"Batman Begins" star Christian Bale was reportedly banned by the movie's producers from cruising public streets in the customized Batmobile movie car, following an accident recently. According to certain gossipy busybodies, a drunk Canadian motorist who "forgot to swerve" rammed the $1 million, big-block-powered Bat ride on a Toronto street, causing minor damage. Bale, who was on the way to the movie's Canadian premiere when the accident occurred, said driving the car was the "best part of the job" and that Canadians pronounce "chocolate" weird.
