We all remember when he was arrested just prior to the London premiere of “Dark Knight” for losing his temper with his mother and sister.  And it sounds like has made a habit of having hissies.

The “Machinist” actor was audio taped giving crew member Shane Hurlbut the verbal beatchristian-baleing of his life on the set of his new movie “Terminator Salvation” when he accidentally stepped into Bale’s line of sight during a scene.

During the tirade, Bale dropped the F-bomb 36 times, threatened to beat up the director of photography, and threatened to quit if he wasn’t fired.

The film company sent the tape of Christian’s boil-over to the movie’s insurance company in case Bale ended up quitting.  The audio file has been all over the internet in the past 24 hours.
