Los Angeles, Jan 30: Actor Bradley Cooper has reportedly denied rumours that he is playing the role of Lance Armstrong on the big screen.
It was reported that director J.J. Abrams formally approached the 38-year-old to star in a biopic on cyclist Armstrong's rise and fall from grace.
However, Cooper strongly refuted the claims Sunday night during Screen Actors Guild Awards, reports contactmusic.com.
"No... Oh my God, that's so nuts. I was in Manchester, doing the BBC morning show... I had no idea what (the interviewer) was talking about. I didn't even know that J.J. has the rights, I had no idea," he told accesshollywood.com.
