We rarely ever see Bradley Cooper so raw.

At the launch of Sean Parker's AMAZING cancer research foundation, the Parker Institute For Cancer Immunotherapy, Bradley opened up about losing his father to lung cancer in 2011. Understandably, the loss is still incredibly difficult to talk about.

In a brave move, Cooper used his father's passing as an example for why we need more resources for people diagnosed with the deadly disease. Even though the actor had a ton of resources and money to help his dad, it was still an exhaustive process. Given how difficult it was for Brad to deal with, he expressed awe and sympathy for those who aren't as fortunate.

Becoming emotional as he spoke, B.C. recalled caring for his sick poppa:

"I just want to tell you about my father Charles J. Cooper, he passed away from lung cancer in 2011. I was in a very lucky position because I was able to put everything on hold in all aspects of my life and completely focus on taking care of him."

Even with all of Brad's good fortune, the situation was less than ideal:

Alec & Hilaria Baldwin Are Done Having Kids After Baby Number 3!

Alec and Hilaria Baldwin

No more babies for Alec Baldwin and his wife Hilaria! Well, after this next one, that is.

As you know, the 58-year-old actor and his yogi wife are expecting their third child together later this year — and they already have two kids under the age of three, Carmen and Rafael.

And while they feel "very lucky" with their growing family, the Baldwin's don't anticipate trying to make any more kiddos.

At the Stand Up to Cancer's Standing Room Only event on Saturday night, the 30 Rock star admitted:

"We had our daughter and we said, ‘How could another one of these be wrong?' Then we had our son, and we said, ‘How could another one of these be wrong?' But now we're thinking, if we had another one, it wouldn't be wrong, but it would be very stressful. We're very lucky, we're very happy."

Hey, fair enough!

A.B. just wants to make sure Hilaria gets some much-needed time off following the birth of their baby boy:

"Our children are like squirrels in the yard. I'm very excited, but I want my wife to have some time off … I just worry about my wife and I want her to rest. So after this is over, we're going to work hard and play hard. A lot of vacations."

How thoughtful!

A lot of vacations doesn't sound too shabby to us!
