Bradley Cooper: Why I Quit Drink and Drugs
Posted by Adam
BRADLEY Cooper has revealed he quit booze because it almost ruined his life.
The Hangover Star admits he’s calmed down a lit since his wild 20s.
The actor opened up in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
“I was at a party, and deliberately bashed my head on the concrete floor,” Cooper said. “Like, ‘Hey, look how tough I am!’
“I did it again. [And] I spent the night at St. Vincent’s Hospital with a sock of ice, waiting for them to stitch me up.
“I don’t drink or do drugs anymore. Being sober helps a great deal … I remember looking at my life, my apartment, my dogs [when I was still using], and I thought, ‘What’s happening?’
“I was so concerned what you thought of me, how I was coming across, how I would survive the day.
“I always felt like an outsider. I just lived in my head. I realized I wasn’t going to live up to my potential, and that scared the hell out of me. I thought, ‘Wow, I’m actually gonna ruin my life. I’m really gonna ruin it.”
