To think we almost lost Bradley Cooper to pots, pans and and a stove top.
The actor admits he once wanted to be a chef.
"I just sort of thought it was cool and that chefs were cool when I was a kid and I just thought that chefs were like rock stars," Cooper says. "So I thought maybe I'd be a chef but then I realized really early it's too hot. The pressure is too insane. I also thought I wanted to be a ninja, you know what I mean, but then I realized that I only wanted to play them in movies."
In Burnt (in theaters now), he plays Adam Jones, a drug addict chef who tries to make a career comeback after getting some sobriety under his belt. Directed by John Wells, the film's cast also includes Sienna Miller, Daniel Brühl, Matthew Rhys, Omar Sy, Alicia Vikander, Uma Thurman and Emma Thompson.
