Actor gets nose-job is today’s top music newsNews
The Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper has been attacked for performing in ‘Jewface’ when portraying Leonard Bernstein in a forthcoming biopic of the conductor.
Cooper, who is not Jewish, is seen wearing an enlarged nose in the film trailer while Mahler’s Adagietto surges down below.
Bernstein’s three children have been so upset by the criticism that they have issued several statements in supports of the actor: ‘It breaks our hearts to see any misrepresentations or misunderstandings of his efforts … Bradley chose to use makeup to amplify his resemblance, and we’re perfectly fine with that. We’re also certain that our dad would have been fine with it as well.’
No-one has yet mentioned how ridicullously slow that Adagietto is played. Lenny was relatively crisp.
