BATMAN BEGINS star Christian Bale is not convinced his role in the superhero movie means he's made it into Hollywood's elite.

The Welsh actor shies away from fame and is refusing to get carried away by the film's early success.

He says, "Let's not jump the gun. I could just be 'the guy who plays Batman', so let's wait and see.

"I don't mean to sound like a real f**king downer - I'm obviously very excited by Batman."
