Actor Christian Bale thinks the US would be a better place to work if there were more than just "white dudes" in positions of power

Actor Christian Bale thinks the US would be a better place to work if there were more than just "white dudes" in positions of power. Bale believes a break away from "white dudes" being in control will lead to better culture and "more interesting" stories being told on screen, reports telegraph.co.uk.

"Our culture will be so much richer the day that we stop saying, 'Hey, it's all white dudes who are running things.' Whether that be Hollywood, whether that be Washington, you know," Bale said on "Built" web series. "We're going to get, in Hollywood, so much better films and so much more interesting stories being told and America will become the America that the rest of the world sees it as, that makes it unique," he added.

Bale shared that being born and raised in Britain and moving to the US has enabled him an outsider's perspective on what makes the country so welcoming. "As an Englishman, we recognise what makes this such a beautiful, brilliant country and (how) not to ruin that. It's the reason I moved here. It's the reason my kids have American accents. It's because... it's a country of inclusion and invitation," he said.
