File under: AWESOME.

Christian Bale, star of “The Dark Knight Rises,” is in Aurora today visiting victims of Friday’s horrific shooting.

From ABC:

Christian Bale arrived in Aurora, Colo. today 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 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.”

Bale himself made the decision to travel to Aurora:

“Mr. Bale is there as himself, not representing Warner Brothers,” said an assistant for Susan Fleishman, executive vice president for Warner Brothers corporate communications.

Twitterers praised Bale for his kindness:

It makes my heart extremely happy to see Christian Bale in #Aurora visiting the victims. Kind, caring heart.

Christian Bale is a pretty cool guy. Visited the victims in Colorado. Probably made some peoples days. Classy dude in my book.

So intensely proud of Christian Bale coming out here to visit the shooting victims. Speaks very strongly to his character #RealLifeHero

Great respect for Christian Bale, visiting injured kids in a hospital in Colorado #truehero

I have the utmost respect for Christian Bale in donating his time to visit the victims of the CO theater shooting.. #Respect

— Dougie Doug (@DougieTheBuzz) July 24, 2012

This isn’t the first time Bale has gone above and beyond and reached out to people in need. He also attempted to visit dissident and forced-abortion opponent Chen Guangcheng when he was still in China. Bale was beaten up and kept from seeing Chen, but he offered his solidarity and vowed to raise awareness.

Maybe this is why Christian Bale is my favorite Batman, he is the Dark Knight on and off the screen

Kudos to Mr. Bale. He really is Batman.
