Golden Globes 2019: Everyone Just Realised Christian Bale Is British (Again)

It's time for our annual reminder that Christian Bale doesn't actually speak like Batman.

Bale just accepted the Best Actor award for his performance as former US Vice President Dick Cheney in Vice --  and Twitter is still reeling from hearing his extremely British accent.

"What a bunch of lucky buggers we are, right?" he asked the Globes crowd, sounding as though he was auditioning for the role of Fagin in Oliver Twist.

The Welsh-born actor went on to trash US politician Mitch McConnell and thank Satan for "inspiration" but viewers could not get over the fact that he was speaking in such a ~Dickensian~ manner.

Even though we've definitely all heard Christian Bale's natural accent before in plenty of other award ceremonies, we seem to fall under a collective amnesia every damn year.

Sorry Christian, just like Saoirse Ronan and Idris Elba, we're going to keep forgetting you're British until the day we die.
