The Margin: Bradley Cooper is not a Republican — cue the outrage

To those freaking out over Bradley Cooper’s appearance at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday: Movies aren’t real. They’re just movies. And the actors, no matter how convincing, may not have much in common with the characters they portray. That’s why they call it acting.

For instance, Julia Roberts isn’t a prostitute. Robert De Niro doesn’t drive a taxi for a living. Hugh Jackman doesn’t have retractable adamantium claws.

And Bradley Cooper isn’t a card-carrying member of the Republican Party.

Nevertheless, Cooper’s role in “American Sniper” apparently had some believing People’s onetime “sexiest man alive” might lean to the right like the staunch Republican depicted in the film.
