As a child he took cello lessons then later went on to show interest in journalism. Acting was always somewhere buried on his inside because as he joined the university, the handsome actor realized there was a strong liking for the stage. Cooper has grown over the years to become a successful Hollywood personality but n the midst of all these fame; he chooses to let private matters remain private.
One thing the American Hustle (2013) actor says he’ll never do is talk about his private life”. We have managed to sort out some juicy details on his personal life. Check out these interesting stuffs as you read along.
Charles John Cooper (father)
Year of Birth: 1940
Month of Death: January 2011 (age 71)
The Silver Linings Playbook (2012) actor lost his dad in January 2017 after a long battle with lung cancer. Charles Cooper had been a stock broker for the Merrill Lynch investment bank but he had dreams aside being in the financial sector. Papa Cooper wanted to be an actor himself but sadly this did not work out. He however considered himself a success as he was able to make his dreams come true through his son.
Nothing has been the same since Bradley lost his dad, if anything; it has made the sexy actor come to appreciate more the value of life. Cooper says he was there as his dad took his last breath and the ‘watershed’ moment has not left him the same ever since. Shortly after his father passed, the A-list actor was quoted saying “I do not want to win an Oscars as it would not change anything”. The handsome star now has a Foundation dedicated to his late father.
Gloria Campano (mother)
Gloria Campano is the proud mother of The Hangover (2009) actor and she was once employed with a local NBC radio. She – like the rest of Cooper’s private life – has been kept away from media scrutiny so there is just little to know about her. One thing we are sure of is that Campano has been in support of her son from day one and now that she is his only parent alive, he is doing his best to keep her happy.
After Charles Cooper passed away, Gloria lived with her son for two years. Till date, they maintain a close relationship which was even stronger after daddy Cooper died. She forever remains a leading lady in the life of the talented actor.
Holly Cooper (elder sister from same parents)
You hardly hear anything about a Cooper sibling right? There is just one other and she is the older one. Growing up as the only two kids, you can already guess that these two are close. As grownups, they still remain tight-knitted as siblings.
Jennifer Esposito (ex-spouse)
Duration of Marriage: December 30, 2006 – November 2007
Date of Birth: April 11, 1973

Cooper has been married only once so far and it was to fellow actor Jennifer Esposito. She made her first appearance in Law and Order (1996) and is also an author and an advocate for health and natural products. In 2006, they got married but they barely stayed together for five months. In May, they filed for a divorce which was only finalized months after.
They cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce and both of them have moved on since then. With Jennifer getting married to British model, Louis Dowler (whom she eventually divorced) and Bradley now a father, they must have a beautiful life going for each of them.
