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.

    • Kiltdntiltd

      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.

        • Kiltdntiltd

          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.

            • Kiltdntiltd


    • 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…

      I. WANT. THOSE. SHOES!!!

      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.

    • Alexandra Pimenta

      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.

      • Susan Bullard Mayer

        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.

    • annabelle archer

      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.

      • The Gifted Collector

        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.

    • Shawn EH

      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?

      • Shawn EH

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

    • Gaby

      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.

    • Vera

      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.
