Christian Bale and Sibi Blazic

Christian Bale loves "losers".

The 'American Hustle' actor - who has a nine-year-old daughter and three-month-old son with wife Sibi Blazic - prefers hanging out with people who have "failed miserably" than those who are successful because they are "much more fun".

Asked what his friends are like, he said: "One thing I've heard consistently said to me throughout my life is, 'You know what I've noticed about you, Christian? You hate hanging out with winners. You love losers. The more of a loser, the more you love 'em.'

"I hate the 'loser' title, but I do kind of realise there's something to it. The more successful you get, the more you have to fit into a certain kind of a successful mould.

"Successful people plan their days, and they waste no time whatsoever. It's all about quality, quality all day long. Losers waste their time. People who've failed miserably in their lives are much more fun."

The 40-year-old actor adores his former model wife - who he married in 2000 - but claimed he is "terrified" of her.

He said: "My wife was a stunt driver--she was chasing me through the city in 'Batman'. She was driving one of the cop cars. She can do 180s and stunts and all that. She terrifies me. My wife terrifies me."

And Christian admitted his spouse particularly loved his role in 'American Hustle' - because he had to gain weight.

He told WSJ magazine: "You know, my wife kind of liked Irv in 'American Hustle', because she looked really skinny standing next to me. That's what she said. She loved it. She was like, 'Keep getting bigger. I look fantastic and skinny.' "
