On January 5, 1975, Bradley Charles Cooper was born. The actor has an elder sister named Holly and is of Italian and Irish descent. His mother, Gloria Campano Cooper, worked for the regional NBC affiliate in Pennsylvania, and his late father, Charlie Cooper, was a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch.
Cooper was brought up a Catholic and lived outside of Philadelphia with one sister. He is Catholic via both of his parents and is Italian through his mother and Irish through his father. He has acknowledged in interviews that he continues to pray every day.
Cooper, who made his feature debut in 2001 with “Wet American Hot Summer,” worked really hard in the business to establish himself. However, the popularity of “The Hangover,” from which he earned $600,000, and the subsequent $5 million for the follow-up in 2011, according to Hello! Magazine, catapulted the actor to prominence almost immediately.
He is so well-liked that his friend and fellow actor Robert De Niro has extended multiple invitations for him to stay at his home. Even the famously difficult filmmaker David O. Russell has often expressed a desire to collaborate with Cooper. Cooper, however, did not become famous or successful overnight.
Unbeknownst to many, Cooper has maintained close ties with his family, particularly with her mother, about whom he has frequently spoken out. He not only talks extremely highly of his mother but also takes her on special dates, most of which take place on the red carpet when he is invited to events such as award presentations and ceremonies.

Cooper, the younger of two children, has a sister named Molly who is older. Cooper said that he didn’t stand out from the pack growing up. His parents weren’t persuaded that he could become a famous actor until he performed Joseph Merrick in a scene from the play “The Elephant Man” on a local program.
After making his television acting debut on “Sex and the City,” opposite Sarah Jessica Parker, his career eventually took off. The “A Star Is Born” actor still values his family as much as he did back then, despite his notoriety and several awards.
His father Charles and mother Gloria have always been very encouraging of his profession. That’s why he returned to their house after his father was ill in 2011 so that he could spend more time with him.
The New York Times feature on Cooper highlighted a heartwarming interaction he had with his father as he lay dying. Cooper, who passed away in 2011 from cancer, claimed that he hugged his father until his last breath, at which moment everything changed.
Cooper spent more time with his family when his father died, to the point that he stopped going with Gloria, his mother, when she left the house.
Cooper said that he had been residing in the same house as his mother in a 2013 interview.
“My family and I are quite close, so losing my dad was devastating for all of us. He admitted that there had been a schism, and its effects were still being felt. And we depend on one another. then, here we are. Don’t get me wrong, though. It is not without difficulties. It’s not like she lives in the guesthouse and I live in a complex. No. She is in the room beyond.
