Christian Bale with one of the victims, Carey Rottman, of the theater shooting.
Rottman posted two pictures and wrote on his Facebook: “Wow!!! Thank you so much for the visit Christian!! What a great guy! Still in shock!”
Bale apparently spend over two hours visiting all the victims at the hospital. Guess Batman does exist.
My heart aches and breaks for the lives taken and altered by this unfathomably senseless act. I am at a loss for words how to express my sorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.
Anne Hathaway in an officially released statement
“Speaking on behalf of the cast and crew of The Dark Knight Rises, I would like to express our profound sorrow at the senseless tragedy that has befallen the entire Aurora community.
I would not presume to know anything about the victims of the shooting but that they were there last night to watch a movie. I believe movies are one of the great American art forms and the shared experience of watching a story unfold on screen is an important and joyful pastime.
The movie theatre is my home, and the idea that someone would violate that innocent and hopeful place in such an unbearably savage way is devastating to me.
Nothing any of us can say could ever adequately express our feelings for the innocent victims of this appalling crime, but our thoughts are with them and their families”
