On January 5, 2022, one of Hollywood’s most beautiful, sought-after, and highly paid actors turns 47 years old. Unfortunately, the future movie star fell ill as a child. But his journey to the big screen has been a long one.
On the birthday of the star of the films “Sniper,” “My Boyfriend is Crazy,” and other blockbusters, someone recalls rare facts about a celebrity.
Bradley Cooper received a good education. He studied well but did not differ in excellent behavior. Unfortunately, the actor fell into the trap of adolescence. Bradley was such a freak that now he remembers his antics with a shudder.
Cooper said that he turned his parents’ life into absolute hell. He also had a police record. Once, he was arrested for drinking alcohol in a public place; Bradley was only 15 years old.
By the way, after his father’s death, the actor’s mother, Gloria Cooper, lives with him constantly.
After moving from Philadelphia to New York, Cooper began indiscriminately attending all castings in a row. But he had to live on something, and he had to take on any job. So, he worked part-time in the Philadelphia Daily newspaper and as a doorman in a prestigious hotel.
Debut in a popular TV Series

One and unsuccessful marriage
In 2011, People magazine named the actor the most handsome man globally. So it’s no surprise that the talented, wealthy, and damn attractive Cooper has always had a crowd of female fans.
But he was married only once, and the divorce took place four months after the wedding. After breaking up with her husband, Jennifer Esposito said that in family life, he turned out to be an absolute tyrant. And Cooper, in turn, admitted that he and his wife did not fit each other and decided not to torture themselves.
Novels with famous beauties
