Bradley Cooper: 'The Hangover helped my career'

May 27th, 2011

Bradley Cooper has "more doors opened" to him since he appeared in 'The Hangover'.

The 36-year-old actor - who began his career with a small part on 'Sex and the City' opposite Sarah Jessica Parker - is thankful for the 2009 comedy movie, but still has to audition to get parts.

He said: "More doors have been opened, for sure, but it's not like I sit back with a cigar on Monday morning and go through the scripts that have been offered.

"That's not the case. I still put myself on tape to audition for movies and try to get roles."

Bradley is currently starring in the sequel to the 'Hangover', and he believes director Todd Phillips was more confident when he shot the follow-up, which filmed in Thai capital Bangkok.

He said: "It's a more confidently directed film by Todd. The first one moves like a bottle rocket, this one takes its time. I'm curious how people will react to how dark it is and how much time is taken with it."
