Bradley Cooper: I Want To Be A Father One Day!

Bradley Cooper: I Want To Be A Father One Day!

Bradley Cooper is super suave on the cover of Details magazine’s May 2013 issue, on newsstands April 23.

Here’s what the 38-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On wanting to be a dad: “Of course I have (thought about it). I really hope I have that experience in my life. I saw how much joy fatherhood gave my own dad. So I hope it’s part of my journey. You go through stages in your life, and fatherhood seems like a natural stage.”

On living with his mom: “The best way I can answer that is to say we’re surviving. Both of us. Let’s face it: It’s probably not easy for her, by the way, to be living with her son. It’s life. And right now, two years after my father’s death, this is where we are. My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us. It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped. And we need each other. So here we are. But don’t get me wrong. It’s not without complications. It’s not like I live in a compound and she’s in the guesthouse. No. She’s in the next room. But here’s the thing: She’s a cool chick. We can hang, and she can roll with the punches. If that wasn’t the case, there’s no way.”

On his Oscar nomination: “I knew I wasn’t going to win. But something pretty funny happens on the actual night. Even though I knew there was no chance I’d win, the milli-second in between when they open the envelope and they say the name, your brain goes, ‘Wait a minute. It could happen. It’s possible. A one-in-five chance, right?’ And that’s the moment when they have your face on cam- era. And all of a sudden, you’re dealing with the fact that you didn’t get something that you knew you weren’t going to get in the first place. And that reaction shot—I mean, that camera is right there in your face.”

    How can you be a father if you’re scared of commitment?

    Bradley is for sure just would like to have fun by sleeping with all the woman/girls around

    Dee Says:

    @niki: Why do you assume he is afraid of commitment?

    Cece Says:

    I don’t know much about this guy, but he sounds quite intelligent. Such a breath of fresh air in Hollywood!

    Lol what’s with all these scorned ladies around here lol here again kind of defending aanother actor I don’t give 2 sh its about, but goddamn ladies put down all the romantic novels for a bit.
    You’re definition of romantic relationship might not be his, that he dates girls in their 20s or just dates too much(in your opinion) doesn’t change that this might be the way he feels about fatherhood.

    L Says:

    @Dee: because he and Leo date too much lol rme ik at least they’re not abusive or cheating f ucks.

    Amy Says:

    Doesn’t really seem like he’s committed to the idea of being a dad anytime soon, though. He “hopes” it’s part of his journey? Etc etc. Plus he’s dating a 20-year-old, and at that age, no one wants a baby. If he were on the husband and father track, he’d probably be swimming in a slightly older dating pool, so to speak.

    Sammy Says:

    God he’s beautiful, and he’s only 38 please people he has time to be a father, Pitt was in his mid 40′s , Robert Downy Jr , just had a kid at 48…, besides all the old farts having kids in their 50′s and 60′s in Hollywood.

    Roman Says:

    @Amy: I can assure you that young aspiring girl is beyond ready to have a baby with a millionaire A-lister.

    @L Says:

    Bradley and Leo are not ‘cheating f cuks’ LMAO. how little you know. someone call Zoe Saldana. but keep drinking the kool aid. they’ve never cheated, they don’t go carousing and clubbing and picking yup randoms there are NO videos of Leo on youtube with an assortment of women in his car even when he had a girlfriend. oh the stories Gisele and the NY post could tell. But you’re right everyone here is just jelly!

    Ava Says:

    What with he’s dating 20 year olds…..Hello maybe it’s just a fling, and unlike most male celebrities every serious girlfirend he has had were either his age , older or a few years young.. Sh!t give it a break, it’s not like all he has dated were 21 year ol Victoria Secret models.. And damn he looks fine.

    Boy is looking good! Bradley Cooper is handsome as fück.

    A Says:

    @Ava: Well, he jumps on a plane to hang out with her in Paris after only being with her for a month or two. Seems like a lot of hoop-jumping to me for just a fling. And when did he ever hold hands or kiss his other girlfriends in public?

  24. 24
    Queenie Says:


    “When did he ever kiss other girlfriends in public?”

    There are photos and videos of him kissing Zoe Saldana and Renee Zellweger in public.

    Dani Says:

    @Amy: Just because he hasn’t found the right person to marry and have kids with doesn’t mean he is a commitment phobe. He was married before(briefly), so maybe he wants to get it right this time. Does anyone know if he has ever mentioned his sister in interviews? I’m wondering if there is just nothing to say or if she doesn’t like him talking about her.
