(AURORA, Colo.) -- Christian Bale arrived in Aurora, Colo., Tuesday to visit victims injured during Friday’s shooting at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises. The Batman actor was seen at the Medical Center of Aurora, and hospital personnel were overheard saying he was talking to patients.
Petitions asking the actor to visit Aurora were posted on Change.org following Friday’s shooting. Over the weekend, Bale released a statement regarding the massacre, saying, “Words cannot express the horror that I feel. I cannot begin to truly understand the pain and grief of the victims and their loved ones, but my heart goes out to them.”
Christopher Nolan, who directed Bale in the latest Batman trilogy, released a statement Friday expressing his “profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy” that happened in Aurora. Anne Hathaway, who stars alongside Bale in The Dark Knight Rises, echoed their sentiments, saying, “My heart aches and breaks for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomably senseless act.”
