Bradley Cooper Opens Up About Taking Care of His Mother During Pandemic

By Allyson Vannatta, Senior Writer

Actor Bradley Cooper talked about taking care of his mother during the coronavirus pandemic, and how his family is very close.

The JOY actor moved in with his parents, Gloria Campano and Charles Cooper, in 2011 to take care of his late father before he died of lung cancer.

Now, Cooper stays there to take care of Campano.

“I’m with my daughter and my mother and my two dogs, and we have not left the house,” he revealed to Interview Magazine. “My mother is going to be 80, and she has a colostomy bag, so I can’t let anybody in the house. And I can’t leave the house, because if she gets [coronavirus], it’s over.”

“We live in a little townhouse. Thankfully, there’s a backyard,” he added.

He’s also on dad duty, taking care of his 3-year-old daughter, Lea, whom he shares with ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk.

“I’m running a one-man preschool. We get up, we do swim class in the bathtub,” Cooper said.

Family is important to him, and he made that clear in an interview with the Los Angeles Times after his father died.“My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us. It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped. And we need each other. So here we are.”

He added, “It’s not like I live in a compound and she’s in the guesthouse. No. She’s in the next room. But here’s the thing: She’s a cool chick. We can hang, and she can roll with the punches.”

“I love having her [living with us],” he said at the time. “I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Cooper’s comments about taking care of his mother echo Scripture’s command to honor our parents and care for our families.

In 1 Timothy 5, the apostle Paul tells us to provide for our relatives, and if we don’t, we’ve denied the true faith.
