Bradley Cooper is an Oscar-nominated American actor and filmmaker who made his first on-camera debut in "Sex and the City" in 1999. He would pursue other roles in film and television during the early 2000s, including shows like "The Street" and "Jack & Bobby" and movies such as "Wet Hot American Summer" and "Carnival Knowledge." Moreover, he played Will Tippin on the spy-action network television show "Alias" between 2001 and 2006.
His role on "Alias" was demoted, and he was eventually fired from the show, leading Cooper to doubt continuing his career in the industry and develop an addiction to drugs and alcohol, primarily cocaine. Cooper claims that his late twenties through mid-thirties were focused on his sobriety, raising his daughter, and continuing his career in acting. However, he gained recognition for his support role in the critically acclaimed comedy film "Wedding Crashers," but his first major breakout was in the 2009 comedy "The Hangover" and its subsequent two sequels in 2011 and 2013.
Following the "Hangover" series, Cooper received leading roles and recognition in several Hollywood blockbusters such as "Silver Linings Playbook," "American Hustle," "American Sniper," and "A Star Is Born." All of Cooper's films have grossed over $11 billion, and he has been ranked one of the world's highest-paid actors for multiple years. Cooper is a highly decorated actor with two Grammy Wards, a British Academy Film Award, and has received nine Academy Award nominations, six Golden Globe Awards, and a Tony Award.
Recently, Cooper has been tied to Hillary Clinton's top aide, Human Abedin, after being introduced by Vogue editor Anna Wintour. The pair have reportedly been seeing each other for several months but have chosen to keep things quiet. Abedin is the ex-wife to disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner.
