Christian Bale is quite a superhero in real life.
Less than two months after flying to Colorado to meet with victims of the Aurora theater massacre, “The Dark Knight Rises” star treated a 4-year-old cancer patient and his family to a Disneyland trip.
The actor flew Jayden Barber, who suffers from a severe form of leukemia, and his family to Los Angeles, paid for their hotel room and treated them to lunch at the theme park with his own family.
The boy’s mother, Charlene Barber, recounted the special day on a Facebook page dedicated to Jayden’s recovery:
“The entire interaction was like old friends having lunch. Jayden did not get star struck but was well aware of who we were with! They talked movies and Superheros and he was genuinely happy to hear about everything Jayden wanted to tell him.
“Christian, his wife and daughter are three of the most beautiful people we have ever met! Christian made these arrangements for us personally and ensured we were treated like royalty.
“I don’t have even one negative thing to say about them,” Charlene concluded. “I can tell you that they were just as impressed with Jayden as Jayden was with them.”
A knight indeed.
