Adams gave Cooper black eye on set

Amy Adams has admitted she gave her American Hustle co-star Bradley Cooper a black eye during filming.

The Oscar-nominated actress said that action scenes got a little violent while shooting the crime drama where she plays a con woman working for Bradley's FBI agent character.

She told Interview Germany magazine: "Lashing out at an esteemed colleague is not exactly a hobby of mine. Bradley literally begged me to continue.

"In the end, he had a big black eye and I had a big bad conscience."

Amy won the Golden Globe for Best Actress for her performance in American Hustle in January and is nominated in the same category at the Oscars.

At the weekend she lost out on the Bafta for Best Actress to Cate Blanchett, for her performance in Blue Jasmine.
