Luckily for Bradley Cooper‘s career, he’s never given a performance this two-dimensional.
Since April, a woman named Danielle Davies has been lugging around a life-size cardboard cutout of the American Hustle star and documenting the results on Instagram. The images are frequently unsettling, and always hilarious.
In an interview with Today, Davies revealed that she once shared the stage with Cooper while the two were students at Villanova University.
Though her former costar has gone on to fame and fortune, Davies leads a quiet life with her husband and two children in New Jersey. She says she began lugging the cardboard cutout around out of a sense of patriotism.
“This is the land of the free and the brave, where all things can happen,” she explains on her website. “Especially if you make them happen.”
“If I want a life with Bradley Cooper, well, then I’ll just make one up.”
