Bradley Cooper tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Buzz Bissinger that his past struggles—including addiction, the wrenching loss of his father, and the restlessness of a career that went so long unfulfilled—have helped him prepare for his most challenging role yet, as Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle in Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper. “Losing someone close to me. Going through love and loss . . . knowing what’s important,” Cooper tells Bissinger. “Realizing that the bottom line is that all I got is me, so it’s about time to stop trying to be something that I think you would want me to be. Or that would give me what I think I need. As you get older, thank God, your body deteriorates, but your soul sort of flourishes.”

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 Elephant Man” had it’s first preview last night on Broady. We have added the photos of Bradley in our gallery. The official opening will be on December 7. Be sure to head over to Broadway.com to buy your tickets!

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.
