The Hangover Part III star Bradley Cooper is set to get cooking lessons from celebrity chef Gordan Ramsay for his upcoming film, according to reports.

The 38-year-old star is hoping to learn some culinary tips from the 46-year-old TV kitchen expert for an upcoming role, in which he plays a drug-addict cook.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, a source said: "Gordon jumped at the chance to be involved in this. He has a lot of showbiz pals in Los Angeles through being mates with the Beckhams.

"So it was only a matter of time before he got involved in the movie business out there.

"Gordon's going to be giving Bradley a crash-course in cookery and teaching him some flash tricks like knife-work so Bradley looks like an experienced chef."

The insider also hinted that Ramsay may also star in the flick, adding: "He's used to being in front of the camera, so who knows? A cameo in Chef would be the perfect start if he wanted to dip his toe into acting."

Bradley will portray Parisian cook Adam Jones in John Wells' film, which follows the chef overcome a drug addiction in order to open a Michelin-star restaurant.
