His head bowed, lost in thought, Christian Bale stands at a makeshift memorial for victims of the Denver cinema shooting.
Next to the Batman star his wife Sibi stares uncomprehendingly at the scene where young people waiting to see The Dark Knight Rises were gunned down.
The couple are doing doing his best to make sense of the tragedy by showing solidarity with the victims.
As well as visiting the cinema they also dropped in on some of the 58 people injured.
Carey Rottman, one of those caught up in Friday”s shooting, posted two photographs of himself with the actor on his Facebook page. Hospital staff also posted a Facebook photo of the Batman star with some staff members.
There has been an online campaign urging the actor to visit the victims of the shooting, in which also 12 people also died.
A Warner Bros spokeswoman told The Denver Post that Christian was representing himself, not the film studio.
Some of the survivors have also received hospital visits from US president Barack Obama and members of the Denver Broncos football team.
