Christian Bale Revealed He Hit Heath Ledger For Real in The Dark Knight

Christian Bale has just revealed that late Heath Ledger (the Joker) insisted that he should hit him for real in The Dark Knight’s interrogation room scene.

The The Dark Knight is regarded as the greatest superhero film of all time. Unfortunately, death took the legendary Joker away so quick, the best anyone can do is to celebrate Ledger role and contribution to The Dark Knight’s Joker character, which is one of his greatest achievement.

Bale talked about how Ledger:

“As you see in the movie, Batman starts beating the Joker and realizes that this is not your ordinary foe. Because the more I beat him the more he enjoys it. The more I’m giving him satisfaction. Heath was behaving in a very similar fashion. He was kinda egging me on. I was saying, “You know what, I really don’t need to actually hit you. It’s going to look just as good if I don’t.” And he’s going, “Go on. Go on. Go on….” He was slamming himself around, and there were tiled walls inside of that set which were cracked and dented from him hurling himself into them. His commitment was total.”
