Bradley Cooper Gains 40 Pounds To Play Navy SEAL: See The Transformation Photos Inside!

Bradley Cooper takes this acting thing seriously. The 39-year-old actor will play the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in the upcoming movie directed by Clint Eastwood, American Sniper.

There have been some shocking photos of Bradley Cooper floating around the internet lately. Photos of him leaving the gym with a manly beard and an extremely tight workout shirt.

Do you even lift, bro? It’s clear Bradley Cooper has been bulking for a few months now. We have to imagine this process is a little easier than losing 38 pounds, which is what Matthew McConaughey had to do for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.


It certainly paid off for Matthew. His performance in the movie won him the Oscar for Best Actor this year. Bradley Cooper is hoping he will have the same success with American Sniper.

Actor Eric Close, who will also star in the movie, told E! News that Bradley Cooper is working hard.

“He put on like 40 pounds. He’s really been working hard. He looks great. He’s really taken on this character…He really takes this story personally and wants to do an honorable job for Chris’ memory and for his family.”

Awesome. Bradley Cooper continues to show why he’s one of the most popular actors in the business right now.
