“My mom’s funny because she always thinks everything’s going to be a huge hit.” Bradley Cooper talks to @WillieGeist about his relationship with his mom, “A Star Is Born” success and what his late father would think of where he is now #SundayTODAY pic.twitter.com/gJuczA9sME— TODAY (@TODAYshow) February 8, 2019
Bradley Cooper is getting emotional. The 44-year-old A Star Is Born actor and director recently sat down for an interview with Willie Geist, where he reflected on the movie's recent success, his directorial debut, and what his family thinks of his new career path. While it's no surprise that Bradley's mom, Gloria, is in awe over the movie's fame and eight Oscar nominations and four Grammy nominations, it was Willie's question about Bradley's father that had him choked up. Bradley's father, Charles Cooper, died in 2011 after a battle with lung cancer. When asked about what Charles would think of Bradley's skyrocketed career and directorial path, the actor was at a loss for words. Watch a clip from Bradley's Today interview above, which airs on Feb. 10.
