I love that Bale had to explain to the kid why his voice is different from the movies. That's cute.

Read and saw the pics of Bale & that family earlier today, but not the additional details kvz posted. Really nice thing of Bale to do. So touching. Very sweet thing he did.

Not even Nolan could write something that genuine and heartfelt.

Re-reading that story just feels bittersweet, glad Bale did what he did. I think Jayden meant why Bale didn't have his gurgly Bat-voice, lol.

By ability or style, Bale is closest thing to De Niro. I hope he won't be a part of lame movies like De Niro in future.With that said, Tom Hardy favorite guy for "tough guys" "mafia" "villians" etc. parts so i wouldn't be surprise if people consider him as modern De Niro.

I would love to see Bale playing a villain by the way.
Well DiCaprio's a great actor on his own, and you can't deny that he's got some really bad-ass films under his belt, but Bale seems to come from an altogether different breed of actors. I'd compare him to Johnny Depp, Public Enemies had an incredible cast! I can understand the De Niro comparison because of that, heh.

I dig Christian's hairstyle. My hair is probably the same length with the pictures below, but still can't achieve the same look.

Total Film and I are on the same wavelength. He's probably my favorite living actor.

This brought me to tears. I can't express in words how great both this little boy and Bale are.

It's amazing how fiction can sometimes feel more real than anything tangible in real life.

Sometimes I feel so useless. This is breaking my heart.

I don't understand why this would happen to such a young child. God bless both this child and Christian Bale. God knows I don't have the strength to keep composure hearing something like this.

It's so sad and beautiful at the same time.

Bale as an actor is so overrated it's not even funny. TO compare him to Day-Lewis is just not true. I knmow Bale takes his roles very serious and puts effort into it but that does not make you a good actor. A good actor gives a good performance period. I don't care how much work you put into it if it's not a good performance. also just because the movie is good does not mean he gave a good performance. he knows how to pick an intricate script i'll give him that. But in all his movie he overacts to the point where it's a bad performance. the only role I've ever seen him give a great performance was in the fighter. Everything else has been good to average to bad

Christian Bale heads to Disneyland with Chinese activist

The Welsh actor forged an unlikely friendship with Guangcheng last year (12) after the political protester fled his native China and settled in New York with his wife and two children, having spent two years under house arrest.

Bale was on hand to honour Guangcheng at the Human Rights First Awards in the Big Apple last October (12), and the pair has stayed in contact - even enjoying a trip to 'The Happiest Place on Earth' with their families this weekend.

In photos obtained by WENN, Bale's seven-year-old daughter Emmeline chatted away to Guangcheng's little girl Chen Kesi, while the movie star helped to guide the activist as they walked through the themepark.

Bale attempted to speak to Guangcheng in 2011, while he was under house arrest for organising a landmark class-action lawsuit against Chinese authorities. The actor travelled to Dongshigu, China with a CNN camera crew, but was turned away by government guards.
