London: Bradley Cooper and Paul Rudd were surprised to have bagged Broadway roles alongside Julia Roberts because they felt they weren’t orthodox actors.

The pair worked with the beauty on the 2006 New York production of Richard Greenberg`s Three Days of Rain.

The duo believes their career progressed after starring in cult comedy ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ in their early days in the film industry.

"We would sit around laughing saying if we had had a crystal ball when we were shooting Wet Hot American Summer and it had told us we were going to be the two guys opposite Julia Roberts in a play, we would have thought that was crazy,” the Daily Express quoted Cooper, as telling Details magazine.

He added: "Movie stars used to be dashing, masculine, and mysterious and we`re the kind of guys that laugh at our own farts."
