Bradley Cooper denies Lance Armstrong role
BRADLEY Cooper claims the rumour he wants to play shamed cyclist Lance Armstrong is “nuts”, despite JJ Abrams saying he had reached out to the actor to star in his new film.
The ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actor was thought to be in discussions with filmmaker JJ Abrams to star in his biopic about the disgraced cyclist, but he strongly refuted the claims on Sunday night.
Speaking at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, a confused Bradley told Access Hollywood: “No… that’s so nuts. I was in Manchester, doing the BBC morning show… I had no idea what [the interviewer] was talking about.
“I didn’t even know that JJ has the rights, I had no idea.” BANG!
