Bradley Cooper shows his support to a victim of Boston Marathon bombings.

Accompanied by New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, Cooper went to hospital to see Jeffrey Bauman Jr who lost both of his legs below the knee.

In a picture posted by Julian on his Twitter, Jeffrey was on his hospital bed, giving a thumb-up sign to the camera and holding a ball in his left hand, while Bradley and Julian were on the sides of his bed. Julian captioned the picture, “Visited #survivor #stud #hero Jeffrey Bauman Jr. today. He was looking great and is a true inspiration. #strong.”

He told E! News, “It was a very humbling experience. We talked a little football. I learned that he is a tough guy and has a very close strong family. He is a true inspiration.” He added, “I don’t want the focus to be on me. It was more for Jeff and his family.”

Although Jeffrey was severely injured, he gave a statement which led to suspect identification when he was in intensive care. Jeffrey’s brother Chris said that when Jeffrey woke up, he asked for a pen and a piece of paper. He wrote, “Bag, saw the guy, looked right at me.” The description of the man who dropped a bag near Jeffrey was similar to a suspect hunted by the authorities.

In other news, Boston Marathon bombings affected the filming of Bradley’s next project “American Hustle”. It was announced on Friday night that the production of the David O Russell-directed movie was postponed because of the manhunt of a suspect which made the authorities put the city on lockdown. Sony released a statement which read, “The production is heeding the Governor’s request ‘to remain indoors.’”

The movie team will continue filming after authorities lift their request that Bostonians stay off the streets.
