The Dark Knight Rises star Christian Bale took time out from his ever-busy schedule to phone an 8-year-old Batman fan named Zach Guillot, who is courageously battling leukemia, and make his day by chatting with him about his favorite superhero.

Check out the video the family filmed

It's so awesome... he spent a nice amount of time, drawing the little boy into a conversation and talked about so many things! It's so nice to see a celebrity take a few moments to brighten the day of a child.

He is definitely a caring person that isn't shy about helping in any way he can. I believe he flew another child with leukemia to Disneyland... It's great that he's taken that super-hero persona that kids relate to and exhibits it with real actions in real life.

That is sweet! He has a reputation of doing things for ill children; just one more little thing that makes him so appealing!
