Actor Christian Bale is known for two things: one, his interesting choice of movie characters, and two, as a lovable charmer.

While fans never get tired of seeing the handsome Welsh-born actor on their screens, they would be surprised to realize that there is not much information about his private life on the internet.

The actor is private when it comes to his personal life and relationship. While he is successful in his career, he also hit the jackpot with love. Before meeting Blažić, the actor had given up on wedded bliss as he grew up seeing a lot of failed marriages. He said:

"Everyone was divorced in my family, so I didn't have very healthy ideas about marriage. Then I met Sibi, and suddenly it seemed a fantastic idea."

SIBI BLAŽIĆ DID STUNTS IN "THE DARK KNIGHT RISES"

Blažić is a woman of many talents. She shows her versatility in subtle ways, unlike her husband, who has to be in front of the camera. On her profile, you will find many titles attached to her name, including actress, makeup artist, former model, assistant, and stuntwoman.

The actress graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in business. Blažić was also featured in the late Kevyn Aucoin's inspirational guidebook "Face Forward."

As an assistant, she worked with 1990s movie icon Winona Ryder. Her husband once joked that he was terrified of her because of her incredibly fierce stunt skills.

He revealed that as a stuntwoman, Blažić chased him through the city in one of the cop cars when he starred in "Batman." The beautiful brunette is best known for her work on "Ford v Ferrari," "The Dark Knight Rises," and "George of the Jungle."

SIBI BLAŽIĆ IS OF SERBIAN DESCENT

Blažić was born in Chicago, but she is of Serbian descent. She was born on April 14, 1970, to Belgradian-born parents Slobodan Blažić and Nadezda Topalski.

While she is known as Sibi, her birth name is Srboslava, also written as Srbislava. Before moving to the United States, her parents got married in the Belgrade municipality of Vracar, Serbia.

SIBI BLAŽIĆ MET CHRISTIAN BALE THANKS TO WINONA RYDER

Being the busy worker bee that she is, Blažić met her husband while working. The pair reportedly crossed paths for the first time while the former model worked as a personal assistant to Bale's longtime friend and co-star Winona Ryder.

Sparks flew when they met, and their love story started. They were not your regular celebrity couple and skipped the traditional marital route and headed straight to Vegas, where they tied the knot in January 2000.

Some people would consider this a stunt, but for Blažić, stunts are not unusual. What started as a whirlwind romance has been going strong for over two decades.

Back in 2008, the actor said that he loves his family so much that he would kill and die for them.

In a 2012 interview, Blažić's husband said that he came from a dysfunctional family, leading him to believe that marriage was not a venture he wanted to explore.

Today, he would proudly yell how much he loves his wife from a rooftop if he had to. Blažić changed the life of the confirmed bachelor, and he now believes that having a family and being a father is everything.

Bale also revealed that he owed much of his success to her. The actor said it would have been impossible to be a fan favorite without his wife.

SIBI BLAŽIĆ IS A HAPPY MOTHER OF TWO CHILDREN

In 2005, they welcomed their first child, an adorable daughter named Emmeline Bale. Early in March 2018, the couple revealed that they were expecting another baby. Later that year, Joseph Bale, Blažić's second child with her husband, was born.

Since becoming a father, Bale has gushed about the wonders of parenthood and having a beautiful family. However, he once revealed that his children had never seen any of his movies. He mentioned that the two little ones did not fully understand that their father was famous.

Back in 2008, the actor said that he loved his family so much that he would kill and die for them. Fans know how much he cares for his Bale clan; no killing or dying is necessary to prove that.

The actor, who had wanted to work with New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi, said when he read the "Thor: Love and Thunder" script, he fell in love with it, and so did his family.

However, there were conflicts in his schedule, and he felt he could no longer do the part. Blažić and the kids were not ready to hear any excuses.

According to Bale, they gave him marching orders, and he had no choice but to obey. He said:

"There were some potential scheduling conflicts. I said to my family, 'I don’t think it's going to work out,' and they went, 'No, you make it work out. You're doing this, Dad.' They gave me my marching orders, and I dutifully obeyed."

SIBI BLAŽIĆ LIKES PRIVACY

Despite being fiercely reserved when talking about his family, Bale occasionally mentions his wife. In 2017, the actor gushed about Blažić in an interview. He said:

"[My wife] likes to be very private. And of course, I want to maintain that … but we have a great private life."

Bale added that Blažić is the strongest woman he knows and confessed that thinking about her often turns him into a tearful softie. It can not get any sweeter than that.

SIBI BLAŽIĆ IS MARRIED TO MANY CHARACTERS

After being married to Bale for so long, Blažić has seen her fair share of his character switches. The "Ford v Ferrari" actor once confessed that his wife prefers some of his characters to him. He said to People:

"My wife definitely had favorites. She was like, 'Ah, I miss him. He's gone...I want you to be that character again.'"

The actor revealed that Blažić loved his Trevor Reznik character from "The Machinist," a role that made him lose 60 pounds to look like a troubled insomniac.

According to Bale, the characters are born before they start shooting a movie. This means Blažić has been married to so many different characters.

Although Blažić enjoys privacy, she often supports her husband on red carpets. They appeared together at the recent premiere of "Thor: Love And Thunder" where her husband made his Marvel debut as a villain.

In July 2022, she accompanied him with the children as they attended Dolce & Gabbana's 10th anniversary Alta Moda Women's Show in Sicily.
