Christian Bale reveals he envies the friendship in his new film Amsterdam

Christian Bale has revealed he and director David O Russell created a trio of characters in their new movie who had such “incredible friendship and loyalty” that they envied them and wished they had it in their own lives. The Oscar-winning actor, 48, stars as one of the three friends – alongside Margot Robbie and John David Washington – in the new historical comedy Amsterdam. Loosely based on real events in the 1930s, it follows the trio who witness a murder and become suspects themselves after being framed.
