Say what you think about “Amsterdam,” but no one can deny the latest David O. Russell film has an impressive solidity. It’s hosted by Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, and John David Washington, who play three men who forge a lifelong friendship pact while serving in World War I and eventually find themselves investigating a Harmful conspiracy. However, supporting entities can also work with A-list stars like Robert De Niro, Rami Malek, Zoe Saldana, Timothy Olyphant, Taylor Swift and Chris Rock stacked together.
With so many names on the list, anyone involved in the film is likely to find someone impressed. In Christian Bale’s case, it happens to be Chris Rock.
“I remember his first day, I used to be so excited to meet him, I was a huge fan of his stand-up,” Bell said in a new interview with IndieWire. “Then he came and did something. … David [O. Russell] Suggesting him to tell me stories I didn’t know he would tell me is how David usually works. And I love it. “
Some might even say he likes it a little too much. Bell soon discovered that his budding friendship with Locke was holding him back at work, because Locke made him laugh so tiredly that he couldn’t understand the mindset of his character, Bert Berenson. Finally, the Oscar winner needs to inform the Oscar slap recipient that she may not communicate.
“And yet Chris was very humorous and I felt like I couldn’t act because once I laughed at Chris Rock, I just became a Christian,” Bell said. “So I need to go to him, I go to him, I love talking to you, we have mutual partners now, but I can’t. Since David didn’t let me do that movie, he probably just saw me in Lol. He needed me to be Bert and I forgot the easy way to be Bert.’”
Bell was eventually able to reprise the role and end the film, but he didn’t blame Locke for the ordeal. The “American Hustle” star simply sees isolation as an integral part of his acting process.
“I usually meet these incredible people, but I isolate myself,” he said. “Because if I get to know people too much, I simply can’t imagine what I’m doing in the scene.”
Amsterdam opens in cinemas on Friday, October 7th.
