Nightmare Alley: Bradley Cooper on the Heaving Feeling of Filming Nude Scenes

Bradley Cooper admitted that filming full-frontal nude sequences in his upcoming film ‘Nightmare Alley,’ directed by famed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, was “quite heavy.” According to, the 47-year-old actor, who plays an ambitious carnival worker, recounted how he had to remove his costume on camera in an intimate encounter with Toni Collette’s character in a bathtub.

Cooper told ‘The Business’: “I remember reading in the script and thinking, he’s a pickled punk in that bathtub and it’s to story. You have to do it. I can still remember that day just to be naked in front of the crew for six hours, and it was Toni Collette’s first day. It was just like, ‘Whoa’. It was pretty heavy.”

The Hollywood star had no qualms about appearing in the nude during the making of the movie as he felt it was “demanded” to make the project a success. The ‘A Star Is Born‘ actor said: “The content of what the movie is, what we were exploring, in order to do it in a real way, it demanded that we’d be naked emotionally and soulfully.”

Bradley also explained the process of delving deep to give the best possible performance in the flick. He said: “It really is akin to putting on a miner’s kit, hat and flashlight, and looking at each other and then going down in the tunnel, knowing that you may be excavating a route that won’t ever get you to the end that day but you come back up and go down again the next day.”
