Christian Bale thanked Satan in his Golden Globes acceptance speech.
The 44-year-old actor scooped the Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy award on Sunday, January 6, for his portrayal of former US Vice President Dick Cheney in 'Vice' and made the audience at the Beverly Hilton Hotel laugh with his quip-filled speech that poked fun at himself.
He said: "Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role."
Thanking "geezer" director Adam McKay, he added: "[McKay] said, 'I've got to be somebody who can be absolutely charisma-free and reviled by everybody'. So he went, 'Oh, that's got to be Bale.
"I will be cornering the market on charisma-free assholes. What do you think, Mitch McConnell next? That would be good, wouldn't it?"
