REAL LIFE HEROES: Christian Bale Visits Aurora Survivors And Memorial

Reign of Fire, Terminator Salvation, and yes, The Dark Knight trilogy, Christian Bale sure has played a few heroes in his time. Today, his biggest and most respected role revealed itself, not as a work of any studio or agent, but as an honest man, seeking to help bring comfort to the victims of the Aurora, Colo movie massacre and placing flowers on the community's memorial for their loss.

Accompanied by his wife, Sibi Blazic, Bale spent 2 1/2 hours at Aurora's Medical Center, and specifically requested to staff that media not be notified. Unknown if Bale had seen this Facebook petition which had poppped up online last week asking for him to show and spread light in face of the darkness, it is still a remarkable and humbling move for anyone to make. One that hopefully generates even more goodwill to help this community survive and overcome the cowardly and evil act that fell upon it.

One hospitalised victim that definitely felt a positive impact was Carey Rottman, who excitedly Facebooked the below picture of him and the Hollywood heavy-hitter sharing the moment.

  1. with this holmes guy telling the cops he's the Joker along with Bale being in Aurora Colorado right now it's got me thinking of everything from Bale's meltdown on the set of Terminator 4 to the scene in Batman the Darknight in which he has that face to face with Heathledger in the police interrogation room.

  2. Who wouldn't love to see that re-enaction play out huh? Seriously, very cool of Mr. Bale to do that, especially when it was of his own accord, and not a mandate from studio execs or other media.

    If this doesn't show what a class act he is then I don't know what does. I guess this will help keep him some cool points until the next meltdown right?:) I kid, I kid.

  3. Lord I hope this guy doesn't cop the insanity defence. Look at what he's studies and the planning... still focus has to be on the survivors and the families of the fallen in becoming so.

    Dale, you crack me up. Thanks for the comments guys!
