Christian Bale won a Golden Globe tonight for his role in The Fighter, and he thanked his lovely wife. But who is she?
Bale married the Chicago native with a Serbian background, Sandra “Sibi” Blazic, on January 29, 2000. They have one child together, 5-year-old daughter Emmaline.
Although Sandra, who goes by “Sibi,” has a practical business degree, she was a makeup artist, model, and Winona Ryder’s personal assistant prior to marrying Bale. She’s still reportedly good friends with Winona.
Bale, who is known for his mood swings, and rants, and for really getting into each character he plays (method acting), once spoke about how Sibi deals with his mercurial moods. He told Starpulse in 2009 (via Famecrawler):
“My attitude does change at home, depending on which character I’m playing, but Sibi likes that. She thinks it’s quite cool. You can look at it in two ways. You can think, ‘That poor woman, forced to put up with that.’ Or, ‘What an incredibly lucky woman, who gets to be with all these different, guys all the time.’”
“I have a very strong wife. She’s incredibly strong and feisty, she doesn’t take any nonsense and I love it!”
