For some reason I have got out of the habit of inducting Welsh Born Icons.
2005 was the year of the Welsh superhero, so now that Warner Bros have commissioned a sequel to Batman Begins for release in 2008, I have decided to add Christian Bale (born Haverfordwest 1974) to the august WBI body.
Did you know that he was so thin and weak after making The Machinist that he could only do one press up - and that with his trainer holding the back of his t-shirt - when he started bulking up for Bruce Wayne?
He must be bonkers. If he was cast in my life story - unlikely I agree - would he drink 20 cans of Stella and a box of red wine every day?
