“The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper and his girlfriend Suki Waterhouse are battling alcohol addiction together. According to The Inquisitr on Feb 2, the actor nearly lost his life to the addiction and is now helping his longtime girlfriend deal with the addiction, too.
The entertainment industry has lost so many brilliant artists to drugs and alcohol. On the heels of news that Philip Seymour Hoffman may have lost his life to drug abuse, news that Copper and Waterhouse are taking steps to battle their demons is inspiring.
The two first appeared as a couple in public at the SAG Awards but have been quietly seeing one another since last year. Though there have been rumors of trouble between them, they give the appearance of being very happy together.
Nearly 10 years ago, while Cooper was working on “Alias,” he contemplated suicide, saying:
“If I continued it, I was really going to sabotage my whole life…. I would only work three days a week. And then for the second season, I got even more sidelined. I was like, ‘Ugh.’ And then next thing you know, I was like, “I want to f***ing kill myself.”
He made a recovery and kicked his habit only to go to play one of the most famous fictional partyers of all time, Phil Wenneck from “The Hangover” movie series.
Fictional characters aside, Cooper himself isn’t indulging. Suki may have a reputation as a party animal to match anything in her boyfriend’s movies but she is apparently to leave her party-going ways in the past. The 22-year-old has quit drinking. She isn’t making a big deal out of it. She is simply spending more time with Cooper and his family. They don’t include drinking in their activities.
Here’s wishing the lovebirds all the best.
