The Heartwarming Way Bradley Cooper Helped Ken Jeong During The Hangover
It's safe to say Bradley Cooper is one of Hollywood's shiniest stars right now, thanks to his directing debut A Star is Born - for which he's been nominated for, not one, but three Academy awards.
But let us not forget his starring turn in The Hangover, which turns ten this year, where Bradley went from actor to movie star. While he's pretty ace on the screen, it turns out the Hollywood heavyweight is even better when the cameras stop rolling, as was revealed by Hangover co-star and comedian Ken Jeong.
During a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ken told a heartwarming story about the time Cooper helped out him and his wife, Tran Jeong, when she was being treated for breast cancer.
The Huffington Post reports that Tran was receiving chemotherapy while Ken was shooting his breakthrough role as Mr. Chow in Las Vegas, alongside Cooper who stepped in to help when he needed it most.
As Tran was too weak from the chemo to travel, Cooper used to drive Ken from Vegas to LA so that he could be with his wife.
But it didn't end there, Ken added: "We were in LA for the holidays and Bradley had us come over to his place and be with the family.
"It got me through the most difficult period of my life."
Way to go, Cooper. Just when you thought you'd experienced all the feels, let it be known that following her diagnosis in 2008 and chemotherapy treatment, Tran was declared 'cancer free' after The Hangover wrapped filming. We'll toast to that!
While we're on the topic of Bradley Cooper and his ceaseless rise to stardom, just what's going on between him and Lady Gaga, who exceeded all expectations with her role as Ally in A Star is Born.
With the Oscars looming, it's probably safe to assume that Cooper is keeping absolutely everything crossed in the run up to the awards. However, one gong he can already put on his shelf is his very own Best Director Oscat from PETA, for using his own pooch in A Star Is Born, rather than bringing one in from an animal entertainment company.
In an interview with People, Cooper said he opted to use his own four-legged friend in the movie so there was already a strong bond for cameras to pick up.
"There was no nepotism - I wanted this relationship with the dog," he said.
"[Jackson and Ally] don't have a child together but they have a dog together, and I wanted it to be part of their story. I love dogs."
