And the Celebrity Prep School Grad of the Week is….

Patrick Bateman — Phillips Exeter

…Patrick Bateman (played by Christian Bale) from the film, American Psycho! In this film, Bale plays “A wealthy New York investment banking executive hides his alternate psychopathic ego from his co-workers and friends as he escalates deeper into his illogical, gratuitous fantasies,” as summarized by IMDB. 

I saw the movie a month ago and to be honest, it’s pretty fucked up. However, I do see how years of excessive, unhealthy stress from prep school and a career as a top investment banker could result in a fictional character driven to dementedness like Patrick Bateman. So, the moral I took away from PB pretty much don’t go to Exeter… kidding. In all seriousness, when life gets too stressful, take a break from the books and talk to your friends about your problems before you end up like the guy in the movie below.
