“American Sniper” co stars Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller reunite to cook up a storm in “Burnt” as formidable chefs in the culinary comedy-drama.
Cooper plays chef Adam Jones, whose drug use and hot temper lead him to lose his two Michelin star restaurant.
Bradley looks to get another opportunity in London and, with the assistance of talented sous chef Helene (Miller), he attempts to land his own new kitchen and a third Michelin star.
Speaking in the film’s premier on Tuesday night, Cooper said that his past work experience, starting at a Greek restaurant in the age of 15 cleaning tables, helped him in the job.
I had been at the base of the hierarchy at that point, so you undoubtedly bear the brunt of everybody’s frustration,” he said.
“In the kitchen I feel very comfortable so that was an excellent thing. I think that it helped because we’d no cooking doubles we did all the cooking, and it was an operating kitchen.”
Miller said she underwent intensive training for the character of Helene Sweeney.
“Miller watched services in a variety of kitchens, I interviewed different women and guys who work in those kind of kitchens and saw how they moved and I genuinely wanted to immerse myself in it.”
“Burnt” opens in cinemas globally from Thursday.
