London, July 28 : Christian Bale is pretty fed up of people dubbing him a sex symbol.
The Batman star was questioned about his new "pin-up" status at the London premiere of his second turn as the Caped Crusader 'The Dark Knight'.
Bale's reply, he would rather not be given the tag.
"Who isn't one these days? All you have to do is stand on this side of the red carpet and you're called a sex symbol," the Daily Express quoted him, as saying.
"There's no more to it than that," he added.
As for if his wife, film producer Sibi Blazic, minds the dramatic physical and mental transformations he undergoes to play his role to the fullest, Bale replied that the situation wasn't so bad, especially for one reason.
"She gets to sleep with a whole bunch of different men so maybe it's not so bad," he said.
The actor was also in the news for an altercation that took place with his mum and sister after which the two women accused him of assault.
