Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Handsome and irreverently funny, Bradley Cooper's combination of romantic leading man and hilarious character actor chops helped him progress from TV guest spots to memorable parts in features in a relatively short amount of time. After attracting attention for his likable role as Jennifer Garner's reporter friend on "Alias" (ABC, 2001-06), Cooper fearlessly made his first major big screen impression as the unlikable groom in "Wedding Crashers" (2005). He regained audience's affection in lesser fare like "Failure to Launch" (2006) and, in testament to his charisma, emerged unscathed from Sandra Bullock's notorious bomb "All About Steve" (2008). Cooper ensured his own launch with the lead in the critical and box office juggernaut "The Hangover" (2009) and proved an invaluable member of the romantic, dramatic ensemble "He's Just Not That Into You" (2009) and "Valentine's Day" (2010) casts. Graduating to full-fledged stardom with a flashy role in "The A-Team" (2010), Cooper continued to rise as a bankable, talented and very much in-demand movie star, which was confirmed with his star turn in "Limitless" (2011) opposite Robert De Niro and a return to box-office prominence with "The Hangover II" (2011)....

Whether starring in comedies, thrillers or romantic comedies - as well as making a tabloid splash in the wake of rumored romances with Hollywood's loveliest leading ladies - Cooper propelled himself into becoming one of Hollywood's most bankable stars.

But the more you immense yourself in the business side, the farther you get away from why you started in the first place."-Cooper Movieline October 2002
