Is that really you, Bradley? The super hot actor has packed on major muscle to play a Navy SEAL in an upcoming movie role, and he barely looks like himself!
Bradley Cooper, 39, is famous for being one of the smartest, sweetest and best-dressed actors in Hollywood, but it’s his new look that has everyone talking! Bradley was spotted leaving the swanky Tom Ford boutique in Beverly Hills yesterday, May 2, looking like a completely different man. So what’s up?
Bradley Cooper: Why He Bulked Up
Sporting a hat, sunglasses and beard, Bradley was seriously hard to recognize — but at least he has a reason.
The Oscar-nominated actor has gained close to 40 pounds to play late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in an upcoming movie called American Sniper. Clint Eastwood is directing the flick, which will hit theaters in 2015. Sienna Miller, Luke Grimes and Eric Close also star in the flick.
Before Bradley made his new look debut, Eric (who plays Teddy Conrad on Nashville) revealed all about his costar’s extreme new look! “He’s put on like 40 pounds. He’s really been working hard. He looks great. He’s really taken on this character. … He really takes this story personally and wants to do an honorable job for Chris’ memory and for his family,” Eric told E.
Wow! We love Bradley for taking his film role so seriously and transforming his look in just months. American Sniper is based off his character’s autobiography, so Bradley clearly wants to be believable for the true story. And who knows, maybe he’ll even get another Oscar nomination for all of this hard work!
So what do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you love Bradley’s new look, or did you like him better before he bulked up? Let us know!
