Bradley Cooper loved his struggle in kitchen world in film ‘Burnt’

UNTITLED JOHN WELLS PROJECT12072631_10153744930486171_966435178757723174_nActor Bradley Cooper, who worked in several restaurants before hitting showbiz, says he learned a lot about the culinary world through a hard way, but loved every moment of it.

“I worked in kitchens and I was a busboy in a Greek restaurant when I was 15 and I was a prep cook in another restaurant when I was 18 for three months, where I was literally prepping all day long, the lowest in the totem pole of the brigade.

“I felt like it was very hard, but I learned a lot and I felt the pain of being berated by the chef and I saw the hierarchy and the stress and the pressure. But I actually did thrive there and I loved it,” Cooper said in a statement.

In his forthcoming film “Burnt”, Cooper plays the role of Adam Jones, a chef who destroys his career with drugs and his high-handedness. In the John Wells directorial, his character cleans up and returns to London, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars.

The “American Sniper” added that he respects all the chefs in the world.

“Whether I could have gone to the level that these characters are at and the people that I interviewed, god knows? The kind of dedication and talent that a Marco Pierre White or a Marcus Wareing or a Gordon Ramsay or Clare Smyth have is extraordinary. They are at the Michael Jordan level of cooking,” he said.

“Burnt” also stars Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, Uma Thurman and Jamie Dornan. It released in India on Friday.
