Christian Bale is no stranger to doing good deeds for children fighting illnesses. He’s often made an extra effort to brighten a child’s life. He recently sat down with Access Hollywood, who asked him about San Francisco’s five-year old Batkid, Miles Scott. He also had some Bat-Advice for Ben Afleck.
When asked about the Make-A-Wish Foundation event in San Francisco Bale has this to say:
I just think it’s great. It’s a great day for the little guy. I just think Make-A-Wish and San Francisco did such an amazing thing to organize that. You just think of the delight in that little fella’s heart, running around doing that. Then also as someone who has played Batman, it’s great to see that the symbol of Batman is so much bigger than any one person, than any film, than any comic book, any TV series, that’s really what it’s all about. It’s irrelevant which actor is playing it, we’re irrelevant in that sense. But for little Miles to have such a great day is just delightful.
Among the many celebrities that praised the event and offered their support in social media, Ben Affleck tweeted:
I wish him all the best. He’s a very experienced actor and filmmaker and he’ll make it his own. Our thing’s finished, we’ve always declared it was finished and it should be passed on to another actor and it will be again after him.
What was Bale’s biggest piece of advice?
The only thing I said to him is just make sure he can take a piss without anyone having to help him. Because it’s a little bit humiliating, at least what I went through, when you have to have someone help you out of the costume. That was my main piece of advice for him.
I can see where having to ask someone to shake it a few times might be uncomfortable. Check out the video below for the rest of the interview.
