There was a huge campaign on Tumblr, and I think Facebook too, asking Christian Bale to visit the victims in the Aurora shooting dressed as fucking Batman! Out of all the things the victims need, seeing Batman in their hospital doorway, even if he is carrying a bouquet of carnations, is probably not one of them. Just a guess. So thankfully, when Christian Bale did an awesome thing today by visiting the victims, he left his Batman mask in the closet.
TheDenverChannel says Christian didn’t want to turn this into a huge STUNT QUEEN situation, so he rode to the hospital in an ambulance to keep the media from finding out. Christian showed up to the hospital at around 2 this afternoon and spent around two and a half hours hanging out with several victims including Carey Rottman, who posted this picture with Christian on Facebook. Warner Bros. said that Christian went on his own and he wasn’t there representing the studio.
Well, this was a completely amazing thing of Christian Bale to do and makes me feel all warm in the chest area, and I usually only get that feeling when my laptop overheats on my chest while I’m watching porn. I know some of us are fans of Christian’s bitchy on-set meltdowns, so don’t worry, I’m sure he’ll be back to screaming his tonsil skin off at an assistant director by this time… Wait, what time is it? Oh yeah, he’s probably back on the set and screaming “OH GOOOOOOOD FOR YOU“ at an assistant director right now. A crazy with a heart, that Christian.
