LOS ANGELES — The Internet has spoken and people are loving the six-time Oscar nominated movie “American Sniper,” just not the fake baby.

The baby that “plays” the child of the characters played by Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller is actually a doll.

A real baby is used in some of the nursery scenes, but when Cooper firsts picks up the child, it’s extremely still.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film was forced to use a fake baby for some scenes despite its $60 million budget because of the strict restrictions on employing babies.

The baby must be at least 15 days old and can only be filmed during certain hours of the day.
