In the film, Cooper portrays Stanton Carlisle, a former carnival worker who becomes a nightclub star. He creates the impression of being a powerful mind reader and chases after millionaires.
Cooper made headlines after he and Russian model Irina Shayk split in 2019, after four years of being together.
The movie also stars award-winning actress Cate Blanchett. She will play Dr. Lilith Ritter, a psychiatrist who first attempts to expose Cooper's character as a fraud but eventually gets involved in his schemes.
While fans await Cooper's upcoming film, they continue to rave about the fact that the movie heartthrob has managed to maintain his handsome looks through the years.
Like the fans, some Hollywood personalities admitted to being smitten with the "American Sniper" actor. One of these A-listers was "Today" show co-host, Samantha Guthrie.

Guthrie shared to her "Today" colleagues about her experience sitting close to Cooper and another equally-dashing actor, Brad Pitt, as they watched the U.S. Open in New York City.
According to the 49-year-old broadcaster, she was keeping a cool head even though she was feeling starstruck sitting next to the two brilliant actors in the entertainment industry.
Despite his popularity among female celebrities, Cooper made headlines after he and Russian model Irina Shayk split in 2019, after four years of being together. They started dating in 2015.
In 2017, the couple welcomed their daughter, Lea. Despite their split, Shayk said she and Cooper were lucky to have experienced each other's love and that they had no regrets about parting ways.
