BRADLEY Cooper and Christian Bale played a funny gag on the costar Jennifer Lawrence while they were filming their still-untitled movie in Boston.
The trio were shooting scenes in a cemetery when the joke took place.
“They were planning to shoot a night scene in an old Boston cemetery when Jennifer, who’s usually up for anything, told the director and her male costars, Bradley and Christian Bale, that she was feeling uneasy and scared.
“She insisted she must never be left alone during the shoot – and asked that they film as fast as possible, then get the hell out. Everyone agreed, and her costars tried to calm her down.
“What Jennifer didn’t know was that Bradley and Bale got the prop guys to carve a fake tombstone — then plant it right where they’d be filming.
“So on the night, under pale moonlight, Oscar winner Jen suppressed a shiver as the director yelled, ‘ACTION!”…but bravely stepped into the ancient graveyard – and screamed as she spotted a gravestone that read: “JENNIFER LAWRENCE, born August 15, 1890. Died April 1, 1913.”
“Shaking in terror, Jennifer shrieked, ‘That’s MY name!…Is this just a coincidence, or am I going to die!’
“Laughing their fool heads off, the jolly jokesters chilled Jen by pointing out that the tombstone date of her ‘expiration’ was APRIL 1… ‘That’s April Fool’s Day, dummy,’ howled the guys.”
