No More Hangovers for Bradley Cooper

What better way to say goodbye to the Hangover franchise
than taking a road trip to Las Vegas to meet with those 3 guys at Caesar’s Palace, 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
