One stud who was missed on the Golden Globes red carpet this weekend was Bradley Cooper. Unfortunately, the actor is mourning the loss of his father Charles, 71, who died last week after battling a long illness.
Charles, a former Merrill Lynch stock broker, is survived by his wife Gloria, Bradley, daughter Holly and sister Nancy Peacock.
Bradly, 36, was able to make his father’s big-screen dream a reality before he passed.
The actor got his father a cameo role in 2010′s The A-Team, as Judge Advocate No. 3 in the court martial scene.
“It was one of the best experiences of my life. The guy loves to improvise… I had to calm him down!” Bradley told David Letterman on the Late Show while promoting The A-Team last summer. “He wanted to improvise with Jessica Biel. He was supposed to stay in his seat, but he got up and the camera had to start moving. He wanted to have a conversation with Jessica!”
Bradly has been dating Renée Zellweger since 2009, and the actress reportedly canceled her appearance at Sunday’s Golden Globes to be with her man during this difficult time.
Funeral services for the actor have not been disclosed.
