No amount of star power could ease Boston's suffering right now.

But a kindhearted hospital visit from Bradley Cooper and New England Patriots player Julian Edelman was a welcome distraction to Jeffrey Bauman Jr., who lost both legs in Monday's horrific marathon explosions.

In a photo tweeted by Edelman Thursday (see below), Bauman holds a football and gives a thumbs-up from his hospital bed. The NFL star and Cooper beam on either side of the survivor, along with an unidentified woman and uniformed man.

Visited #survivor #stud #hero Jeffrey Bauman Jr. today," the football hunk wrote. "He was looking great and is a true inspiration. #strong."

Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence were filming in Worcester, Mass., which is about 40 miles outside of Boston, when Monday's events took place. Their shooting schedule, however, was not disrupted.
