We just love hearing our favorite actors and actresses explaining why they got into the business!
Aww, we just love tradition!
So, what was YOUR favorite I'm An Actor speech?
K, if those eyes get any bluer, were gonna pass out!!!
We’ve seen Bradley Cooper clean up nicely before but we are beside ourselves with how AH-Mazing he looks in the pages of GQ this month!
The American Hustle perm and 70s threads are long gone! Just look at the designer suits Coop is rocking now!
Srsly. Bradley, you are so damn dapper in these pics, you make Don Draper look like a friggin’ hobo!
After picture time was over, the Golden Globe nominated actor opened up about his past problems with drugs and how he’s staying sober now! And he discussed how he actually requested to be written off of the show Alias!
Ch-ch-check out the candid interview and ALL of his seksi GQ pics…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
ON HIS OSCAR NOMINATION FOR SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK
"Did I want to win it? I never thought that I would ever win it. So it wasn’t even a question of that."
ON ASKING TO BE WRITTEN OFF OF ALIAS
"I would only work three days a week. And then for the second season, I got even more sidelined. I was like, ‘Ugh.’ And then next thing you know, I was like, ‘I want to fucking kill myself.’ J.J. [Abrams] was like, ‘Okay.’ He probably would’ve fired me, anyway.”
ON WHETHER HIS DRUG ADDICTION AFFECTED HIS WORK
"I mean, it has to have. And to this day, of course, because it’s a life experience. And all I do is bring life experience. That’s all anybody really does. It’s inescapable. If I continued it, I was really going to sabotage my whole life.”
ON WORKING WITH SANDRA BULLOCK AND STAYING SOBER
"I was doing these movies, and I got to meet Sandra Bullock and meet these people and work with them. And I’m sober, and I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m actually myself. And I don’t have to put on this air to be somebody else, and this person still wants to work with me? Oh, what the fuck is that about?’ I was rediscovering myself in this workplace, and it was wonderful. Now, in the back of my head, or in a place of my heart of, like, creativity, did I feel utterly fulfilled? Absolutely not. But I was grateful and happy to be working, and filling that void in smaller moments.”
