No More Hangovers for Bradley Cooper
What better way to say goodbye to the Hangover franchise than taking a road trip to Las Vegas where all the shenanigans began? Remember how that first side-splittingly funny 2009 movie took us all by surprise? Then the 2nd one maybe not so much, and the 3rd - not as funny as the first one but way way better than the second. But still who cares? What we care about is those guys: Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms and Bradley Cooper. OK yeah, and Justin Bartha and the incomparable Ken Jeong.
For Cooper, who became a household name because of The Hangover’s success, saying goodbye to the trilogy is bittersweet. So what does he think about when he looks back on that journey, what will he miss the most? “Not to sound sappy,” he says, “but you know, honestly more than anything, I'd remember what it's like to be on set the four of us trying to figure out a scene on a given day. I feel like it was a quartet and I was a member of that and each one of us plays an instrument and there was something wonderful about the jazz we would make together. I'll miss that a lot because there's just nothing like it when you – when you can find that – that sort of synergy.”
While the comedy blockbuster gave him his career breakthrough, Cooper's career has taken a serious turn. He reunites with his SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK director David O. Russell and co-star Jennifer Lawrence for his next drama, American Hustle, based on a true story about a con artist and his partner in crime and also starring Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, Amy Adams, Robert DeNiro, Michael Pena and Louis C.K.
“AMERICAN HUSTLE takes place in 1978," says Cooper. "So the fashion revolves around the late-70s in the East Coast of the United States. I made the stupid choice that my character curls his hair – which has become an interesting 3 hour before work every day enterprise of curling, curling my hair. (laughing) But, you know, men did that back then. A lot of baseball players did that. I love it. And we all love it. I mean, we're all sort of in heaven on that set with the outfits and the music of it, with this cast. It's just a very exciting set to be on.”
Does he think he’s be a good hustler in real life?
“No. No, I have a bad poker face. (laughing) Yeah, the worst.”
