“Maestro” leading actor Bradley Cooper has emerged as a benevolent figure in Hollywood. In 2017, Brad Pitt openly shared his journey with Alcoholics Anonymous, a pivotal step in transforming his life. Pitt’s dedication, coupled with the support of friends, led to a significant role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” earning him an Oscar in 2020. During the awards season, Pitt expressed gratitude to Cooper for his instrumental role in his sobriety journey, acknowledging him during an award acceptance from the National Board of Review.

Pitt remarked, “Thank you, Bradley. Bradley just put his daughter to bed and then rushed over to do this. He’s a sweetheart. I got sober because of this guy, and every day has been happier since. I love you. Thank you.” Cooper, who shares a daughter with ex Irina Shayk, has most recently been associated with supermodel Gigi Hadid.

Ben Affleck also found solace in the support of Bradley Cooper while confronting his own battle with alcohol addiction. In a 2020 interview with The New York Times, Affleck credited Cooper (alongside Robert Downey Jr.) as an individual to whom he feels immense gratitude for their unwavering support.

Having maintained sobriety for 19 years, Cooper disclosed in 2012 that his decision to get sober stemmed from a fear that drinking would “ruin” his life. Reflecting on this period, he emphasized, “I don’t drink or do drugs anymore. I realized I wasn’t going to live up to my potential, and that scared the hell out of me.”

Cooper’s own wake-up call came in 2004 from actor Will Arnett during a dinner party. Arnett confronted Cooper about his behavior, marking the first time Cooper acknowledged his struggles with drugs and alcohol. This conversation set him on a transformative path, with Cooper recognizing Arnett as the catalyst for change.

In another incident, when actress Brooke Shields experienced a grand mal seizure, Bradley Cooper was there to lend a helping hand. Shields, in a vulnerable moment, expressed her gratitude, recalling Cooper’s support at the restaurant L’Artusi. Cooper, who happened to be nearby, rushed to her aid after receiving a call from an assistant. Their connection, dating back to the 2008 film “Midnight Meat Train,” added a surreal touch to the experience, as Shields described feeling like she walked in with a savior, equating it to walking in with Jesus.
