That's more like it! On Tuesday, May 29, Bradley Cooper's Hangover: Part III costars showed off their beach bodies during a group outing to Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro, but the 38-year-old actor, disappointingly, stayed covered up in a t-shirt and shorts. The next day, however, Cooper obliged his fans and showed off his muscular beach body.
The Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook actor ditched his shirt and went for a dip in the water after working up a sweat hiking. Unlike Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms, who wore tiny Speedos during the earlier beach day, Cooper wore more modest black swim trunks. Cooper bulked up for his role in the 2010 action film, The A-Team, and appeared to be in as equally good of shape.
Cooper has most recently been romantically linked to 20-year-old model Suki Waterhouse. He previously was in a long-term relationship with actress Zoe Saldana, and, before that, Renee Zellweger. He was also married to actress Jennifer Esposito from 2006 to 2007.
In the May issue of Details, the hunky actor said he hopes to have family of his own some day.
"I really hope I have that experience in my life. I saw how much joy fatherhood gave my own dad," he said of his father, Charles, who passed away in January 2011. "So I hope it's part of my journey. You go through stages in your life, and fatherhood seems like a natural stage."
