Hollywood A-Lister Bradley Cooper has made millions acting in the likes of A Star Is Born, but he still lives with his beloved mum.

Bradley moved back home with his parents after his father Charles was diagnosed with aggressive lung cancer.

Some ten years later, he still lives with his mother, Gloria Campano.

He sweetly shared that they "need each other" after the loss of his dad, Charles.

His father received a diagnosis in 2011, causing Bradley to take a break from acting.

Gloria and Charles had been married for over 36 years.

He told the LA Times: "My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us. It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped.”

Bradley relocated his mum to LA to live with him, and he said he has no regrets.

Back in 2013 he said: "We need each other. So here we are. But don’t get me wrong. It’s not without complications. It’s not like I live in a compound and she’s in the guesthouse. No. She’s in the next room."

"But here’s the thing: She’s a cool chick,” he joked, adding: “We can hang, and she can roll with the punches. If that wasn’t the case, there’s no way."

She stayed during the COVID-19 pandemic, along with her granddaughter Lea and two dogs.

He regularly brings his mum along to red carpets too as his guest.

They even appeared together in an ad that featured during the Superbowl.

Gloria teases her son about the fact that he has never won an Oscar despite being nominated nine times.

There's always next time!
