Louis C.K. Was Wrong, and Bradley Cooper Is Here to Rub His Nose in It

Louis C.K. tends to be right about most things, but at least one time he was dead wrong.

In a 2008 interview with Stephen Merchant, C.K. had a laugh at the expense of the hopeful students of Inside the Actors Studio, who ask actors like Sean Penn how to become successful movie stars. That guy will never make it, C.K. says. But as YouTube user GAabriel Antunes perfectly highlights with this video, C.K. was more wrong than he ever could have realized. That student got the last laugh.
