Bradley Cooper wants the director who mocked his 7 Oscar nominations to go f—k himself

Bradley Cooper has scored multiple Oscar nominations for acting, writing, and producing, but some will forever see the multi-hyphenate as the guy bleating like a seal in Wedding Crashers, the guy having sweaty sex in a tool shed in Wet Hot American Summer, or the guy with the hangover in The Hangover. That includes some of Hollywood's biggest names, apparently.

On a recent episode of the podcast SmartLess, which is hosted by actors Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, and Will Arnett, the star recounted an incident involving a famous director during his awards season campaign for A Star is Born. Cooper was at a party with an actress friend when he met the unnamed filmmaker, who offered up some less-than-flattering comments.

The 47-year-old had seven nominations to his name at the time, including nods for his performances in American Hustle, American Sniper, and A Star is Born. His friend, also a well-known performer, had previously been nominated for three Oscars. According to Cooper, the director quipped, "What world are we living in where you have seven nominations and she's only got three?"

"I'm like, 'Bro, why are you such an a--hole?'" Cooper recounted. "I would never f--king forget that. Go f--k yourself."

Cooper was a TV star before finding success in big-screen comedies like The Hangover and He's Just Not That Into You. Soon, though, he took on heavier roles in films like 2011's Limitless and 2012's The Place Beyond the Pines. In 2014, he drew raves for his turn in a Broadway revival of Bernard Pomerance's The Elephant Man.

But despite his success at dramatic projects, some still see him as more of a Rocket Racoon than a Robert De Niro.

In the same interview, he shared that a "hero female actress" made a hurtful comment when he nabbed his first ever nomination for Silver Linings Playbook.

"She's like, 'I saw your movie. You deserve the nom,'" Cooper said. "I was like, 'What? I'm sorry, what?' 'The nom.' Then like 10 or 20 minutes later — I'm not kidding — I passed her going to the bathroom and she mouths it, 'The nom.' I remember [thinking], 'What the f--k is this town?' Can you imagine saying that to somebody? You've got to be f--ked up to do that."

Perhaps these Hollywood haters will be more moved by his next directorial effort, Maestro, a drama centering on composer Leonard Bernstein. Cooper will portray Bernstein in the film while Carey Mulligan co-stars as the actress Felicia Montealegre, Bernstein's wife.

"There's the movie; a movie about marriage, a movie about family. That's it," Cooper said. "Why is it nuclear? Because it's this f--king music. Music is nuclear. I had a secret weapon in A Star is Born. It was Lady Gaga. The secret weapon I have in this movie is f--king Leonard Bernstein and Gustav Mahler. The music!"

Miss Cooper really is a nasty fucking queen.

NO one takes this bitch seriously, which is why this stupid cunt hasn't won any awards.

Fucking rat face.

Eldergays have an irrational hatred of Bradley Cooper so this should be fun.

Why was he offended when she said he deserved "the nom"? Is the implication he'd lost already and she was saying he deserved to be nominated but not win?

by Anonymousreply 4June 21, 2022 1:07 AM

Can anyone explain why the "nom" part was so offensive? Was the implication from this actress that he was only good enough to be nominated but nobody was expecting him to win?

It's a completely rational hatred of THIS BITCH.

Nasty, fucking entitled no-talent stupid closet case right-wing supporting goddamned whore.

He can sit on Clint Eastwood's 90 year old cock, for all I care.

He will NEVER be forgiven for glorifying that right-wing murderer Chris Kyle and trying to turn him into a hero.

My name is Bradley Cooper.

I'm a closet case right-wing supporting cunt, who likes getting fucked up the ass.

My voice sucks, but I think I can sing.

I have a string of beards to make people think I'm straight.

My favorite director is Clint Eastwood.

I use the word "bro" in hopes that people will believe my lies that I am into women.

I repeatedly say I don't want an Oscar, even though I whore myself out for it every Oscar season.

I'll never stop until I get one, and then pretend that I never wanted it.

Yes, R14.

He glorified right-wing Chris Kyle who murdered countless innocent people who opposed his right-wing views.

Bradley Cooper played him as a motherfucking HERO.

He shall never be forgiven.

The fact that Texas Governor Greg Abbott supports this asshole, is all you need to know about why Bradley Cooper should be hated.

He played this fucker as a HERO, and he made millions off of it.

This, from a closeted gay man.

Along with Aaron Schock, I have never hated two people more than I hate both of these cunts.

I get the sense that the "you deserved the nom" statement was loaded. As if she was saying it was a shock that he was nominated but after seeing it, she realizes he deserved it after all. As if he is not a great actor but deserved the nomination for that film.

If that's the case, she was only half lying.

He's a terrible actor who didn't deserve the nomination.

R21 Possibly. Except no one actually said this to Ms. Cooper.

Did he get jaw implants? Or maybe it's just weight gain. His face looks much more square (and it's not an improvement).

Was the director implying he wouldn't have gotten all those opportunities and recognition if he hadn't given up the ass to other mens in Hollywood?

by Anonymousreply 27June 21, 2022 2:01 AM

Basically, R27.

Everyone in Hollywood knows the dirt.

Whether Miss Cooper wants to admit it or not, there's only one reason he got to where he is today.

Two words: COCK SUCKER.

My guess would be Quentin Tarantino for the director who mocked his Oscar nominations.

by Anonymousreply 29June 21, 2022 2:18 AM

Cooper's facial structure has definitely changed radically over the last decade. He had a touch-up to his front hairline around 2009 which gave him those enviable locks (he was brushing it forwarded and bleaching it to hide thinning before then).

His new squarer/fuller jawline and heavier brow bone are conjectured to be side-effects of him going on Human Growth Hormone (roids baby!) for American Sniper. Supposedly, it can enlarge the brow and jaw areas (you see this in phenomenon in Efron and some other celebs who have clearly been on it for a role or two). There's a small possibility he had some kind of implant, but the HGH seems more likely as the new face seemed to follow his roid-ed up period.

He's definitely carrying a little more weight overall the last 5-6 years which would also contribute to the fuller face...but structurally, there's definitely some new things going on.

Good for him- he deserves his awards. He’s a very talented bright fellow. Proof is in the hate he inspires among the bottom dwellers on DL. In spite of it he’s made some good films- and is putting together a serious body of work.

R37, I posted this in the other thread, but if we assume the three-time nominee hasn’t won, the only options are Joan Allen, Diane Ladd, Piper Laurie, Laura Linney, Michelle Pfeiffer, Sigourney Weaver, Debra Winger and Saoirse Ronan (who now has four, but only had three during the time of the incident).

R42, the director was the person who was the cunt. The actress was merely a bystander. Plus, Winger hasn’t been invited to an A-list Hollywood party in decades.

It was at a CAA party, and both three-time nominee Michelle Pfeiffer and notorious asshole director Darren Aronofsky (who worked with Pfeiffer) are CAA clients. That makes the most sense to me.

I've never even seen one of his movies.

There's something very off-putting about his face.

Besides that, none of his movies have ever interested me.

Nightmare Alley was a flop. I think his ego is bigger than his actual appeal. The Bernstein movie will also be a flop. It will get the Netflix prestige but no one would see it on a theater. Bradley is entering his decline - closeted weirdo.
