Christian Bale Confesses to Getting Dumped by Drew Barrymore
Remember those awkward middle school movie dates — they were mortifying, right? Well, probably not so much for Drew Barrymore. She went on a middle school date with none other than Batman himself, Christian Bale. In the June/July issue of AustralianGQ, Christian admits that he and Drew shared a single date when he was 13 and she was 12. Aww.
However, the teenage romance with Drew was a bust! Christian reveals, “We went to see some bloody awful horror film, and that was the end of it. She never called again.” That’s way harsh, Drew.
In addition to their ill-fated date, the two shared a connection to Hollywood royalty as kids. Drew, now 37, had her breakthrough role in Steven Spielberg’s E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial — a star turn that came just 5 years before Christian, now 38, starred in Spielberg’s Empire of the Sun.
