Specifically, he gave a shout out to Satan for helping him capture the essence of former Vice President Dick Cheney in "Vice," as Variety said Bale was "widely praised" for his work on the part, "seemingly disappearing into the role of the resilient and ruthlessly ambitious politician" — even gaining 60 pounds.Considering how many deals the Devil has made in Hollywood, I guess it seems only fair...
"Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration on how to play this role," Bale said, drawing smiles and laughs from the Hollywood crowd.
The Church of Satan enjoyed it, too
Ye olde Church of Satan also got a charge out of Bale's thank you to their hero, noting on Twitter: "To us, Satan is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. As Mr. Bale's own talent and skill won him the award, this is fitting. Hail Christian! Hail Satan!"
