Bradley Cooper has been candid about his past struggles with addiction and what made him decide he needed to stay sober.

The Hollywood star, 47, admitted he felt “out of place” at the age of 20 after becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol.

Speaking with Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes on the Smartless podcast, actor Nightmare Alley talked about how he became addicted to cocaine.

He recalls: “I was very uninspired and addicted to cocaine – that’s another story. I severed my Achilles tendon shortly after I was fired from Alias ​​and struggled with zero self-esteem.”

He starred alongside Jennifer Garner on the series from 2001 to 2003 before his status on the show changed.

Bradley went on to say that he was “completely broke” after moving to Los Angeles until he landed the lead role in The Hangover.

“I couldn’t join any clubs, no girls wanted to look at me. I was completely depressed. It wasn’t until The Hangover, actually. I was 36 when I did The Hangover, so I had to. going through all that before fame has even affected my existence on a daily level. So all that happened before anything.”

And he credits a friend for his final decision to tackle his addiction before the comedy hit.
