I always thought Christian Bale was an outstanding actor, but after watching this CNN video, I think Christian is a class act. He’s a wonderful, compassionate man.
Yesterday, Christian Bale and his wife, Sibi Blazic, arrived in Aurora, Colorado with little advance warning. They visited the makeshift memorial site across the street from the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora. The couple also spent time at the Medical Center of Aurora; visiting with the survivors of the shooting spree and thanking the medical staff.
Days after the Aurora movie theater shooting, Christian Bale released 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.”
Christian Bale’s recent visit to Aurora, Colorado prompted this statement from Warner Brothers, the movie studio for “The Dark Knight Rises”: “Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers.” The studio also stated that Bale made the decision to see the shooting victims on his own – at his own expense.
