For all the love Christian Bale has for his wife, he admits that Sibi Blazic terrifies him. All for good reason of course. When Bale was shooting the Dark Knight Rises in 2012, Blazic was a stunt driver and was chasing Bale all around the city. As Bale later revealed, Blazic was in one of the cop cars and is quite proficient in doing 180s and other jaw-dropping stunts. While Blazic certainly seems to be the ‘do it all’ kind of woman, she has a soft side to her. Over the years, Bale has been open about how Blazic has helped to shape him into the man he has become. So, for this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Sibi Blazic.
Srbislava Blazic was born on the 14th of April 1970, in Chicago, Illinois. The only child of Slobodan Blazic and Nadezhda Topalski, Blazic’s parents are originally from Serbia and had Blazic after their move to the US. To make the transitioning process easier for Blazic, her parents assigned her an English name, Sandra. Born and raised in Chicago, not much is known about Blazic’s early life. She graduated from a local high school in Chicago in 1988 and went off to the University of Southern California. Blazic also made the move to advance her career as a model, an interest that she had developed during the senior year of her high school. She later graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business.
Blazic worked as a model for most of her early years but an increasing interest in movies drew her towards Hollywood. She took an interesting route to Hollywood and first worked as a make-up artist and later as a personal assistant. In 1977, Blazic started working as an assistant to producer Jordan Kerner and was involved in the production of George of the Jungle and Red Corner (1997).
Blazic continued her work over the years but could never find the success she wanted to. In 1999, Blazic started working as a personal assistant to Winona Ryder and worked with Ryder on a few movies including Girl Interrupted, Autumn in New York, and Lost Souls. Blazic also participated in a few other movies like The Machinist (2004), Vice (2018), and Ford v Ferrari (2019). She was a part of the stunt crew for The Dark Knight Rises (2012) and Ford V Ferrari (2019). Her husband, Christina Bale who starred as the Dark Knight, was quite appreciative and amazed at his wife’s work in The Dark Knight Rises.
“My wife was a stunt driver — she was chasing me through the city in Batman. She was driving one of the cop cars. She can do 180s and stunts and all that. She terrifies me. My wife terrifies me.”
Sibi Blazic has an estimated net worth of USD 4 Million which she accumulated through her professional endeavors in Hollywood. If we look at her husband’s fortune it shades different light. Christian Bale has an astonishing net worth of $120 Million as of 2021.
Sibi Blazic has been happily married to Christian Bale and the pair have been together for two decades. Before meeting Blazic, Bale would often state how he would never get married, and given the history of divorce in his family, things were far from ideal for Bale. However, things changed after he met Blazic. At the time, she was working as a personal assistant to Winona Ryder. The pair began dating soon after and eloped to Vegas in 2000 to tie the knot. The ceremony was held on the 29th of January 2000, at the time, Bale was 26 years old and Blazic was 30. The pair have a daughter, Emmeline Bale, who was born in 2005, and a son, Joseph Bale, in August of 2015.
For all his accomplishments, Bale has always credited his wife for putting in the hard work.
“I get choked up about that stuff… [My wife] had to be married to so many different characters over our marriage. I know that it truly would be impossible to do it without her. She’s such a good, strong woman.”
