Bradley Cooper Explains How 'American Sniper' Was 'Life-Changing'

Bradley Cooper keeps very bundled up as he walks to the subway en route to his Broadway play Elephant Man on Wednesday morning (January 28) in New York City.

The 40-year-old actor recently told People how life changing American Sniper was for him.

“I’ve always been interested on a personal level in helping our vets. I’ve been a part of USO on tours for over eight years,” Bradley said. “I had an appreciation for veterans before this, but what I definitely did not know is the toll that it takes on the family.”

“People were willing to express themselves in a format that they would never do normally,” Bradley added. “But because they saw Chris’s story, they were willing to say, ‘Thank you for putting a guy I can relate to up there and have it be something right away that I know is accurate.’”

“It’s been life-changing,” Bradley added.

FYI: Bradley is wearing a Fjallraven jacket.

    He’s been apart of USO tours for over 8 years? I thought he had only done 2 tours a few years ago.

    I love how he continues to praise the military and the film and not back down to the vipers or become self-conscious because the subject matter is causing him scrutiny as an actor. Several years ago when the movie ‘The Exorcism of Emily Rose’ came out two of the lead actors involved were so embarrassed about appearing in a religious-themed movie that involved intense elements of mysticism that during the entire promotion of the movie they repeatedly insulted Catholicism and elements of the movie itself (which was based on true events that happened in Germany in the 1970′s). It was pathetic how they were given a job to do (and did it well, I might add — it’s a good movie) but then wanted to appear too cool for it and totally above the subject material. Arrogant. Bradley Cooper is doing the opposite of that with American Sniper. I haven’t seen it yet but it’s on the agenda during the next few days.
