Hollywood might be full to the brim with bright, good-looking people who have the drive and desire to obtain what they want, no matter the cost, but that doesn’t mean it’s overflowing with compassion and generosity.
Quite the opposite, in fact. The celebrity-led entertainment industry is a cutthroat business, and it’s no surprise that such an atmosphere would produce ruthless leaders.
As such, there are many among the Earth’s most well-recognized and adored superstars who aren’t actually all that pleasant. Sure, they’re amusing, and they may even have a perfectly built PR persona that makes them sound wonderful in interviews, but the truth is, you probably wouldn’t want to have dinner with them.
Of course, not every Hollywood star is being painted with the same broad brush. That is not only unequal, but also immoral.
Some people defy convention and conventional wisdom by doing something completely different than what everyone else does. There may not be many of them, but I believe it is still vital to bring attention to them whenever possible.
Bradley Cooper is an actor who has achieved international renown for his work. He has reached a pinnacle that most ambitious artists can only dream of, having acted in such critically acclaimed films as The Hangover, A Star is Born, and Limitless.
The 48-year-modest old’s origins stands in stark contrast to the millions he has made and the lavish lifestyle he now enjoys as a result.
Cooper was born to Gloria Campano and Charles John Cooper on January 5, 1975, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His mother worked at a local NBC station and his father was a stockbroker, but both made sure they were present to provide their son the finest possible childhood.
When asked about his childhood, Cooper has said that it was easy and joyful. He was raised with respect and dignity by parents who instilled in him a desire to join the military or train as a ninja.
Cooper once said, “I begged my father to send me to Valley Forge Military Academy. Before that I thought only ninjas understood the meaning of life and death. And so I begged my father to send me to Japan…so I could train to become a ninja.”
When he was young, Cooper decided to pursue a career in acting; he had a rocky start, but his perseverance and talent ultimately paid off.
Even so, Cooper has always been a family man, and the death of his father in 2011 shocked the whole family.
Bradley reportedly helped take care of the older Cooper in the months before his death, when he succumbed to lung cancer. Even though he was already a famous actor, he moved back in with his parents so that he could take better care of his ailing father.
Tragically, Bradley was the one to hold his dying father in his arms.
“It’s a whole new world,” Bradley said. “And it was instantaneous. It wasn’t like months later. It was like his last exhale, and I was holding him, and it was like everything changed.”
Cooper said it was “overwhelming and tremendously stressful,” but he was glad to be in a position to help.
The actor’s father had passed away, and after his passing, he vowed to honor his legacy by honoring the memories they had shared.
His relationship with his mom was also enhanced. The actor reportedly began spending more time with her, even taking her on a trip to Europe, and eventually invited her to move in with him in Los Angeles.
Bradley added, “We’re surviving. Both of us. Let’s face it: It’s probably not easy for her, by the way, to be living with her son.” “It’s life.”
Cooper’s mom was his date to the 2019 Academy Awards. They walked the red carpet together, which was a really sweet gesture.
Not sure whether you share my enthusiasm, but Bradley Cooper is one of my all-time favorite performers. Oh, I’m so pleased to hear that he’s a genuinely good guy, too!
