Actor Christian Bale proved himself a real life hero this week by taking a young leukemia patient out to California for a trip to Disneyland.
Friends and family of four-year-old Jayden Barber set up a Facebook page in a bid to grant the youngster's wish of meeting the "real Batman," and when "The Dark Knight" star found out about the campaign, he arranged a special outing.

Barber and his relatives were flown to Los Angeles for a trip to Disneyland on Wednesday and they were treated to lunch with Bale and his family.
The youngster's mother, Charlene Gillingham Barber, posted photographs of the meeting on the Facebook page and wrote, "The entire interaction was like old friends having lunch. Jayden did not get star struck but was well aware of who we were with! They talked movies and superheroes and he [Bale] was genuinely happy to hear about everything Jayden wanted to tell him.
"Christian, his wife and daughter are three of the most beautiful people we have ever met! Christian made these arrangements for us personally and ensured we were treated like royalty. I don't have even one negative thing to say about them. I can tell you that they were just as impressed w [with] Jayden as Jayden was w [with] them."
Bale previously showed his softer side by meeting victims of the Colorado shooting in July. The British actor met with those who had survived the massacre, which took place at a cinema in Aurora during a midnight screening of his latest Batman movie, "The Dark Knight Rises."
