Christian Bale recalls meeting Donald Trump: 'He thought I was Bruce Wayne'

Jimmy Fallon's ridiculously dumb impression of Donald Trump just got a little more realistic if Christian Bale was being honest with a short, but hilarious story about meeting the future POTUS while filming a Batman movie at Trump Tower. "We were filming on "Batman" in Trump Tower and he said, 'Come on up to the office, '" Bale said as he laughed his way through the short story.

"It was quite entertaining", Bale added. "I did decide, 'You know what, I might die, so maybe I should go to see someone who actually knows what they're talking about instead of just winging it, ' which is what I've always done".

The 44-year-old actor plays Dick Cheney, the former United States vice president, in Adam McKay's Vice, which also features Amy Adams, Sam Rockwell and Steve Carrell in pivotal roles.

Bale went on to burn Trump by referencing his very own possible alternate identity, "Individual-1".

Christian has also been shortlisted for a Golden Globe in the Best Performance By An Actor in a Motion Picture category.

Just how good of an actor is Christian Bale?

Amy Adams plays Lynne Cheney, the ambitious and supportive wife of Dick Cheney, who served as Vice President to President George W. Bush for two terms.

The film was written and directed by Adam McKay, and also stars Steve Carell as former USA secretary of defence Donald Rumsfeld and Sam Rockwell as President Bush.

The star - who has been married to Sibi Blazic since 2000 - has since lost the additional weight.

Vice is in cinemas on Christmas Day.
