Bradley Cooper talks about his struggles
Years ago, the actor opened up about his alcohol and drug addiction. After hitting rock bottom in the early 2000s, he decided to turn his life around.
“I don’t drink or do drugs anymore. I remember looking at my life, my apartment, my dogs, and I thought, ‘What’s happening?’ And I realized if I continued, I was really going to sabotage my whole life. I would never be sitting here if I hadn’t quit,” he said.
After getting sober, Cooper dated Jennifer Esposito. But in 2007, their marriage ended. Shortly after, he, reportedly, went out on dates with Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Zoe Zaldana, and Renee Zellweger.
Cooper later dated Irina Shayk. According to OK! magazine, the actor’s friends hoped that the model is the one for him.
