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.

Now we’re getting to the stragglers of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. These are the celebs who didn’t jump in right away with simple, easily executed entries. The ones who waited have been going the extra mile to bring attention to the ALS cause. Like Chris Evans in a suit or Cumby’s amazing anthology video. I’m not even a Cumberbitch (sorry, Kaiser!), but Cumby has the best celebrity entry out there. He struck a fine line between honoring the charity, delivering a wet t-shirt for ...
