Justin Bartha Accuses Jill Martin of Texting, Obsessing Over Bradley Cooper in Awkward Interview

Um? Justin Bartha completely embarrassed Jill Martin during her interview with him at Sunday’s Knicks versus Cavaliers game and it was 100 percent awkward. The New York Minute host was interviewing the actor about the Oscars — but he turned the conversation to her obsession with his Hangover costar Bradley Cooper.

“My favorite movie — I haven’t seen all the movies because I just had a kid so I haven’t gotten out much — but I liked American Sniper a lot, my boy Bradley, he’s fantastic,” Bartha replied when first asked about which Oscar-nominated flicks he was rooting for.

Things then quickly devolved when the actor, who is dad to 10-month-old daughter Asa with wife Lia Smith, outed the sports reporter for her crush on Cooper.

“You’ve got to stop texting me about him, by the way,” Bartha abruptly told Martin. “You’ve got to stop with the texting about Bradley. I know he’s sexy but it’s enough already.”

An understandably uncomfortable Martin then interjected, “That’s not true,” before Bartha continued: “He has asked about you once and I shouldn’t have told you that because now you’re obsessed and you’re always asking me about Bradley.”justin bartha video

“I’m going to cut this off,” Martin then said. “I’m going to deflect this and ask about the Hangover trilogy, which I’m a huge fan of, is there a chance there could be a Hangover 4?”

“No, no chance,” Bartha said. “Maybe we could do something like me and you and we could get Bradley…” he then asked before Martin cut the interview off.
