Bradley Cooper had suicidal thoughts on 'Alias'

Dec 18 2013, 2:34pm CST | by

Los Angeles, Dec 19 (IANS) Actor Bradley Cooper says the lack of screentime on crime-fighting TV series "Alias" made him want to kill himself as he was also suffering with addictions to alcohol and drugs.

Los Angeles, Dec 19 — Actor Bradley Cooper says the lack of screentime on crime-fighting TV series "Alias" made him want to kill himself as he was also suffering with addictions to alcohol and drugs.

The 38-year-old featured on the show as Will Tippin, but he grew frustrated as his role became less and less prominent, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I would only work three days a week. And then for the second season, I got even more sidelined. I was like, 'Ugh.' And then next thing you know, I was like, 'I want to f*****g kill myself,'" Cooper said in an interview.

"The Hangover" actor eventually asked creator J.J. Abrams to write him out of the series, despite having no other jobs lined up.

"J.J. was like, 'OK.' He probably would've fired me, anyway," he said.

The actor even considered giving up his Hollywood career, and said: "At some point, you have to come to terms with, 'The business just doesn't want you', you know what I mean?"

However, he decided to give it another shot and made a conscious decision to get his personal life in order so that he could focus on his craft.

"If I continued it (drinking and using drugs), I was really going to sabotage my whole life."

Cooper forced himself to get sober and after kicking his bad habits, he knew he made the right choice.

"I was doing these movies, and I got to meet Sandra Bullock (on 'All About Steve') and meet these people and work with them. And I'm sober, and I'm like, 'Oh, I'm actually myself.

"And I don't have to put on this air to be somebody else, and this person still wants to work with me? Oh, what the f**k is that about?' I was rediscovering myself in this workplace, and it was wonderful," Cooper said.

When Bradley Cooper stopped by The Tonight Show on Friday, he and Jimmy Fallon ended up with a serious case of the giggles, and they just couldn't get it together. The pair played Egg Russian Roulette, and all the flying yolk had them cracking up, but they couldn't stop laughing during the sit-down interview, either. For one thing, they were sporting that silly visor look Bradley debuted earlier this month. And fo ...

Yesterday, photos of Renee Zelwegger looking very different from how we remember her made the rounds online, and it's easy to see why. This wasn't a simple case of dramatic weight loss or Botox gone wrong. The former rom-com queen legitimately looked like a different person. Concerned Zellweger fans clamored for an explanation: Had Renee simply had a lot of work done? Is there some issue with her health ...

Protecting Unauthorized Posting Of Nude Photos

Oct 20 2014 12:27am CDT | Source: CBS Philly

By Amy E. Feldman PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Think you don’t have so much in common with Jennifer Lawrence (other than your shared ability to shoot a bullseye and your history of kissing Bradley Cooper, of course. Who hasn’t done that?) Turns out that 13% of adults have had private content shared without their consent. So Jennifer Lawrence’s legal travails involving the nude pictures of her that were hacked and then posted on a porn site should be a lesson to y ...
