Joining them in the incredible ensemble are Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Zoe Sadaña, Mike Myers, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Taylor Swift, Rami Malek, Robert De Niro and more.
Yet despite the glowing cast, Bale has confessed that he avoids his co-stars on set, telling GQ: “I’m literally like: ‘I can’t do this because I will be the worst actor you’ve ever seen if we keep on chatting, you know, with Amsterdam, I had to say that to Chris Rock. I had to go there and say that to him. I f***ing love his stand-up. And when he arrived I was like, ‘Ah, wow, great. Yeah, how you doing, man?’ Chatting a little bit. And then I went to do a scene, and I went, ‘Oh, my God. I’m just Christian, standing here, being a fan of Chris Rock.’ So I went to him. I went, ‘Mate, I got to keep my distance.’ Have you tried swimming and laughing at the same time? I don’t know about you. I’d drown. I cannot laugh and swim at the same time. It’s that. So I had to, much as I would’ve loved to have kept on chatting and talking.”
