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.”

    Its so tiresome all these 30 something HW skirt chasers and hounds repeat the same mantra in their interviews.
    Actions speak louder than words Bradley & Leo.

    Good thing he’s dating a child who has many baby making years ahead of her.

    If you want a baby get an older gf.

    He’d better get moving

    He ain’t getting any younger

  • niki

    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

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

  • Cece

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

  • mh

    @ace11: It’s Hollywood he will be 65 with a 25 yrd old pregnant wife.

  • L

    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

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

  • Amy

    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

    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

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

  • elodieee

    lolely boy!

  • @L

    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

    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.

  • Juytre

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

  • A

    @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?

  • Queenie


    “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

    @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.

  • Dani

    @@L: Are you saying he cheated on Zoe Saldana?

  • Dani

    @Queenie: I’ve never seen photos/videos of him kissing Zoe Saldana, other than that shot from the movie ‘The Words’. Where are these photos?

  • Avery

    What a like about him is he actually went to college , a Ivy League college, has a degree , unlike most in Hollywood who talk about everything with authority , want to get involved in our political lives but barely finished high school Or get some fake degree given to them once their famous, HELLO ASHLY JUDD…..dresses well , a hollywood star shouldn’t look like a hobo or wear a ball cap all the time .good looking and seems like a nice guy, also knows that this is all bullsh@t , one day there calling you sexiest alive , the next one hit wonder….and sweet that he knows his mom and family are what truly matters in life. Not many men besides, rich famous, single would let a grieving mom who doesn’t want to alone live with them for a while instead of setting them up somewhere.

  • TRR


    Latest Blind reveals she caught him in bed with another woman.

    @Quennie there are zero pics of him kissing Zoe publicly to my knowledge.

  • Queenie


    Google images has pics of him kissing Zoe. Fan sites have gifs and videos of him with Zoe and Renee. NOT photoshopped.

  • TRR

    @Queenie: You have a link/s for fan sites?

  • Queenie


    Sorry I don’t. I know about the gifs and vids because I have friends who are huge fans and they sent them to me. You could try looking on Tumblr. There’s one Tumblr site I know called box blocked (Just Jared is making it two words it’s only one) that seems to have a lot of less seen photos of Bradley as well as gifs and videos.

  • Dani

    @TRR: Sorry, but I have a hard time believing that blind item.

  • TRR

    @Dani: I don’t. It’s pretty known that he cheats. You only think he f*cks the women we see him publicly “date”?

  • Connie

    @TRR….., if his mother been living with him since his father died 2 years ago, how could Zoe catch him cheating, he was either hooking up at her house or hotels, no one night stand at home for Zoe to walk in on….Your little blind isn’t real…., He broke up with Zoe because she was clingy and her team was exploiting the relationship … do agree that he has a lot of flings , even with famous actresses..I friend of a friend screwed him while he was in Canada , so I know isn’t gay but she did say he’s a emotional guy, but this was a few years ago., maybe he’s colder now.

  • Tom

    If his agent only speeks the truth to him… Then I hope they tell him to ditch the English chick.. People keep going on about the age difference but it’s really because she’s so average looking and dresses like a loser, they can’t get why he would date her & and so publicly , if she was some super model no one besides a few annoying girls would say sh?t , just look a Leo…. Bradley get rid of a slag she ruining you rep, people can forgive a lot but not a Hollywood hunk dating a ugly nobody , makes then think he must be gay , why else date her.

  • TRR

    @Connie: First off, it isn’t my blind item. lol
    Second, the blind says she came home early with his mom from lunch. So unexpected.This is a reveal not people guesses. btw. A previous reveal says they did f*ck at his/her home and hotels. He does it with several women. So yeah, he’s a big cheat.

    Point is, he’s a horny scumbag.

  • funny witch

    TRR, can you copy there this blind item or give site address? when it happened?

  • Juicy Lucy

    @Tom: @TRR:

    Brad has always said that he does not listen to what his PR people tell him to do. I doubt very much if he would listen to anything his manager had to say about the women he dates. Suki is a downgrade from Zoe and Renee. She’s nothing more than a fame***** who is more famous for being associated with famous friends and boyfriends (both of whom have commented on how young she is). I think Suki is using Brad to gain contacts who can help further her career in modeling/films here in the US and Brad is using her for an on demand booty call. When it comes to sex, I don’t think Brad discriminates. His cheating and temper have been commented on for years. Personally, I don’t see Brad getting married again. If he can’t be faithful to any of his gf’s, what makes him think he can be faithful to a wife.

  • TRR

    I forgot to mention that I believe the BI is alluding to the first time they were together. Not the second go around.

  • Juicy Lucy

    @Connie: Zoe and Brad broke up twice-the first time was due to the fact that Zoe wanted Brad to date her exclusively and he didn’t want to do that.

  • Juicy Lucy

    @TRR: I took it that way as well. They broke up the first time because Brad didn’t want to date Zoe exclusively. I have read that he wasn’t faithful to Renee, either. While I think Brad does have some very admirable traits, but I don’t see him being a faithful husband.

  • Queenie

    @Juicy Lucy

    I’m not sure how Suki could be an “on demand booty call” for Bradley when she lives in London and he’s in the U.S. most of the time. Seems to me phone sex is the only booty Bradley would be getting from that distance. :)

  • Connie

    @TRR .. Sorry doesn’t seem believable that his mother and girlfriend go out to lunch, and his first play is to bring a girl home to screw, even if they came home early.. And blinds are usually BS, just another form of celebrity blogging without a site paying for pictures .
    @juciy Lucy… Don’t think it”s the banging of the girl or the booty call, his agent should ask , why he is so public about it, he has been around the industry a long time, knows how to keep stuff on the down low , especially booty calls, and her ” friends” were talking to Radar long before she was seen in Boston, weird that’s he’s allowing himself to get used by a famwh$re booty call, and weird that he’s going against his usual m.o, keeping everything tight with a new girlfriend/ bootycall, especially when he’s getting nothing but bad publicity out of the deal.

  • Harvey

    Really!!!!!!!!!! Crazy Days and Nights.. I know for a fact that site is complete rubbish .. Can’t believe people really believe what’s posted on that site , sad sacks.

  • Nick

    Skimming through JJ, and noticed both Cooper and DiCaprio on the same page and both posts are magazines covers, damn DiCaprio looks like azz compared to Cooper and aren’t they both 38 years old, Leo looks like a 50 years old business guy and not a leading man A list actor, while Cooper looks good, could mistake him for a model, I’m a guy a can see that.

  • blunt talker

    Bradley is moving up in Hollywood to be a serious acting talent like Daniel Day Lewis. He’s proving himself to be a force in the movie business. If he becomes a dad later in life, he will have plenty of company. Michael Douglas is 25 years older than Cathering and they have 2 children. His remarriage and children happened in his fifties. They are still together. If Bradley decides to get married and have a family, it should be his own time and choosing. This is a very serious step in one’s life, and should not be taken without careful thought. If he doesn’t ever get married or have children, I will still like and respect him an actor and person. Watching him grow into a great thespian has been wonderful to see.

    Alas, like virtually all HW actors I do believe Bradley Cooper is a class A bullshiter. I think the hypocrisy he has shown by dating this very young girl is a glaring sign of that. I remember watching him in a couple of Howard Stern interviews, he didn’t skip a beat when HS asked him about the “bro-code”, but there are numerous rumours about him being a cheater. In another interview he actually offered up the rumours of him being gay – not bi but gay – as a topic of discussion, again there a numerous rumours about him liking both men and women. There’s no doubt he’s a bright boy, but he lies and is very good at word play. You also get the sense that he tries to be too clever for his own good and trips himself up. I have to say, during the promotion of SLP he came across as a lovely guy, it was almost too good to be true. That’s because it wasn’t true. The Suki situation has shown us that. As far as I can see most successful HW actors are like snake oil salesmen – never ever to trusted.

  • Weil

    Numerous rumors… What does that mean, how does that help make your argument , what celebrity especially A list isn’t there dozens of rumors a day about…Cooper has had girlfriends in high school , college, had as many long term relationships and flings…. Would you knock it off with the stupid gay crap… I’m convinced it either girls that console themselves with ah he’s gay or gay men who like to pretend every dude in Hollywwod is gay ..” If only society were more excepting they would all come out of the closet”…. When it becomes beyond obvious that someone’s not gay.. So they throw in the oh he’s bi.. As if a heterosexual guy will banging guys , sorry bi is just a gay guy .

  • http://P ????

    That’s my opinion. When the mood takes him i think he’s open to offers from both sides of the fence.
