In a dispute over his biography of the famous composer, actor Bradley Cooper has received support from Leonard Bernstein’s family. This week saw the debut of the Maestro trailer, which Cooper directs as well as appears in.
Bradley Cooper’s large nose drew considerable criticism, which some users of the social media claimed played into unpleasant stereotypes about Jews. Cooper’s use of makeup to “amplify” his look, however, was absolutely fine with Bernstein’s family, according to them. The lack of a Jewish performer in the role of the A Musical Toast composer has also drawn criticism. Jamie, Nina, and Alexander Bernstein have published a statement saying that it saddens them to see Bradley Cooper’s efforts being misunderstood and misinterpreted.
