Jeffrey Lurie Bradley Cooper | Bradley Cooper cheers on Eagles from owner Jeffrey Lurie’s box
Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie has a rather well known special guest in his owner’s box during Super Bowl LII.
Actor Bradley Cooper was hanging out in the owner’s box for the Super Bowl. In fact, he was seen cheering on the team after they scored a touchdown to take a 9-3 lead.
Cooper is from Philadelphia and a huge Eagles fan. He got a chance to become close to the team and some of its players when he filmed the 2012 movie “Silver Lining Playbook” in which he played an Eagles fan. His role in that movie actually caused a little controversy in the NFL at one point.
Jeffrey Lurie Trump | Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie reportedly called Trump’s presidency ‘disastrous’ in league meeting
It’s still unclear whether or not the Philadelphia Eagles will visit the White House. Talks are still ongoing between the Trump administration and the team, and numerous players that helped deliver the city its first Super Bowl have stated that they won’t attend if the team decides to go. A recent report from the New York Times introduces an element that could make the situation even more complicated.
In the report, the Times cites audio it obtained from a meeting between players, owners and other NFL personnel where Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie called Trump’s presidency “disastrous.”
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says the two sides hope to have a date finalized in the coming weeks. Players such as Malcolm Jenkins, Chris Long, and Torrey Smith have been vocal about not attending and have made their criticism of President Trump known.
The Eagles released a statement on Monday, saying they were still considering the invitation:
“We have been in contact with White House representatives and are currently discussing the logistics of an upcoming visit to Washington. We are honored to receive this invitation and view this not only as an opportunity to be recognized for our on-field accomplishments, but also as an opportunity to engage in productive dialogue with the leaders of our country.”
