    In a recent episode of ‘The Graham Norton Show‘, Bradley Cooper and Carey Mulligan shared generous laughs while sharing their first encounter. Cooper said, “She was doing a play in the West Village of Manhattan, and I went to the first preview, which is sacrilege. It was a one-woman show, and she came out and the key light was on her, and she looked just like Felicia, who’s Lenny’s wife… so I went to meet her backstage.

    Carey Mulligan continued by saying that during her 90-minute monologue, the actress was hit on the head by the studio’s prop. However, the pain went unnoticed because she was indulged in her role. However, when Cooper went backstage he noticed Mulligan’s breakdown and said, “You’re not all right!’ And it was like, get in the car, went to the emergency room. The nurse was delighted.” Mulligan joked saying, “It got me a job, so totally worth it.”
