"American Sniper" was life changing, Bradley Cooper stated Monday at the annual Oscar Nominees Luncheon in Beverly Hills. And he wasn't talking about the film's unbelivable box office success. Even though "American Sniper" is now the highest-grossing war movie of all time (recently beating out "Saving Private Ryan"), Cooper took a much more emotional approach when a room full of journalists asked him if he was surprised at how heated the discussion about the film has become.
"You never know when you make a movie if anybody’s going to see it. So to have the audacity to think that it would cause any sort of effect would be pretty presumptuous," Cooper said.
