Bradley Cooper Covers Vanity Fair

Bradley CooperBradley Cooper covers the January 2015 issue of Vanity Fair, where he talks about his latest movie, American Sniper.

On how his past addictions and losing his father prepared him for American Sniper: “Losing someone close to me. Going through love and loss… knowing what’s important. Realizing that the bottom line is that all I got is me, so it’s about time to stop trying to be something that I think you would want me to be. Or that would give me what I think I need. As you get older, thank God, your body deteriorates, but your soul sort of flourishes.”

On getting in shape for the movie: “I did it naturally because I’ve been sober for 10 years and didn’t want to do anything. I had a realistic conversation. Can I do this in three months naturally? Can I gain 30 pounds of fucking muscle? I didn’t know if I would be able to do it or not. Thank God — luckily — my fucking body reacted fast.”

On judgment: “I see life much more gray as I get older. I was so sort of black-and-white in my late 20s. There’s right and there’s wrong and that’s it. That’s a tough way to live…. It’s rare that I judge somebody, really rare. I think people feel that, so it’s sort of easy to get close to somebody if you don’t feel judged by them.”

On filming American Sniper: “I always knew I wanted to be in the trenches with a director making the movie. I always felt that’s what I’m supposed to be doing. I always knew deep down that if I’m not going to do that then I’m not too long for this business.”
