Bradley Cooper's New Beard Is Nightmare Fuel (Run, Gigi!)

Bradley Cooper’s new beard was so off-putting that it was possibly not the actor’s choice, but a look cultivated for a film role. In preparation for 2014’s “American Sniper,” Cooper famously grew out his beard while also packing on 40 pounds. After the role was complete he shaved the beard, but later grew a more grizzled look for 2018’s “A Star is Born.” Once again, Cooper opted for a clean-shaven face after production wrapped, but that was not well-received by fans. “I had a lot of people tell me they preferred him with the beard and long hair, asking me to grow it back out,” his stylist, Natalia Bruschi, told Refinery29 in 2019. Fortunately, he brought the beard back when Cooper performed a song from ‘A Star is Born’ with Lady Gaga at the 2019 Oscars. “I asked him, ‘Beard or no beard?’ and he said, ‘Beard, definitely,'” Bruschi said, leading up to the awards show.

Obviously, the “Nightmare Alley” star was comfortable changing his facial hair, so perhaps the new shaved-chin beard was for a role. A look at his IMDb showed that Cooper’s movie “Is This Thing On?” was listed as “in production.” The film was announced in June 2023, but no plot details were revealed, per Deadline. Another possible explanation for Cooper’s strange beard was that he just did not care. “Don’t you get to a certain age where you try to live comfortably?” he said during an interview with Esquire in 2012 while discussing his appearance.
