Bradley Cooper was born on January 5, 1975 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He started his acting career later than most, due to his studies at Georgetown University and New School University. This hottie has both acting skills and brains! His acting career began with a guest role as one of Carrie Bradshaw's hook-ups on the popular show, "Sex and the City." He continued to have guest roles on a variety of television shows, but did not really hit it big until he won the role of Zachary Lodge, the obnoxious, pompous fiance of Rachel McAdams' character in Wedding Crashers. This well-known role made him a household name.
Bradley's fame continued to grow after the film wrapped. He has had more recent roles on both the big and small screens with memorable characters in the television show "Nip/Tuck" and in the films, Yes Man and He's Just That Not Into You. Bradley also found a following after the smash hit, The Hangover.
With his looks, charm, and great acting skills, it looks like Bradley Cooper will continue to make a name for himself in the years to come! Young Hollywood met up with Bradley Cooper at the Breakthrough Awards where he presented an award to his good friend Isla Fisher.
