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.
"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.
"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.
