Bradley Cooper

Just watched a few interviews. Look, I hate him as well but I truly don't see the closeting side. Can DL educate me? What am I missing? I don't see any telltale signs.

Seriously, what is there to "hate" about Bradley Cooper? What has he ever done to instill actual hate in people? (I should say posters on DL. People I know seem to like him just fine.)

Wow, that picture up top proves he really is over 6 feet tall(I assumed like all actors he was fudging it a bit in listing his specs.)

I have stood next to Fallon before and he is 6 foot legit, so Cooper must be about 6'1 1/2, Nice,

Victor Garber brought his "Alias" co-star Bradley Cooper with him to the Emmys after the show's premiere season.

That's pretty fuckin' gay.

by Anonymousreply 701/05/2019

R2 people hate him cause he’s overhyped and over praised. He has yet to give a performance that’s truly amazing since Silver Linings Playbook and yet everything sees praise.

He was ridiculous in American Hustle and don’t get me started on all the praise and nominations for American Sniper. That was bullshit.

Now he said overpraised for A Star is Born, in which the movie itself is all hype. He wasn’t good but nothing significant, but he will most likely win the Oscar.

Yeah but Lainey's the one who was totally convinced that Johnny Depp and Vanessa were absolutely devoted to each other--she went on and on about how in sync they were at the Oscars because when Depp held out his hand without looking, Vanessa was right there to grab it. She was swooning over how wonderful Depp was etc. etc. Of course, when that fell apart and Depp ended up with Heard, Lainey turned on him in a whiplash second.

Not that anyone else is wrong about BC but I wouldn't use Lainey as confirmation.

It's been rumored for many years (didn't Ted Casablanca give him a nick name? Not Toothy Tile, because that's Jakey Poo)but there's also a pattern of what looks like obvious bearding. There are some really stiff and phony looking photos of him cavorting on a beach with his current woman, in what seems to be an obvious set up for the papps.

And, he has zero chemistry with women.

Whatever you think of Cooper's acting - it's not great but it's serviceable - you got to give him credit for going to Glastonbury and singing in front of that crowd to film it without any back up plan in case the whole thing went south. They could have booed him or thrown bottles and that would have put the end note on ASIB.

by Anonymousreply 2402/11/2019

Besides the Garber at the Emmys episode (where Victor introduced Cooper to Joan Rivers on the red carpet as "my fine young friend"), there were the multitude of rumors about Cooper and Liam Neeson during the making of the A-Team Movie (and just after Neeson's wife Natasha Richardson suddenly died - Cooper was there to "comfort" his "friend" Liam). Plus Cooper's quickie marriage and divorce with Jennifer Esposito... google that!

And let's face it - Cooper's version of ASIB is SO CLOSE to the Cukor/Garland version - certainly closer than it is to the first version or the Streisand version - and all the talk about it being his "pet project" for so long - only a queen would want to remake a Judy Garland movie.

by Anonymousreply 2502/11/2019

R25 I haven't seen the movie yet, but I would have thought it would be closer to the Streisand version, just going by the visuals, he seems to really be going for the Kris Kristofferson look, and it is set in the music industry not film.

When he did Howard Stern on one of his first interviews during the sexiest man alive hoopla Stern said "Now you must have girls throwing themselves at you left right and center and you can get any woman you want it must be great ..."

And Cooper just forced a smile and it froze on his face and he just said "Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah ..." a few times ... it was not very believable or comfortable.

But that doesn't make him gay.

SLP was a Dreadful film. Even Deniro tired in that one. Ridiculous down to Indian at ball park.

He's definitely had work done on his jaw and chin, and obviously gets botox every now and then.

I thought he was hot when he was the fun, sexy, actor from the hangover. Now his serious artist persona is vomit inducing, and a major turn off.

I'd like to know how many people here have seen the new ASIB and liked it. There was a discussion in one of the threads about the Streisand version, and the consensus was that it sucked. I had fond memories of that but was willing to dismiss them - I'd only seen the movie once at the age of 14, when it first came out (never saw the older ones). I sat down to watch BC's version with an open mind but hated everything about it except the OK performances. It looked like low-budget trash with a shorthand script, bland musical numbers, and no character development. I then rewatched the Streisand version, which seemed like a masterpiece in comparison. But the critics are unanimous that BC's version is the best of the bunch and Streisand's is the worst. So I'm wondering if the problem is that I'm now officially old and unable to process new stuff, or that Marvel movies have turned younger audience into retards who are only able to process two-minute scenes and blurbs for dialogue.

by Anonymousreply 5802/14/2019

I love Bc’s ASIB and I loved Bab’s version too. But now I strongly prefer Coopers version.

Love Cooper and always have as an actor and a hottie, but he looks like a different person and I agree with prior poster that I really can’t figure out why. Must be multiple different face things he’s had done because it’s more than just a nose job or chin work.

R62 - yes, he now has a Manilow quality. He was so hot in Hangover - not sure why he messed with anything.

Based on his hairline in Wedding Crashers and Alias, I would have thought he’d be balder so I’d imagine he’s messing with that too.

Looks like he had cheek implants which are just the worst. Cheek implants don't make anyone look younger or better, they just make someone look like they've had cheek implants and everybody else is like "WTF did you do to your face?" I don't know why cheek implants were even invented, they're absolutely pointless.

That's such an absurd statement. Yes, he may have used some intermittent Botox, had some fillers, laser resurfacing and even a conservative rhinoplasty, but he's certainly not undergone "massive plastic surgery."

You idiots have no idea what you're talking about OR looking at. You think EVERYONE has had tons of surgery when in reality it's just normal aging. Yes, most actors and actresses have had some form of surgery and some have decidenly had quite a bit; however, the notion that Cooper has undergone any kind of facial implant surgery is just uneducated. Nothing in his appearance supports ANYTHING other than, possibly, a conservative rhino and other non-surgical procedures.

No, it's not R69. That's just an odd photograph of him. If you look at other photographs from that same time period you'll see. I'm not at all saying he's never had a scalpel to his face; on the contrary he probably has. He's most definitely had a minor (very skilled) rhinoplasty. But other than structural changes to to aging and weight gain, there's absolutely nothing whatsoever to support "massive surgery" claims. Your posts put him on same level as Kyle Jenner or Heidi Montag and that's just not accurate.

R69, you're desperately trying to pretend he's had nothing massive done on his face. When someone's appearance changes so much people don't recognize them it's obvious something major has happened.

R69/R74, this is datalounge. People think that it is impossible to be good looking without shitloads of surgery. It makes them feel better about their own dismal appearance.

r58, loved this version of ASIB. The music industry is what is similar with the Babs version but that is where it ends. Kris Kristopherson's version was jealous of his wife's career. Bradley's isn't. He is more of the mentor and supporter for her more like the Judy Garland version. He is upset that she is changed from the real storyteller to some fake commercial pop star. His undoing is the fear that he is holding her back.

Here's a real one if you bitches won't crucify me. Bradley was a doorman at Morgans hotel on Madison when he was in acting school. Morgans was Ian Schrager's first business effort after getting out of jail from the Studio 54 stuff. Ian hired very handsome guys as doormen, bellboys, room service etc. (and by the way, Morgans was his best hotel of all imo). Anyway, Bradley was hooking up with a friend of mine from Brown who was hired there (great looking, blond water polo guy from CA) and at that time was about as "out" as one could be. The two of them showed up about a dozen times at various parties etc. No one fuckin believes this shit but what do I care.
