Hollywood superstar Bradley Cooper has become one of the biggest actors in the movie industry over the past few years, so it is no surprise that he has become very in demand. Bradley plays the role of real-life Navy Seal Chris Kyle in the upcoming movie American Sniper and the actor has opened up about preparing to play the role.
Bradley Cooper had to bulk up for the role
 
Cooper explained, "Chris was 230lbs. He was a monster and I just said there’s no way. If I don’t believe I’m Chris then no one else is going to believe I’m Chris. I need to figure out how he talks and how he walks and the only way to do that was to try to get as big as he is. That was just to get to a point where I could start to believe that I was him. I did a lot of research and there was tons out there. It felt like I had an honour to pretend to be him and I loved every moment of walking in his shoes."
 
As well as admitting that he did initially have concerns about being able to pull off the role, while also talking about how he prepared to play Chris Kyle in American Sniper, Bradley Cooper also went on to talk about the story of the film. While it is fair to assume that this is a war movie of sorts, Bradley also reveals that there is a touching love story in the movie too.

Cooper added, "The other thing about this movie is that it’s a wonderful love story. Taya Kyle, Chris’ wife, played by Sienna Miller, really matches him with energy and strength. You have these two very strong characters who come in contact with each other and there’s a lot of fire, love and pain because of it. This is his story. It’s a story about this man, what it was like to become a seal and balancing the life of being a soldier of war and a father at home and what that did to him."
 
As well as starring Bradley Cooper, the American Sniper cast also includes Sienna Miller, Jonathan Groff, Kyle Gallner, Luke Grimes, Jake McDorman, and Marnette Patterson, among others. American Sniper is directed by Clint Eastwood and is out now on limited release in the US, with a nationwide release coming on January 16, the same date the movie opens in the UK.
