Watch: SAG Conversations with Bradley Cooper

Happy birthday, Bradley Cooper! The A Star is Born actor-director-screenwriter turns 45 years old today. Various audiences first encountered Cooper from his versatile range of early roles — on an episode of Sex and the City, in the absurd comedy Wet Hot American Summer, on the TV series Alias, and in the comedy Wedding Crashers.

No matter where you first saw Cooper, it’s hard to argue against his success. He’s been nominated for seven Academy Awards (four for acting) and a Tony Award, and has even won a Grammy Award and a BAFTA Award for music he recorded for A Star is Born.

A year ago on his 44th birthday, Cooper sat for a lengthy career-spanning interview with Krista Smith of Vanity Fair for the SAG-AFTRA Foundation and spoke about how his career had grown in the wake of the success of A Star is Born, his first film as a director and screenwriter (he will be repeating as actor-director-screenwriter-producer with his 2020 biopic Bernstein). He also details what he’s learned from his acting roles in a variety of blockbuster and critically-acclaimed movies.
