Bradley Cooper Ate 6,000 Calories a Day to Transform Into American Sniper's Chris Kyle

Bradley Cooper Ate 6,000 Calories a Day to Transform Into American Sniper's Chris Kyle

Bradley Cooper breaks into a swift pace to try and catch a subway on Wednesday (January 21) in New York City.

The 40-year-old Oscar nominee recently opened up about how he transformed into Chris Kyle for American Sniper.

“I had a goal of 30 pounds of muscle. Not bodybuilding, but to be like Chris. He was a very big, thick, strong man,” Bradley said. “I had to get to the point where I believed I was him. At 185 pounds, it would’ve been a joke. His size was such a part of who he was.”

The diet “was a real shock to my body. If it’s pizza and cake, that’s one thing. Putting 6,000 calories a day in your body gets old quick.”

    He is getting pathetic , can he stop talking about his weight, and he did not look muscular he looked fat I did not notice muscle just fat and his camel toe with those short pants

  • Lillian

    I’m afraid all of these actors are going to end up with diabetes later on in life for these roles they are playing, all the yoyo weight gains and losses is not healthy. Just use your acting talents, no need to starve or gain lots of bulk to be good and convincing.

  • Jamie

    I worry about that too, but I’m sure Bradley worked with the best people to make sure he gained and lost the weight in the most healthy way possible.

    Aren’t most (or all) of the people who vote for the SAG awards members of the Academy? It’s just odd that he wouldn’t get a SAG nomination, but got one for the Oscars. Also, does anyone know if Leo actually hosted that event he was rumored to be doing for ‘American Sniper’?
