Christian Bale Met His Wife Through This ‘Stranger Things’ Star

Bale is a megastar, probably best known for his role as Batman in The Dark Knight trilogy. He’s been acting since he was 13, and was most recently seen in Ford v Ferrari in 2019. With award nominations under his belt, the English actor is an A-list Hollywood star. 

A Stranger Things star is responsible for putting a modern-day fairytale into motion. Christian Bale wanted nothing to do with marriage, but then he met Winona Ryder’s assistant.

Ryder worked with Bale while filming Little Women. They became good friends during the filming of the movie, which was released in December 1994. While they each went on to careers that made them both household names, they have remained friends. Both are private people — as private as one can be as a Hollywood superstar — but Ryder once went on record calling Bale a best friend.
