Christian Bale Steals Art, Robert De Niro's Accent, and Dances with Jennifer Lawrence in First American Hustle Trailer
by Julie Miller
Contrary to what the first image from American Hustle told us yesterday, the star of the upcoming David O. Russell drama is not Bradley Cooper's immaculate tight curls. (Although they do get an intimate scene with the hundreds of tiny pink sponge rollers we previously mentioned.) Judging by the trailer, available below, the true star of the film is Christian Bale, a Bronx con man who sounds like Robert De Niro, specializes in stolen art, and is two-timing his loose-cannon wife (Jennifer Lawrence) with the most subtly coiffed woman in the entire movie (Amy Adams)—until, it appears, she gets her hands on Cooper's rollers.
