Handsome is an understatement. Talented doesn't do him justice. Bradley Cooper is an on-screen superstar with remarkable roles on his resume and a future that's filled with promise. Currently starring in and directing A Star is Born with leading lady Lady Gaga, Cooper is receiving well-deserved acclaim for his award-worthy work. Here's more to learn about the ever-charming and always-cool Cooper.
Sorry Ladies, He's Taken
While Cooper isn't married, he has been romantically linked to Russian-born model Irina Shayk since 2015. The two have a baby girl named Lea De Seine and they seem to have a romance that has "Hollywood" written all over it. Cooper was married previously to actress Jennifer Esposito, but the relationship was short-lived – just a year. Will Cooper tie the knot for a second go-round? Shayk is quite the catch, so we expect Cooper to say "I do" to the model mom. Hearts across the world are collectively aching…sigh.
With his ice-blue eyes, sexy scruffy 'do, and masculine energy, Cooper is the camera's best friend. He exudes an energy that jumps off the screen yet draws us in at the same time. His boy-next-door smile makes fans swoon and his passion is palpable. It's no wonder why casting pros have placed him in some of today's most notable roles. Comedy, action, romance, or drama, Cooper's versatility is impressive. Box office smashes are Cooper's forte and A Star is Born is already a blockbuster.
Dressed to Impress
Like any A-list actor, looking the part comes with the territory. Rugged and relaxed or done-up and dapper, Cooper always comes off as runway-ready. Check out some of the actors A+ looks.

Once upon a time, wearing a graphic tee with an image of a beefed up, spikey-haired anime boy was considered lame. Now, it's legit streetwear.
Over the past few years, anime has grown from a hyper-niche, oftentimes derided interest in the West to a medium just on the border of mainstream. Along the anime boom in fashion, Hollywood studios have been scrambling to buy the licenses to every anime franchise they can. But that doesn't mean anime is new to Hollywood––some celebrities have been vocal about their love of anime for years.
Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan has publicly touted his anime preferences for ages. Kanye West is a big anime fan, too, citing Akira as one of his greatest creative influences. His music video for "Stronger" stands in testament, featuring imagery ripped directly from the classic anime film.
Happy birthday to the world's biggest genre
On this day in 1973, Clive Campbell, the Jamaican-American "selector" known as DJ Kool Herc, hosted a "back to school jam" at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Boogie Down Bronx of New York City.
Armed with a booming sound system and reggae beats, Herc– a shortened nickname for "Hercules"– commanded insatiable audiences across the South Bronx with his unique looping technique called the "Merry-Go Round." "[I knew that] they were waiting for this particular break," Herc later said, "and I got a couple of records that got the same break up in it. I wonder how it would be if I put them all together."
