Bradley Cooper has come a long way since his first role in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-him moment on the first season of Sex & The City in 1999.
He’s had hits (The Hangover) and misses (All About Steve), Oscar-nominated turns in Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and American Sniper, and voiced Rocket Racoon in Guardians Of The Galaxy. And we can’t forget his highest honor to date…People’s Sexiest Man Alive in 2011.
The hunky actor will next appear opposite Lady Gaga in his remake of A Star is Born, which also marks his directorial debut.
