HOW BRADLEY COOPER GOT RIPPED

Bradley Cooper’s career didn’t really take off until he landed the part of unlovable, testosterone-fuelled Sack Lodge in Wedding Crashers. Before then, he was in the audience of Inside the Actors Studio popping a question to Sean Penn before trotting off home to wonder what was going to become of his own measly acting career. Since then, he’s transformed into one of Hollywood’s most sought-after A-listers, becoming in the process an object of desire for women and the hero of young men everywhere.

Starring in The Hangover series of films as a fun-loving teacher, Silver Linings Playbook as a heartbroken divorcee (and teacher again what the fuck), as well as Limitless as a mentally unstable writer who suddenly develops an astronomical intellect, he’s a guy who is known for his good looks and somewhat jaded and intelligent – but often bland – characters – but certainly not his body.

But now, thanks to his latest role in American Sniper, Coops has joined an illustrious long list of ripped-to-fuck American action heroes that includes Arnie, Sly Stallone and Steven Seagal. Fuck teaching.

That’s right, Bradley Cooper, is no longer a teacher whose only body part he shows us is his sharp tongue. He is now ripped-to-fuck with a body to die for. But how did he get his body?
