Bradley Cooper: I Rarely Talk to Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence.

Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are one of Hollywood's most celebrated on-screen movie couples. But, did you know the two actors rarely talk to each other outside of work? In a recent interview with Deadline, Bradley Cooper revealed that he rarely ever talks to Jennifer Lawrence outside of making movies. But, he understands that there is something special about their on-screen chemistry. He argues it all started when he had to learn their now famous dance routine in Silver Linings Playbook. “I wonder if these guys who do Dancing With The Stars like have a connection forever. I really do think that really provided the basis by which we can just work together. We don’t talk often, but when I showed up in Boston for Joy, then all of a sudden it was like we never stopped. We just started where we left off, and that’s rare. It’s just easy to look at her and feel like I’m telling the truth,” he said. Jennifer Lawrence Bradley Cooper Helga Esteb / Shutterstock.com

Cooper also touched on what it was like working with Lawrence in Joy and enjoys the fact he's not her love interest. “I’m glad she found him because he’s somebody who believes in her. By the way, that was really fun to play. And it was all real. You know, there was a guy who gave Joy a chance and she was the first at doing a spokesperson at QVC. It all happened,”  he said.

Maybe it’s like fear, because when you work with him, you really are acting without a net. I mean, you have to be vulnerable and you have to take chances, and maybe that’s some part of me, the fear of jumping off the plane or the bridge, or out of a helicopter

Cooper also talked about how he always tries to convince director David O. Russell not to cast him in a movie. "I pitched him this actor who I was like. I don’t know what that is. Maybe I need to talk to somebody. Because the truth is I do my best work with him and I feel like I really can latch on to his rhythm and what he’s looking for. Maybe it’s like fear, because when you work with him, you really are acting without a net. I mean, you have to be vulnerable and you have to take chances, and maybe that’s some part of me, the fear of jumping off the plane or the bridge, or out of a helicopter, The moment before, I think maybe I’m not the right guy, maybe I shouldn’t do this, but he just pushes me out there, no matter what,”  he says."
