Bradley recently shared that he didn’t feel like he fit into the role for American Sniper at first.

“Initially I thought, ‘There’s no way I could play Chris.’ I thought Chris Pratt should do it. And then I started to get to know him. And there was something about his energy in these interviews that I started watching where I just sort of- there’s something about him. And I thought, ‘Oh, I can tap into that,’” Bradley shared to CBS.

    He looks weird. Did he get something or many things done? Looking more and more like current Bruce Jenner! ewww

  • Pamela S

    Are you serious? *rolls eyes.

  • Justin Aniston

    WHAT THE HELL? Is that Bradley Cooper?!

  • Cate

    Agree with other posters. Can’t put my finger on it but it looks like he has had some kind of work done. Whatever he had done was not a good idea. He looks odd.

  • leila

    I guess dating a girl that could be his daughter inspired this mid-life plastic surgery that went way WRONG, he looks horrible now

  • zend

    clean bradley cooper = hottie not.
    5 oclock shadow bradley = hottie

  • Pamela S

    He still has a sweet personality. At least I think so. ;)

  • spinclass312

    Honestly, I think it’s mainly his hairstyle and also the lack of tan. He’s one of those guys who can look very average without a bit of grooming. And he needs a bit of facial hair to make he look more manly and round out his puffy plus sharp features. See his IMDb profile photo.

  • Zoee

    I don’t know but his face has change. Did Renee Zellweger convince him to go to her plastic surgeon, but i really think its just that he have aged a lot in one year and he´s starting to have grandma face oh my GOSH call me crazy but he is starting to look like BRUCE JENNER

  • Zoee

    He did a Renee Zellweger to his face

  • Pamela S

    No, he just lost weight…TOO MUCH and too fast.

  • Zoee

    Well maybe that could be, he also lost his upper lip

  • Pamela S

    Seriously, losing weight in your face does that too. I’m not blowing air your *ss, I promise. It’s apart of his role too..and it’s longer than a movie shoot and it’s noticeable.

    Bradley has been listening to critics. Many people think Christ Pratt should have played Chris Kyle. Chris Kyle is a much much better actor than Bradley. He was excellent in Zero dark thirty and he looks like Chris Kyle. Bradley wanted the oscar, he took the role for himself. His poor acting and ugly face does NOt deserve an oscar.

  • Muppet

    Yes, it looks like that….he looks old and odd.

  • Manipulator

    Did Bradley nose get bigger? Did jaw get bigger too? Why is he wearing a wig hair piece? Fake ugly talentless man thinks he is 20 after he is bedding his 20 ugly daughter. Your dad is proud.

  • Zoee

    Actually his jaw did not get bigger it gets very very short

  • treadmilllurve

    Honestly, Bradley isn’t that bad. Chris Pratt was funny in Guardians but he was barely in ZD30, so don’t exaggerate. Plus he did the same kind of goofy voice / face in both movies I remember him in. Jurassic World looks like it will bomb.
