Bradley Cooper: Evolution of Bradley Cooper
With His Rugged Good Looks, Bradley Cooper Is Known For His Devious, Yet Charming Character. How Has The Film Star Made His Way To The Top? I'm Taryn Brooks And This Is The Evolution Of Bradley Cooper.
Bradley Was Born In Philadelphia On January 5, 1975 In Pennsylvania. Acting Wasn't His First Love, Instead, He Spent Much Of His Childhood Cooking For Friends. He Told Entertainment Weekly, "I Used To Have Buddies Come Over After Kindergarten And I'd Cook Them Food. I Prided Myself In Taking Whatever Was In The Fridge And Turning It Into Lasagna"
He Put His Cooking Dreams Aside And In 1997, At 22 Years Old, He Graduated From Georgetown University With An English Degree.
Cooper Decided To Turn His Attention To Acting And Enrolled In A Master's Degree Program At The Actors Studio Drama School In New York City. Here We See A Young Bradley Cooper Asking Advice From Actor Sean Penn.
In 1998, He Made His Tv Debut In "Sex And The City" Alongside Sarah Jessica Parker And Two Years Later, In The Hit Series "The Beat."
Bradley Didn't Waste Any Time During The Summers. He Spent His Weekends Working With "leap" Which Stands For Learning Through The Expanded Arts Program. He Worked With Inner City School Children, Teaching Them Acting And Movement.
In 2000, He Landed A Job As The Host For "Treks In A Wild World" For The Discovery Channel, Allowing Him To Experience Everything From Kayaking In British Columbia With Orca Whales To Visiting Nude Beaches In Croatia.
Cooper Had To Skip His Graduation Ceremony For The Actor's Studio To Star In His First Feature Film, "Wet Hot American Summer." And It Wasn't Long Before He Returned Back To Television And Took On A Supporting Role In The Popular Spy Series, "Alias" For Three Seasons.
In 2005, He Took On A Role As A Brutish Jock In The Comedy "Wedding Crashers" With Vince Vaughn And Owen Wilson And A Year Later, He Appeared In "Failure To Launch."
In Late 2006, Cooper Married Actress Jennifer Esposito But In May 2007, She Filed For Divorce.
The Short Marriage Didn't Seem To Distract Him. His Career Skyrocketed In 2009 When He Starred In "new York, I Love You" And "he's Just Not That Into You." Ending The Year, He Rose Into The Spotlight When The Hit Comedy "the Hangover" Hit The Box Office.
In 2010, Cooper Starred In Two Blockbusters - "Valentines Day" And A Remake Of The "A-team." A Year Later, He Showed A More Serious Side As He Played Eddie Mora In The Action Thriller "limitless," Which Hit No. 1 In The Box Office Its Opening Weekend. Following The High Octane Movie, Cooper Starred In The "hangover:part Two," Which Brought In $480 Million Dollars Worldwide. It Was No Surprise That He Was Also Named World's Sexiest Man By People Magazine The Same Year.
Continuing To Shine On The Big Screen, Cooper Starred In David O'russell's "silver Lining Playbook" And Was Nominated For Best Actor In A Leading Role At The 2013 Oscars For His Work In The Film. Bradley Also Wrapped Up The Final Series Of "the Hangover: part 3."
