The Baby In “American Sniper” Is The Fakest Baby In Movie History

Straight from Toys “R” Us.

1. American Sniper cost about $60 million to make, but it appears only about $20 of that went to the prop that played Bradley Cooper’s character’s baby, which people have noticed is just a straight-up plastic doll.

3. Though the film is poised to be the biggest hit of director Clint Eastwood’s career, shattering box office records by earning over $105 million over MLK weekend, moviegoers found the plastic doll to be a bit of a distraction.

5. The fake-as-hell doll has been described as “creepy,” “plastic,” and a “robot.” Here’s Cooper even making the baby’s hand move. So bootleg.

7. In defense of the toy, screenwriter Jason Hall tweeted (and later deleted) that the real baby “showed up with a fever” and that the backup “was a no show.”

9. While the movie’s treatment of military sniper Chris Kyle may be particularly polarizing, the fake baby has certainly brought people back together.

If that fake baby from American Sniper doesn't get a Best Supporting Fake Baby nom, I will be outraged.

I don't get all the American Sniper love. But I do understand Bradley Cooper's nom.He had to hold that fake baby and not laugh.That's skill!
