A newly released audio tape of Christian Bale‘s tirade against director of photography Shane Hurlbut has many people questioning the actor’s emotional stability.

Hurlbut inadvertently ruined a scene when he walked on the “Terminator Salvation” set during filming, provoking a nearly four minute rant from Bale, in which he threatens to quit if Hurlbut is not fired.

The expletive-laced audio tape was sent by film execs to the film’s insurance company in case Bale quit.

Last summer Bale was arrested for allegedly assaulting his mother and sister before the London premiere of “The Dark Knight.”
