Los Angeles: Bradley Cooper is depressed as he has gained weight after he followed gruelling fitness regime and adopted a strict diet to achieve the buff physique for his latest action movie ‘A-Team’.

The 35-year-old who plays Templeton Faceman Peck in the movie admits he let himself go once the movie was complete and he began piling on the pounds by indulging in his favourite junk food diet, reports

"I shrunk back down two weeks after we finished shooting. It was depressing. Before that, I spent much longer brushing my teeth (to look at myself in the mirror)," Cooper said.

"I was craving pizza so badly that the night we finished shooting I ate two arugula and prosciutto pies and a plate of ice cream with trail mix on top of it. And I did it again the next night," he added.
