Cooper blames Bale for embarrassing audition

28 August 2009

Bradley Cooper claims he lost out on playing superhero Green Lantern in a new Hollywood blockbuster because of Christian Bale.

The Hangover star auditioned for the role of the DC comic book hero but lost out to Ryan Reynolds.

However, Cooper's blamed the snub on Christian Bale because he tried to copy the mannerisms he saw on The Dark Knight.

Cooper said, "I couldn't not to do Christian Bale's Batman when I was doing the audition. I don't know what it was. You put a mask on, and I actually said, 'I'm Batman'.

"When I walked back and saw (the playback) I thought, 'Oh my god!' I was like, 'Oh, I'm not getting this!'"
