Actor Christian Bale has gone to Aurora to comfort the wounded from last week’s mass shootings.
What do you think? Bale is in a tough spot — he wants to help in some way, he feels obliged to be there, but he knows he’s just an entertainer. It’s not like he’s a social worker or a doctor or a cop.
I am giving him the benefit of the doubt.
Warner Bros. says he is not representing the studio, that he went of his own free will. I say good for him.
I realize this is in no way a solution, but I’m glad to see him doing his part. I really do think his motives are genuine in this case. He ain’t doing this for the publicity.
I am usually suspicious of stars attaching themselves to causes, but in this instance I give him a lot of credit.
