Recently in India to promote his upcoming Netflix film Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, in which he is playing Bagheera, Hollywood actor Christian Bale says he is not a method actor.

“People seem to think I’m a method actor. But I’m not one. I have not trained at all. Method acting requires training in the Stanislavski method (created by the Russian theatre artist Konstantin Stanislavski). I’ve never read a book on that. I’ve never studied anything around that for a second. I make it all up as I go along. It’s the uneducated method which is my method. A lot of it is trial and error,” he told Hindustan Times in a recent interview.

Talking about Netflix’s Mowgli being touted as a dark film, he said, “I disagree that this is not a happy film. There’s a lot of joy in this film; there’s joy in the fact that Mowgli is riding on the back of a panther (Bagheera) and running with the wolves and is howling at the moon — I guess everyone’s fantasy.”

On it being compared with the previous versions, he said, “There are deeper themes in the film. There are consequences that are akin to Kipling’s original writings. In my mind, there’s no competition with the other interpretations. I absolutely love the animation films and the recently released live-action film. I love Bare Necessities (the song in the 1967 animated Jungle Book) and Baloo. That’s the beauty of Jungle Book — you can have so many vast interpretations.”
