Christian Bale popped up unannounced to visit five victims of The Dark Knight Rises shooting at the Medical Center of Aurora on Tuesday, all sweet and low-key in jeans and a t-shirt.
He spent two and a half hours at the facility, and snapped photos with several of the victims and some of the employees as well. One, Carey Rottman (left) posted the photo on Facebook.
“The patients were really happy to meet Bale,” hospital president Bill Voloch told reporters. “They are obviously big fans of his movies. They wanted to see Batman and were really pleased to see Bale.”
Crystal Flateland, a nurse who was up for 40 hours after the movie theater massacre said,
“I am probably one of the biggest Batman fans ever, it was amazing, actually, to get to meet him. I think it’s really great he came out here. It was touching.”
