Christian Bale Visited Shooting Victims in Colorado
CHRISTIAN BALE went to a hospital in Aurora, Colorado to visit victims of the deadly shooting spree at a midnight showing of "The Dark Knight Rises" last week.Warner Brothers didn't put him up to it, either. They issued a statement saying, quote, "Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing us." One of the victims, Carey Rottman, posted a picture of himself and Bale on Facebook. He was shot in the leg. Bale spent over two hours visiting seven patients who were still being treated for their wounds. A hospital administrator says, quote, "The patients were really happy to meet Bale. -"They are obviously big fans of his movies. They wanted to see Batman and were really pleased to see Bale." Christian also visited a memorial for the victims and joined a prayer circle. They didn't announce or call attention to themselves, and Bale refused to give an interview to a TV news crew that happened to be there.
Here is the raw footage from the Associated Press.
