Christian Bale Makes Out With Adam McKay at Critics' Choice Awards

Christian Bale was pretty excited to take home the Critics' Choice Award for Best Actor in a Comedy on Sunday night, so much so that he started smooching everyone in sight!

After Workaholics star Adam DeVine announced Bale as the winner -- for his role in the comedy The Big Short, about the 2008 housing crisis -- the actor gave a celebratory kiss to wife Sibi Blazic, then turned to the film's director Adam McKay, and laid one on him as well.

"That was just a lovely makeout session with my life and with Adam and with Charles [Randolph, The Big Short screenwriter]," Bale said in his acceptance speech. "We all really got to know each other very well on this film."

The actor called McKay -- who was previously best known for his collaborations with Will Ferrell, including Anchorman, Talladega Nights, and the Funny or Die comedy website -- "absolutely phenomenal, brilliant and funny," during his acceptance speech, and then got semi-serious when thanking his family.

"First of all, my wife. It's so lovely to be able to play dress up for a living, and she holds everything together whilst I get to go play dress up," said Bale, who is also nominate for an Oscar for his Big Short role. "My daughter as well, who kicks me in the nuts just like my wife does, keeping me on the straight and narrow."

McKay and Bale shared another smooch on stage later in the show, when the cast and crew accepted the award for Best Comedy.

"That's collaborative love between Christian and I," the director joked in his acceptance speech. "Don't judge it. It's what fuels movies like this."
