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.”

“My hope is that if someone is having a political conversation about whether we should or should not have been in Iraq, whether the war is worth fighting, whether we won, whether we didn’t, why are we still there, all those [issues], that really—I hope—is not one that they would use this movie as a tool for,” Bradley told The Daily Beast.

He continued, saying: “And for me, and for Clint, this movie was always a character study about what the plight is for a soldier.”

The 40-year-old actor made an appearance on The Today Show that morning to promote his new movie American Sniper and responded to complaints he is too handsome to play the late Chris Kyle.

“The first job I’ve ever got was on Alias, and I was not the … good-looking guy,” Bradley said. “I was the sidekick, best friend. And in Wedding Crashers, I was the jerk. So, no, I never sort of suffered that ‘oh, he’s too handsome’ [problem] ever.”
