Christian Bale received his share of negative publicity after audio surfaced of him ranting on the set of the 2009 action movie "Terminator Salvation." But the "Dark Knight" actor has done a lot to change that image since, including his recent gesture to an 8-year-old Batman fan suffering from cancer.
As we can see in this video posted on YouTube by the parents of leukemia sufferer Zach Guillot, Bale clearly gives the boy a thrill by calling him in his hospital room and chatting with him about his role in the Batman franchise.
"The thing that's great about Batman, and the whole point of the movie, is that anybody can be Batman," Bale can be heard telling Zach. "You know, anyone can be as strong as that, and help people, and do good in the world."
Watch the video to see more of this uplifting phone conversation between the star and his young lifelong fan.
You can read more about Zach's battle with leukemia at his personal Facebook page.
