Model and actor Teresa Palmer jumped into her verified Instagram account so as to confirm the news about a funny misunderstanding.
On June 4, Palmer, who announced back in February 2021 that she is expecting her fourth child with her actor husband Mark Webber, went back to 2015 and mentioned her experience with actor Christian Bale; as fans might remember, in an interview in 2015, Bale stated that he thought his ‘Knight of Cups’ co-star Palmer a real stripper during the filming because of her method acting.
At that time, Bale said during an interview with Evening Standard:
“We were filming in a strip club, and Teresa Palmer’s there in her little silver hot pants and I’m asking her how long she’d been dancing for? Does she enjoy it? What got her into it? I had no idea that she was an actress until about a week after working with her. Suddenly, I saw a billboard with her face on it and I went ‘What?‘”
In order to remind her fans and followers of this misunderstanding, she released the screenshot of the interview and added a note that reads:
“Funny story- when I was first introduced to him by Terry I noticed he was using an American accent (he’s Welsh) so I figured he was method acting. Having clocked this I quickly jumped on the bandwagon and made up an elaborate backstory for my character and never actually told him the truth during filming.”
Palmer, who portrayed a playful nightclub stripper named ‘Karen‘ in the 2015 dated drama film by Terrence Malick, continued her words as follows:
“I remember thinking at the time ‘I guess this is what all the fancy actors do, better up my game!'”
