Oh man! We had FORGOTTEN about this!
Way back in the day, when Bradley Cooper was starting out as an actor, one of his first big roles came as an arrogant camp counselor alongside Amy Poehler in the HIGHlarious Wet Hot American Summer, in which he had quite the sex scene with his MALE co-star Michael Ian Black!
The actor must have as many fond memories filming the sequence as we had WATCHING it, because he recently opened up about some of the on-the-fly, ahem, 'creative' choices,' he made right before the big moment!
“I remember saying, 'What if we wear tube socks, and I'll go up on the wall, and you'll come from behind me.' And I said in the scene, 'Say my name,' and Michael says, 'Ben!' And I say, 'No! Say my Christian name,' and he whispers, 'Benjamin,' and that's when I came.”
Just for nostalgia's sake - and not because it's actually kind of HAWT - check out the scene (above)!
Pretty ballsy of him, especially at that stage in the career! We're impressed…in more ways than one!
We think you should do more roles like this, boy! You know, to challenge yourself as an actor!
P.S. Keep an eye out for a young Elizabeth Banks in the water at the beginning of the clip! EVERYONE was in this movie!
