Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller cooked up a storm at the New York premiere of their latest movie, "Burnt" -- where the "American Sniper" co-stars reunite to play formidable chefs in the culinary comedy-drama. Cooper is a troubled chef who lost his Michelin-star restaurant in Paris, seeking a second chance with the help of seasoned sous-chef Helene, played by Miller. Cooper said that experience was the secret ingredient to a successful portrayal. SOUNDBITE Actor, Bradley Cooper, saying (English): " At 18 I was a prep cook in between high school and college in Somers Point, New Jersey at a seafood Italian restaurant. And I remember the chef was 21, he had just come back from France where he had studied and had all these ideas and was a little bit like Adam in that way. I was at the bottom of the hierarchy at that point so you definitely bear the brunt of everybody's frustration. So it was something that I felt comfortable with. In the kitchen I feel very comfortable so that was a great thing. I think it helped." Meanwhile Miller went through intensive training to cook up her character. SOUNDBITE Actress, Sienna Miller, saying (English): "I worked really hard with two Michelin star chef Marcus Wareing in London and I studied chefs. I watched services in many different kitchens, I interviewed different women and men who work in those kind of kitchens and watched how they moved and I really wanted to immerse myself in it which wasn't hard because I love this. I love food, I love cooking." "Burnt" opens in cinemas worldwide from Thursday.
