Bradley Cooper On His Nightmare Alley Naked Scene
Recently, Bradley Cooper revealed inside details of shooting a nude scene for Guillermo del Toro, Nightmare Alley.
The actor recalled his experience. Nightmare Alley (2021) was a ‘big deal’ for Cooper. It was the first time where he did a naked scene on screen. Guillermo del Toro’s script demanded Cooper to show full-frontal nudity in a bath scene where he and Colette were making out.
Recalling the day he read the script the first time, Cooper, 47, recalled how he thought he had to do it while reading it.
Remembering the shooting day he further stated that he remembered how he stood naked in front of the crew for six hours, “it was very heavy,” he said. But he didn’t hesitate to do the scene as it was for the story and not gratuitous.
