BY JIM KOURI
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

With his one act of kindness, the American Sniper star lashed back at the alleged pseudo-documentary maker Moore and the star of a movie that possibly lost more money than it made (The Interview), Rogen, several former military officers and non-commissioned officers, who later added the job of police officer to their resumes, said upon reading Rolling Stone magazine's arguably disgraceful movie review on Wednsday.

Actor Bradley Cooper visited the Brooke Army Medal Center in San Antonio, Texas, for a special preview of the film.for 260 wounded service members and medical staff at the hospital. Also visiting the men and women at the Veteran's Administration facility was Chris Kyle’s father, Wayne Kyle, with whom Cooper is now a close friends. According to those present, Cooper told the wounded warriors about his grueling physical training in order to gain more than 30-pounds of muscle and to reduce his body fat content for the movie. He also underwent the training program that Navy SEALs undergo just to qualify for the elite force.
