15 Years In The Life Of Bradley Cooper

Bradley Cooper

Happy 37th Birthday, Bradley Cooper!

What a year it has been for you!

Being named People Magazine‘s “Sexiest Man Alive” (sorry, Gosling), breaking up with Renée Zellweger, fake flirting with Jennifer Lopez, shacking up with Zoe Saldana, losing your father, wooing the world with your fluency in French, and starring in “The Hangover Part II.”

While Ryan Gosling fans may want to see you dead, we here at Business Insider celebrate you!  All of you: from your flowing locks to your poor judgment in starring in “All About Steve.”

Now, let’s take a look at how Cooper went from nerdy camp counselor to Hollywood’s “A-Team.”

1997: Cooper graduates from the honours English program at Georgetown University and moves to New York City, where he enrolls in the Masters of Fine Arts program at the Actors Studio Drama School at New School University.

2007: Cooper gives us our first real glimpse of his abs after joining the fifth season of Nip/Tuck as sexy TV star, Aidan Stone. He just can't seem to keep his clothes on for the camera.

Is Bradley Cooper related to any other Hollywood heartthrobs?
