Christian Bale has some toilet advice for Ben Affleck... it's The Dredge

Who will play Susan Boyle and what’s Miley up to now? All that and the rest of the day’s celebrity dirt.

EVERY WEEKDAY MORNING, DailyEdge.ie rounds up the best of the day’s celebrity dirt – from the top to the very bottom.

Christian Bale has given advice to his Batman successor, Ben Affleck. The actor is currently promoting his new movie, Out of the Furnace, so had no choice but to weight-in on the controversial casting decision.

He told Access Hollywood that he wishes Affleck “all the best” and that he’s sure he’ll “make [the role] his own”.

When asked if he had any advice for the new Batman, Bale said:

No, the only thing I said to him is just make sure he can take a piss without anyone having to help him, because it’s a little bit humiliating, which I went through when you have to have somebody kind of help you out with the costume in order to be able to do that. So that’s my main piece of advice for him.

Morto, Batman needs help going to the loo.

It looks like Meryl Streep is in line to play Susan Boyle in an upcoming biopic about her rise to fame. The Scottish singer revealed that Streep had been approached after she refused to act in it herself.

In what world is Meryl Streep not always the first choice, even over the actual person being portrayed?

Miley Cyrus is sick of your crap. She performed on the X Factor over the weekend with a suspiciously tame performance– well, when you take the last few into consideration.

Miley quickly tweeted herself in a rather unsettling exchange.




love always, me.

However, it wasn’t just herself reassuring herself. Mullingar’s own Niall Horan was also tweeting his support.
