Christian Bale visits Aurora shooting victims in hospital

Christian Bale is meeting with victims of Friday’s mass shooting at an Aurora hospital Tuesday afternoon.

The pic above shows Christian Bale meeting with shooting victim Carey Rottman at Medical Center of Aurora in Colorado.

Bale plays Batman in the new movie ‘The Dark Knight Rises,’ the film that was playing when a gunman killed 12 people and wounded almost 60 at an Aurora movie theater Friday.

When he got word of the shooting, Bale said his heart went out to the victims.

In a statement released Saturday, Bale says, “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.”

Despite the injury, Rottman seems to be in good humor writing, “I am definitely feeling nothing but love and am ready to get started on this recovery! By the way, first 30 minutes of the dark knight were SICK!!”

Rottman has also posted photos of himself with Gov. John Hickenlooper and several members of the Denver Broncos.

Sunday, Rottman wrote, “Just got off the phone with my boy Payton Manning. What a great great guy. Thank you for the warm wishes Payton, I’ll be rooting for you baller!!!”
