People magazine may have named actor Bradley Cooper their sexiest man alive for 2011, but what does the fresh-faced cutie look like now?
For his role in a new stage production of Bernard Pomerance’s 1977 play, The Elephant Man, Bradley plays Joseph Merrick — an individual who is plagued by shocking deformities — and Bradley has become so dedicated to the role that he doesn’t even look like himself.
In the picture above, Bradley is shown shirtless, grabbing a cane as his face and limbs are contorted in many different directions. Talk about a transformation!
The Elephant Man is currently playing through August 5 at the Williamstown Theater Festival.
