Ben Stiller announced the Welsh-born actor as the winner in the best actor in a comedy category, and the star said on stage: “Alright, I guess we’ve been put in a comedy …”

As he thanked his friends, he went on: “Oh my god mate, you are phenomenal … cheers mate … ”

Last week Christian baffled fans on stage when he picked up the accolade for Best Actor at the Golden Globes.

As he took to the stage to accept his award, most viewers did not even realise that the star is British.

While some admitted that they’d been expecting him to speak in his famous American Batman voice, others accused Christian of “putting on” a Cockney accent – and asked whether he was “method acting”.

One wrote: “No British person has ever seemed like they are doing a terrible fake British accent as much as Christian Bale.”

Another added: “Christian Bale picks a new accent every morning, I love him.”

A third asked: “So I knew Christian Bale was Welsh, but when did he become cockney?
