Bradley Cooper has finally seen the Hunger Games. It’s about time too – he’s just acted with its leading lady, Jennifer Lawrence, in two of her next movies, ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ and ‘Serena’.
After getting honored with the Hollywood Actor award at last night’s Hollywood Film awards, E! Online reports that he said, “I have now seen Hunger Games. That is a brutal movie. Are you kidding me? Oh, my God!”
He also praises Jennifer Lawrence, saying, “she’s amazing” and adds that he’s not surprised that she could play ‘bad-ass’ so well. He also jokes that he’s auditioned for roles in the upcoming Hunger Games movies, but hasn’t heard back, saying, “You know, I’ve put myself on tape for four of the roles. I haven’t heard back yet.”
Cooper and Lawrence are both getting extremely strong reviews for their lead roles in the upcoming ‘Silver Linings Playbook – most critics are unanimous in their admiration for Lawrence especially, and say that she’s a surefire shot for an Oscar nomination in February. They also add that the film, after winning the People’s Choice award at the Toronto International Film festival, will also likely pick up a Best Picture nomination, and David Fincher a best Director nomination.
