Bradley Cooper Visits Boston Marathon Bomb Survivor


Yes, it is possible to fall even more in love with Bradley Cooper.

As production on David O. Russell's "American Hustle" was forced to shut down today in response to the heightened alert situation in Boston - following Monday's horrific marathon bombing - the Oscar-nominated "Silver Linings Playbook" star decided to step out above Gov. Deval Patrick's city-wide shutdown order to pay a visit to one of the survivors, Jeff Bauman.

B.Coop was all-smiles as he paid Bauman a hospital bedside visit, and he returned the enthusiasm with a thumb up in a Twitter picture circulated by The Film Stage.

Filming for Russell's "Hustle" has reportedly been stop-and-go as a result of the week's tragic and frightening events, with production resuming briefly in Boston on Wednesday night after filming in the neighboring Worchester area for a few days.

"American Hustle" stars Cooper alongside Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Robert De Niro, Jeremy RennerJack HustonLouis C.K. and Michael Pena, and adapts the true story of a con artist pair who partnered with the FBI to expose a gaggle of corrupt politicians.

Assuming the production halt doesn't impact release plans, "American Hustle" will hit limited theaters on Dec. 13 and follow with wider release over the holidays.
