Londoners aren’t known for their jolliness, but the presence of Bradley Cooper has apparently struck a particularly angry chord.
The actor is in the capital filming Adam Jones – a film about an enfant terrible Michelin-starred chef – with Leicester Square as one of the locations.
But far from being pleased to see an aesthetically-pleasing Hollywood actor roam the streets, those who work in the area have reportedly found his appearance a massive inconvenience.
“People who go to work in the area have been complaining about producers telling them they can't walk in certain places as they keep re-shooting scenes of Bradley in the street,” a source was quoted by the Mirror as saying.
Cooper, it seems, has been quite the nuisance, having allegedly disrupted the daily routines of local workers - not that this has been confirmed anyone other than a "source".
"It's making people late for work and tempers have been lost," the source continued. "At first it was just exciting to have Bradley in the area. Now it's just a hassle."
So easy does it Cooper, please desist causing tardiness and the workers of Leicester Square may, if you’re fortunate, stop calling you a "hassle".
