Bradley did an interview with DP/30 the day after he attended the New York Film Critics Circle Awards in New york. The full interview was released and you can watch it below. It’s definitely worth the watch!
After his first Oscar nomination last year, Bradley Cooper is knocking on Oscar’s door again with his wild raging FBI agent, Richie DiMaso in David O/ Russell’s American Hustle. He talked to David Poland about the film, his involvement both as an actor and as a producer, and his career.
Bradley is one of the actors who is featured in W Magazine: The Movie issue, which is the February issue of the magazine. We will add the scans as soon as possible, but we added the first outtake in our gallery. You can read his interview with Lynn Hirschberg below/inside. We only included Bradley’s parts, but if you want to see the full article be sure to head over to the official website.
[…]Nearly two months later, on a Thursday night, I was at the Greenwich Hotel again, this time to interview Bradley Cooper, who was staying there while in New York for the premiere of American Hustle, in which he plays an ambitious FBI agent. When it comes to promoting his films, Cooper, who is also 39, may be the polar opposite of Phoenix. Cooper is a film lover who thinks like a businessman; he will enthuse about, say, how much he admires The Royal Tenenbaums and how it’s a crime that Wes Anderson, the director, never won an Oscar. What’s more, he doesn’t hesitate to fly to any city anywhere to meet and greet and to present at a premiere or a film festival. He seems to view doing press as a form of campaigning, and it works: Last year he was nominated for an Academy Award for best actor for his part in Silver Linings Playbook, a dark comedy about a love affair between two mentally unstable people. Cooper, who didn’t start acting until after he graduated from Georgetown University, has a kind of puppyish zeal for every aspect of filmmaking. Even though he is quite accomplished and is no longer required to audition, he will make a video of himself to prove to a director that he is right for a part. Cooper is so enthralled by the process of acting that it doesn’t even seem to bother him when directors turn him down. “I read for Scorsese for The Wolf of Wall Street,” Cooper told me. “But the part went to Jonah Hill.” As usual, he sounded upbeat.
Los Angeles Times did a web chat with Bradley earlier today to talk about “American Hustle“. You can (re)watch the interview below:
Deadline talked to Bradley about “American Hustle“, award season and his upcoming projects.
For many the grueling, six month awards season is a blessing and a curse. It’s great to be nominated but theBradley Cooper marathon race takes its toll on the contenders who might be crawling to the finish line after being on the circuit for such a protracted period of time. But that’s not the case for Bradley Cooper. It seems like he just got off the awards whirlwind after being nominated for everything in sight including an Oscar for last season’s Silver Linings Playbook, but he’s back with a vengeance with American Hustle for which his role as the innocent and somewhat loopy FBI agent Richie DiMaso has already been nominated for a Golden Globe and Critics Choice Movie Award, as well as a SAG Cast award along with co-stars Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence and Jeremy Renner among others. And there’s Oscar buzz again, this time in supporting rather than lead. So is he really happy to be going through all of this craziness again so soon? You bet. “If I am lucky enough to be a part of it, yes. I am excited. Last year was amazing. I loved it. Maybe it’s because I still have a sort of innocent love of movies but to be in these rooms with these actors who I admire, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my time. I really love it,” he said when he called me from France this week. Cooper is having a little R and R as he says in Paris (“my favorite place for sure”) after wrapping Cameron Crowe’s untitled new film in Hawaii right before Christmas. He’ll be back in the States this weekend for the Palm Springs International Film Festival when the Hustle cast receives the award for outstanding ensemble. And then next week it’s the Globes, CCMAs , SAG and on and on.
Bradley is on the cover of GQ’s January 2014 issue (US). We added the cover and photoshoot in our gallery. We will try to add all the scans as soon as possible. You can read the interview below/inside.
Oahu, Hawaii: Speeding down the side of a volcano in a rental-car-colored Chevy Cruze, Honolulu spreading out like a sun-glazed mirage beneath us. Bradley Cooper is eating a salad and driving at the same time. A little white dog noses out into the road in front of us, then retreats. “Can you imagine if we just ran over that dog?” Cooper says, eyes bright and blue, like they’ve been plugged into an invisible outlet. He’s wearing a white Philadelphia Eagles baseball cap, navy blue shorts, flip-flops. In the Cruze with him, you feel the amiable presence of all the on-screen characters he’s played—Phil from The Hangover, say—who might good-naturedly joke about ending a small dog’s life. Who’d probably break down in real, unfeigned tears if it actually happened. Anyway, he swerves in plenty of time. Then sets aside his salad.
Bradley made an appearance on Good Morning America earlier this week to promote “American Hustle“. We added the official episode stills in our gallery. Many thanks to our friend Claudia for donating them to us! You can (re)watch his interview over here.

Bradley and “American Hustle” director David O. Russell sat down with The Wall Street Journal to talk about the movie. You can read their interview below/inside and we added the photoshoot in our gallery.
David O. Russell arrived a little late for the meeting last Saturday, but he wasn’t empty-handed. The director and writer of “American Hustle” brought a mint-green cooler bag large enough to contain a human head. He passed the bag to share it with Bradley Cooper, one of his stars in “American Hustle.”
“I bet I can tell you what’s in here,” the actor said before unzipping it. “Definitely broccoli.” Sure enough, he reached in pulled out a baggie of raw broccoli. Maybe these guys have been spending too much time together.
The official soundbites of Bradley on set of “American Hustle” were released. Be sure to watch it below. Thanks to our friend Luciana for the heads up!
