Christian Bale Fights Back Tears Over Heath Ledger At The MTV Movie Awards
Before the presentation of new footage from The Dark Knight Rises at last night's MTV Movie Awards, snippets from Batman Begins and The Dark Knight were shown, leaving star Christian Bale close to tears. Read on for details.
Unfortunately, the videos below don't seem to cover the entirety of Christian Bale's speech (hopefully MTV will release it at some point this week) but the second one in particular shows just how emotional the actor became after seeing scenes of Heath Ledger's Joker played during the awards ceremony last night. "Wow, great to remember Heath at that moment. Wonderful to see Heath Ledger there," he said. The Dark Knight Rises footage shown following the introduction by Bale and co-stars Gary Oldman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt has also yet to be released officially online. Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place.
