Christian Bale Visits Victims of Colorado Shooting In Hospital

'The Dark Knight Rises' star Christian Bale visited survivors of the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting on Tuesday.

Assistant vice president of surgical services at sister hospital, Swedish Medical Center, Janie Bowman-Hayes said she and co-workers were invited to a luncheon at The Medical Center of Aurora to thank staff who tended to victims.

"When we got there, then we found out he was there," she said. "He just said he wanted to come to thank all of us because he has been thinking about this. He knows the whole world has been thinking about this. He took it upon himself to come and thank us."

Bale spent the day thanking medical staff, police officers and visiting a memorial to victims near the theater.

He visited with victims still recovering in the hospital and even posed for a few pictures at their request.

"He did this out of his heart, and you could really tell," Bowman-Hayes said. "It was so sincere. It was just, 'Thank you."'

Shortly after the shooting, Bale said "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."
