How much did the Hollywood mindset interfere with presenting the actual facts regarding Chris' life?
Overall, a reverence and respect for Chris Kyle and even the military as a whole was apparent from the first day I started working on American Sniper. Everyone I met and worked with made a huge effort to portray Chris in a way they felt was consistent with Jason Hall’s (screenwriter) vision.

I started working with Jason on the script before Chris died, and it was immediately obvious to me that he was devoted to capturing the man that was Chris Kyle. He spent literally hundreds of hours on phone calls and doing research while completing the script. His passion for writing the script and bringing Chris and his SEAL brothers to the screen was contagious. It infected everyone else working on the movie and set the tone for the entire production. There’s no way to completely convey an entire lifetime in 2-1/2 hours of film, but I do believe the finished product reflects Chris’ commitment to his fellow SEALs and service members, his family and his faith. Bradley Cooper’s commitment to Chris Kyle was unparalleled. He studied hundreds of photographs and hours of video, met and spoke with Chris’ family, and physically transformed himself for the role. I worked closely with him during the entire filming process and know he felt personally invested in portraying Chris accurately. I can’t picture anyone else undertaking that role and mastering it to the degree that he did.
