The first thing you’ll notice in this exclusive sneak peek at Bradley Cooper as chef Adam Jones, is that the actor is much trimmer than he was in American Sniper.
Cooper had to shed both his Navy SEAL character and the weight he put on for his Oscar-nominated role quickly before moving to London to film the culinary picture Adam Jones. “I started bringing [Cooper] back down to regular calorie count on his food,” the actor’s personal trainer, Jason Walsh, recently revealed to Yahoo Movies. “Then the body naturally regulates to go back down to his normal size.”
The film, directed by John Wells (August: Osage County) and starring Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina), Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey), Sienna Miller (Foxcatcher), Daniel Brühl (Rush), Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks), and Uma Thurman (Nymphomaniac Vol. I and II), opens in theaters Oct. 2.
