The master manipulator, Bradley Cooper is at it again. This time, the 40 years old dazzles almost nude in a shoot for W magazine. The American Hustle actor was seen holding a pair of pants as he posed for the posed nude for the February 2015 “Movie Issue” of W Magazine while also using a cream coloured suit to cover his member.
For his February cover, the Guardians of the Galaxy actor wears the high-waisted pants with a pair of matching suspenders, although he is shirtless. Cooper wears his brunette curls slicked back and faces away from the camera, while showing off his well toned body.
Cooper joins the list of stars including Keira Knightley, Emma Stone and Scarlett Johannson that featured in the spread in the W’ magazine which highlights the best performances in movies roles for the 2015 awards season, catering each photo toward the individual’s standout role. It was photographed by Tim Walker for W magazine. Bradley Cooper was honored for his work in the upcoming drama, American Sniper.
He “was influenced by the colorful, sun-drenched Los Angeles paintings and photographs of David Hockney, as well as the ’70s free-love aesthetic that informs the artist’s work. From there, the photographic scenarios took cues from Federico Fellini and, naturally, Walker’s own unique perspective,” the mag explained of the tone of the snaps.
Cooper’s poses was made sure to concentrate on his immaculate structure. “All the actors and actresses were excited to play, to be transformed, to embrace personae that were extreme, odd, and truly fascinating,” W continued.
Although the movie, “American Sniper” which had Bradley star as former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who has the most recorded confirmed kills in the history of the U.S. military, hit limited theatres on Christmas day, it will be available nationwide on the 23th of january.
Cooper has admitted in the past that he wasn’t always so confident in his looks. “I was pretty as a child and I felt that I wasn’t very manly and that plagued me for years,” the now-hunky actor told British GQ in 2011. “Not good-looking, but pretty in the wrong ways; in my mind I looked like a girl.”
