Cooper ‘trained at Burger King’

Bradley Cooper reportedly sought work experience at Burger King in order to prepare for his new movie, Adam Jones.

The 39-year-old Academy Award-nominated actor is currently preparing to portray a chef in his new movie Adam Jones.

And apparently he took on work experience Sunday night at the Leicester Square, London branch of an international fast food chain to study up for his part.

“Bradley was training alongside genuine Burger King staff,” a source told The Sun.

“The aim was to learn the ‘art of the flip’ which he nailed fairly quickly.”

Although Bradley is a huge celebrity, it is claimed employees at the restaurant treated him as one of their own.

The star is said to have blended in very nicely during his stay.

“There was no real fanfare from him. You’d never know he was a big star by the way he spoke to people,” the insider observed.

“He spent Sunday night learning the skills while the restaurant was open to the public and then filmed for most of the day on Monday.”

Bradley portrays the titular character in Adam Jones, a film centreing on a Parisian cook whose addiction to drugs threatens to derail his career before he cleans up his act to open a Michelin-star winning restaurant.

John Wells directs the picture which is currently filming, with principal photography having begun in New Orleans last week. Bradley is now shooting Adam Jones in London with his co-stars Uma Thurman, Jamie Dornan, Emma Thompson and Sienna Miller.
