Obsessed with Bradley Cooper

Obsession was on the minds of Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper at the "All About Steve" premiere Wednesday night in Hollywood. Bullock plays a woman who's obsessed by Cooper's character, a camerman (or photographer, as they preferred to be called) for the fictional TV news organization "CCN." Hmmm... what could that be modeled after?

But don't call her character's fixation creepy, says Bullock: “[She’s] not creepy - don't pass judgment - don't put the word creepy out there. She's annoying at the beginning, but at the end you [the audience] turn around and blame yourself for passing judgment . She was innocent and real rather than jaded and guarded and cool. She's just incredibly smart and kind.”

And why is she so obsessed? “All cameramen are hot. Like the one behind this one right now. If I wasn’t with my husband, whew!" she jokes. "Cameramen are like firemen – all have a level of hotness.” That brought a smile to the man behind the lens for our interview, Chris Audick.

Cooper is learning more and more about obsession these days, as in America's obsession with celebrity gossip.  His dating exploits (Jennifer Aniston and Renee Zellweger are among the ladies with whom he's been linked) are being read about in super market check-out aisles around the country. “I don't read it," he says, "But I get emails from friends saying 'Whoa! Man, what the hell is happening?' And they all talk like that [does frat-boy voice] 'Hey man!'" So you take it with a grain of salt? "Oh yeah!”

    I have to admit that I am one of those that was recently obsessed with Bradley Cooper. But now it's just kind of annoying. And the only reason that I put him on that hot scale is because of the way they styled his hair and he had that five o clock shadow.
    Because other than that I never thought too much about the actor who I'd seen in a few other flicks. His make-up artist for the movie needs to get all the credit. He still looks good at times but when I look at other photos of him after the movie I get disappointed half of the time.
    And as for Jennifer Aniston, its funny that she didn't care to date him during or after HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU. Or was he still married then?
    Anyhow, he seems to be lving it up with the ladies enjoying his new found fame. After Wedding Crashers nobody took a second look. Maybe it was because his character was such a prick, but still. Kudos to that make-up artist. He or she has earned their money!!!

    These women must have been in a coma or living in Antarctica for the last 10 years because he was one of the few men on this planet who could upstage Michael Vartan – and Mr. Cooper did just that every season of 'Alias'. Where was this newfound fan base when his chef sitcom went down the toilet................I guess some people can't succeed until they star in a vulgar R-rated movie. The fact that he couldn't stay married longer than a few months makes him seem like a narcissistic knucklehead; must be a pre-requisite for stardom.
