Despite being an Award-winning director, Steven Spielberg said that he was rejected and refused by many actors in the past, from directing their films. He said, he had to convince a lot of producers and even actors to let them direct their films.
Things have changed now and he shares a good rapport with many actors in the industry, one among them is the Batman fame, Christian Bale. Spielberg said, he takes huge pride in Batman star Christian Bale's success.
"I take great pride in young actors who started off doing films with me and have then made careers for themselves," said Spielberg
"Nothing Christian Bale does has ever failed to impress me. He is fearless and he was fearless when he was 12 years old. I am impressed more and more with each role he takes. But in a quiet place in my own life I'll say, 'That's my boy'," he added.
Among the other actors that Spielberg shares good rapport with, is Harrison Ford, who featured as the lead in the popular adventure movie Indiana Jones franchise. "We always look at each other and say about the movie we are making, 'Are we really going to get away with this?' he said.
