In the new movie ‘Ford vs. Ferrari’, which recently premiered at the Venice Film Festival, Christian Bale and Matt Damon co-star together for the first time. Bale appears to have been impressed by his fellow A-lister, as in this exclusive interview, Christian explains that he really thinks Matt should move into directing.
01 Quote: Christian Bale
“He just, he’s very good at multi-tasking, you know? He can spin a lot of plates at the same time. I would always see the way he was observing things, the way he was talking with the camera operator, he understands camera moves, he understands the editing, he’s thinking about it, he aware of things like that. I just kind of go: I do one thing, that’s it. I’m very myopic with it, so I will never direct, but I hope he will direct me one day.”
And it looks like the feeling is mutual, as Damon says his pal would also do well behind the camera.
02 Quote: Matt Damon
“Ah, I think he’d be a better director than he’s saying. But, he is very focused on his role, he is yeah, yeah, so I know why he says that, but he’s wrong.”
