Renowned actor, Bradley Cooper said,filming full-frontal nude scenes in Nightmare Alley” was pretty heavy.

Bradley Cooper stated that “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 47-year-old actor portrays the role of an ambitious carnival worker. He stated that it was tough for him to get into the character and perform intimate scenes. Cooper confessed that it was the demand of the character and he had no qualms appearing naked in front of the camera to make the project successful but it was his first time therefore it was a daunting experience for him.

Cooper stated “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.”

“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.”

He further quoted “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.”

 “We have been making ‘Nightmare Alley’ for the last two and a half years.

“It was a unique experience, going through the pandemic, taking six months off, and revisiting it. We not only became lifelong friends, but it was an artistic experience.”
