Bradley Cooper was quite the wild child it seems.
The actor has admitted that there’s a hint of scandal behind those gorgeous blue eyes and despite landing himself in trouble when he was younger, he has always been honest with his parents.
Raised in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania the 37-year-old ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ actor credits his parents for keeping him on the right path.
He told Esquire magazine: "I grew up in an interesting family. My father was Irish, and my mother was Italian. It's a rich tapestry. It's soaking in volatility. But I was raised well. I put them through some hell, of course. I got arrested [for underage drinking] when I was 15.”
But Brad – who is dating actress Zoe Saldana - has been sober since the age of 29.
He continued: "My mom [Gloria] always said, 'Just call me. I wanna know where you are. We always had good lines of communication, me and my parents."
His father Charles passed away in early 2011 but he knows owes it to his parent for shaping him into the man he is today.
He revealed: "My father was viciously smart and intellectually curious. We lived across the street from a movie theater. And he would always talk about all these movies, and when I was at the age of being able to appreciate them, he just started throwin' 'em my way.
"He was a huge Tom Courtenay fan. Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner was one of the first ones he showed me. And The Dresser. And Under the Volcano. He loved Albert Finney."
