From KVDR in Denver, Colorado:
“Dark Knight Rises” star Christian Bale visited victims of the Aurora theater shootings at the Medical Center of Aurora South on Tuesday.
Shooting victim Carey Rottman posted to his Facebook page a picture of Bale visiting him in his hospital room.
“Wow!!! Thank you so much for the visit Christian!! What a great guy! Still in shock!,” Rottman wrote.
A source at the hospital said Bale arrived via ambulance around 2 p.m.
OK, so I pretty much take back every single lurid thing I’ve ever said about Christian Bale (there’s probably been, oh, a couple-two-three things on the list), because this is one stand-up thing to do. Sources at Warner Brothers also state that they are not behind Christian’s visit, and that Christian is, and I quote, “is there as himself,” and not on behalf of WB. It seems the more news I hear concerning Bale, the more real of a dude he appears to be.
Way to go, Christian. It’s really, genuinely nice to see you doing your best, trying to make people happy in the aftermath of such a horrific event.
