If you were too preoccupied by the summer sun or Instagramming drinkable coconuts when American Hustle hit cinemas in December, here’s something that'll get you watching the Oscar-nominated film. We got our hands on a behind-the-scenes clip of Mr Bradley Cooper discussing the headline-garnering movie, revealing how he transformed his usually charming self into an unstable-at-best FBI agent with an insatiable thirst for hair gel. Watch the Hollywood heavyweight chat candidly below, and before you ask, yes, he’s still with Suki.

American Hustle is out on Blu-ray, DVD and digital now.
