(AP Photo/Warner Bros.) (Newser) – Christian Bale finally has something worth screaming about: a dead body in his own backyard. While the actor was busy filming Terminator: Salvation—and throwing his infamous tantrum—the body of a missing man lay buried outside his New Mexico rental home. Police found the body of Michael Snyder, who had been missing for eight years, last week. His ex-wife has since been arrested and charged murder, notes the Daily News. The outburst-prone star didn't know about the corpse, notes TMZ.
