It’s hard to believe that there was once a time when Bradley Cooper wasn’t a familiar face, but years ago, he was just an aspiring actor like so many others. Now, a throwback video of the 39-year-old from his first years in the business has appeared — and it totally proves his American Hustle costar Louis C.K. wrong!
In a recent interview on The Stephen Merchant Show, the comedian commented on the segment of Inside the Actor’s Studio, where audience members can ask the famous guest questions about how they got to where they are. “There’s no way you’ll ever be famous,” he said, of those aspiring youngsters. “You’ll never be famous. There’s no way you ask Sean Penn a question and then you’re going to be huge.”
Wrong — so wrong! Because Bradley, in his second year of acting, was an audience member during one of Sean’s appearances on the program…and was able to interact with him via one brief question. And, of course, we all know how successful the Silver Linings Playbook star is today! Check it out in the video above.
