ok. so this here. this touched my heart deep (dont know if it sounds good. dont care). this is a wondeful human being. i just wanted to say that. the link to the article: http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-talk/christian-bale-visits-colorado-shooting-victims-220129641.html
and to point out this: Bale is said to have gone of his own volition, according to a Warner Bros. employee: "Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Bros.,". i can understand that he maybe just went there not telling anybody but somehow this seems, to me at least, as if WB doesnt really care. ive read somewhere that they will be sending some funds. but idk.

That's neat for a celebrity to use their own time to do something nice like that.

That is really, really nice of him, he could have just gone about his normal life, but to take time out of his life to visit those in need, shows he is a pretty darn good person, my respect for him just skyrocketed.

He's a really good man for doing this.

I'm glad he visited them as himself and not batman. It would had been awkward if a little kid came up to and said,"Why didn't you save us batman."

He's both an outstanding actor and man.

True that. Wasn't he arrested in China some months back for attempting to visit his hero, that blind activist Chen?

Christian Bale is a supreme gentleman. He adores his craft, he doesn't squander the gifts of his life and he is always outgoing with people. People think he's a jerk just because of the on-set rant, but he really is a splendid person.

A noble deed indeed.

The lighting guy/whoever got in the way was an idiot.

Loved him already, but this is true.

Yup. He's passionate and doesn't suffer fools. Because of that, morons think he's a jerk.

Christain Bale is much more classy then that meth head douche Robert Downey Jr.

This is a really nice act by Bale. I'm sure the kids loved seeing him visit them. And it's definitely better he went as himself rather than Batman. Would have been very awkward suffice to say.

Wonderful thing of Bale to do. But I also can understand why celebrities wouldn't visit in the same situation. It seems very easy to mistake this as a photo opportunity rather than an act of kindness, especially when celebrity is involved. However this was an appropriate and nice thing to do.

I think he felt a lot of social media pressure to visit them (I know Facebook and Tumblr were doint a 'share if you want Christian Bale to visit CO shooting victims) but either way, for him to actually go and do it, is awesome of him. He could have easily said 'Oh I'm too busy right now' and just laid around in his millions of dollars estate.

I'm proud of him <3

But he's still a mean jerk LOL

Bale's a class act
