Bradley Cooper Reinvents Himself with Some Smooth French Talking

In case you care what he’s saying, a YouTuber was kind enough to translate Cooper’s interview. Different clips of the video have a combined total of tens of thousands of views.

Bradley Cooper went on a French news program to promote his new movie The Hangover Part II and walked away with a brand new reputation across Hollywood, the media, and with moviegoers. He accomplished this by conducting the entire interview in French, which instantaneously made him jaw-droppingly hot to everyone with sense enough to see it.

A good looking movie star speaking French fluently. If that could describe all of your clients, a publicist’s job would be much less stressful.

He’s most recognizable for playing jerks in Wedding Crashers and both Hangover movies. But it turns out he’s played nice guys, like on the TV show Alias. And he’s working on/seeking projects that will move him into some unfamiliar territory, like an attempt to play Tom Buchanan in a film version of The Great Gatsby. And if that’s not enough, he can cook.
