Bradley Cooper won’t let anything stop him from spending Christmas with his mother.
The Hollywood star is a self-confessed mommy’s boy and even took his mum Gloria along to the Oscars in February (15). Even though he has new girlfriend Irina Shayk in his life, there’s only one woman that’s always guaranteed a place at his dinner table come the holidays.
“When you grew up in the cold and snow in Pennsylvania, the climate in Los Angeles doesn’t seem particularly Christmassy…” he sighed to Germany’s TV Direkt magazine. “But regardless of where I end up for the holidays, I’ll be spending the day with my mom! Hopefully she will cook my favorite dinner – pot roast!”
Bradley has stayed down to earth despite being nominated for an Oscar four times and starring in huge films like The Hangover and American Sniper. His close relationship with his mother only underlines what a nice guy he is, and the death of his father made their bond even stronger – especially when it comes to enjoying each other’s company.
“She’s a cool chick,” Bradley previously told Details magazine. “We can hang. And she can roll with the punches. If that wasn’t the case, there’s no way.
“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. And we need each other. So here we are.”
Bradley has already introduced Irina to his mother, so it seems the model has been given the seal of approval. They were spotted enjoying a day out at the beach together in September (15), with Irina and Gloria chatting and laughing as they paddled in the sea.
