Bradley Cooper to director who turned down an Oscar nomination: “Fuck you”

Bradley Cooper will never forget the famous “asshole” director who turned down his Oscar nominations at an industry event back in 2018.

And the 47-year-old Silver Linings Compilation actor recently explained on the SmartLess podcast that he still doesn’t feel respected in Hollywood, according to IndieWire.

He told hosts Jason Bateman, Will Arnett, and Sean Hayes that a certain director made fun of him for several Academy Award nominations around the time he was doing press for his directorial debut, A Star Is Born.

Four years ago, at a party hosted by talent agency CAA, Cooper was chatting with the actress and director when the latter said, “What kind of world do we live in when you have seven nominations and she only has three?”

The American Sniper actor has nine Oscar nominations.

Cooper recalled thinking to himself at the time, “I’m like, ‘Bro, why are you such an asshole?’ I would never forget this. Go fuck yourself.”

The father of one also looked back at another incident that made him unhappy that he had chosen a profession.

Cooper’s 2018 directorial debut A Star Is Born starred himself and Lady Gaga and received eight nominations at the 91st Academy Awards.

He received his first Oscar nomination in 2013 for Best Actor in The Silver Lining and competed against icons Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Jackman, Joaquin Phoenix and Denzel Washington.

He noted to the podcast hosts that a “hero actress” he didn’t recognize once approached him and turned his nose up at him for getting a pseudonym.

“She’s like, ‘I saw your movie. You deserve a nomination,” he said. “I thought: “What? Sorry, that?’ “Name”. Then, after about 10 or 20 minutes – I’m not kidding – I walked past her going to the bathroom, and she said with her lips: “Name.” I remember [thinking]”What the hell is out of town?” Can you imagine saying this to someone? You must be screwed up to do that.”

Cooper then admitted that early in his film career, he felt “worthless” and “insecure” as an actor.

His next directorial venture, Maestro, will be Cooper’s next and will explore the life of legendary West Side Story conductor Leonard Bernstein.

“Here is the film; a movie about marriage, a movie about family. That’s it,” he added about his new drama. “Why nuclear? Because it’s fucking music. Music is nuclear. In A Star Is Born, I had a secret weapon. It was Lady Gaga. The secret weapon I have in this film is the bloody Leonard Bernstein and Gustav Mahler. Music!”
