Pretty sure when “Alias” debuted in 2001, no one expected Bradley Cooper would eventually be the biggest name to come out of the Jennifer Garner series. After all, his character who secretly pined for his best friend was written off the show after three seasons. But the Georgetown grad followed up the spy game with the 2005 hit “Wedding Crashers,” an acclaimed Broadway run with Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd in 2006 and the box office-crushing, Golden Globe-winning “Hangover” trilogy starting in 2009. The bachelor-party-gone-wrong comedy gave studios faith that the 2011 Sexiest Man Alive could lead films and bring audiences to blockbusters like “The A-Team” or “Valentine’s Day.” In 2012, he proved to his critics that he was more than a pretty face with his Oscar-nominated turn as a football fanatic with bipolar disorder in Silver Linings Playbook. Cooper was nominated for a Golden Globe, SAG Award ad Oscar. He’s fluent in French, which he was inspired to learn after seeing “Chariots Of Fire” as a kid. Cooper, who was briefly married for four months to Jennifer Esposito in 2006, has undoubtedly spoken the language of love to former girlfriends like his “Case 39” costar Renee Zellweger (2009 to 2011) and his “Words” costar Zoe Saldana (2012) as well as his latest rumored flame, British model Suki Waterhouse, who is almost half his age.
