Now that’s he’s playing Leonard Bernstein, I think Bradley should just be honest with himself. I don’t really hear women fangirl over him and most people suspect he is closeted. Also, he’s famous but he’s not Tom Cruise famous. He would have nothing to lose by coming out.

When I was a college-age gay person, it seemed very important to me that everyone else be out of the closet as I was. I felt strongly about it for a while. I am older now and really don't care whether anyone comes out of the closet at this point because it it's an older actor or actress, they're probably being dragged out kicking and screaming. And that's not a great message to send. However, do not for one second give me the bullshit excuse that because they're out to family and friends that they don't OWE anything to their fans. The fans PAY for their existence. If you want to be a coward and tell yourself that you're out to family and friends and that's all the outing you need to do, fine then, But don't pretend that you couldn't be doing a great service to some kid who is on the verge of killing himself because it's inconvenient and financially not in your best interests to come out. Like I said, I really don't care. But don't sugarcoat it: You are a pussy if you don't come out.

I'm dubious about the idea that deep down what he really wants is to live as a happy, out gay man. Even though I strongly suspect he leans way more towards men than women, it's entirely possible that he doesn't actually want to live a prideful, open lifestyle. He's not Ricky Martin.

r113 I don't think he's torn between men and women. and i suspect he's more to the gay end of the spectrum than the straight (or even bi). but i think it's also possible he kinda likes women sometimes and wants to keep the option open . Is the only possible reality that he just wants to settle down with Leo or Victor Garber?

He’s a Hollywood guy, he can have anyone he likes. He knows it and takes advantage of that. His mom seems to always be meddling. she’s probably happy with her 1 grandchild. I’m sure she doesn’t pressure him to get married because she does not like anyone.

It's a Hollywood thing. He was asked if he wanted to be a big star. Was told what he needed to do to make it happen. And then he gladly did it.

R128 that’s so true. everything thus far has been speculation. Gays know because we know…but the average person is probably like “ he dated iryna he can’t be gay) so he’s only hurting himself by keeping this a secret. He seems like a whore anyway

Oh, pulllease. Not only am I not gay but I had to fight a lot of homophobia to play the part of a gay man with AIDS in "Philadelphia." No way was Hollywood gonna cast an actual gay actor in an actual gay part back then. Oh, and I won an Academy Award for Best Actor because I was ACTING. So fuck you.

Fuck anyone who claims people need to come out. Look at what happened to that British actor, Rupert What’s his name.
Above average in looks, very decent actor, oozed charm and had a great sense of humor.
Soon as he came out? Boom! A List career possibilities were suddenly over.
I’d never come out if I were a man in Cooper’s position. If he’s gay or bi, surely those who matter to him the most, already know.
Fuck anyone who believes he should run around with rainbow colored lollipops, instead of making a few great films and earning the money that comes with it.
The man has mouths to feed. Why in the world should he put them at risk by tanking his career in a country that is STILL VERY homophobic?

I'm sorry but who here thinks Bradley Cooper is nice and in know way could be using drugs?
I'm reading through this thread and I don't know if he is gay or straight but these comments were lunacy. First he is a recovery alcoholic and with that means he was a dick. Sorry, I'm sober now and I all former alcoholics were dicks or assholes in life. Maybe wonderful people now in recovery.
His ex-wife Jennifer Esposito wrote in her book that their 4 month marriage was toxic and she ignored a whole bunch of red flags.
He has a baby mama but was never married to that model. I read some where on datalounge, years ago, several men who were actors stating they had several women that would have a child with them to keep up a ruse of them being heterosexual.
All the gossip about him and Gaga, she could give too fucks. All those who wanted that to be. Gaga saying we sold you a couple. Gaga has ended a relationship she was in around the time that a Star was Born was happening. They did have chemistry, and I think she would have been on that if he were straight.
He seems like a weirdo to me. I like his work but seems like he would be a creep in a relationship, with man or woman.

This is a really stupid question, and I can only assume it is not sincere.
Any male actor whose career is based on leading man appeal and whose roles mostly depend on him being desirable for women must retain a heterosexual public image in order to keep getting work.
Most successful out actors do not fall into this category; they are character actors, comedians etc. They are not romantic leads and most of them are not successful because of their sex appeal to women.
Unless you are going to pay Bradley's mortgage maybe save the advice. We now live in a world where there are plenty of out actors and public figures. No kid is going to go without a role model because Bradley needs to be marketable to women.
