Bradley Cooper is going down a storm in London as he treads the boards in his new play. The three-time Oscar nominee, who is currently starring in Elephant Man at the Haymarket theatre, was only too happy to stop for photos and autographs for the huge crowd as he left the theatre. The Hollywood heartthrob, who has been receiving rave reviews has brought the play to the West End after winning critical acclaim for his performance on Broadway. The 40-year-old star plays the famously deformed Merrick. But despite his devastating good looks the talented actor chose to portray the character by contorting his body rather than using prosthetics.
