London: Actor Christian Bale couldn’t hold back his tears when he saw late actor Heath Ledger on screen while introducing the trailer of his new movie The Dark Knight Rises during the MTV Movie Awards.
After watching a montage of Ledger, who played Joker in the film, Bale couldn’t control his emotions and kept his head down as the audience applauded.
“Wow, great to remember Heath at that moment. Wonderful to see Heath Ledger there,” said Bale.
