Christian Bale, Why Do You Hate Newsies? | Thought Catalog.

Dear Christian Bale,

Why do you hate Newsies?

Newsies. Don’t pretend you don’t know it. 1992. Disney. Musical. Turn-of-the-century newspaper boys. Singing. Dancing. A tinge of underage homoeroticism. Yeah, that Newsies.

It was a formative film in your career as a child actor, and it was eclipsed entirely by the 1993 Nazi sad-fest Swing Kids, which is widely considered to be a “better” film.

I love you, Christian Bale, but your well-documented and long-running hatred of Newsies is depressing to the film’s devoted fans. (They are mostly journalism students, gay teenagers, and aspiring slash fan-fiction writers).

Personally, I’ve looked it up so many times that my Google search bar completes “Christian Bale” with “hates Newsies.
