The four-minute meltdown contains 39 F-words as the British actor lays into a director of photography who has accidentally interrupted a scene.

He screams abuse and threats as colleagues, including director McG, attempt to calm the situation.

The audio clip, obtained by www.TMZ.com, has become a web hit. It begins with Bale yelling: "I'm gonna kick your --ing ass. I want you off the ---ing set, you -----."

The director of photography, believed to be Shane Hurlbut, can be heard apologising and explaining that he was checking one of the lights, but Bale continues with his rant.

At one point he can be heard threatening: "Do you want me to go ----ing trash your lights? Do you want me to ---ing trash them? Then why are you trashing my scene? You do it one more ----ing time and I ain't walking on this set if you're still hired. I'm ---ing serious."

According to TMZ, executives on the film sent a copy of the tape to their insurers as evidence in case Bale did walk out.

Bale has not commented on the clip, recorded last July. However, Bruce Franklin, associate producer on the film, defended the actor.

"If you are working in a very intense scene and someone takes you out of your groove... it was the most emotional scene in the movie," he told E! "He is very intensely involved in his character. He didn't walk around like that all day long. It was just a moment and it passed. He is so dedicated to the craft. The art of acting is not paint by numbers, it's an art form."

Bale, 35, plays John Connor in the fourth film of the Terminator franchise, which is set to be one of the summer's biggest blockbusters.

His on-set outburst occurred days before he was arrested in London for an alleged assault on his mother and sister in a London hotel room on the eve of The Dark Knight premiere. He did not face charges after the Crown Prosecution Service advised that no further action should be taken.
