New Delhi: Christian Bale has denied calling Jennifer Lawrence a " bitch".

The `Dark Knight Rises` star clarified in a recent interview that he is misunderstood easily and said that his 23 year old `American Hustle` co-star is in fact a tough cookie and if he had to say anything snarky about her, he would say it to her face, PVR Pictures reported.

The 39-year-old English actor added that that the Oscar-winning actress loves a good fight and talks "like a sailor", and he enjoys those conversations with her.

` American Hustle ` releases in Indian theaters on January 17, 2014.
