Bradley Cooper Is All Smiles On GQ Cover, Opens Up About His Past Drug Use


ohmyGAHH!! Look at those beautiful eyes.

Bradley Cooper is super-suave on the January cover of GQ magazine. The Silver Linings Playbook actor tells the mag:

On his struggle with drugs and alcohol

“If I continued it, I was really going to sabotage my whole life. I mean it has to have [affected my work]. And to this day, of course, because it’s a life experience. And all I do is bring life experience. That’s all anybody does. It’s inescapable. […] the one thing that I’ve learned in life is the best thing I can do is embrace who I am and then do that to the fullest extent, and then whatever happens, happens. The more steps I do to not do that, the farther I am away from fulfilling any potential I would have. Yes, of course it hindered the work.”

On staying sober in Hollywood

“I was doing these movies, and I got to meet Sandra Bullock and meet these people and work with them. And I’m sober, and I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m actually myself. And I don’t have to put on this air to be somebody else, and this person still wants to work with me? Oh, what the fuck is that about?’ I was rediscovering myself in this workplace, and it was wonderful. Now, in the back of my head, or in a place of my heart of, like, creativity, did I feel utterly fulfilled? Absolutely not. But I was grateful and happy to be working, and filling that void in smaller moments.”

On wanting to quit Alias

“I would only work three days a week. And then for the second season, I got even more sidelined. I was like, ‘Ugh.’ And then next thing you know, I was like, ‘I want to f–king kill myself.'”
