorry, think for one f***ing second," Bale shouted. "Are you professional or not? Do I f**king walk around and rip that—no, shut the f**k up Bruce... Am I gonna walk around and kick your f**king lights down?... F**k's sake man you're amateur." Click on the second TMZ link below to hear it, if you're ready.
