Actor Christian Bale said, he regrets working on “Terminator Salvation” and that he even turned down the role thrice before giving his nod to the sci-fi action film. The 43-year-old actor, who played John Connor in 2009 film said, he eventually accepted the part in order to prove to others that it was a bad decision.
“I said no three times.” I thought that the franchise… I went ‘Nah, there’s no story there.’ “There’s a perverse side to me, where people were telling me that there’s no way on god’s earth that I should take that role, and I was thinking the same thing. But when people started verbalising that to me, I started to go like, ‘Oh really? All right, well watch this then.’ So there was a little bit of that involved in the choice,” Bale told MTV in an interview.
The actor said the film is a “great thorn” in his side and he wishes the makers could have revived the film franchise. “It’s a great thorn in my side, because I wish we could have reinvigorated (the franchise). And unfortunately, during production, you could tell that wasn’t happening. It’s a great shame,” he said.
