It’s the Tommy Girl Hour of Crazy since this is my second post in a row on everyone’s least favorite homo-midget. If I go for three, this website will suddenly become Hubbardlisted and anyone who has ever commented on a Tommy post will never be heard from again. We’ll all become Suri’s slaves. Let’s not cross that spaceship bridge….
While watching American Pyshco, I just knew that Patrick Bateman’s “skin-crawling” smirk and crazy eyes seemed strangely familiar. That’s because Christian Bale used Tommy Girl as his inspiration for the sexiest serial killer in North America. But instead of violently jumping on couches, Patrick Bateman violently jumps on cooches.
Mary Harron, the director of American Psycho, told BlackBook Magazine about how she developed the character of Patrick Bateman with Christian Bale, “It was definitely a process. We talked a lot, but he was in L.A. and I was in New York. We didn’t actually meet in person a lot, just talked on the phone. We talked about how Martian-like Patrick Bateman was, how he was looking at the world like somebody from another planet, watching what people did and trying to work out the right way to behave. And then one day he called me and he had been watching Tom Cruise on David Letterman, and he just had this very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes, and he was really taken with this energy.”
Cue Tommy screaming to Christian, “You and me are fucking done professionally!”
HAHAHAHA! Doesn’t it make your soul sing to think that a crazed maniacal lunatic like Tommy was the inspiration for a crazed maniacal lunatic like Patrick Bateman?! They both make my asshole clench up like a cold wind is passing through, so this makes all kinds of sense! The only difference is that I’d probably unclench my fuck part for Patrick as long as he put the chainsaws, rats and cheese in the other room.
