  • Hmm

    Respect Mr. Bale. Huge respect. RIP all the victims.

  • Asha

    He did an amazing thing by going to visit the victims in Aurora. He didn’t have to and yet he went out of the kindness of his heart.

  • Jennay

    He is such a respectful man. That was very sweet of him.

  • Effy

    Him and his wife just keep earning my respect. What a great guy.

  • F.

    I seriously cried seeing this pictures. RIP all the victims :(

  • Sammi

    Have to admit, I wasn’t the biggest fan of him. After this I’ve changed my mind. Truly a great guy who cares and shows respect. Gotta love him for that. I’m truly impressed.

  • BEAN

    It’s seriously inappropriate that Im thinking of doing bad things to him right now.

  • dd

    That is SO kind of him to do that!!!!

  • Carol

    His wife seems so moved by it. He’s a wonderful man and I’m glad he and his wife are taking the time to give back to the people who died in this horrible and tragic situation.

  • menna

    Definite kudos to him and his wife. What a tragedy…

  • Fassdong

    He was obvi pressured by people and celebs to come and do this. He just didn’t wear the Batman suit.

  • solecito

    I usually think celebrities are a bunch of self-centered imbeciles, but this man is a class act and has earned all my respect. Enough said.

  • Lily

    @bahha black sheep: I don’t think that’s true. The Denver Post interviewed an administrator at the hospital he visited. The administrator said Christian specifically asked that the media NOT be notified of his visit. I think he just wanted to show his support for the victims. And I bet they appreciated his visit.

  • Anne

    Kudos to talented and hot Bale. I truly believe this tragedy had a huge impact on him and that he did this with conviction.

  • believe

    I feel sorry for the cast and crew. They made a movie that they could be proud of and it should be an exciting time for them. Then this sick maniac comes along and hurts all these innocents people just out for a night of fun. I wish words could express my sorrow and heartache for the lives lost and for those injured, as well as their bereaved families.

  • notyourfriend

    Ok, this is it for me CB is freakin’ awesome, we are friends again (in my head)…He outdid himself today.

  • Drea

    Christian is so sweet. The pictures made me choke up a little. :*(

  • FanofChristianBale

    So nice of Christian to show the victims and the people of Aurora, CO that he truly cares.

    And what a great gesture on his part to stop by the memorial site and lay a bouquet of flowers..

    His action spoke loudly than the words of all celebrities combined.

  • Scott123

    Good on ya, mate!

  • Dee

    Great guy! Not only is he the best batman ever! But he’s an amazing guy. I haven’t always been a fan of his but now he’s got a fan for life.

  • kim korres

    I know making hit movie coming soon launching..

  • ju

    OMG I love his haircut!!!!!

  • He didn’t need to work on his “PR”. The incident didn’t hurt the movie or the cast, no one is to blame but the piece of *bleep* who committed the act. Christian and his wife are in my opinion just paying their respects, due to the connection.

  • Malida

    R.I.P. to all who lost their lives. Such a bizarre and senseless tragedy. Nice to see Christian and Sibi there, very thoughtful of them.

  • Reese

    Some people are saying that he is doing all this for PR. He’s a human being first then a celebrity. If he is doing something nice then accept it rather than criticize him.

  • Arie

    I really LOVE him! He has a kind heart. What a great man.

  • Arie

    @Sammi: I loved him in The Fighter but I never cared for him as a person. His actions during this tragedy have definitely changed my opinion of him. He’s an incredibly caring person. Good on him!

  • ana

    Even if I feel really sad about this tragedy … HE LOOKS HOT :o

  • sweetness

    I was not his biggest fan after his very public outburst years ago, but this was very touching and commendable of him. Now if only all actors would step out of their sheltered worlds and show some humanity …

  • DemiTasse

    What a classy thing to do. Good man.

  • Amber

    Such a great actor and a better person. Awesome. Love him.

  • Manny

    What a class act he is. I can only think of a handful of celebs who would do the same thing on their own dime and their own time. Thank you Christian for reminding us that the movies are just entertainment and real life is precious and should be treated reverently. I will be a fan for life…

  • KC

    It is obvious that both he and his wife are deeply saddened by this tragedy. I have so much respect for him as an actor and as a human being that cares about others.

  • Jamie

    Always been a fan of his as an actor and a person, even through his public outburst years ago. But this just made me love him even more, class act. As for the PR thing, please. He brought his wife with him, gave no advanced warning he was visiting, dressed down to the extent that people didn’t even recognize him at first and left him alone and Warner Bros. themselves made it known that he was not representing them but there of his own accord. This was genuine and truly came from Christian’s heart, stand up guy. Nice to know there’s still some humanity out there.

  • maria p

    What a GREAT man!!!!

  • julie

    Anyone who says that Christian Bale, the man who hates publicity and giving interviews, did this for promotion, is deranged. He is the one celebrity who stays true to keeping his life private and speaks highly of his family, has never had an indiscretion and is just simply an outstanding human being. If someone shot people at random in a Target store you’re working at as a cashier and said the cashiers were to blame, wouldn’t YOU go pay respect?! If you didn’t and would think that would be a publicity stunt, then that’s YOU. Don’t apply your thoughts, opinions and choices to other people.

  • Athena

    This is what you call respect ladies and gents

  • Jessica

    @BEAN: Me too

  • Observer

    Sadly, I think it was a publicity stunt to clean up his image. He didn’t even go to Heath Ledger’s funeral. Christian Bale may be good looking but I don’t think he is as compassionate as he portrays himself to be. He had a difficult past which has affected him and tarnished his behavior. That being said, he seems very determined to propel his acting career forward — bedding the role for American Psycho, dramatic weight loss, etc.

  • Observer

    Have you seen Christian’s wife? Sibi? She is OK looking. Sibi has pretty eyes but she has a “gummy” smile and her mouth looks like a horse’s mouth. :(
