Bradley Cooper in Tom Ford

Posted on May 30, 2013

We still hate the hair, but we’ve got to give him this one.


Bradley Cooper attends the premiere of ‘The Hangover Part 3’ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in Tom Ford.

Tom Ford Spring 2013 Collection

We just love a man in a good summer suit. Quibbles: don’t really love the ombre shoes, and that sports watch is too big to wear under a jacket, which is partially why we can’t see his shirt cuffs – and we should.  And the tie needs adjusting. And we detest the helmet hair, but we’ll accept the oft-mentioned defense that it’s for a role, so long as he doesn’t load it up with cheap drugstore hair gel.

We are all very excited to go see Se Beber, Não Case! III here at The T Lo  Institute for Laughing At Oddly Translated Movie Titles. “If You Drink, Don’t Get Married,” is somehow more poetic than “The Hangover,” don’t you find?

    Well, this day is shaping up nicely.

    • marlie

      And it’s not even Sausage Friday.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    The unshaven face would even be okay if his mop was trimmed neatly. The long haired look is just not for him. The suit is nice though, and I agree, different shoes would have been better with the suit, but overall a much better look than he’s pulled off lately.

  • MoHub

    How cool would this be with white bucks and navy socks?

  • Jennifer C.

    Stubble and hair are a little too long for my liking, but I still wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating crackers. Thanks for the morning pretty!

  • etselec

    I wish he would smile instead of smirking.

  • I have a set of hair cutting scissors, and a trimmer here. Bradley need only stop by and I will get him nicely set up. Of course we WILL have to get him out of that suit. Wouldn’t want to get hair all over it.

    • Emily

      Can I join? I can assist in putting the suit in a safe place so it doesn’t get dirty.

      • Of course you can, I am nothing if not willing to share. (grin)

        • Emily

          Fabulous see you around one on my way home from Dublin.

  • Annarosa

    It would have been nice wearing something emphasizing those beautiful blue eyes. Anyway that white is too… white, I’m dazzled now… oh wait, ok, it’s just his eyes.

  • AlisonS

    Is it me or does he always look like he’s standing on his toes leaning every so slightly forward?

  • Silly Grrl

    At least the hair isn’t crunchy!

  • TAGinMO

    Yeah, there are probably better choices to go with this suit, but…


    Sadly, they are probably yet another stylish footwear option unavailable to those of us who wear a size 15.

    • MilaXX

      Zappos has ombre in size 15

      • TAGinMO

        Thanks, I need to check that out.

    Omg, TLo, I’m LMAO at this post so hard (not at Bradley, poor thing), because just last night, me and Mr. P were watching tv and we were both disgusted and amused, at the title of the movie over here (we live in Rio). Specially, because there’s a much better, much cooler word that means *exactly* “hangover”, which is ‘ressaca’. The title they chose sucks even for brazilians, speaking the language daily, trust me. lol.

    But the truth is, this is pretty much a staple over here. Horribly translated titles are almost part of our culture and definitely expected.

    As for Bradley, very nice from the neck down. From the neck up, he looks like he’s ‘mid-morph’ into Patrick Dempsey. Not in a good way.

    • Ui

      The same happens here in Argentina, I hate when they go and ruin a movie title like that!

    • FrigidDiva

      “Mid-morph into Patrick Dempsey” may be the most perfect description for his current hairstyle I have read.

    • Nicholas

      The Danish title for Die Hard: With a Vengeance is literally Die Hard: Mega Hard.

      I just wish we could use the original titles in all countries.

      • Winter_White

        Haha, Nicholas! Recently I noticed that a website selling Danish films was highlighting a “Classic Western of Clint Eastwood:” Den Gode, den Onde og den Grusomme.
        The Good the Bad and the Gruesome. Made me laugh.

    • My favorite translated title for this movie is in France: Very Bad Trip 3. Indeed it is.

    • isapaiva

      Ha, nice to see another Brazilian here! I was thinking the same thing. But Brazilian culture regarding foreign films is much better than in most countries, since the movies at the cinema are rarely dubbed (most countries, even those like Germany, where a large portion of the population speaks English, do it), unless they’re for kids. And dubbed movies are the worst!

      • Alexandra Pimenta

        Hey “another brazilian”! *waves* Oh…dubbed movies are indeed the worst. I just can’t deal with…. Taking some incredible performances and throwing then into a pile of the same ol’ “Grupo Severiano Riberio” voices… *shrivers*

  • FrigidDiva

    Love the suit, but I wish he would have stuck with a similar look to the model. That blue would have been lovely on him.

  • Meh, sorry fellas, all I’m getting is Colonel Sanders goes to the Hamptons.

  • annrr

    Nay, the suit is too Mr Roarke for me.

  • jw_ny

    The gap between the shirt collar and the top of the tie…ack! Why does it seem that so many male celebs can’t get the tie right? This would have been the perfect opportunity for a bold print and wider tie with a bigger knot. That black knit one just doesn’t seem to go with the rest…

    • marlie

      That little gap is the only thing that’s making my eye twitch.

    • Don’t like the gap either, but at least last year’s mini trend of a slightly loose tie over an open top button has died. I stopped watching Craig Ferguson because I couldn’t stand looking at that any longer.

  • Anglow

    Why do people who can see how good their hair looks on film not wear it the same way in real life?

  • carnush

    Gorgeous suit. Perfect for Brazil.

  • Moriginal

    Holy boom-chicka-wow-wow, and it’s not even sausage Friday!

  • txngyrrl

    My day was made as I laugh about the movie translation.

    And if I can quibble – if he is in Rio de Janeiro, he should have opted for the same tie the model is wearing. The original tie had it a little more fun, and then ole Brad turned it into business meeting.

    And don’t even get me started on that hair. I’m waiting for when he makes a hairstyle change and all of Hollywood, and Bitter Kittens rejoice. Loudly.

  • MilaXX

    I hadn’t noticed the translation in the background. I like the suit and while i agree with all the quibbles, I will give him a slight pass for not using the entire jar of product in his hair.

  • Erika

    Where’s the Ed Helms post? He’s the real cutie of the film.

  • nannypoo

    The excuse that his hair is for a role is not working for me. It is possible to have long hair worn in a flattering and attractive style without an entire jar of vaseline holding it in place. He needs to work with whoever does his hair to figure it out. He also needs to shave. He seems like a nice guy but lately he has been looking pretty grubby.

  • Diego!

    Oh please! If there´s anything you guys should hate is that tie, which he can take off! As all of the other clothes he is wearing too hahaha

  • EEKstl

    When did the 1970’s professor tie come back into fashion? Don’t mind it but think the navy is a bit too heavy for the look. But he’s dreamy, helmet hair or not.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    I find it SO hard to like summer suits on a man, but he really looks wonderful. If he’d have just done something with that awful hair, he’d be perfect.

  • siriuslover

    Love that translated title! Kinda dig that knit tie, but why can’t these men tighten them! The hair combined with the beard makes him look douche-y.

  • ashtangajunkie

    He looks terrific. Totally agree about the hair (yuck) – whatever role it’s for, I hope they finish filming soon.

  • marlie

    He looks pretty great here. If he’s going to go with the long hair (for a role or not), it’s SO much better without a gallon of gel in it. I might have changed the shoes, but otherwise, nicely done.

  • barbarienne

    Every time I look at him, I still see Ralph Fiennes as Lenny Nero in Strange Days, only slightly cleaner. Doesn’t matter what he’s wearing. It might be the hair.

  • Glam Dixie

    That model appears to be picking a wedgie, it’s very distracting. Were we saying something about Bradley?

    • jw_ny

      I thought the same thing when I saw it…almost posted it too. XD

  • stubbornthoughts

    That’s a suit perfectly fitted to its master, if I do say so myself.

  • AndreaSkates

    I loathe the cool lavendar shirt under the warm-tone ivory suit. This would be so much better with a peach-toned shirt and a terracotta colored tie.

  • Poeta Paz

    After looking at the model, he just looks so plain.

  • The shoes kind of make it for me, but I have a hard time taking knit ties seriously.

  • formerlyAnon

    He does look great. I wish his tie wasn’t knit. Or at least, was more finely knit from a silk yarn that had an occasional tiny strand of some intense color in it. (I really like the shoes.)

  • editrixie

    Wait — are knit ties a thing again?

    • They’re in the magazines again, part of the relaxed prep thing that’s going on with all the polos and loafers lately.

  • The model looks so 90s. GROOVE IS IN THE HEAAAART.

    • demidaemon

      I love that song. Now it’s stuck in my head.

  • Louise Bryan

    Strange. I got “Hangover” when I put this in Google Translate.

  • bellafigura1

    Suit: good. Every single other thing: Not good.

  • Feeling the suit. The hair not so much, but Cooper is one of those people who looks better in action that in photos.

  • stephbellard

    I guess we’re grading him on a curve now?

  • Erin Schubert Needham

    Why does he always look like he’s leaning? He shoulda had a V-8!

  • Renaissance_Man_ATL

    Should have worn the same tie as the model.
