Bradley Cooper's Quotes About His Dad's Death on Today Show

Bradley Cooper Tears Up About the Death of His Father in an Emotional Interview

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.
