Bradley Cooper shaved off his facial hair for the titular role in “The Elephant Man” on Broadway, and it turns out he looks more like Ralph Fiennes than ever before.
This is one of those things you didn’t know you needed in your life until you did. Bradley Cooper has been roaming the world sans scruff of late, and he’s almost unrecognizable! It turns the guy doesn’t even need a disguise to avoid recognition; he just needs a good shave.
How to look like a total badass like Bradley Cooper
The 39-year-old American Sniper actor shed the sexy scruff for his role as the title character in “The Elephant Man,” which previewed on Broadway on Thursday. Now, not only does Cooper look at least 10 years younger without the face grass, but it turns out that — under the thick layer of beard — the actor looks a lot like Ralph Fiennes.
OK, they might not look like twins, but brothers at least. They could probably be used interchangeably in movies, with Fiennes playing Cooper’s British characters. Of course, the comparison between the two actors has been drawn before, but as Cooper ages (and now without the beard), the parallel is just undeniable. If Fiennes ever bulks up and puts on some muscle, we probably won’t even be able to tell them apart.
If you want to be dazzled by the similarities of the two actors, then feel free to check out Cooper on Broadway and marvel at his appearance. Seriously, if you’re in New York City, check it out. “The Elephant Man” officially opens on Dec. 7 and will run until Feb. 15. What do you think of the resemblance?
