Bradley Cooper on JLaw’s dancing: “God bless her, she put that crotch in my face”

Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper will haunt your nightmares from the cover of the fall issue of M magazine, which is making its grand return as a quarterly Conde Nast rag since meeting its (first?) untimely end in the 1990s. The magazine is aiming for a target audience of men with a household income of $200,000 and its debut issue features an article called “I Married a Billionaire.” With that sort of demographic, I have to wonder why they’re running with a cover that features Bradley Cooper as your Friendly Neighborhood Serial Killer. Then the editorial spread features him, you know, standing at a urinal and presumably taking a leak. How charming.

Bradley is still promoting his turn in the upcoming Silver Linings Playbook alongside Jennifer Lawrence. Both of them play damaged individuals (with requisite psychiatric issues) who find some recovery in a friendship with a capital “F.” I still think that BCoop is incapable of being anything other than way too earnest in this role. Of course, Harvey Weinstein really wants this movie to score a third consecutive Best Picture victory for the Weinstein Co., and who knows if that will happen. It did score the People’s Choice Award at TIFF and has some great reviews heading into Oscar movie season. Also, Bradley and Jennifer dance, and he teased her a lot in an MTV interview:

The quirky love story between Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper in David O. Russell’s next film, Silver Linings Playbook, focuses on the sometimes funny, always heartfelt tale of two people looking for something. Eventually, they find each other, and ballroom dancing.

It seems that dancing got very intimate for the twosome. When MTV News asked just how long Cooper spent up close and personal with Lawrence’s crotch, he replied, “We did it like three times a week for like a month. God bless her, she put that crotch in my face. No, she worked so hard on that dance honestly. I didn’t have the ability to because of the characters in the movie … And she rehearsed and killed it.”

Lawrence, however, was a bit more modest when it came to the enthusiasm around her skills on the dance floor. “I am the worst dancer ever,” Lawrence said. “No, I was supposed to suck after I already danced and sucked. It kind of explains why I move my body like a baby colt.”

It’s hard to believe that JLaw is terrible at anything, even dancing, but she must have a weakness. Then again, I’m gathering that she was supposed to suck at dancing in this movie, which may make the concept far too complicated for me to understand. What I do contemplate though, is whether or not Bradley got back with Zoe Saldana not only to promote The Words (as Kaiser suggested) but also to throw off any suggestion that he and JLaw really did grow too close while filming this movie in very close quarters. After all, nearly every Bradley Cooper movie (aside from those Hangover flicks) culminates in a rumored (or possibly staged) romance with a co-star. Honestly, I don’t know or care whether Bradley is into chicks or dudes or both, but I do think he has a high priority at this moment in time for concentrating on his career. Whether or not that strategy includes PR-friendly romances is still technically (I guess) up for debate.

Incidentally, here’s the new Silver Linings theatrical trailer, which looks a lot better than the first trailer. Instead of looking like a romcom masquerading as tragiccomedy, this looks like a pretty good, heartwarming film. Even with milquetoast Bradley Cooper in the lead, I will probably give this one a whirl.

    Hahahahahaha! Oh I love JLaw! She’s a badazz! Wish she could kick KStew’s azz.

    Thanks so much for that Kaiser, the bubbles in my lemonade just went up my nose.

    He does nothing for me but annoy

    • tripmom says:

      I agree. I just can’t with this gerbil. He looks like he’d be a whiner, doesn’t he?

    • Raven Sparrow says:

      Ugh! Me too! I don’t know why but he bothers me.
      I tried watching the Hangover because everyone said it was so funny, but 10 minutes watching BC and I just couldn’t continue. Have the feeling he really is like that in real life! maybe he’s not.
      Still, it stops me from seeing other movies he’s in.

    • Canda says:

      Same. Many of my girlfriends are just batty about him, and I just don’t see it. I mean, he’s alright looking, but there’s something… off… maybe it’s the hair? I keep trying to picture him with a better hairdo, I wonder if it would make a difference?

      Also, I’ve always gotten gay vibes from this guy for some reason. He reminds me of NPH — great at the straight characters, but totally gay once the acting is turned off. That might be just me, though.

  4. Dreamtime Alice says:

    Actually, I’d ride BC until he drops.

  5. Liv says:

    The trailer looks great. I love Jennifer Lawrence! Hope she gets an Oscar nomination. And they have great chemistry!

    ‘…standing at a urinal and presumably taking a leak. How charming.’

    Perhaps some would call this art. ;)

  7. V4Real says:

    JLAW? Somehow it just doesn’t have the same ring as JLO but it’s workable. Love Brad’s blue eyes on the cover of the mag though.

  8. Esmom says:

    He’s one of those guys who, to me, looks good at first glance or from far away. So the extreme close up shot is not the way to go, lol. Even in full photoshopped glory, he does nothing for me.

    Not sure what I think of his romantic preferences, it’s so hard to get a real sense of him because he does seem so “packaged” for the media and public consumption.

  9. ramona says:

    That close-up is truly startling.

  10. lucy2 says:

    Holy crap, that cover is freaky.

  11. Lindsey says:

    Look, I saw The Words and it was bad BECAUSE of milquetoast Bradley Cooper. Despite having a good cast, made great by the presence and gravitas of Jeremy Irons, the movie sucked barnacles. I think I’ll miss this one.

  12. Madpoe says:

    The cover of this mag just bit me!

  13. Lou says:

    Jennifer lawrence is easily my favourite actress right now, even more than Emma Stone(who i’m not yet convinced has much ‘range’). I can’t wait to see this, if she as good as they say&is gonna get another oscar nomination – i’d be so happy for her!

    • hoya_chick says:

      Emma Stone plays the same character in every movie! I thought I was the only one who noticed that! Easy A was funny but everything since has been a derivative. No range at all. Love Jennifer, I don’t think I’ll be seeing this though probably catch it on Netflix. The other movie that period one with her and Bradley looks good I may check that out.

  14. stellalovejoydiver says:

    I like BCoop, I somehow find him charming and endearing. I think he, JLaw, maybe de Niro prob get a nomination, considering that now 10 movies can get nominated for Best Picture, I´m sure it gets a nom, too, even if it´s only mediocre(remember extremly loud and incredibly close, or was it the other way around?). The Master will win Best Picture, which is also a Weinstein production.
    Now to something completly different: how to recognize different type of trees from quite a long way away: No 1: the Larch. I mean, anyone else excited to see Smashed with Aaron Paul and Mary Elizabeth Winstead? I think they have pretty good chances to get a Oscar nom as well.

  15. diva says:

    I don’t get the appeal of either one of them. I like Hangover and Limitless. Hunger Games was meh for me.

  16. hoya_chick says:

    I haven’t read anything above yet, I just want to say OMG that pic is scary! And as Micheal K would say: TEEFFSSSS. LOL

  17. Turd Fergussen says:

    So wait, this is about a dude who has a mental breakdown, meets a broken girl who’s hoed around, and then they decide to get into ballroom dancing? Sounds riveting. ** eye roll **

  18. the original bellaluna says:

    To me, the only movies he makes sense in are the Hangover movies, because it seems like he’s only adept at playing himself. And he totally strikes me as THAT GUY.

    He does have gorgeous eyes, but he and his veneers need to lay off the whitening sauce.

  19. Samantha says:

    I’ve had a soft spot for Bradley Cooper since he played Will in Alias. But that cover really IS creepy.

  20. Aubra says:

    Bradley is going to get a Oscar nod for this one. I also want tobaee th ither film him and JLaw made. I think these will be what keeps his jumpoff “relationship” with Zoe SalDULLna out of my mind. Hollywood loves to classify everyhing as dating when its lesser than. Lol JLaw may steal alot of scenes from him in his one…can’t wait

  21. Amy says:

    Aren’t Lawrence and Cooper starring in two movies together? This one and another one where they play husband and wife I think. No wonder there would be rumors about the two of them getting together. However I don’t think it will happen!

  22. oivey says:

    If no one has mentioned this, in the book Jen’s character, Tiffany, loves to dance and is a dancer. It’s a great book and I’m still not convinced that he’s good for the role, mostly because, well…ick.

    @Amy, you’re thinking of Serena. Another great book. She’s playing Serena.

    I’m gunna stop before I really get into stanning mode.lol

  23. j.eyre says:

    Thank you for this trailer. When I saw the first one, I felt the movie had missed a lot of what the book was about. This one looks much closer. It still looks like they got the dad wrong.

  24. Amanda_M87 says:

    His eyes look so creepy on that cover, and not in a good way :(
