Christian Bale (who played Bruce Wayne in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy) has been visiting victims of Thursday night’s shooting as they recover in the Medical Center of Aurora in Colorado. Now there has been outcries around the web for Bale and the rest of the cast to do this but we like the fact that the actor had made very little of the visit when it could tastelessly have been used as a publicity stunt (the above photo was supplied by one of the victims, Carey Rottman, who Bale visited). What a top bloke.
Warner Bros. have confirmed that “Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers.”
The tragedy occurred during the premier of The Dark Knight Rises and left 12 dead and over 60 wounded. Christian Bale had already issued this statement:
“Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.”
Rottman, seen in the above photo, was apparently in very good spirits after the visit, writing:
“I am definitely feeling nothing but love and am ready to get started on this recovery! By the way, first 30 minutes of the dark knight were SICK!!”
Once again, we’d like to say our hearts go out to all the victims of this senseless crime.
