The actor made a full apology for his behaviour.
Speaking to Access Hollywood Bale said: "You think about the numbers of days we shot on that movie - 77 days - everything going well. What's being focused on is four minutes where I behaved bad.
"I didn't want that to overshadow the hard work of everybody on the crew, in every aspect. So I felt like I had to say something."
However the admitted that he has no idea how his rant has impacted on his image: "I don't even think about that. I don't really have an awareness of what anybody's perception of me is, I don't like to.
"I like being oblivious to that because it allows me just to get on with whatever project I'm doing."
In Terminator Salvation Bale takes on the role of John Connor and is leading the human resistance against Skynet.
