Bradley Cooper has Bulked Up Big Time!
I was blown away when I saw photos of the once slender yet masculine Bradley Cooper who has ballooned into this beast of a man and has put on, close to 40 lbs.! How’d he do it? What do I look like a personal trainer? I have no clue. But he’s certainly bridged the gap between man and beast!
Where lean abs used to be is a mass of twisting muscle and resting directly above that is a barrel chest! No joke, you have to check out these photos of him leaving his gym in L.A. to believe it. The new Bradley Cooper muscle man is jacked.
He is currently filming the film “American Sniper” where he will portray one of the deadliest Navy Seal’s “with 160 “confirmed” kills out of 255 claimed kills” (unofficially). Chris Kyle was the sniper in question and his New York Times Best Seller (‘American Sniper’) was what spurred the movie and consequently Cooper’s huge gains.
When I first saw pics of B-Coop from the Met Gala I was shocked to see him looking so burly. His new shaggy facial hair and bigger body looked so out of place on him but in a way still suited him. He is a gentleman that look good at any weight.
I couldn’t help but check out the comments on JustJared.com about Coopers new look and some of them were pretty harsh. Not that comments online are ever really THAT nice… now do I prefer him at this size? No. but do I still think he looks good? Definitely.
There is just something about him and his dedication to his acting career that sets him apart from others in his field. Of course his charm goes a long way AND his humor but I think it’s deeper than that. I think it’s his devotion to his roles and his commitment to properly portray someone he feels is deserving of a great portrayal. His intention for gaining the weight and performing the (at times) emotional scenes is to pay tribute to Kyle and his role. He will most certainly be taken seriously as an actor if he wasn’t before because of some of the more lighthearted roles including Hangover and American Hustle.
But between you and me I always knew he had it in him from the first time I watched Limitless. Such an awesome film!
