Bradley Cooper He considered leaving acting when his life became chaotic due to addictions, particularly cocaine, the 47-year-old actor revealed on an American podcast called Smartless.

The ‘A Star is Born’ hitmaker admitted to the podcast hosts that he really was in a crisis in the mid-2000s: “I was very lost, and I was addicted to cocaine.”

Cooper confessed that he felt “zero self-esteem” when he was fired from the television series Alias: “I cut my Achilles’ heel right after leaving Alias,” he confessed; He also explained that he asked JJ Abrams, the series’ creator, to make his character disappear because Bradley wanted to take part in other projects, but his drinking problems prevented him from doing so, according to a 2013 interview with GQ magazine. .

The actor appreciates that this complicated phase in his life happened when he was relatively young, at the age of 29, which allowed him to get back on track and now be the man he is, someone far from addiction.
