He has been nominated for numerous prestigious awards, including seven Academy Awards and a Tony Award, as well as a BAFTA Award.

Cooper appeared in Forbes Celebrity 100 on three occasions, as well as Time's list of the 100 most influential people in the country in 2015.

His films have grossing $11 billion worldwide, and he has been named one of the world's highest-paid actors for four years. Cooper enrolled in the Actors Studio at The New School in New York City in 2000.

He first rose to fame as Will Tippin in the spy thriller television show Alias (2001–2006), and he had limited success as a supporting actor in the comedy film Wedding Crashers (2005).

His breakthrough role with The Hangover, a critically and commercially lucrative comedy that has produced two sequels in 2011 and 2013.

Critics applauded Cooper's portrayal of a struggling writer in the crime drama Limitless (2011) and a rookie police officer in the crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines (2012). Cooper's love for the romantic comedy Silver Linings Playbook (2012), the black comedy American Hustle (2013), and the war biographical American Sniper (2014), which he also produced, had greater success.

He was nominated for four Academy Awards for his work in these films, becoming the tenth actor to receive an Oscar nomination in three years.

Billboard's number one soundtrack, for which he received a BAFTA Award for Best Film Music, has been nominated.

Its lead single, "Shallow," debuted in more than 20 countries and gained him a Grammy Award. Cooper was married to actress Jennifer Esposito from 2006 to 2007.

He was also in a relationship with Russian model Irina Shayk, with whom he has a daughter.

He supports several charities that support cancer survivors.

Early life

Cooper was born in Abington Township, near Philadelphia, on January 5, 1975, and grew up in Jenkintown and Rydal's nearby communities. Gloria (née Campano), his mother, worked for the local NBC affiliate. Charles Cooper, his father, worked as a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch. Cooper's father was of Irish descent, while his mother, who is of Italian descent (from Abruzzo and Naples), has Italian roots. Holly, his older sister, has a sister. He had cholesteatoma in his ear straight after his birth and punctured his eardrum when he began diving at an early age.

Cooper has said, "I never lived the life of 'Oh, you're so beautiful.' When I was younger, people thought I was a child because I seemed like a girl, perhaps because my mother would keep my hair long." He excelled at basketball and enjoyed cooking: "I used to have neighbors come over after kindergarten, and I'd cook them food." I prided myself on making whatever was in the freezer and turning it into lasagna." To become a ninja, he initially wanted to attend Valley Forge Military Academy and then move to Japan. His father introduced him to films like The Elephant Man, which inspired him to be an actor at an early age. Cooper, who comes from a non-actor's family, claims that his parents initially wanted him to pursue a career in finance rather than acting, but that eventually changed their minds when they saw Joseph Merrick in an excerpt from the film The Elephant Man.

He worked at the Philadelphia Daily News while attending Germantown Academy. He says he was neither "the smartest one" nor "the coolest kid" in high school, and "really didn't have anything going on." Cooper spent a year at Villanova University before transferring to Georgetown University, where he majored in English and minored in French. Cooper earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Georgetown in 1997. He was a member of the Georgetown Hoyas rowing crew and appeared with Nomadic Theatre. Cooper became fluent in French while at Georgetown and spent six months as an exchange student in Aix-en-Provence, France. He appeared in his television debut, Sex and the City, in 1999, opposite Sarah Jessica Parker for a brief period. Cooper spent time on the short-lived series The Street, as he took him to Peru and Croatia, as well as a recurring role in the short-lived series The Street.

When he auditioned for the master class graduate degree at the Actors Studio, Cooper was interested in a career in diplomacy and was selected by James Lipton. He earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in acting from the Actors Studio Drama School at The New York City in 2000. "I was never able to relax in my life before she," he said. She accompanied him on several of his films. Cooper worked as a doorman at the Morgans Hotel in New York City and briefly spoke with Robert de Niro and Sean Penn in question-and-answer master class sessions, which were later released episodes of Inside the Actors Studio.

Personal life

Cooper's early days in the entertainment business were marred with failures. When his character in Alias' second season was reduced to a tiny fraction of the average, he considered quitting show business. Suicide was triggered by his heroin use and questions about his work. Cooper thanks his acquaintance and fellow actor Will Arnett for assisting him in overcoming his heroin use and seeking out therapy. Since 2004, Cooper has abstained from alcohol, remarking that it may have ended his life.

In October 2006, Cooper proposed to actress Jennifer Esposito, and the pair married in December. She filed for divorce in May 2007, which was finalized in November. "It was just something that happened" during their brief marriage, he explained. The good news is that we all knew it. "You just know it." He met Renée Zellweger while filming Case 39 in 2006. When the film was released, the public speculated over the course of their friendship in 2009. They reportedly broke up in 2011 after being unemployed. Zoe Salda, a film actress who appeared on television from December 2011 to January 2013, dated him. Suki Waterhouse, an English model and actress, began dating him in March 2013; their relationship ended two years later. From April 2015 to June 2019, Cooperation was in a partnership with Russian model Irina Shayk. They have a daughter, Lea de Seine, who was born in March 2017.

Cooper and his family have a close relationship. He and his mother moved to Los Angeles two years after his father died of lung cancer in 2011. "I was in a great position" after his father's illness, since I was able to put everything on hold in virtually every facet of my life and solely concentrate on taking care of him." "Just extremely overwhelming, incredibly difficult, and all consuming," he has described the course of his father's medical care as "very frustrating, very complicated, and all consuming." He has since aided charities that assist with cancer research. He joined the board of directors for the charity Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a non-profit group that supports people living with cancer in June 2014. In April 2016, he was instrumental in the establishment of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy, which treats cancer patients. He served as a producer for Stand Up to Cancer's Fifth Biennial Telecast, a primetime fundraising special that aired in September.

Cooper was involved in an Alzheimer's Association campaign in 2009, which aimed to raise concerns of Alzheimer's disease. He is also one of the Alzheimer's Association Celebrity Champions, a charity that was established for the same cause. Cooper spent a year with The National Geographic Society in the UK, to ensure that military veterans are properly represented in popular culture. Cooper has contributed to Democratic candidates and attended the 2016 Democratic National Convention (where Hillary Clinton was nominated for president) to hear then-president Barack Obama speak at the White House. Barack Obama is described by the author as "an amazing president."

Cooper, who grew up in Philadelphia, is a fan of the National Football League's Eagles and has made various appearances on behalf of the team besides his Silver Linings Playbook role. In an ESPN commercial remarking an infamous win over Santa Claus in 1968 Philadelphia Eagles season, he played a snowball and appeared in his box at games, including the Eagles' first Super Bowl victory in 2018.

Bradley Cooper Career

Career

Cooper was late to film Wet Hot American Summer (2001), an ensemble comedy that marked his cinematic debut. The film, which took place at a fictional summer camp in 1981, stars Ben, a mentor, and Michael Ian Black's love interest. Despite the fact that the film was critically and commercially poor, it has since spawned a cult following. Cooper reprised his role in the film's prequel Wet Hot American Summer: The First Day of Camp (2015), an eight-episode Netflix film.

Cooper's character, Alias (2001–2006), had some success with Will Tippin, a local reporter for a newspaper and Jennifer Garner's best friend. Garner was one of the first people he met in Los Angeles and was described as "very maternal" by Cooper. "She wanted to take care of me and make sure I was okay all the time." Complex Networks' writer characterized his character as "arguably the center of Season 1." Cooper became ill as his screen time began to decrease. Despite the fact that he would only be on the show for three days, he begged writer J. Abrams to write his own character. Cooper tore his Achilles tendon while playing basketball just short of his time with Abrams. He considered quitting permanently, but in 2004, he appeared in Wedding Crashers (2005). He appeared in the 2002 psychological thriller Changing Lanes during this period. The scenes in which he appeared were cut out of the film's final cut were cut out of the film's final cut, but they were still available on the film's DVD and Blu-ray versions. Bending All the Rules (2004), the short-lived television series Miss Match (2003), the television film I Want to Marry Ryan Banks (2004), and the WB series Jack & Bobby (2004-2005).

Cooper's career prospects soared as a result of his more prominent role in David Dobkin's comedy Wedding Crashers, alongside Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, and Rachel McAdams. He played Sack Lodge, Claire's competitive, arrogant, and agressive boyfriend, a role he characterized as "sort of a sociopath." Cooper believed that the antagonistic person changed people's perception of him because he had previously played the "nice guy." The film earned over $285 million worldwide with a $40 million production budget. Fox opened Kitchen Confidential, based on a memoir by chef Anthony Bourdain, with Cooper in the lead role. Despite positive reviews of the series, the show was cancelled after just four episodes due to poor ratings.

In Three Days of Rain on Broadway with Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd, Cooper appeared as Pip/Theo in March 2006. Minor roles were played in the romantic comedy Failure to Launch (2006) and the satirical comedy The Comebacks (2007). Cooper appeared in the fifth season of Nip/Tuck (2007) as Aidan Stone, a television actor on the fictional show Hearts 'N Scalpels. He appeared in Older than America in 2008 and appeared onstage in Theresa Rebeck's play The Understudy at the Williamstown Theatre Festival alongside Kristen Johnston. Cooper landed the lead role in the Ryuhei Kitamura-directed horror film The Midnight Meat Train (2008), based on Clive Barker's 1984 short story of the same name. Cooper's playing the shadow of a freelance photographer trying to track down a serial killer was a departure from Cooper's earlier comedic roles and an amusement that he enjoyed. Critics loved the film, but it didn't do well at the box office.

Cooper appeared in a supporting role in the film He's Just Not That Into You in 2009, a television host on Saturday Night Live on the Radio, portrayed actor Christian Bale in a single sketch and a supporting role. Cooper's breakthrough role appeared in Todd Phillips' comedy The Hangover (2009). He played Phil Wenneck, one of the three friends, as well as Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no recall of the previous night and the bachelor lacking. The Hangover was a commercial success and finished as one of the country's most top-grossing R-rated films. "Mr. Cooper... provides the most interesting variation on an old classic," A. O. Scott of The New York Times wrote, "Mr. Cooper... provides the most authentic alternative to an old benchmark, playing his cocky frat boy with a snails of rage that masks an obsession that masks an apprehension as difficult to account for as it is to miss." Cooper's first nomination for MTV Movie Awards—Best Comedic Performance — at the 13th Hollywood Film Festival and his first nomination for MTV Movie Awards for his role. Cooper's success transformed him into a "true leading man," according to the Daily Telegraph. "It's the same," Cooper said in a 2011 interview with Shave: "It's the same." Sure, more doors have been opened for sure, but it is not like I sit back with a cigar and read the scripts that have been sent."

Cooper appeared in Case 39, a postponed production that had been shot in 2006. He costarred Sandra Bullock in the comedy All About Steve, a film that was panned by critics, failed to attract a large audience and won them the Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Screen Combo. Cooper appeared in the ensemble romantic comedy Valentine's Day (2010), directed by Garry Marshall, co-starring Julia Roberts after a role in one of eleven segments of the anthology film New York, I Love You (2009). The film was a commercial hit, grossing over $215 million worldwide. He appeared in Brother's Justice and as the fictional character Templeton "Faceman" Peck in the A-Team's feature film version, alongside Liam Neeson, Quinton Jackson, and Sharlto Copley. He stopped eating sugar, salt, and flour and flour, and underwent strenuous workouts to prepare for the job. The film received poor feedback and poor box office returns after being released. "Cooper confirms his fame as perhaps the most smugly narcissistic performer," Tim Robey of The Daily Telegraph wrote, while Nev Pierce of Empire praised both Cooper and Copley for their "acing swagger and insanity respectively, who can effectively capture and then re-forge their legendary characters." In June 2010, Cooper appeared as the guest host of WWE Raw.

Cooper appeared in Limitless, based on Alan Glynn's 2001 book The Dark Fields. He played a struggling writer who is given the opportunity to fully utilize his brain and greatly enhance his lifestyle in this Neil Burger-directed film. Box Office Mojo, a box office website, was concerned about the film's financial prospects, but it became a commercial success with a worldwide gross of $161 million. Cooper's appearance, according to a Variety writer, "makes further strides toward big stardom," spelled out excellent early spring returns and socko vid play." The Hangover Part II (2011), which earned over $580 million worldwide, saw greater commercial success. The film's reviews were generally critical, but Mary Pols of Time magazine wrote an article lauding Cooper's "knowledgeful appearance": he's both the peacock and the parody of one. He's blessed with good looks and superb timing, especially the small asides." He was nominated for Favorite Comedic Movie Actor at the 38th People's Choice Awards.

Cooper appeared in four films this year: The Words, Hit and Run, The Place Beyond the Pines, and The Silver Linings Playbook. The mystery drama The Words, as well as the action comedy Hit and Run, went nowhere commercially. Cooper played a rookie police officer in Derek Cianfrance's critically acclaimed crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines, a role Cianfrance specifically wrote for him. Cooper convinced the director to take on the role after five hours drive to Montréal. Cooper's character was described as someone "parted as a hero" by Cianfrance, who referred to him as "parted as a hero." But inside, corruption is still raging inside, and guilt and shame are buried." Cooper was praised for "electing as an archetype, the principled man who is personally dislikeable," according to a reviewer for The Independent, "I never imagined this actor to be a capable of such sophisticated character work." Despite positive reviews, the film saw modest box office returns.

In David O. Russell's romantic comedy-drama Silver Linings Playbook, an adaptation of Matthew Quick's serio-comic book of the same name, Cooper appeared alongside Robert De Niro and Jennifer Lawrence. (Lawrence): He was depicted as a divorced man with bipolar disorder, a former educator who experiences companionship in a young, depressed widow. Cooper was initially suspicious of playing the part, but later accepted the role inspired by Russell's admiration for him. The director was captivated by his appearance in Wedding Crashers, citing his "good bad energy" and unpredictability as justification for casting; he also believes Cooper will be able to express emotion and vulnerability on screen. Cooper took dance lessons with choreographer Mandy Moore, who says Cooper has "some real natural dancing ability." The film was a box-office hit, grossing $236.4 million on a $21 million production budget. Cooper "seizes the juiciest position of his career," Peter Travers of Rolling Stone wrote, and faces every comic and dramatic challenge. "In his comedic, touching, and vital role that resonates," he has a ache. He received an MTV Movie Award for Best Result, an Academy Award, and the Screen Actor Guild Award for Best Actor for his contribution.

In 2013, Cooper resuming his role as Phil Wenneck in the third and final installment of The Hangover trilogy, which critics had dismunked. Cooper was "reduced to mugging for the camera," according to the Independent's reviewer, who also provided reaction photographs to nothing." Nonetheless, the film, like its preceding entries, was a commercial success, grossing $362 million globally, and it remains one of Cooper's top-grossing releases. In David O. Russell's crime comedy-drama American Hustle, he played an unhinged FBI agent. The film, based on the FBI's Abscam sting operation, is set against the backdrop of political graft in 1970s New Jersey. Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence appeared in the film. With global revenues of $251.1 million, American Hustle was a critical and commercial success. "Cooper is trapped in the least rewarding position, but we keep finding new little snippets of company to keep the attention," Kim Newman of Empire said, lauding his "spot impersonations of his overly cautious (but smart) boss." Cooper was nominated for an Academy Award, BAFTA Award, Critics' Choice Movie Award, and the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor, but he did not win any.

Cooper reunited with Lawrence in the Susanne Bier-directed drama Serena, Ron Rash's period book. Since realizing that they are unable to bear children, the pair became involved in criminal situations. The picture was shot in 2012 but it was released in 2014 to scathing reviews and poor box office returns. "Cooper once more establishes his worth as a leading man who treats his roles as a lead actor," Jake Wilson of Canberra said. In the Marvel Studios film Guardians of the Galaxy, Cooper performed Rocket Raccoon. The elephant man, Joseph Merrick, was brought back to Broadway for the 2014 revival of The Elephant Man as the severely injured Joseph Merrick. "Cooper avoids every trap of 'disability' behavior," Michael Coveney of Whatsonstage wrote of his appearance, suffusing this outer appearance with deep emotion and passion. It's a beautiful, and moving display. He received a nomination for Best Actor in a Play.

In addition to 2014, Cooper co-produced and starred as United States Navy sniper Chris Kyle in American Sniper, a biographical war drama directed by Clint Eastwood. Kyle, the narrator of the United States military career, was the subject of the film, which is loosely based on the eponymous memoir. Cooper's body seemed to be a lot bigger than Kyle, and he underwent intense training and followed a strict diet, resulting in muscle gain of 40 pounds (18 kg). Cooper's preparations also included lessons with a vocal coach and watching a video of Kyle. Kevin Lacz, a US Navy SEAL veteran who served with Kyle, trained with Kyle to learn how to use a rifle. The film and Cooper's appearances received mainly positive feedback. "A fantastic job from a majority-up Bradley Cooper," the writer of Variety wrote, "this harrowing and personal character study provides some valuable insight into the physical and emotional toll paid on the front lines." Claudia Puig of USA Today expressed the same sentiments: "It's definitely Cooper's show, not Cooper"s display," she said. Cooper embodies Kyle's optimism, tenacity, and vulnerability, giving the appearance of a convincing Texas drawl." American Sniper's earned $547 million worldwide to become Cooper's highest-grossing R-rated film and the third highest-grossing R-rated film of all time. Cooper received an MTV Movie Award for Best Male Performance and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor, and the film was nominated for Best Picture. Cooper was the tenth actor to receive an Academy Award nomination for acting in three years in a row.

At the box office, no one of Cooper's films —Aloha, Burnt, or Joy — fared well. Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams appeared in Cameron Crowe's Aloha. After the Media Action Network for Asian-Americans accused the filmmakers of whitewashing the cast, the project was criticized. Despite the backlash, he was nominated for Choice Movie Actor – Comedy at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards. Cooper played a chef who tries to reclaim his former glory after heroin use took a toll on his career. "While the film was chastised for its "overdone clichés," writer Jon Frosch of The Hollywood Reporter said, "[Cooper] gives a completely engaged appearance that almost makes us want to forget the movie's laziness." Almost." His supporting role in Joy reunited him with David O. Russell and Lawrence. He appeared in 10 Cloverfield Lane in 2016 and was instrumental in War Dogs, co-produced by his and Todd Phillips' production company Joint Effort. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, Cooper referred to Rocket Raccoon once more in 2017. 2.

Cooper produced his first film, A Star Is Born, a recreation of the 1937 musical film of the same name, after reprising the role of Rocket Raccoon in Avengers: Infinity War (2018). Cooper starred in the film as an established musician, Jackson Maine, but his friendship with a woman named Ally (played by Lady Gaga) became strained as his career began to dominate his life. Cooper, who had long wanted to direct a film, was keen on making a love tale. People had warned him against directing a third remake, and he feared that if the film did not succeed, it would end his directing career. In August 2018, the film premiered at the Venice International Film Festival in August 2018, and was distributed around the world in October to critical acclaim. Owen Gleiberman of Variety said, "to say [Cooper] does a good job would be to understate his achievement" and that he "gets right onto the high wire." Cooper "does some of his best work of his career," writes Brian Tallerico of RogerEbert.com, lauding his singing abilities and chemistry with Gaga. The film earned over $425 million at the box office against a $36 million production budget.

Cooper spent nearly four years on the project, as well as spending five days a week on voice, piano, and guitar lessons for six months in preparation for the role. He and Gaga co-wrote and produced the majority of the songs on A Star Is Born's soundtrack, which she insisted they perform live. To prepare, Cooper undertook vocal training for 18 months, including with the help of vocal coach Roger Love. The album features elements of blues rock, country, and bubblegum pop. Billboard claims that the songs are about wanting change, its struggle, love, passion, and bonding, with the music branded as "timeless, gritty, and earnest." They seem to be songs by musicians who, in the real sense, have messed up but not at the listener's heart." The album's debut coincided with the film's, and it featured 34 tracks, including 19 original songs. It received mostly favorable feedback from critics; Mark Kennedy of The Washington Post called it a "five-star marvel" and Ben Beaumont-Thomas of The Guardian called it a "instant classics full of Gaga's emotional power." The soundtrack hit number one in the United States, Ireland, and the United Kingdom, according to business. "Shallow," the record's lead single, was released in September and has climbed to number one in the United States, Ireland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Cooper received the National Board of Review Award for Best Director and two Golden Globe nominations for Best Actor in a Drama and Best Director for the film. Cooper received two Grammy Awards for "Shallow"—Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, the latter winning the first two categories. The soundtrack as a whole received 7 Grammy nominations at two separate ceremonies. A Star Is Born received seven awards, five of which were for Cooper: Best Film, Best Direction, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Film Music, with five of which were for Cooper: Best Film, Best Direction, Best Actor in a Leading Role, only the last five of which were for Cooper: Only the last of these three categories. As a result, Cooper became the first individual with five nominations in a single ceremony in BAFTA's history. Cooper was also nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay. He later remarked that he was "embarrassed" by his inability to obtain a directing nomination at the event.

Cooper was reunited with Clint Eastwood in The Mule (2018), a crime film based on the life of World War II soldier Leo Sharp in which Cooper played a DEA agent in which Cooper appeared as a DEA agent in which Cooper appeared as a DEA agent in which Cooper appeared as a DEA agent. Joaquin Phoenix co-produced Todd Phillips' psychological thriller Joker, which starred Joaquin Phoenix, in 2019. It grossed over $1 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time, and it received awards for Best Picture and a BAFTA Award for Best Film. In Avengers: Endgame (2019), Cooper appeared as Rocket in Avengers: Endgame (2019) and is expected to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Both of Cooper's 2021 debuts—the coming-of-age comedy drama Licorice Pizza and the psychological thriller Nightmare Alley—both received critical acclaim, but at the box office, the movie farewell suffered. Jenelle Riley of Variety found Cooper to be a "scene-stealer" in his eight-minute role as film producer Jon Peters in Paul Thomas Anderson's Licorice Pizza. Riley wrote, "somehow manages to be both absurd and menacing." It's the rare case where the intensity is almost too keen to behold, yet you don't want it to end." Cooper's Nightmare Alley, William Lindsay Gresham's namesake book, was an ambitious carnival performer, for which he took boxing lessons and made his first full frontal nude performance, which he found difficult. The film took a long time to finish due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In Nightmare Alley, Charles Bramesco wrote about his films in 2021. He gave "his most vulnerable and moving performance to date" in the film. Cooper received his fourth nomination for Best Picture in the Academy Award for directing the film.
