Christian Bale: Human Rights Award Dinner!

Christian Bale suits up as he attends Human Rights First‘s Human Rights Award Dinner held at Pier Sixty in Chelsea Piers on Wednesday (October 24) in New York City.

The 38-year-old actor shared a sweet moment with Chinese activist Chen Guangcheng as he honored him with the 2012 Human Rights Award.

“This doesn’t come naturally to me, this is not what I actually enjoy, it isn’t about me,” Christian said during his speech. “But this was just a situation that said I can’t look the other way. The local people who are standing up to the authorities, who are visiting Chen and his family and getting beaten or detained, I want to support them.”

    Christian Bale is a genuine humanitarian. He does things because he wants to make a difference – not because he is looking for attention. I have a lot of respect for him.

    With every single thing this man does, he just gets hotter. Seriously. Smart, kind, good-hearted, talented, not looking for spotlight, devoted father and husband and a great supporter of The Good. Wow. THAT’s what a real man is.

    the thing about Christian is that he’s just really passionate whether it’s acting or causes he believes in, he’s going to say or do what he wants and he doesnt give a crap what other people think.
    He’s basically the quintessential man’s man.

    Er, no. Where did you hear that crap? Read the National Enquirer much?

    Rena Says:

    @charlotte: @mel: I have NEVER heard of him beating his wife and child. Geez, where do you people come up with this stuff?

    imm41 Says:

    @charlotte @mel He has never beat anyone, let alone his wife and child..who he adores and brings everywhere with him. There was an incident where he was accused of VERBAL assault of his mom and sister, in the UK it can be considered a crime. However, the charges were dropped.

    It’s amazing how one or two incidents allow people to pass ridiculous judgement on people. I think it’s obvious that he is a human being, that has flaws, but also has a great deal of compassion. He’s not a fake publicity ***** and I respect that.

    R Says:

    @mel: no there was un incident with his mother and his sister, verbal, no physical assault, family conflicts
    where you got this crap?
