Bradley Cooper proves Louis C.K. wrong thanks to Reddit

Bradley Cooper proves Louis C.K. wrong. Louie mocked aspiring actors who ask questions on "The Actors Studio" when being questioned by Stephen Merchant on his television program. According to Salon on Mar. 20, Cooper got the last laugh thanks to Reddit.

Now one Redditor has put all of that together in one sugary mashup for the Internet’s immediate consumption, following the beautiful irony to its logical conclusion: C.K. getting his comeuppance years later, in a scene from “American Hustle.”

Fifteen years ago a young and aspiring Bradley Cooper asked a question of Sean Penn on an episode of "Inside the Actors Studio." Flash forward to 2008 when Louis C.K. tells Merchant that actors who ask, "'Sean Penn or whoever' for advice will 'never be famous."

The video mashup finishes with a scene from the 2013 film "American Hustle" where Bradley Cooper jumps on and makes fun of Louis C.K. brining this full circle. This not only proves Louis C.K. wrong, but also confirms that something just did not happen unless it happened on Reddit first.

Cooper is also best known for 2012's "Silver Linings Playbook" and has been nominated for two Academy Awards. In addition to his own HBO hit television series "Louis," Mr. C.K. has been showing up in films recently including Woody Allen's "Blue Jasmine" and the aforementioned "Hustle."
