Off Screen Superhero: Christian Bale Calls 8-Year Old Cancer Patient To Chat Batman

January 24, 2013


In heartwarming/tearjerking news, Christian Bale recently called 8-year old Batman fan and cancer patient Zach in the hospital to talk about his favorite superhero. There's a 9-minute video of that conversation (although you can't really hear too much of Bale) after the jump, but you might want to wait till you get home to watch it. You know, the whole crying at work thing. You don't want your boss to think you're some sort of emotional wreck who cries at their desk for no reason. Because you certainly weren't watching Youtube videos on company time, right? You would neeeeeever do that. *wink* Please please please get better, Zach.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to The Superficial Writer, who, despite his chiseled granite exterior, actually has a heart of pure, soft gold. But don't tell him I told you that.

    This is wonderful!!! We're actually running a campaign to bring superheroes to childrens hospitals!!!

  • Zach is a fricking Rock Star. Get well little Bud

    He's willing to put in more effort to keep a conversation going than I am with my own kids. Great job.

  • Steven Jorgson

    He also visited the memorial for the theater shooting, and went to China to meet that famous blind dissident. He just seems like a genuinely good man. Like, we does this stuff? What celebrities have 10-minute conversations with sick 8-year-olds half a world away?
