Christian Bale revealed earlier this year that Pantera was a huge influence on his character in “The Big Short.” In his full statement, Christian said “PANTERA ‘By Demons Be Driven’ — a fantastic song to begin with. This is how Mike Burry unwound. This is actually how he calmed down. He would listen to it all day long in his headphones.”
While that was cool as hell to hear from Christian, last night it got even more badass! “The Big Short” took home the Oscar for “Best Adapted Screenplay,” and the heavy metal icons were mentioned in front of Hollywood’s elite! While it was a quick mention, it’s better than nothing! Enjoy the best part of the Academy Awards below!
