Batman star Christian Bale arrested by London police on suspicion of assault
From
July 22, 2008

Christian Bale, the actor who plays Batman, was arrested today for allegedly assaulting his own mother and sister before last night’s premiere of The Dark Knight.

The Welsh-born actor was questioned at a central London police station today over the incident which is thought to have taken place in his Dorchester Hotel suite on Sunday night.

Bale’s mother and sister, Jenny, 61, and Sharon, 40, made a formal complaint against the Hollywood actor yesterday.

The two women, who live in Dorset, went to a Hampshire police station to make their allegations. The complaint was then passed to the Metropolitan Police for further investigation.

Bale is alleged to have lashed out in the Park Lane hotel two days ago but police allowed him to attend the European premiere of the latest instalment of the Batman films in Leicester Square last night.

The actor, who also starred in American Psycho and Empire Of The Sun, joined co-stars Sir Michael Caine, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Aaron Eckhart on the red carpet.

This morning he voluntarily attended Belgravia police station, where he was arrested and questioned for four hours before he was released on bail.

The new Batman film, which contains the final complete performance by Heath Ledger, has already attracted huge interest after glowing reviews and a record opening weekend in the US . The 28-year-old Australian actor gave an Oscar-tipped performance as The Joker before he died from an accidental drugs overdose in January.

Sweet November – Lost without you

When KEANU REEVES and CHARLIZE THERON were still young and green in Hollywood…… Sweet November was shot. 

(I went on my first date in my life watching this film in the cinema when I was young too. :-P)

Overview

Nelson Moss (KEANU REEVES) and Sara Deever (CHARLIZE THERON) have nothing in common except an hour spent in DMV hell. She’s a charming spirit who brings out the best in men. He’s a workaholic executive whose only intimate relationship is with the bottom line…until he meets Sara.

Intrigued by each other, but not quite ready to commit, they settle on a rather unconventional courtship: a one-month trial, after which they’ll go their separate ways. No expectations. No pressure. No strings attached.

What neither of them counts on is falling in love.

The above overview is cited from http://www.sweetnovember.net/index_flash.html

Do you know in which city it is filmed in America? This is where I’m going to with Mr. Bouteiller this summer for 2 weeks! We will have our own ‘Sweet August’! 😛 (Hopefully, we can move there one day. It’s one of the dream city we want to live. 🙂
