Bradley Cooper Lives With His Mom

Just in case you were wondering why Bradley Cooper's mother is always hanging out with not only Bradley Cooper, but also the women he dates, it is because Bradley moved in with his mom after his father died of cancer two years ago. Bradley says there have been some complications, but that she is a "cool chick." In an interview with Details, Bradley goes on to say that, "My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us. It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped. And we need each other. So here we are but don't get me wrong. It's not without complications. It's not like I live in a compound and she's in the guesthouse. No. She's in the next room. But here's the thing: She's a cool chick. We can hang, and she can roll with the punches. If that wasn't the case, there's no way."

Right there in the next room huh? Yep, she is a cool chick.

Don't you live with your mom Ent?

I think that's kind of nice of him, I'm sure it was devastating for his mom to lose her husband and being alone isn't good for anyone in that situation.

I'm sure it puts a cramp in his style- can't really have a ton of ladies over with mom hanging around!

FSP said...

I wonder if he has Shia Syndrome.

libby said...

So his MOM can roll with BCoop's 'punches', eh?

*shiver*

katydid said...

So I guess Mom was with Zoe when she came home and found him in bed with someone else.
I would call that a "complication"

Libby! Happy Birthday!

I've seen him with her--he has taken her to red carpet events I think--and she seems pretty young and cool to me.
It's unusual, but his circumstances where he has the money to have her be with him and not alone isn't what everyone can do either.

I don't see a problem--hug your Mom when you get home, Enty--I'm sure she's cool too.

phoenix said...

I moved in with my folks and care for them to avoid nursing home placement, but our bedrooms are in separate wings at opposite ends of the house. I could not handle an 8" shared wall being the sole degree of separation between us. No way.

Laura said...

Happy Birthday Libby!!

All about Eve said...

@libby, strange wording right?? Lol

Happy birthday dear libby!!!

Audrey said...

That photo reminds me of that Memorex ad from the 80's. Just needs wind...

phoenix said...

Birthday wishes libby!

Anna Nonymous said...

Happy Birthday Libby!!!
I don't believe that Enty lives with his Mom, I think that's just his cover story. It even sounds like baloney, 300 lbs, 5th divorce or something like that, living in his Mom's basement. Yet he's hobnobbing and talking to celebs? He's an entertainment lawyer living in his Mom's basement? I don't think so. As far as B Coop living with his Mom, I get it given the circumstances. And his Mom probably doesn't want to be alone. A little odd, but understandable.

All about Eve said...

I lived with my mom until I got married, after my stepfather died she needed her kids close so I understand. And yes, it does cramp your style

Dasha said...

There's being a supportive son, and then there's needing to cut the cord. He has enough money that he can build her a separate house on his property, or set her up somewhere close. No reason whatsoever why his mom should be sleeping in the room next to his.

Karen said...

Happy birthday, Libby!!!!!!!!

surfer said...

Happy birthday Libby!

katydid said...

Birthday Wishes Libby, have a great day!

libby said...

Aw, GORSH!!!!!

Lotta remembered first I think! I am touched, everybody, thanks.

My heart is WARMED. aw....


My BF took the day off, and it's more of a present for me to be ALONE today...but I can't tell him that. of course!

rejectedcarebear said...

Happy name day Libby!!!

Happy Birthday and many, many more!!

My BIL perfect Steven lives with his mom. He sleeps on the couch and she sleeps in the bedroom. They also eat out together every night and travel together. Did I mention that even though he makes seven figuresb a year he is still unwed at 52

Kimberly said...

Happy day of birth

VIPblonde said...

@Libby Happy Birthday! FWIW, I'm sure that Posh Spice, who shares your birthday, feels the same way :)

Kimberly said...

I also have another person I know who at 42 lives with dad, shops with dad, goes to movies with dad, actually moved in and seems to be a replace ment for her mom after her mom died. I used to ask her want to go see thus movie...no I am going with dad later. She does not date does not work outside the home is super religious and may still be a virgin

Izzie said...

Happy biday, Libby!

I see nothing wrong w/it, myself. She probably does a lot of managerial/housekeeping duties for him and it's a hell of a lot more convenient to pay your mom to do all of that than to pay strangers. He's not even at home half the time, off on-location, so he's also got a built-in house sitter.

Considering the number of adults who have to live with their parents due to financial circumstances, Coop's mother living with him isn't as salacious as this sounds.

FSP said...

HBD Libby

Meanie Reese said...

Happy, Happy Birtday, dear Libby!!! Have a fantabulous day, girl!! xoxo

DewieTheBear said...

Wicked old news and already the subject of a creepy photo editorial.

Bradley Cooper for Esquire (June/July 2011)

timebob said...

Hope you have a great birthday libby!

He has talked about his mom moving in after his dad past away. He splits his time between Philly and LA she lives in the Philly house.

I think he gets plenty of time away on movie sets. But he really, really loves his mom. Wonder why he doesn't treat the women in his life better?

Robert said...

I have no reason to like Bradley Cooper. Have no particular reason to dislike him either, although I have read some allegations that he tends not to treat women very well, which makes me tend not to be a fan of his. But I do try to be open-minded. If his living with his mother works out for him and her, I think that's their business. I certainly wouldn't pass judgment on it, anyway.

libby said...

Thanks again, everybody!!! You are all so great.


VIP---I was so contented, half my life completely oblivious of Posh's existence/b-day sharing. Then she got famous. SMH....I was depressed.

MISCH said...

I don't have a problem with this, however Bradley makes a lot of money buy a bigger place with 2 master suites at different ends of the house...

phoenix said...

@Dewie, ok.. that creeped me out, but whatever floats their boat because their the ones riding in it.

Sherry said...

It seems to be common practice for boys to be closer to their mommies than women for some reason.

My husband is close to his mom and that was one of the reasons I loved him so much. And typically any man who treats his mother well treats you well so maybe Coop ISN'T violent to his women? Maybe it's not true? If it is, it's an anomaly

I can't find fault in this. If he divides his time between LA and Philly and he's on location a lot the "living with her" almost seems more symbolic than actual. His father's passing was hard for them. Let them comfort each other however they deem appropriate.

rhinovodka said...

I think it's fine, he seems to still be doing his own thing, as far as having his own life. I know many unmarried people in other countries live with their parents until they are married, so it's not a big deal. It makes him slightly more appealing in my eyes.

KLM said...

I secretly hope my kids want me to live with them one day...

Happy birthday, Libby!

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Happy birthday, Libby!

As for BCoop & his mom, I suspect the "in the next room" line was intended to clarify that they shared a living space (the same house/apartment/whatever), as opposed to literally being in the next room all the time. As long as nothing creepy is going on (which it doesn't sound as if there is) and they're both happy with the arrangement, good for them--it's probably better to have his mom looking after the place in Philly instead of having to hire someone else to do it. (This is why I don't have a problem with it when someone has a relative or close friend living with them, especially if they have to travel a great deal--personally, I'd much rather have someone I was close to and trust keeping an eye on my place, as opposed to having to pay someone to do it.)

figgy said...

I agree with @Anna Nonymous, the living in his parents' basement is just part of Enty's humorous pseudo bio. He hasn't been married and divorced numerous times, isn't enormously obese isn't drunk all the time either, I'll reckon. But it does construct a funny image.

Sarah said...

Being a momma's boy doesn't mean they respect women, they just weally, weally wuv their mommy.
A lot of times you realize that particular man only has room for one real female love in their life, and they already have that away.

Sarah said...

This brings to mind my boyfriend that had a mom that needed to prove that SHE would always take care of her baby boy, I think she needed to prove to him that she would take better care of him than I ever could.
He would go home for weekly visits and return with new clothes, things he might need for work or his apartment, new UNDERWEAR. He was over 30.
I actually got very irritated over the underwear, he didn't get it. He thought it was great because it meant he didn't need to buy any, but for me, I didn't want to get sexy with him in undies his mommy chose just for him.
The mommy's best boy act got really old.

dragon said...

Happy bday libbs

I still live with my mom. But then again still I'n my early 20s trying to move the f out lol

kelgela2 said...

You're kidding right? When someone in the family dies, ESPECIALLY the father/husband, your children are the first people you turn to when you need to. She is obviously still not over the fact that her husband died and he is probably wary that she might do something if she lives alone/sent to a retirement home/etc.

Ari said...

He's rich and is lauded he can do what he wants

annabella said...

I've found that men who haven't left mommy treat other woman like crap.

that said, I do think that he is a terrific actor. he was great in limitless.

crila16 said...

I would move in with my mom if she needed me and something happened to my Dad. I would move in with my Dad if something happened to my mom at their late age. My parents were always there for me, I will always be there for them.

It's nice that a guy treats his mom very well. I don't think he's a mommas boy...I think he just loves his mom and cares about her well being.

Amy Scott said...

If my son called me a "cool chick," I'd smack him upside his head. 37 years old or not.

Hazeldazel said...

let's also keep in mind that this ain't no 850 sq ft apartment he's living in neither. He's probably living in some palatial house where the walk-in closet is bigger than my house. With staff to keep it all nice-nice. And he's probably got other cribs to chill at when mom's making the situation "complicated". So yeah.

Amartel said...

Oh, come on! This guy's doing the right thing by his mom and you turn it into a creepy thing? Hasn't Bieber done something today that you can scold about? Aren't (most of) the Kardashians still breathing? Get on that, stat!

Claritysk said...

As my BFF said.... I still live with my mom... Totally kills the " I. Want a serious relationship" from the girls he brings home he says... Go figure. To each their own

kelly said...


Who doesn't want their mom to cook their dinner and do their wash?
I still want it.

There are so many reasons to hate him, I'm not going to use this one.

Happy Birthday Libby, may someone cook your dinner and do your wash!!

auntliddy said...

Happy b- day, libby loo loo!!!!!

The Black Cat said...

He clearly doesn't have another place to bring his flavour of the week to as his mom and Zoe found out. I think it's nice that he and his mom are together but probably time to cut the cord again. She probably revolves her life around him and I don't think that is a good idea for both parties.
I have limited experience with older men that lived at home with mommy and both were a little out of touch with reality.

lazyday603 said...

It's the way they roll at Downton Abbey too. Mom has the Dowager Duchess role to play.

Betsy said...

Bradley Cooper's family's home is a normal house, less than 3000 sq ft. My sister & niece met him at a local restaurant - he was having dinner with his mom. He was quite nice to my niece and posed for a pic with her.

feraltart said...

My mum died back in 1995. My dad has moved in with me (& with me and the hubby) during different times over the years. It works well for us because my dad isn't a prude or conservative, so there isn't the clash of generations that there might be otherwise. He gets on great with my husband. He has his own place and goes and lives in a different state for a few months each year for his health (warmer weather), but we are quite happy for him to move in with us when the time comes. I've seen my mother-in-law deteriorate from being placed in a home (her daughters, not my husband) & unless my dad becomes violent or a risk to himself or others, I will not give him to strangers to look after. I think this is sweet of Bradley.

Jenn said...

While my child does think I'm a cool mother, I'm not living with her ever again. She's messy, and if I'm in the house I know she's going to want to sleep in the bed with me. No. She kicks.

Kloie said...

Happy birthday, Libby!

@Sarah, my MIL used to buy shirts for my husband (after we were married for several years) and I was NOT PLEASED. My husband didn't get why it bothered me.

Kloie said...

Oh, and WTF was that pictorial? Shades of Norman Bates up in here.

mngddess said...

Families are very connected in Philly. That's just the way it is.

elspeth said...

@Sherry, Sorry to disagree w/you [and I have to admit I haven't read past your first comment so things may have changed], but my 'Ex' adored his mother and abused every woman he was with beginning w/his wife and every woman after her -- Much to my chagrin; I was the "last to know" [I was recruited/woo'd from out of state. Ah, yeah, another 'Flag'. If 'they're' not chasing an apparently very available bachelor, then 'you' should wonder why.]

Much too late I learned that she had three husbands who all physically abused her and 'the' boy.

My only guess is that he felt that if it was 'good' enough for his beloved mother, he had a right to pay back any woman who was with him [for the pain and terror they felt]. [And maybe to pay the mom/surrogate back for what he felt?]

Yeah. Warped, i believe, but that's my experience w/sons who love/live w/Moms.

Most guys [I am being SO sexist here because I'm a southern girl who crashed successfully out of my home at 18 because of my 'monster' mater]....BUT Most guys leave home when they're financially independent and generously take care of Mom from at least a slight distance.
