This is Your Brain on Drugs
It's interesting how intelligence can make a person more attractive. For instance, I've never found Bradley Cooper even remotely handsome but all of a sudden he gets super smart and wham...he seems hot. Of course, it also may have something to do with the hair (after he bathes) and the suits, but brain power definitely ups the hot factor.
Witness the formerly rodent-faced dude transformed in front of your very eyes in this Limitless trailer. It's pretty self-explanatory; Cooper plays a sad sack, never-been-published author who gets hold of a new drug that powers up his brain to maximum capacity. As with any fairy tale, at some point the clock must strike twelve but it looks like Cooperella may suffer a fate worse than just reverting to his normal self. And I don't think prince De Niro is searching for his true love:
Based on The Dark Fields by Alan Glynn, Limitless is directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionist) and also stars Abbie Cornish, Johnny Whitworth and Anna Friel. The film hits theaters March 18, 2011 and may mark the first time I'd see a Bradley Cooper film.
