BRADLEY Cooper was shocked to find he had to follow a strict exercise and diet program for his role in the movie remake of the classic A-Team TV series.
The actor — who is currently dating Bridget Jones’s Diary star Renee Zellweger – plays Templeton “Face” Peck in the flick, which is due to hit theaters in June next year.
And Cooper admits he’s had a tough time getting himself into shape.
“I have been on this crazy getting-in-shape regimen,” he said. “It was a real shock to the system. No salt or sugar.
“I just eat what they put in front of me, but it’s a lot of like boiled chicken, and brown rice, and broccoli.”
Cooper, 34, recently admitted that he’s a hopeless romantic.
“The truth is, I got it first from my parents, who’ve been married since 1963. I got it from them and from my grandparents, who are still together,” he said.
“I grew up in a very old-fashioned Roman Catholic, Italian-Irish family in Philly. Now my parents have evolved into completely different creatures, in terms of their marriage and the roles of the man and the woman.
“And I think that’s great, but it’s still romantic.”
