Would have "zero self esteem": Bradley Cooper was addicted to cocaine

Had “zero self-esteem”
Bradley Cooper was addicted to cocaine

Almost everyone knows him now: Bradley Cooper is one of the most successful actors in Hollywood. But at the beginning of his career he feels very insecure and resorts to a poisonous tool. Today he speaks openly about this difficult time.

US actor Bradley Cooper has spoken publicly about his past drug problems. At the beginning of his career, he felt “so lost,” the 47-year-old said in an episode of the SmartLess podcast released on Tuesday.

. “And I was addicted to cocaine,” he revealed there. There were also physical problems. “Shortly after I got fired from Alias, I tore my Achilles tendon.” After leaving the US series, he had “zero self-esteem”.

Daughter changed his attitude

The first “Hangover” film, which he shot at the age of 36, brought about a big change. In addition, the birth of his daughter further improved his attitude towards himself. “You have that wonderful experience or that breakthrough with a script, or you have a wonderful moment on set or in the editing room (…) But you have about 40 moments every day with your kid that mean that level of joy. That’s no gimmicks, that’s just the truth.” Cooper’s daughter with model Irina Shayk was born in 2017.

Their relationship ended in 2019, but the model and actor are raising their daughter, three-year-old Lea de Seine, separately – yet together. “I’ve never understood what the term co-parenting means,” Shayk told Elle a year ago. “When I’m with my daughter, I’m 100 percent her mom, and when she’s with her dad, he’s 100 percent her dad. Co-parenting is parenting.” She also only finds positive words for Cooper’s dad qualities: “He’s the most amazing father.”
