Bradley Cooper opens up about his drug problems

Before his career could really take off, Bradley Cooper was addicted to cocaine. The actor is now open and honest about his drug and alcohol addiction.

Hollywood star Bradley Cooper has spoken publicly about his past drug problems. At the beginning of his career, he felt “lost” and fought against his inner demons, the 47-year-old said in a new episode of the “SmartLess” podcast.

In 2004, Cooper first realized “that I had a problem with drugs and alcohol.” He explained, “I was addicted to cocaine.” In addition, there were physical problems and the fact that he initially did not find a connection in Los Angeles. “Shortly after I got fired from Alias, I tore my Achilles tendon.” After leaving the US series, he had “zero self-esteem”.

“It’s not crazy, it’s just the truth”

The first “Hangover” film, which he shot at the age of 36, brought about a big change. “I had to go through all of these things before fame even played a role in my day-to-day existence,” Cooper said.
