    Christian Bale recalled meeting the future president while dressed as Bruce Wayne in an interview with Variety. He talked about how it was when they were filming in the Trump Tower that Trump called him up to his office. “We were filming on ‘Batman’ in Trump Tower and he said, come on up to the office,” Bale recalled.

    However, Trump seemed convinced that Bale was actually Bruce Wayne. Not Christian Bale, the actor, but the caped crusader himself.

    As the two conversed, Trump addressed Bale as if he were the fictional billionaire playboy. “I think he thought I was Bruce Wayne,” Bale later recounted. “So he talked to me like I was Bruce Wayne,” he said. Though he is British, Bale said he maintained his American accent throughout the meeting, playing along with the absurdity. The whole affair was, in his words, “quite entertaining.”

    Many fans also claimed to be not as shocked by the interaction due to the same reasons. “Trump thinking Christian Bale was actually Bruce Wayne is very on brand for him,” a user on X commented. Whereas other users joked about Trump Mistaking him for his iconic character Patrick Bateman instead.
