Added DiffLines:

* ThrowItIn: There are two scenes that involved improvisation by Bale that was kept in the movie: the jump-rope scene (Bale crossing his arms was improvised) and the MoonwalkDance Bateman does, so as to hide his axe, shortly before killing Paul Allen (which was one of the only problems the author of the original novel had with the movie).

* FakeAmerican: Creator/ChristianBale, a Wel-''[[InsistentTerminology English]]'' actor, played Patrick Bateman in the film.

to:

* FakeAmerican: Creator/ChristianBale, a Wel-''[[InsistentTerminology English]]'' actor, played Patrick Bateman in the film. He spoke in an American accent at all times, and was so convincing and thorough with it that when he spoke in his normal English accent at the film's wrap party, everyone was surprised since they genuinely thought he was American.
* MethodActing: Bale took quite some extremes to invest himself into the character of Bateman. Besides the examples listed above in DyeingForYourArt and FakeAmerican, Bale also extensively studied the novel, distanced himself from others on set (as Bateman would have), and actually maintained the famous morning routine described at the start of the film.

** Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio was the original actor for Bateman before he had to drop out due to schedule conflicts. Imagine what THAT would've been like.

*** In the film there's also "peanut butter soup". You don't have to be a genius to be weirded out by that one ([[http://www.congocookbook.com/soup_and_stew_recipes/peanut_soup.html peanut soup]], sometimes using peanut butter to speed up cooking, does exist though-- and is quite tasty).
