While doing press for his new film, THE FLOWERS OF WAR, Christian Bale spoke a little bit about the upcoming THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

* “How long will you let the pain and loss define your life? Walking around chasing bad guys is very heroic and attracts attention, but at the end it all accounts for, as a means to deal with the pain of a huge loss.”

* “We agreed that Bruce Wayne is absolutely sincere as Bruce Wayne, and as Batman utterly sincere," the Oscar-winning actor added. "But Bruce Wayne, the playboy, is a pure facade, it's a lie he has, somehow, to control one side of your soul that's not really under control. In fact, only Alfred knows who he is. It's time for Bruce Wayne to face the pain, that has always stirred his life.”

* On working with Team Nolan: “Shooting in seven different locations, chosen by Nolan was a pleasure. It's really a privilege to work well, especially with the extraordinary troupe of actors, who always manage to meet Chris' expectations.”

* On his final turn as The Dark Knight: “We agreed that Bruce Wayne is absolutely sincere as Bruce Wayne, and as Batman utterly sincere. But Bruce Wayne, the playboy, is a pure facade, it's a lie he has, somehow, to control one side of your soul that's not really under control. In fact, only Alfred knows who he is. It's time for Bruce Wayne to face the pain, that has always stirred his life.”
