Bradley Cooper Admits That He Wanted to Be a Chef

The actor and star of Burnt said that he thought chefs were like rock stars when he was younger

Cooper developed a love for food at a young age.

Bradley Cooper is the star of the new movie Burnt — a film about two-star Michelin chef Adam Jones, who owns a restaurant in Paris and is vying for his third star, but is also troubled with a drug addiction and other bad habits.

Well, the actor admitted to E! Online that at one point in his life, he 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 told E! Online. “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.”

Cooper previously played a chef role on the television series Kitchen Confidential and said that he has always been fascinated with food.

“Growing up in an Italian household, my grandmother was an incredible cook and we just grew up with basically food being all that we talked about,” Cooper told E! Online. “You either talked about what you were going to eat, what you just ate, and what you're going to eat tomorrow.”

Burnt premiered in theaters on October 30.


Lady Gaga Admits She and Bradley Cooper Wanted People to Believe They Were Dating

Lady Gaga opened up to Oprah Winfrey in ELLE's December issue about the Bradley Cooper dating rumors that consumed fans and tabloids for months this year. The reality is they were never romantically involved, but Gaga said that they wanted people to buy they could be with their Oscar "Shallow" performance. They purposely fed into the hype that night.

But taking a performance based on a film where they played love interests and turning it into real-life romance speculation was a little much. "Quite frankly, I think the press is very silly," she started. "I mean, we made a love story. For me, as a performer and as an actress, of course we wanted people to believe that we were in love. And we wanted people to feel that love at the Oscars. We wanted it to go right through the lens of that camera and to every television that it was being watched on. And we worked hard on it, we worked for days. We mapped the whole thing out&mdashit was orchestrated as a performance."

"You were orchestrating it as a performance to evoke exactly what it did," Winfrey said.

"It did," Gaga agreed. "In truth, when we talked about it, we went, 'Well, I guess we did a good job!'"

Gaga called Cooper a "beautiful father" and agreed with Winfrey's assessment that there was clear proof in the performance itself that the Cooper dating rumors were hearsay. Winfrey pointed out that Cooper "said if they had been true, he never would have been able to look you in the eye sitting at that piano."

"Absolutely. Absolutely," Gaga concurred, because he did, nailing the final nail in that coffin.
