Dick Cheney's daughter didn't take kindly to Christian Bale comparing her father to the devil.
Rep. Liz Cheney (R—Wyo.) slammed the actor, who won the Golden Globe for Best Actor, Musical or Comedy, for his portrayal of the former vice president in "Vice," after he said Satan inspired the role.
“Satan probably inspired him to do this, too. Christian Bale arrested for ‘assault on mother and sister,'” Liz tweeted late Sunday night, linking to a story from The Independent about Bale's 2008 bust.

The charges against Bale were later dropped but this just shows that Representative Cheney is a staunch defender of her father.
Bale's reps said at the time of the arrest, "Christian Bale attended a London police station, on a voluntary basis, in order to assist with an allegation that had been made against him to the police by his mother and sister. Mr. Bale, who denies the allegation, cooperated throughout, gave his account in full of the events in question, and has left the station without any charge being made against him by the police. At this time, there will be no further comment by Mr. Bale."
