Bradley Cooper Covers Esquire's Summer Issue

Bradley Cooper Covers Esquire's Summer Issue

Bradley Cooper suits up for the cover of Esquire‘s Summer Issue, on newsstands May 30.

Here’s what the 36-year-old Hangover star had to share with the mag:

On his other movie, Limitless: “Since [it] opened, my agent calls me every morning and asks, ‘Do you fell any different?’ And I’m like, ‘Nope. Do you feel any different?’”

On his mother, whom he brought to live with him in L.A. after his dad passed away: “I love having her. I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Bradley also recalled coming across Leonardo DiCaprio when he used to work as a doorman in his twenties!

Bradley, who covered the graveyard shift at the Morgans Hotel in NYC, shared that he ferried Leo up to his room one evening and remembered thinking they were “worlds apart” – Titanic had just come out, while Bradley was enrolled at the Actors Studio.

    Oh my God…so there’s nothing new nowadays ??!
    It”s a copycat of a Steve McQueen photo, but less focussed on his face, and much more gross with that hand on his crotch…

  • *Angieee*

    Wow real subtle there. WTF is up with the random arms

  • Boo

    I am IN LOVE with Bradley Cooper. I think he is so handsome and has the nicest smile.

  • lily

    old ladies??WTF??

  • Went

    They can dress him up but still looks unpolished. They can place the ladies all around but still has a secret.

  • J

    whatever happened to the story aniston’s peeps were trying to fabricate about him running to her after his break up with zellweger? HAH, once again aniston is caught in a shameless lie, trying to make believe she’s desirable. no one in their right mind would run to her, more like run the F ck away from her!!

  • anoymous

    He has one, only 1 hit movie that he opened on his own and he thinks he’s the hot stuff now. Also I think he has no sex appeal, totally gay.

  • runnergirl

    Sounds sweet at first but a man who has his mom live with him is odd. No woman wlll be good enough for him with mama around telling him how perfect he is. Would you want to date a man that lives with his mom?? Mama’s boy.

  • truth

    Sorry but no one will care after the hangover2 Bradly. Don’t buy in to it.

  • Chris

    @runnergirl: You are judging him and calling him a “Mama’s boy” for bringing his mom to his house? Well, let’s read the complete quote, shall we?

    “His father passed away this year. He moved in with his parents in his hometown, Philadelphia, for his final five months. He took his father to an Eagles playoff game on a Sunday and he died the following Saturday. On Cooper’s right hand he wears his father’s wedding ring. He has brought his mother to live with him in his new home in Los Angeles.”

    “I love having her,” he says. “I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

    How bad do you feel now? Pretty bad? Okay, good. Stop judging people for half-assed quotes.

  • Bradley Cooper is a HOT guy…

    …but d a m n. They could have told him to do something else with his arms on the cover. Maybe pretend to fix his tie or something or put them in his pockets. Anything would have been better then the current awkward pose.

  • kiki

    that was a cute leo story. now hes famous enough to party with him on a private plane like he did few weeks ago. hard work paid off for him!

  • lola

    he is so hot.. Im 18 and find him sooo attractive lol

  • Lalalove


  • Marieme

    Sellout! What a stupid and cheesy cover.

  • Aniston WHo?

    Kudos to thinking more about Mom than those selfish greedy don’t care about family because I’m successful now…In my books you are one hot, classy guy!!!

  • http://JustJared Jan

    Yup, the cover’s cheesy. Bad choice. He should be photographed with his dogs cuz that’s who he is apparently. His mom should be living near him, not with him. Good gawd. How can you have a healthy relationship with a woman when mommy’s there for him at the end of the day? I think he’s immature and he talks about his career way too much, and not much else.

  • jules

    This is the most awkward cover of anything, ever.

    I still love him.

  • Sheri

    All of you bashing Bradley because his mom is living with him … shame on you. I’m sure this is a temporary situation until his mom has had some time to heal. For him to get her and move her into his home says a great deal about his character as a man … and that even makes him more sexy. Believe me, I’d date him even if his mom was there!

  • British Latin American

    Bradley looks so handsome and distinguished. I’m glad for his success, and I hope it continues. A couple of years ago he wasn’t looking so good, but now he’s beautiful. As a joke: Victor Garber must be kicking himself now.
