Bradley Cooper’s twisting noir thriller Nightmare alley includes a full frontal nude scene, which the Oscar-nominated star describes as “a big problem” for him.
Directed by Mexican maestro Guillermo del Toro (The form of water), the sequence itself is built around his character Stan Carlisle’s sexual encounter with Toni Collette’s Zeena Krumbein.
Join podcast The business with Kim Masters, Cooper recalls: “I remember reading the script and thinking, he’s a picky punk in that bath and it’s for story. You have to do it.
“I can still remember that day just being naked in front of the crew for six hours, and it was Toni Collette’s first day. It was just like ‘Whoa’. It was quite heavy.”
However, he never drifted away to retreat, “because there was nothing in vain about it, it was up to the story”.
Further along, the Drop pizza actor went on to discuss his special collaboration with del Toro and remarked: “It’s really similar to putting on a mining set, hat and flashlight, and looking at each other and then going down the tunnel, knowing that you perhaps a route that will never end you that day, but you will come up again and go down again the next day. “
The duo is now bound forever and catching up daily because the content of what the movie is, what we explored, to do it the right way, required us to be emotionally and soulfully naked. ”
