Why Bradley Cooper Still Lives With His Mom Even Though He Could Easily Buy Her a House

year ago

Despite having millions of dollars and being 48, Bradley Cooper still prefers living with his mom. However, it’s not only because of comfort, as a family tragedy is involved. In any case, the actor is blessed with a fantastic mother, and we’re happy that their bond only gets stronger every day.

His mom introduced him to the world of entertainment.


When Bradley Cooper was a kid, his dad, Charles Cooper, worked as a stockbroker, and his mom, Gloria Campano, was a newscaster for an NBC affiliate in Pennsylvania. His mom’s job got him interested in the industry, so while he was in high school, he followed his mom’s same path and got a job at the Philadelphia Daily News.

Later, Cooper’s father got diagnosed with lung cancer, and he immediately moved to his parents’ house. The actor also decided to stop acting for a while to spend more time with his dad. The star tried everything he could to save his dad’s life and wanted to show him how much he cared for him. “With my father, it brought us together in a way that I didn’t even think was possible,” he recollects.

Campano was devastated by the loss.

5 months later, his father passed away. His mom was close to her husband, and the loss hit her hard. Since Cooper and his family have always been close-knit, so he asked his mom to come live with him in his place in Los Angeles.

The actor got candid about his relationship with his mom, and it’s indeed the best relationship anyone could wish for. “We need each other. But don’t get me wrong. It’s not without complications. It’s not like I live in a compound, and she’s in the guesthouse. She’s in the next room. But here’s the thing: She’s a cool chick. We can hang, and she can roll with the punches. If that wasn’t the case, there’s no way,” said the actor.

Cooper’s girlfriend gets along with his mom too.

Rumor has it Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk broke up due to conflicts with his mom. However, it can’t be further from the truth. Shayk got along incredibly with Cooper’s mom — they were planning a vacation together! At the moment, Cooper and Shayk have gotten back together again, and their relationship is alive and kicking.

They have an incredibly strong bond.

Cooper and his mom still live together, even after 12 years, because they depend on each other. Campano was heartbroken after losing her partner, but having her son around makes it easier for her to cope.

Being a mother is no picnic, especially due to many misconceptions about childbearing and upbringing. It certainly takes a lot of inner patience and optimism to go through it all. In any case, having a close-knit family is a blessing, these people can vouch for that. You get to recreate your childhood photos and make cool tweets about the funny things your kids said.
