Bradley Cooper has put on a whopping 40 pounds — but there's a reason!
"He put on like 40 pounds," said Nashvillestar Eric Close, who will co-star alongside the Oscar-nominated actor in American Sniper. "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 his family."
American Sniper is based on Kyle's book, American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History.
Cooper will next lend his voice to the upcoming superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy, which hits theaters this summer.
