Christian Bale was all smiles as he and wife Sibi Blazic attended a holiday celebration at their daughter Emmeline Bale‘s school in the Pacific Palisades, CA on Friday (November 19).

Despite a less than friendly history with the paparazzi, the even actor managed to flash photogs a friendly smile as he and his family returned to their car following the Thanksgiving festivities.

Meanwhile, at a recent press event for his new movie The Fighter, Christian openeed up about his thoughts of the title the upcoming Batman flick, The Dark Knight Rises.

“I don’t even know if that’s true,” he said when I asked him what he thought of the title.

Earlier this month, director Christoper Nolan revealed to the LA Times the new title, but hasn’t spoken to his actors yet.

“Until Chris tells me, I don’t know,” Christian added.

Shooting for The Dark Knight Rises commences in May next year. It’s slated for release on July 20, 2012.

Understandably, Christian Bale says he doesn’t like sitting down for an interview. That may explain why he insists that if one is done, it appears in Q & A format, as in the new Esquire.

“I want to be able to just act and never do any interview,” he tells the mag, “but I don’t have the balls to stand up to the studio and say, ‘I’m never doing another interview in my life!’ So I tip my hat and go, ‘Okay mister! All right mister! I’ll go do the salesman job!”

ESQUIRE: “And you don’t want to talk about your personal life or family background either.”

BALE: “Look, I’ve got incredible pride for my family. I’ve absolutely fallen into that cliché of a dad who could just happily talk about my daughter endlessly. But it’s not what I’m about in terms of being an actor. I don’t want people to know about that.”

ESQUIRE: “Why not?”

BALE: “I don’t want people to know me.”

ESQUIRE: “Why not?”

BALE: “Because that buggers up my job.”

ESQUIRE: “How does it do that?”

BALE: “Because if you know something about somebody, it gets in the way of just watching the guy as the character.”

ESQUIRE: “But that’s not really true. If you really disappeared into your role, people wouldn’t realize it was the same guy from movie to movie.”

BALE: “No! It’s like painting behind the radiator — I’d know about it even if nobody else does.”
