Bradley Cooper has had a lot of success in Hollywood since starting his career in the late ’90s. Now, he is one of the world’s highest paid actors and has done everything from romantic comedies to dramas to action, and has become one of the most lusted after men in the industry along the way. Now, Bradley Cooper has been in the spotlight for almost 20 years, but there is still so much more to know about the star! Here are 10 things not widely known about him:

10. School

Bradley Cooper is so much more than just another pretty face, and in fact focused a lot more on his education than his acting career in his teens and early twenties. Cooper is fluent in French and attended Georgetown University which he graduated with honors with an English degree. For most of his time in school he focused on athletics until he applied for his master’s at the Actors Studio Drama School in New York and was accepted. Despite a long interest in acting, Cooper always contemplated getting his Ph.D. in English in order to teach literature.

9. Botched Audition

Over the years Cooper has had many successful roles which has resulted in four Oscar nominations, and several other wins for his work, but he hasn’t exactly nailed every audition. Back in 2009 Cooper was one of the top actors up for the role of Green Lantern, and as we all know now Ryan Reynolds was the one who got the role, and that is because Cooper couldn’t stop himself from doing Christian Bale’s Batman voice in the audition. “I couldn’t not do Christian Bale’s Batman when I was doing the audition. I don’t know what it was! I put a mask on and the director was like, ‘Okay Bradley, be regular and talk.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, got it….[in a deep voice] listen, Sally we’re going to have to take you family away if you don’t listen to me!’ By the way, that’s the worst Batman impression ever. I apologize.”
