    Bradley Cooper Career

    Initial Stages of a Promising Career

    Bradley Cooper’s movie journey started with a comedy called ‘Wet Hot American Summer’. He was later casted as Will Tippin in a TV series called ‘Alias’, and then in a romantic movie called ‘Bending All the Rules’.

    After 2002, he was getting roles in movies and TV series consistently, but nothing ground breaking was happening for him, until he got a unique role in ‘The Wedding Crashers’. He was casted as Sack Lodge in the comedy.

    The quirky appeal of Bradley’s very-aggressive character really reached out to the audience, and the eventual success of the movie proved very fruitful in the end. Bradley started getting leading roles in the movies and audience started loving him.

    Real Success

    Despite his success, Bradley Cooper movies were still not considered a major box office draw. But it all changed very quickly with ‘The Hangover’, which was released in 2009.

    Although his acting was appreciated, his persona as an arrogant yet loveable ‘sexy man’ gained him the real admiration, especially from the female fans. Bradley even got an MTV award because of his performance in the movie.

    But just like success, he was also tasting failures with movies like Sandra Bullock/Cooper starrer ‘All About Steve’, which was annihilated by the critics. But still, Bradley remained a popular fixture in multi-starrer movies like ‘Valentine’s Day’, and his reputation as a bankable actor remained untarnished.

    Even WWE fans got a glimpse of Bradley Cooper in an appearance inside the ring in the 2010 edition of WWE Raw. 

    Evolution as an Actor

    The evolution of Bradley Cooper as an actor was complete with ‘Limitless’. It was a deep and intense role with wide shades of emotions. The movie was expected to be a critical success, but due to the mainstream appeal and curiosity generated by Bradley, it became a commercial success.

    2012 was arguably Bradley Cooper’s most busy year with high-profile movies like ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, ‘Hit and Run’, ‘The Words’ and ‘The Place Beyond the Pines’. Deep-layered performances by Bradley really impressed the critics who, especially in the beginning, believed him to be a one-dimensional actor.

    Bradley Cooper Journey after 2012

    After 2012, Bradley Cooper was considered to be an established Hollywood superstar. His movies mostly did well, but there were some critical and commercial failures along the way.

    The final installment of Hangover Trilogy ‘The Hangover Part III’ was released in 2013. It was criticized by the reviewers, but still became a commercial success, which says a lot about the appeal of ‘Cooper the Star’.

    Personally, I’ve made myself a very small window of what I enjoy in this business, which is I love being a big part of the storytelling process.


    I liked sports but I never really had the confidence. I was always coordinated and it came easy to me, but I didn’t have the confidence to go along with the physical skill.


    Some directors have just one way of working; you either have to adhere to it or you don’t.


    There’s got to be something you want to tell and that’s the engine which spurs all of the work you have to do in order to create the story, but you have to love some sort of nugget of what you’re telling to be a filmmaker.
