American Sniper's Fake Plastic Baby Has Everyone Talking - Watch Now!

The use of a fake plastic baby in American Sniper has the critics and fans talking and everyone seems to agree that it was a strange choice!

A clip from the film starring Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller is making waves around the Internet featuring the fake plastic baby and the subject has been touched upon in major publications and television programs. Some argue that the baby should have been made CGI or just cut from the scene entirely.

In a tweet (which has since been deleted), screenwriter Jason Hall explained, “hate to ruin the fun but real baby #1 showed up with a fever. Real baby #2 was no show. (Clint voice) Gimme the doll, kid.”

Watch the scene below and sound off in the comments – what do you think of the use of the plastic baby??

    He’s so cute with the baby-doll. Why on earth didn’t they reschedule the scene shoot with a real infant. Bobbing the hand up and down — hilarious.
    It was still a great movie and great performances by BC and SM.

    Here’s the thing film makers need to get through their thick skulls: We ALWAYS know when a movie/TV baby is fake. ALWAYS. And it’s horrible. There are babies — real babies — all around. Didn’t the American Sniper folks have a cameraman or someone in catering or ANYONE with a baby at home that could have come to the set for a couple hours?

    I feel bad for the movie and Cooper’s performance now getting hoodwinked over headlines about a fake baby. I’m embarrassed for any seasoned actor who was forced to wiggle a plastic baby’s arm to make it seem real.

  • Shivani Yadav

    Yeah, it really is a big disappointment to watch anything like this. They should have re-scheduled the shoot….

  • UseYourBigHead

    lmfao

  • janine

    Terrible!
    For this reason alone, no best picture for you Clint.

  • Louise

    That is absolutely ridiculous..it is so obvious and quite a distraction..shitty tacky nonsense.

  • Constance

    It’s called child safety and acting. Get over it. A newborn is fragile. Glad Clint had the sensitive cahonies to look after a real baby’s health. Sometimes you do what you have to do.
    F*CK EVERYONE ELSE

  • Constance

    I SEE! SO if a REAL BABY WAS ILL, CLINT EASTWOOD SHOULD HAVE JUST PUSHED IT INTO A MOVIE JUST FOR YOU NARCISSIST’S VIEWING PLEASURE?
    Nice, thinking there you cold-hearted creeps who should never be around children.

  • Constance

    SO you like endangering newborn’s health?

  • Constance

    Sorry, on Clint’s side. No movie is worth screwing with the life of a real baby. Let’s not, in a journey to acquiring inanimate statues, ignore the reality of the life of a real baby.

  • Carmen

    LOLOL!!! That looks ridiculous and minimizes the importance of the scene! How could they not find a baby? On a side note, props to Bradley for keeping a straight face – good acting buddy!

  • tania peguero

    are you kidding me? how cheap was their budget?

  • Missy

    I think we just intended to point out that they could have reschedules the scene shoot. No one suggests they persist in filming with a sick infant. Good grief.

  • Carmen

    Wow – Someone’s angry! LOL You’re ridiculous for being so mad.

  • Constance

    You need to understand how fragile a newborn is. I mean seriously….bemoaning that a fictional movie is less than what it is because the director has a healthy grasp of reality? Please. The doll hasn’t affected sales, has it?

  • Bradley disgusting

    Bradley movie is making people angry and making them want to kill Arabs say many articles. It is also bringing out racism on social media. Does Bradley know it was on the news in Turkey his name was added to the destroy list? It is same list that had Charlie Hebdo. I hope the other actors do not get hurt only because Bradley was chasing an Oscar. He has money for security and he knows the extras and other actors don’t. Bradley Cooper is disgusting.

  • Constance

    Then you know that every precaution is worth taking. Bradley could have had a cold, passed it on the the child and the child come down with something worse.

  • Carmen

    They could’ve gotten another baby. Duh

  • Carmen

    Buddy, you have anger issues. You bi-polar?

  • Constance

    No, you a narcissist?

  • Carmen

    LMAO!

  • Constance

    Maybe, princess, maybe. But I respect Clint more than you. :)

  • Constance

    I see I hit a nerve.

  • Carmen

    ROTFLMAO!!!! I’d hate to know you in person. You sound like a very angry human being.

  • Bradley Creeper

    Bradley Creeper is a pedo who beds little girls
    Pedophile Bradley too cheap to get a real baby
    on 60 million budget. Do NOT give greedy BC an Oscar

  • Constance

    You shouldn’t have to worry about that, doll. I do get angry if a child’s safety is compromised..Good to see you prefer movies over that.

  • Carmen

    Thanks for calling me princess. :) Awww…how sweet!

  • Constance

    If it makes you feel special.

  • Carmen

    Like everyone else has said, they should’ve gotten a different baby. This toy ruined the scene because it’s obvious. Clint’s movies should be better than this. Use a different baby or don’t use a baby at all. Stop getting so mad. Calm down, person.

  • Constance

    Never seen a newborn hooked up in an intensive care unit suffering from a debilitating RSV fever, huh? Struggling for breath? Slowly dying all because they were exposed to people? I hope you never get to see that.

  • Carmen

    What does that have to do with getting another baby? You’re so strange for being so angry and I’m done answering you.

  • DianneLMac

    I haven’t seen the movie but I don’t think the fake baby would have been much of an issue for me. It’s all right.

  • Constance

    Good, cause you don’t get it.

  • Constance

    I am a crazy 50 yearold on meds with cats who stalks loser Bradley. I have many names on JJ Hello Dan DollyPolly Colette Constance DinaMarie DianneLMac

  • Constance

    Issues, much?
    LOL I am 38, have a boyfriend, has been in education for over a decade and sensitive to children’s welfare.
    Looks like you are only a callous troll wannabe.
    Shame.

  • Constance

    Did you see all my messages below in bold letters? I am the psycho with many names on JJ all day defending pedo Bradley. Callme Colette or DinaMarie.

  • Constance

    And you SO don’t get reality to the point, you’ll fly off the handle and start harassing people. And they’re capital letters not bold letters, if you’re going to get back at me, at least get it right.
    Sad.

  • janine

    Real babies have been in lots of movies. Not newborns, no but real none the less. Even low budget movies have used babies and small children so it’s nothing new. I’m sure none of them were endangered, stop being so dramatic.

  • Constance

    lol You don’t get it either. Plus only some weird ungrateful people would look at a tangent to wildly successful film and nitpick a scene such as this.

  • Addie Lynn

    Why is no one talking about the total lack of continuity?
    Sienna’s hoodie goes from zipped to unzipped.

    It was Academy Award nominated for Film Editing. Seriously?

  • Pepperona

    LMFAO!

  • Mercyneal

    People like Michael Moore and Seth Rogan are insanely jealous of Clint Eastwood’s success.

  • Mercyneal

    Huh? Go fly a kite, pal.

  • Mercyneal

    Flagging your defamatory comment.

  • Mercyneal

    Nope people love this movie. You sound like English isn’t your first language. You clearly haven’t seen the movie, either.

  • Constance

    Yah, just seeing that?

  • Constance

    I love it when you clean house. :)

  • Shenanigans

    child safety was not on their mind, get over it. their budget and delays were the priority.

  • Constance

    Well, that’s a disturbing response. Let me rephrase…I respect FATE (or maybe it was God) for intervening and considering the life of a baby.
