Bradley Cooper is a good old-fashioned romantic!
He attributes his romanticism to his parents and grandparents, who have been married forever.
He says, “The truth is, I got it first from my parents, who’ve been married since 1963. I got it from them and from my grandparents, who are still together.”
He went on to reveal, “I grew up in a very old-fashioned Roman Catholic, Italian-Irish family in Philly. Now my parents have evolved into completely different creatures, in terms of their marriage and the roles of the man and the woman. And I think that’s great, but it’s still romantic.”
In promotion of his new movie, “All About Steve”, he said that movies have also influenced the way he acts while he’s in love.
He says, “You sort of figure out that you don’t need to replicate what you see. In a relationship you want to treat people the way you want to be treated. And, you figure that out after sussing through all these ideas of how love is supposed to be.”
He added that, in the movie, it didn’t get too far as far as any love scenes with Sandra Bullock, but not because he didn’t want it to happen.
He says, “I don’t feel cheated that Sandra Bullock kept most of her clothes on with me. At least we got sort of a love scene…I still made contact. Actually, Sandra was attacking me physically in one scene. There’s just something in her eyes when she’s on top of me saying, ‘I’m going to eat you like a lion’, that’s so funny. But I wouldn’t have minded going a little further.”
But he’s still cute for revealing all of that about himself. Girls like old-fashioned romantic men!
