>> it's my wedding.
>> stop it! stop it! stop it!
>> i can't watch a video now? it's all in my head. jooch best movie of the year, bradley cooper is with me here and i really mean it. not just philly . i have never seen a more heartwarming movie about what humans can do together and how families with work things out and life can be unbelievable. where did you hear this story first?
>> matthew quick, the guy who wrote the novel and sid nou pollack not the rights to it.
>> the great sydney pollack .
>> and gave it to david
>>> bru it's just a personal movie. and then when we all came around him, it became personal for all of us.
>> it's even about the super bowl . and really believing that you can do something in the householding napkins or whatever, holding rags that are green. i saw those people down at the super bowl , the eagles, the fans down there when they're all painted in green, staying up all night in buss. this obsession with football and how it becomes your life, it's a part of that movie.
>> yeah, it's a part of my childhood.
>> and sitting there watching games with him.
>> that's right.
>> and the mother making that special food. what was the food she made?
>> crabby snakes and homemades.
>> let's talk about your dad --
>> first of all, it's an honor to be on here.
>> he got ahold of robert deniro and insisted that he do philly right. all the philly talk. he insisted that deniro, one of the great actors of all time, get it right.
>> yeah, and bob really is --
>> did you like being able to call robert deniro bob?
>> yeah, i thi i said dad a hundred times in this film.
>> did he become a father figure?
>> yeah, of course, i mean, yeah.
>> four people in this movie, actor, best supporting actor , all four nominated for an academy award .
>> yeah, first time in 31 years.
>> let's talk about jennifer. i think, and my friend, gary ross , did a director in hunger games, the greatest female actor
of our generation: i thought it was my cousin, terry, theresa.
>> this is a girl from kentucky.
>> how did she figure out what it was.
>> i think she's a sponge and one of those people who effortlessly exudes this talent and so dexterous comedically. this character is the closest to her.
>> but her attitude.
>> yes, it's her attitude.
>> it's so real.
>> she's unbelievable, chris. i don't understand.
>> this is philly . let me ask you about mental illness. we're talking about it with all kinds of things and bipolar, we know about autism and things more than we frl did. the sense that things doents get better. i remember a movie years ago, david and lisa , and the relationship worked.
>> yeah. that they found -- the relationship did something that all the doctors in the world could do. your character is this hope that even if you got problems, really severe emotional problems, that you can solve them with the right people around you.
>> that's the whole point. and tiffany serves as the catalyst for that. and that's the thing that this film has done. you know, i've gone around the country and people are talking about how i actually feel like this film sees who i am.
>> it's a condition if you liken it to cancer, it's stage four. so hopefully, it will come in the onset.
>> let eegs come back and look at some pictures for this onset. bradley cooper is going to join us again. he's going to stay around for the second segment. we never do this. you're watching "hardball" the place for politics.
