Adams: Cooper's all-consuming curls

Amy Adams has revealed Bradley Cooper's beauty routine on American Hustle was more time-consuming than hers.

The Oscar-nominated actress admitted that her co-star underwent the painstaking process of having his hair curled each day he was needed on set, for his portrayal of FBI agent Richie DiMaso in David O Russell's upcoming crime drama.

"Bradley Cooper did not wear a wig, nor did he have a perm. He came in every morning and had tight pink curlers put in his hair, so no matter what time of day I had to arrive on set, it seemed like Bradley was always in his pink perm rollers under the heater," she told Vanity Fair.

Amy said Christian Bale, who plays conman Irving Rosenfeld, would also spend quite a while getting his look right.

"Typically, as a female, you arrive on set and you are by yourself in the make-up trailer for a while but Bradley and Christian were both there the majority of the time I was in the hair and make-up trailer. It was nice to have that company," she added.

The 39-year-old lost weight and had a tan to portray Irving's partner in crime and mistress Sydney Prosser.

"(I had a) hungry and tan look. That's terrifying. It's amazing what a tan can do. Because I'm not tan, so that was fun to play with," she said.

She also revealed how she still gets mistaken for fellow red-headed beauty Isla Fisher.

"I get Isla Fisher all the time still. I know Isla and for a while, our kids went to the same dance school. When I'm with Isla, we both look at one another and I get it, but I also don't get it. But I tell her, it could be a lot worse," she joked.
