The rise of Bradley Cooper: How the American Sniper star hit the A-list

20 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The vast column inches and pixels dedicated to Clint Eastwood's American Sniper of late may have questioned its celebratory portrayal of a man who took hundreds of lives and how it racked up an astonishing $90 million box office debut, but one aspect of the film's fallout has been overlooked entirely: Bradley Cooper is now a bona fide A-list movie star.

Among these class acts is a comic actress–turned–serious dramatist who's actually a reality veteran, a sharp-tongued supporting actor whose first recurring gig was on an Nsfw HBO series and a threepeat nominee who learned his craft from asking other Oscar go-to guys for their advice - over and over again.
