Leonard Bernstein’s Family Shares Statement Approving Bradley Cooper’s Prosthetic Nose In Maestro

Bradley Cooper co-wrote, directed, and stars in the new Leonard Bernstein biopic Maestro. Cooper is not Jewish, and in the film’s trailer he can be seen wearing a prominent prosthetic nose, which led to allegations that Cooper was performing in “Jewface” upon the trailer’s release Tuesday. Now Bernstein’s children have issued a statement defending Cooper. “It happens to be true that Leonard Bernstein had a nice, big nose,” they write. “Bradley chose to use makeup to amplify his resemblance, and we’re perfectly fine with that.”
