'I shrunk back down two weeks after we finished shooting. It was depressing,' the depicter of Faceman in the action movie admits.
Actor Bradley Cooper suffered from a bout of depression after filming wrapped on the set of "The A-Team" because his toned muscle quickly turned into fat. The "The Hangover" star embarked on a grueling fitness regime and adopted a strict diet to achieve the buff physique he shows off as Templeton 'Faceman' Peck in the new movie adaptation of the hit TV series.
But Cooper admits he let himself go once the movie was complete, and he began piling on the pounds by indulging in his favorite junk foods. He tells People magazine, "I shrunk back down two weeks after we finished shooting. It was depressing. Before that, I spent much longer brushing my teeth (to look at myself in the mirror)."
"I was craving pizza so badly that the night we finished shooting I ate two arugula and prosciutto pies and a plate of Cherry Garcia ice cream with trail mix on top of it. And I did it again the next night."
