W Magazine’s Editor at Large Lynn Hirschberg has a knack for pulling out the most memorable moments from celebrities across all corners of show business. In the publication’s February “Movie” issue, Ms. Hirschberg worked with a handful of notable film stars who need no introduction. In addition to the six covers starring the likes of Carey Mulligan and Rooney Mara, the magazine also includes another 34-page portfolio highlighting the year’s breakthrough performers from Amy Schumer and Seth Rogen to Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie.
In conjunction with the release, Ms. Hirschberg also sat down with each of the stars for another installment of the Screen Tests video series, the best of which stars Bradley Cooper recalling his most memorable birthday. While we doubt the leading man included any fast food in his 41st birthday celebration yesterday, he remembers his best birthday taking place at McDonalds on the way to The Jersey Shore where he ate an Egg McMuffin. “Every kid would have a little party box that you would eat all of your stuff in,” he says in the video. “You were not expecting that answer. I don’t know what it says that I had to go back to 8-years-old to tell you my favorite birthday!” Watch the full video here.
