'She Terrifies Me. My Wife Terrifies Me,' Christian Bale Speaks Out About His Wife

They have been married for 21 years now.

Marriage is not easy. It takes a lot of commitment and sincerity from both the partners and it's an institution that requires equal partnership at all levels. There are highs and lows in a marriage but the most important point is to stick together and see through those unpleasant phases of life together. Christian Bale and his wife, Sibi Blažić, have understood this and they have managed to be together and married for 21 years now.



The couple who got married in 2000 have often remained away from the limelight and worked together behind the shadows. But Bale's love and appreciation for Sibi has remained undiminished. She is a stunt driver and her job often terrifies Christian Bale in an appreciative manner. She worked with him in the Batman movies and speaking with Marie Claire, Bale had said: "My wife was a stunt driver, she was chasing me through the city in Batman. She was driving one of the cop cars. She can do 180s and stunts and all that. She terrifies me. My wife terrifies me."



Sibi and Bale had met through his friend and Little Women co-star Winona Ryder. Sibi was working as Ryder's personal assistant when they met and hit it off. They eloped and got married in 2000. Speaking with the Sydney Morning Herald, Bale had said: "Everyone was divorced in my family so I didn't have very healthy ideas about marriage. Then I met Sibi and suddenly it seemed a fantastic idea."

The couple is also very serious about keeping their personal life private despite him being one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood. He told Us Weekly, "[My wife] likes to be very private. And of course, I want to maintain that … but we have a great private life." He added: "She’s probably the most strong woman I’ve ever come across in my life."



He has, in turn, been a dedicated husband and has had nothing but love and adoration for his wife. He has had to transform himself physically a number of times for various roles and regarding that, he said: "She's had to be married to so many different characters over our marriage, and some women might say, 'Hey that's great! Variety is the spice of life.' I know that it truly would be impossible to do it without her, and she's such a good strong woman. I owe everything to her."



They do have a beautiful love story and may they grow happily forever!
