Christian Bale's inspiration for playing Patrick Bateman was an interview he saw of Tom Cruise on Letterman. He said that Tom just had this very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes. I can totally see it. Tom Cruise is a creepy soulless looking bastard. Haha!
American Psycho (Costume designer Isis Mussenden). The character of Patrick Bateman has many hobbies: moon-walking, business card critiquing, axes/chainsaws, and finally fashion. Lots of trendy 80s suit pieces. Sharp shoulders, fitted, and those oh-so-snazzy suspenders.
