Bradley Cooper went all in for his character in David O’ Russell’s latest film American Hustle … even rocking a jheri curl. HipHollywood sat down with Cooper to talk about his role as real life FBI agent Richie DiMasso and his curly locks.
“It was my idea” admitted Cooper. “But then it got expanded upon by David as to why and the process … It’s not a perm. We did it everyday and it 3 took hours.”
But Cooper isn’t the only one who had transform his look for the role and sport some seriously bad hair. Jeremy Renner let us in on his characters Liberace inspired hair, as did Christian Bale, who rocked an awful comb over in the film.
“I don’t think I’ve ever spent so much time discussing hair, doing hair,” explained Renner who played NJ Mayor Carmine Polito in the film. “But it was a wonderful place to explore new feelings, emotions and themes and behaviors for me as an actor. It was a huge departure from so many of the things I’ve done.”
Bale, who plays con man Irving Rosenfield, also gained 40 lbs for his role. Check out how he says he packed on the pounds, and what Amy Adams felt about her sexy characters revealing wardrobe.
American Hustle is in theaters December 20th.
