Sunday, September 9th, 2012

Christian Bale has flown a 4-year-old cancer sufferer to meet with him and his family at Disneyland.

The Dark Knight Rises star flew Jayden Barber and his entire family to Los Angeles for a lunch at Disneyland’s Club 33 earlier this week.

The boy’s mother Charlene Barber posted photos of the actor with her son on a specially-created group called ‘Lighting the Batsignal for Jayden‘.

She wrote: “The entire interaction was like old friends having lunch. Jayden did not get starstruck but was well aware of who we were with!

“They talked movies and superheroes and he 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 Jayden as Jayden was w them :)”

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

Michael Clarke Duncan has died, aged 54.

The Green Mile actor passed away this morning (September 3) in a Los Angeles hospital, TMZ reports.

A rep for the star said that he never fully recovered from the heart attack he suffered on July 13.

Duncan’s fiancĂ©e, Apprentice star Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, was with him in the hospital room where he was being treated. She left for a short period of time and when she returned, he had passed away.

“[Omarosa] is grateful for all of your prayers and asks for privacy at this time. Celebrations of his life, both private and public, will be announced at a later date,” Duncan’s rep said.

Duncan was nominated for ‘Best Supporting Actor’ at the Academy Awards for his portrayal of John Coffey in The Green Mile. He also starred in Armageddon, The Whole Nine Yards, Planet of the Apes, Sin City and Daredevil.

He worked as a bodyguard for celebrities such as Will Smith, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J and Notorious B.I.G. before his acting career took off.
