Never has plagiarism been so…hot.
“The Words,” which made its debut earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival, stars Bradley Cooper as a frustrated writer who stumbles upon a long-lost manuscript and publishes it as his own, earning raves as the literary world’s next big thing. And, as part of our continuing, week-long look at the movies we’re excited about this fall, MTV News had gotten its hand on an exclusive clip from the literary thriller.
Warning: You might need to use the nearest novel to fan yourself off.
The beautiful Zoe Saldana plays Cooper’s love interest in the film, and let’s just say she’s more distraction than muse as the writer attempts to put the finishing touches on “his” manuscript. (But really, who could blame her? Or him?)

“The Words,” also starring Jeremy Irons, Olivia Wilde and Dennis Quaid, hits theaters September 7.
