Still maintaining the romanticism, he does not see the people who try to kill him as enemies but just as other people making him look like an unlike military man rather than a hero.

When interviewed, Bale has very simple reasons to offer as to why he prefers acting in the challenging positions. He says that he likes challenging himself to see how far he can go by acting in positions, which will take him to hell and bring him back. This shows that this kind of acting is in borne rather than being forced for he relaxes while acting but not forcing any element of it. He loves the challenging positions including wresting with snakes and swimming in snake-infested rivers. This is what he sees as the reality and is what he should take for him to feel contended with his acting. He loves the daredevil incidences he has to encounter in his acting for instance the part in which he is eating maggots for real. This is a part many people would not wish to be associated with.
