Actor Christian Bale's estranged mother is desperate to reconcile with her son before his 40th birthday.
Bale separated from his mother Jenny in 2008 after he was arrested in London over allegations he attacked her and his sister Sharon at a hotel before the British premiere of "The Dark Knight".
Jenny has tried to reach to the Oscar-winning actor and has now released an impassioned plea ahead of her only son's milestone birthday on Jan 30.
She told Britain's Sunday Mirror: "Six years is long enough. I want him back. It's so sad we have not spoken in all this time. It's sad for me. It's sad for him too. His grandma Edna is 90 now and she wants contact with him - and it's his 40th coming up."
"Now would be a wonderful time to get back together so we could all be a family again. I want to reach out to him. I hope he reads this and gets in touch. I hope we can get back to how we used to be. I wish Christian only the best.
"I still send him e-mails but don't get any response and send cards for Christmas and birthdays via his other sister Louise in Los Angeles. I keep doing it as if nothing has happened just to keep him up to date with the family," she added.
