Tag: Bradley Cooper (1-10 of 23)
While we all might be a little fearful of Bradley Cooper playing a sport that could damage that face, there’s no need to worry — no faces were harmed in the playing of this game. Jimmy Fallon introduced “faceketball” where both men wear basketball hoops on their heads and try to score on the other person’s. What we really learned during this game was that Fallon isn’t so great at shooting hoops. The game was supposed to go until one of them scored three, but after two, they stop.

Hot guys selling ice cream? It might just be the new trend of the summer.
On the heels of True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello shilling for Magnum Gold, a new commercial features former Sexiest Man Alive Bradley Cooper chilling at a fancy party eating some Häagen-Dazs ice cream. Cue Cooper locking eyes with a beautiful lady and then — of course — trying to leave the party with her. But does said pretty gal want Cooper… or his dessert? I think you know where this is going.

In a culture saturated by best and worst lists, it’s easy to fall into the trap of labeling everything you see either “brilliant” or “awful.” Sometimes, though, entertainment is solidly middle-of-the-road — and that was certainly the case with Zach Galifianakis’s third SNL hosting stint. It never soared to the heights of his first few outings, but it was a solidly funny night that featured a few inspired moments — and, perhaps more importantly, only one outright clunker of a sketch. That’s a pretty good batting average as far as Saturday Night Live goes.
The night got off to a slow start with another Fox & Friends cold open. As funny as Bobby Moynihan’s dumber-than-dirt commentator can be — I loved how he thinks the “W” in WNBA stands for “worse” — the sketch itself is the very definition of low-hanging fruit (“hey, those guys on Fox News sure are conservative!”). And if the funniest thing about a bit is the stream of one-liners that quickly scrolls by as it ends, it may be time to reevaluate the rest of what’s happening onscreen.
But when Galifianakis actually took the stage, he set the tone for a night that would be kookier and more surreal than the average SNL installment — if not generally funnier. READ FULL STORY »
Watch Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro riff in 'Silver Linings Playbook' alternate ending -- VIDEO
Jennifer Lawrence capped off a star-cementing year with a Best Actress Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook and now, with the film’s DVD release just a few days away, The Weinstein Company has released an alternate ending to the box-office smash indie flick.
The scene, via MTV News, is largely an expansion of the theatrical version’s ending. After scoring a 5 at the dance competition and realizing they were meant for one another, Pat (Bradley Cooper) and Tiffany (Lawrence) are seen at home on game day with his parents (Robert De Niro and Jackie Weaver) and some family friends.
The epilogue doesn’t really add anything to the story, but it’s a great excuse to spend a bit more time with the lovable and smart-mouthed gang. And it’s pretty excellent to watch Lawrence and De Niro riff together over the unacceptability of wearing a rival team’s jersey during one of the fam’s beloved Philadelphia Eagles’ games.
We suppose the clip is a pretty spoiler-y if you haven’t seen the film, which landed eight Oscar noms including Best Picture, Best Director, and individual acting nods for each of its four principal actors. Silver Linings hits stores on April 30. Check out the film’s alternate ending below.
Bradley Cooper isn’t content to just idly sit around Boston waiting for the production of David O. Russell’s American Hustle to resume in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings and manhunt. Friday, he decided to pay a visit to Jeff Bauman, Jr., the 27-year-old who lost both of his legs below the knee as a result of the explosions at the Boston Marathon.
Julian Edelman, a wide reciever for the New England Patriots tweeted a photo of the visit, showing a dapper-looking Cooper smiling with Bauman, clutching a football, and Edelman.

According to People, the Oscar-nominated actor was also present at President Obama’s interfaith service tribute to victims.

Jon Stewart to Boston: ‘Thank you for … solidifying my belief in humanity’
In 2004, ABC Family premiered the TV movie I Want to Marry Ryan Banks. It stars a post-Alias Bradley Cooper as a talent manager who convinces his friend/falling star client Ryan Banks (Jason Priestley) to do a Bachelor-type reality show to rehab his image. The twist: The sane, likable contestant Ryan is supposed to choose, Charlie (Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Emma Caulfield), falls for Cooper’s character instead.
If you’ve seen the movie — penned by Chad Hodge, the future creator of NBC’s The Playboy Club who is currently developing the Twin Peaks-esque limited series Wayward Pines with M. Night Shyamalan for Fox — odds are you’ll be thrilled to hear it’s debuting on Hallmark this Saturday night at 9 p.m. ET. And after reminiscing with Hodge, we can confirm that you are not alone.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Are you aware of how much people love this movie, or did our interview request come as a complete shock?
CHAD HODGE: Your email was forwarded to me, and I laughed because I have had that conversation with so many people — people I know and people I don’t know. I’ll be out at a bar with friends, and they’re like, “That’s the guy who wrote I Want to Marry Ryan Banks.” And it’s like, “You wrote that movie? I’ve watched that movie 19 times.” I love that of all the things in my career, this is the thing that everyone’s obsessed with.
I imagine it’s women like me, in their mid-30s.
Totally. And women in their mid-20s: Girls who were in high school and sick with a cold for three days probably saw it, and they’ve just been watching it ever since. I don’t know. It’s so funny. Girls of every age. Or gay guys, of course. READ FULL STORY »
The Hangover Part III finally has a trailer. Judging from the footage, it’s about three friends — one handsome (Bradley Cooper), one short (Ed Helms), and one fat (Zach Galifianakis) — who all go to a funeral and then to Las Vegas, where they walk through a dark hallway before watching John Goodman shoot someone. Later, a giraffe gets decapitated. Before that, Galifianakis appears to make Melissa McCarthy cry with a lollipop.
What is The Hangover Part III really about? Plot details have been sealed tight, but we do know that the three amigos gather around Galifianakis’ Alan after the death of his father. Plus one of them will probably touch a penis.
Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Channing Tatum, and more: Which Sexiest Man Alive was the sexiest at the Oscars? -- POLL
Despite the shiny hair and even shinier dresses of Hollywood’s leading ladies at last night’s Oscars, I found my eye wandering to the dapper leading men. Whether the actors were dancing on stage, growing sophisticated beards, or winning major awards, as my eye wandered I realized what many of these handsome men had in common: seven of them had been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive. Denzel Washington earned the title in 1996, George Clooney in 1997, Richard Gere in 1999, Ben Affleck in 2002, Clooney again in 2006, Hugh Jackman in 2008, Bradley Cooper in 2011, and Channing Tatum in 2012.
So which of the Sexiest Men Alive was the sexiest last night? Were you struck by Clooney’s beard, Cooper’s slicked-back hair, Washington’s ageless charm, Jackman’s chivalry, Affleck’s tears, Tatum’s dance moves, or Gere’s glasses? Cast your vote in the poll below!
