Bradley Cooper—in the role that inspired him to become an actor—leads an ensemble production of The Elephant Man on Broadway.
Extreme beauty and extreme ugliness have a similar effect on us: We can’t seem to turn our gaze from either. Perhaps that has something to do with why it’s become customary for unusually handsome actors to play disfigured historical characters, from Daniel Day-Lewis as the cerebral-palsy sufferer Christy Brown in My Left Foot to Eddie Redmayne as the wheelchair-bound Stephen Hawking in the recently released The Theory of Everything. Onstage, the go-to part in this category for the last 35 years has been John Merrick, the horribly deformed Victorian Englishman at the heart of The Elephant Man, Bernard Pomerance’s durable 1977 biographical drama. This month, Bradley Cooper follows in the lurching footsteps of a long line of easy-on-the-eyes leading men, including David Bowie and Billy Crudup, to don a white loincloth, contort his features, and—without the help of makeup or prosthetics—bring to life the benighted, misshapen man who became the toast of 1880s London society, as The Elephant Man returns to Broadway.
The latest issue of Empire Magazine (currently on stands, featuring The Hunger Games on cover) has a one-page featuring and reviewing Serena, and you can find now digital scans in our gallery.
As a constant in all reviews about the film, they’re highlighting Bradley’s performance:
Cooper achieves the near-impossible, making an entitled, macho man – who intends to hunt down the last of the panthers in the Carolinas – a resilient, striving figure rather to be admired and a sympathetic, classically flawled, tragic hero type.
Bradley is once again at Vulture’s Most Valuable Stars list. Check it:

From director Clint Eastwood comes “American Sniper,” starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history. But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter.
U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world.
