Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse, 17-Year Age Difference

Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse Age Difference

Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse Age DifferenceBradley Cooper’s very first act­ing role was a single-episode appear­ance on the tele­vi­sion series Sex and the City in 1999. It was a small part, but it was the start­ing point of what would soon become an immensely suc­cess­ful act­ing career, and the begin­ning of his sta­tus as a bona fide celebrity.

Cooper landed his first film role in 2001 play­ing a sum­mer camp coun­selor in the com­edy Wet Hot Amer­i­can Sum­mer—it was a true test for his skill as an actor because in this debut, he had to do a hot and heavy sex scene with another man. It paid off because the work kept com­ing in. Cooper went on to make appear­ances in films like Wed­ding Crash­ers (2005), Fail­ure to Launch (2006), Yes Man (2008), and He’s Just Not That Into You (2009). He also enjoyed recur­ring roles on the tele­vi­sion series Jack & Bobby and Alias.

The one film that truly cat­a­pulted Cooper into star­dom was The Hang­over. Released in 2009, the movie had a pro­duc­tion bud­get of $35.0 mil­lion, but earned over $467.0 mil­lion in box office sales world­wide, and spawned two sequels.

Since the suc­cess of The Hang­over, Cooper’s work sched­ule has got­ten sig­nif­i­cantly busier. He’s also sharp­ened his act­ing skills by tak­ing on more var­ied char­ac­ters, like a scorned war vet in The A-Team, a fraud­u­lent writer in The Words, a cop in The Place Beyond the Pines, and a recov­er­ing men­tal patient in Sil­ver Lin­ings Play­book.

The one role that didn’t quite work for him was the part of a lov­ing husband—in real life, that is. Cooper walked down the aisle in 2006 with actress Jen­nifer Espos­ito, but the mar­riage lasted less than five months—she filed for divorce, although Cooper’s rep stated it was mutual and that they had actu­ally been sep­a­rated for a while. The actor later admit­ted in an inter­view that they both just real­ized that the mar­riage wasn’t going to work.

Cooper’s next seri­ous rela­tion­ship was with his Case 39 co-star, Renee Zell­weger. They dated for a cou­ple of years before call­ing it quits, report­edly because Cooper was more com­mit­ted to his career than any­thing else. After Zell­weger, Cooper was rumored to be hook­ing up with his The Words co-star Olivia Wilde, fol­lowed by what seemed to be a more seri­ous rela­tion­ship with actress Zoe Saldana—she also starred in The Words. But they too broke up in Decem­ber 2012.

It didn’t take too long for Cooper to jump back into the dat­ing game, and he def­i­nitely made a splash. The actor was never really one to go for younger women—in fact, many of his past rela­tion­ships were with women who were older than him. But just a cou­ple months after split­ting with Sal­dana, Cooper, 38, revealed his new girl­friend: 21-year-old model Suki Water­house, who has appeared on the cover of sev­eral high-fashion mag­a­zines and has walked some of the hottest runways.

Cooper and Water­house were first spot­ted leav­ing a party together in Feb­ru­ary 2013—at the time, Water­house was thought to be in a long-term rela­tion­ship with singer Miles Kane. But some­thing must have worked in Cooper and Waterhouse’s favor, because, even with the 17 years between them, they’ve seemed to sus­tain a monog­a­mous rela­tion­ship ever since.
