It all began because Actor Michael Keaton wanted a new saddle for his horse.
It ended up becoming Actor Bradley Cooper’s problem!
Keaton appeared on the TV show “Late Night With Seth Meyers” last week, and he told the Host that he loves horses and has many on his Montana ranch.
Bradley Cooper’s “Horse Sense!”
Keaton ordered a custom handmade saddle, reaching out to a popular California Saddle named Cash Cooper.
As Keaton explained to Meyers: “I went to his shop and said ‘Let’s get started’ and then we would email back and forth.”
The Actor would send very specific details about the saddle specs that only a fellow horseman would understand.
“And he would respond and then there would be the gaps, and I wouldn’t hear from him,” Keaton told Meyers. “And I would go, ‘Hey, how are you doing? Just checking in. We were talking about the engraving down at the bottom. Just keep it simple.’ [And he would reply] ‘Yeah. OK. Ha!’ And I’m going, ‘OK… He’s enjoying this.’ And then I would not hear from him for a while.”
The back and forth went on a little while longer, Keaton becoming more concerned about the lack of care and interest the saddlemaker Cooper was expressing in the order. Well, it turns out he was emailing the wrong Cooper.
“I had been mistakingly emailing Bradley Cooper the whole time,” Keaton said. “And he was on the other end going ‘What the fuck is he even talking about?’ I thought it was hysterical. I emailed him back that it was so funny, and he goes, ‘Yeah, I was kind of rolling along with it, but I didn’t know what I was supposed to say. I thought it was a great gag, but I kind of ran out because you were getting really specific.’”

I love Michael Keaton, and can only imagine how I would have reacted to notes from him about the same thing!
