On Wednesday's The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Sharon Stone defended Christian Bale over backlash he has received from film crews. Stone, who was promoting her memoir The Beauty of Living Twice, was asked if she would like to atone for any on-set outbursts but she instead chose to defend Bale.

"I would not say so much for myself, but I can certainly say that I see that with such, you know, brilliant actors," the actress said. "Christian Bale, who completely transforms himself into someone else, whether he's playing George Bush or whether he's playing an anorexic or whether he's playing an OCD, you know, stockbroker, he becomes a different person."

In 2009, video surfaced of Bale yelling at a lighting person on the set of Terminator Salvation. While Bale apologized for the outburst, which left him labeled as difficult to work with, Stone doesn't think it was that big of a deal.

"People, you know, want to get up in his business while he's trying to completely transform into another person," said Stone. "Then he's like, 'Get away from me!' And then they want to criticize him for not being available to them. I find that a little bit ... you know, maybe they should just grow up."

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.
