Bradley Cooper said that he came to the realization that he can’t cook while preparing for his new movie “Burnt”. He plays chef Adam Jones in the movie, but said that researching the role made him realize he can’t cook.
He said, “When I was a kid I would screw up cooking with my grandmother. It was an Italian family, so cooking was a huge part of it. Being around food is very soothing to me. My grandfather had a garlic business. I grew up with that environment, and it reminds me of my childhood. I actually learned how much I can’t cook by doing this film.”
He said that he didn’t get a whole lot of time to study for the part, but spent a month coming to grips with the character. He said that his previous experience working in restaurants actually paid off, too.
He added, “I didn’t have as much time to prep, but I was able to spend a month living and breathing it. The thing that really paid off was the fact that I’d been doing research since I was a kid, working in restaurants.”
