Hollywood’s blue-eyed boy Bradley Cooper, 36, is happy with positive initial reviews of The Hangover: Part II — the much-awaited sequel to the highly successful movie The Hangover.
“It feels awesome. When I think of The Hangover, I only think of the second one as it was an indelible experience. Also because the love for everybody was so palpable in the second one; I really love Ed and I really love Zach and I really love Todd,” adds the actor, who reprises his role as school teacher Phil Wenneck in the second outing.
“I am looking forward (to audiences) watching us back together again,” says Cooper.
The action shifts from Las Vegas to Bangkok for Ed Helms’ character Stu’s pre-wedding brunch. The area’s tropical heat got onto Cooper’s nerves.
“We were halfway across the world; it wasn’t like Vegas, it was friggin’ Bangkok,” he says. “It was intense. And it was the hardest shoot that I had ever done, that Zach had ever done, that Ed had ever done and that Todd had ever done… and for the crew it was quite a journey,” he adds.
So, can viewers expect a third installment to Hangover? “It would be great to end it in a trilogy, this time with Alan’s (Zach Galifianaki’s character) wedding! How does that sound,” says the actor, who is confident Indian audiences are “sure to love” the sequel.
The actor was also all praises for the director Todd Phillips. “When you work with Todd you really do not need to prepare. He manages to bring out the best from me,” he says.
Cooper doesn’t mind acting in Bollywood.
“I would have to learn to dance for that,” he says, adding, “I guess Bollywood is the only medium which brings out the blend of acting, songs and dance so beautifully.”
He doesn’t rule out an Indian sojourn too.
“Oh yes...I’d love to come there for fun and visit some marvelous monuments,” says the actor, who’d love to gorge on kebabs because they are “easier to pronounce and I am sure yummy to eat”.
Cooper, has off late, also been a part of constant rumours, gossips and link-ups both pesonally or professionally but it “doesn’t matter to me,” says the actor.
As for future projects, Cooper says he “would love to stick to acting” while other aspects of filmaking like “direction is too far a thought”.
