Bradley Cooper helicopters into Glastonbury ahead of Metallica set
Cooper said he was looking forward to watching Lana del Rey's festival debut
Hollywood star Bradley Cooper knows how to make an entrance in style.
While most festival-goers battled heavy rain and mud at Worthy Farm, the actor enjoyed the perks of being a film star and was helicoptered into Glastonbury accompanied by heavy metal band Metallica on Friday.
Cooper, who was nominated for an Oscar for his performance in this year's American Hustle, took take some selfies with some fans and told the BBC he was excited about Lana del Rey's performance, who made her Glastonbury debut earlier today, and Jack White.
Cigarette in hand, Del Rey belted out some of her hit songs, including her new single "West Coast", "Summertime Sadness", "Body Electric", "Born to Die", "National Anthem","Blue Jeans" as well as her breakthrough track, "Video Games", and "Young & Beautiful".

Del Rey, who released her third studio album Ultraviolence earlier this month, was recently forced to defend a series of comments in which she described her life as one "f***ed movie" and was quoted as saying "I wish I was dead already" in a controversial interview, which she later said she regretted doing.
Listing Kurt Cobain as one of her music heroes, the singer also appeared to glamorise the death of the Nirvana frontman, who took his own life at the age of 27, prompting a wave of criticism from fans and Cobain's daughter, Frances Bean, who tweeted "the death of young musicians isn’t something to romanticise".
