Bradley Cooper at the The Place Beyond the Pines Madrid Screening

Posted on September 06, 2013

Dear Madrid: Bradley Cooper doesn’t think you’re worth the effort.


Bradley Cooper attends the screening for his film “The Place Beyond the Pines” at Hotel Santo Mauro in Madrid.

He’d never dress like this for a New York or L.A. opening. We’re just saying.

Sure, he looks kinda hot in that “Hey, who’s that hot guy shopping at the Home Depot with me?” sort of way, but he sure as hell doesn’t look like a movie star at a screening of their new film. Willis it the fuck up, son.

      Ew, no.

    • MilaXX

      Are his pants dirty? He looks like he wandered in after a day of sight seeing.

      • Luneowl

        With that one shadow it almost looks like he wet himself. That’s a good look for the camera!

    • Karen Belgrad

      His jacket looks like a REJECT from Member’s Only.

      • ballerinawithagun

        Exactly! I’m so glad you brought up Member’s Only, I was blanking out on the name.

        • Beardslee

          Me too! And the unlamented memory of those jackets sprang immediately to mind.

    • hughman

      “Hey, look at that! Whoa, what’s that over there? WOW, DID YOU SEE THAT? Omg, was that a… no way man.”

    • tereliz

      So… he came straight from drinking all day and eating tapas?

      • vahtel

        Could you blame him?

    • imspinningaround

      Oh my God, WHAT is going on on his HEAD?! Is that a lace-front?!

      • tereliz

        Ha! HOPEFULLY it’s just his dirty hair.

        • fursa_saida

          I’m just happy he finally CUT it. The attempt at flowing locks has never worked for him (I’ve never understood the accolades I’ve seen for his having “great hair)–the only time I’ve found him attractive was in Silver Linings Playbook, where it was almost buzzed–so at this point I can forgive all the things wrong with it because at least it’s SHORT.

    • Sarah

      Yup. HGTV renovation program carpenter.

      • decormaven

        Nailed it!

        • The Gifted Collector

          I “saw” what you did there. You don’t have to hammer it home. Uh-oh, once I get started, it’s hard to stop. I’d better put a plug in it before I screw it up.

      • Nondescript

        Who’s wearing his pants for the third day in a row.

      • Domo_Konnichiwa

        Hi I’m Ty Pennington and I’m gonna EXTREME MAKEOVER your house!

      • demidaemon

        You know, for some reason, those guys are usually pretty dirty hot. Which I’m totally into.

        Not remotely appropriate for a film premiere, though.

    • Danielle

      Here, honey. Let’s just get those ugly, dirty pants off. There, much better.

    • Constant Reader

      My boyfriend just went out dressed exactly like this. TO MOW THE LAWN.

    • Synnae

      Seriously, unless he was coming straight from the airport with his luggage getting lost en-route, there is no excuse for that outfit on a red carpet.

      Actually, there is no excuse for that outfit at Home Depot either…

    • flamingoNW

      He’s got some trees to chop down after this. Really nice trees, but still.

    • Kate Andrews

      Douche canoe!

    • mmebam

      Geology professor realness…

      • RebeccaKW

        The only thing missing his vest-of-many-pockets.

    • 3boysful

      I have always liked him because he’s smart, but this looks like he’s fallen into the “I can rely on my smile and the baby blues” trap. Kinda the corollary to Brad Pitt’s “I am so damn hot I no longer need to shave or bathe”.

    • Rand Ortega

      Didn’t know they were making a feature version of “Hangin’ W/ Mr. Cooper”. Sorry, that’s insulting to teachers. Even they dress better than this.

      • demidaemon

        Most do. Some of the male professors at my university don’t look like they put much effort in.

    • Denise Alden

      What did Madrid ever do to deserve this?

    • Joe J

      Nothing that a fitted suit, a shave, a haircut, a few chemical peels, some kerosene, and a match wouldn’t fix.

      Oh, and a few headknocks and a couple of swift kicks in the ass. For shame, Mr. Cooper.

      • Imasewsure

        I think Javier Bardem might be the right man for those head knocks. Spain deserves better than this! Can we put him on our Worst Dressed List for 2013? I think so

    • marlie

      This is embarrassing. He looks like he JUST got off of his flight and didn’t have time to change his clothes, brush his hair, and wash his face.

    • Imasewsure

      Willis it the fuck up, son.” AMEN

      Even at Home Depot, I wouldn’t follow this guy for more than an aisle.

    • MondoWasRobbed

      He looks great. I think the hair looks good, and the beard is nicely groomed (minimal neckbeard). As for the clothing…well, it’ll come right off.

      Seriously, what kind of premiere was this? I don’t believe any of the other principals from The Place Beyond the Pines aka “Cruce de Caminos”–not Ryan Gosling, or Eva Mendes, or Derek Cianfrance–even bothered to show up.

    • Qitkat

      This guy is an enigma to me. I really liked him in Alias, and I suppose he likes playing the dopey frat boy slacker charmer, but occasionally he seems to show some great dramatic acting chops. He never quite pulls it off to his best advantage on the red carpet, at least the ones we see on this site.

    • crash1212

      Love the neck up…best hair he’s ever sported.

    • Trickytrisha

      Third day in a row wearing those pants? I like the jacket. My Uncle Bernie has one just like it that he wears when he wants to spiff himself up to go to the mall.

    • annabelle archer

      Something is happening to his hotness; it is in serious decline.

    • Lori

      Once again I find myself thinking that if I had picked an Alias cast member that I wanted to be seeing everywhere, all the time he would so not have been the one.

      • kimmeister

        I miss Michael Vartan.

        • Lori

          And Victor Garbor. And Ron Rifkin. And Carl Lumbly. And for that matter, Jennifer Garner whose post-Alias career has not been what one who have hoped for.

          Basically, Bradley Cooper does nothing for me, plus he’s starting to give off an air du douche that’s working my last good nerve.

    • kimmeister

      Is his hair dark for a role?

    • another_laura

      For shame, Bradley Cooper! He looks like he was just pulled out of the trunk of the limo, rather than the back seat. Madrilenos deserve so much better….

    • Janet B

      That jacket is making things worse.

    • OrigamiRose

      Return of the Neckbeard!

      The Place Beyond the Pines is a very good film, though.

    • María Foulquié

      As a spanish girl, I tell you Bradley, I’m really disappointed.

    • TheLaurenJean

      He got a hair cut! That’s all I need to be THRILLED!

    • Dan_In_NYC

      The gays, we are embarrassed for him today.

    • elemspbee

      que lastima.

    • stephbellard

      I disagree. He doesn’t even look hot.

    • sagecreek

      Two words: Members Only.

    • d4divine

      Actually, he looks like he ran over from the Home Depot…he was shopping for construction supplies and lost track of time. Do better Cooper!!

    • ballerinawithagun

      I love the lime pants but the fly seems very weird to me.

    • ConnieBV

      “Willis it the fuck up”is my fvorite thing to shout at complete strangers.

    • deelup

      Over the pants hand job? What else could produce such a wrinkly crotch?

    • JP

      Ha! I thought of Home Depot too!

    • Florence Whytingale

      To be fair, he has been promoting this film for 8 months now. Also, this would be very ‘in’ in Spain. Also, he pretty.

    • ItsDicey

      And I don’t think he’s worth the effort. Not for a long time now.

    • Fred Vaughn

      I’d STILL tap that.

    • YoungSally

      Jackman wanna be — in his dreams.

    • jmorino08

      Looks like he spent the whole day on a boat, jumped in the water then threw on whatever he could find balled up in the bottom of his duffle bag. Low class.

    • Aurumgirl

      Shame. He does look great in the movie, though.

    • andi56

      Lost luggage, maybe?! He still had time to get something decent to wear! This is just disrespectful. : (
