Bradley Cooper Debuts Silver Linings Playbook With Robert, Without Jennifer
Bradley Cooper enjoyed the last days of his reign as People's Sexiest Man Alive last night on the red carpet at the NYC premiere of Silver Linings Playbook. The magazine announces their 2012 pick tomorrow! Yesterday, Bradley was in the company of costars Robert De Niro, Jacki Weaver, Chris Tucker, and Julia Stiles. We spoke with Bradley about the joys of shooting the picture in his hometown, Philadelphia. He said, "This was a good chance to shoot Philly for Philly . . . the neighborhood, the people. It felt very close to home. My uncles were there. My uncle read [Robert De Niro's] lines for [Robert] to get the accent. Jacki Weaver hung out with my mom. It was kind of a family affair."
Absent from the film's Big Apple premiere was Bradley's leading lady Jennifer Lawrence. Jennifer was able to promote their film over the weekend, though. Jennifer Lawrence showed off her dark hair, and an all-black outfit, for a special screening on Sunday. She was nonetheless present in the minds of her costars last night. Costars like Chris called Jennifer's performance in Silver Linings Playbook "great" and "fantastic" — stay tuned for more on Jennifer and Bradley in this afternoon's PopSugar Rush.
