What was more intriguing was his speech about Robert De Niro, which got cut off by the music.

Bale was vocal about his support for Robert De Niro and Robert Duvall backstage, telling reporters "I just told him he's the sh**. You see an actor of that caliber and Robert Duvall. I don't know if he's here those guys are the sh**."
