Bradley Cooper Fantasized About (Being) the Soloflex Guy


Bradley Cooper talks to Details about his A-Team physique

“As the movie progressed, I got in increasingly better shape. There’s this one fight scene with Liam Neeson toward the end, where it’s, like, the apex of the work … I swear to God, it looked like my head was digitally superimposed onto someone else’s body. I was like, ‘This cannot be me—that’s the way I look?’ … ‘Cause as a kid I only fantasized about looking that way. Remember Soloflex commercials? That was huge when I was a kid. It was like, ‘I wanna be the Soloflex guy. Mom, can we get the Soloflex?’”

I wanted to be the Soloflex guy too. And I also wanted the Soloflex guy. Here's a refresher, and here.

Cooper better stop with that chit-chat. Mr. T might come after him for talking too gay.

  1. I'm more interested in this photo of Bradley hanging out with openly gay singer Chris Salvatore. Hmm.

  2. Yeah, I wonder how many straight guys asked their mommy for a Soloflex when they were a kid?

  3. I commend Towleroad for NOT posting a misleading headline to this story unlike some other blogs that took Journalism 101 from the Perez Hilton University. Others had negligently omitted the verb "to be" in their headlines just to get clicks.

  4. I'm glad BC is doing well. I remember seeing him first in Alias and was smitten.

  7. @Mike: That is clearly not the (same) famous actor Bradley Cooper in the photo with Chris Salvatore.

  8. @Crit: That is Bradley Cooper the actor. He and Chris are friends. How can you possibly not think that is Bradley? Just look at that nose. Compare the nose and teeth to any pic you'd like.

  9. "Mom, can we get a Soloflex?"

    When I was a boy I wanted to be a pro wrestler or a pilot...not the Soloflex guy.

    Boys usually want to BE something. The body, the muscles, the "look" is a given, purely ancillary. The normal boy thinks: "I want to BE James Bond or Batista." NOT: "I want to LOOK LIKE James Bond or Batista."

    Only girls and Gay little boys are self-conscious enough to care only about how they'll look when they grow up.

    Based on that distinction (and his dating Zellweger) I'd say Bradley just outed himself.

  10. @ MarkDC: Yes, you figured him all out now.
    Sorry girls of planet Earth, Bradley's been outed by us gaydar professionals using nothing but a fond childhood memory.
    We're that good!

  14. Leave Daniel Craig alone...he is gay friendly too...gays need straights in
    their corner...

  15. Bradley's about 35. I wonder which Soloflex guy he was impressed by.

  16. @markdc, What you just "outed" is the fact that you're an angry, repressed, retro-faggot w/zero sense of humor and in serious need of a good shrink and a packet of mood stabilizing meds!
