"I still haven't seen it. I will see it," Bale told Variety at the premiere of Thor: Love and Thunder in Hollywood last week. "Listen mate, it's amazing how few films I see

Every director I work with, I've seen a couple of their films and they're always looking at me going, 'Are you kidding?' I like to really savor films and I don't watch too many.
