Christian Bale's daughter loves it when he does the Batman voice for her and friends.

'The Dark Knight Rises' actor admitted that seven year-old Emmaline gets a thrill out of his on-screen character, even though she is not old enough to see the movies.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''It's a kick for her and her friends when I do the Batman voice for them and chase them around pretending to be Batman.

''Although she loves me doing the Batman voice she still takes the p*** out of my British accent. I think past a certain age you can't get rid of it no matter what you do.''

He continued: ''My daughter loves it because she thinks it sounds so silly. She's not really old enough to watch any of the movies so she hasn't seen them yet. But she's seen some pictures, she'd come and visit the set.''

The star added that his child with wife Sibi, has introduced him to activities he wouldn't necessarily choose to take part in.

He said: ''My daughter is crazy about art so we draw, paint and sculpt together. She's just nuts about it. And she has me dancing and singing to songs I never imagined I would be dancing and singing to.

''One of her favorites is LMFAO so I'm even doing that.''
