Male on Monday -- Bradley Cooper

Welcome to Male on Monday! Today Harlequin author and Pink Heart Society editor Jeannie Watt offers up some information on actor and producer Bradley Cooper

Bradley Charles Cooper was born in Philadelphia in 1975 and grew up in Pennsylvania. He attended Georgetown University where he graduated, with honors, in 1997 with a BA in English. He was a member of a rowing team and became fluent in French when he spent six months as an exchange student in Aix-en-Provence, France. Bradley received a MFA in acting from Actors Studio Drama School in New York. While attending he worked as a hotel doorman. 
His professional acting career started with a small role in Sex and the City in 1999. Over the next ten years, he was cast in many television shows and movies, including Alias, Kitchen Confidential, Failure to Launch and Wedding Crashers

In 2009, he starred in the hugely popular movie, The Hangover, which boosted his career, and  won a Razzie Award for his role in All About Steve. His All About Steve co-star, Sandra Bullock, also won a Razzie shortly after winning her Oscar. 

Bradley has since received several Oscar nominations himself--Silver Linings Playbook (Best Actor 2012), American Hustle (Best Supporting Actor 2013)  and American Sniper (Best Actor 2014). He's the tenth person ever to be nominated for an Oscar for three consecutive years.
In addition to acting, Bradely was recognized by GQ UK Magazine as the 2011 International Man of the Year and People Magazine chose him as the 2011 Sexiest Man Alive. Go Bradley!  Personally I think he should join Paul Newman, Steve McQueen and Frank Sinatra in the Blue Eyes Hall of Fame. Just look at those eyes!

I fell in love with Bradley while watching Silver Linings Playbook. How about  you. Do you have a favorite Bradley Cooper movie?
