Bradley Cooper was named the 2011 Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine and is one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood. Cooper has appeared in Limitless with Robert De Niro and Sex and the City, where he got his first big break after acting school.
According to Wikipedia, Bradley Cooper was born in Philadelphia to an Italian-American mother and an Irish-American father. Cooper was raised in a Catholic household and graduated from Georgetown University in 1997. During college, Cooper was an exchange student in France and became fluent before earning an MFA from the Actors Studio in New York in 2000.
Cooper has an All-American blue-eyed, blonde hair appeal and a tall athletic build. His baby blue eyes and curly blond hair make him a naturally attractive man. He is frequently listed in various women’s magazines as an ideal boyfriend choice for his looks.
Cooper married actress Jennifer Esposito in 2006 but divorced a year later. Since then, the actor has been romantically linked to Renee Zellweger and Jennifer Lopez. At the time he was named the Sexiest Man Alive, Cooper said that he was single. While Cooper’s fans were thrilled he earned the title, they were shocked that Ryan Gosling fans protested on the Internet and on the streets.
Since graduating from acting school, Cooper has appeared in a number of roles. After Sex and the City he landed a guest role on Alias with Jennifer Garner. In 2001, he appeared in Wet Hot American Summer and Failure to Launch in 2006. His most well known film to date is The Hangover.
In 2012, Cooper starred with Zoe Saldana in The Words, Hit and Run and The Place Beyond The Pines.
