BRADLEY COOPER GETS MACHO-SHAMED BY STEELY-EYED MOVIE BOSS EASTWOOD!
Directing his new “American Sniper” flick, CLINT EASTWOOD scored snickers galore when he suddenly started calling star BRADLEY COOPER – who plays a hard-as-nails Navy SEAL – two adorable pet names: “Her Highness”...and “The Duchess!”
Said my on-set source: “It started because Clint thinks Cooper takes too damn long in the makeup chair.
And lately, whenever he needs Bradley and co-star SIENNA MILLER, he yells, ‘ARE THE GIRLS READY?’ Clint’s rightly proud of his rep for getting most scenes in just one take – but when action sequences with mud-crawling and fence climbing involving ‘The Duchess’ require retakes, Clint jeers, ‘Are you ladies ready to try that again?’ He loves teasing that his star’s just not macho enough.
"Even though the pet names are hilarious, Bradley can’t stand it – but...it’s Clint Eastwood – so he keeps his mouth shut and does what he’s told!”
