Bradley Cooper responded Tuesday to the media backlash aimed at him for attending the Democratic National Convention.
In an appearance on CBS’ “Late Late Show with James Corden,” Cooper talks about how he visited his hometown of Philadelphia to attend the DNC with his mother and girlfriend Irina Shayk.
He said he wasn’t expecting the reaction he got from conservatives.
“I wasn’t expecting that…The Republicans were up in arms because I was there listening to the president speak,” Cooper said.
Cooper’s “The Hangover” director Todd Phillips then butted in, saying, “Yeah, but [that was] because you played Chris Kyle in ‘American Sniper,’ which is like the Mob being mad at [Robert] De Niro for being in ‘The Intern.'”
The two of them then regaled Corden with tales of meeting former president Bill Clinton while filming “Hangover Part II” in Bangkok.
Watch the full clip below.
Bradley Cooper is not a genetically modified talking raccoon. Nor is he a scumbag schoolteacher with a penchant for hangovers. He is also not the deadliest sniper in U.S. history.
That, and actors historically leaning to the left side of the political spectrum, apparently didn’t stop some conservatives from angrily decrying the actor who brought us Sack Lodge and Brian Gilcrest.

Since the show’s debut nearly two weeks ago, “Stranger Things” fans have been calling for Netflix to release the soundtrack and the entertainment company is finally humoring their requests. It posted this tweet yesterday stating “We hear you loud and clear. The #StrangerThings Official Soundtrack is coming soon. Over.”
There’s no release date for the soundtrack just yet, but Netflix did create a Spotify playlist that compiles most of the hits from the show. Maybe this will hold you over while we wait for Netflix to make good on its promise.
Also, here’s a little fun fact: the show’s actress Millie Bobby Brown, who plays Eleven, does her own YouTube covers of classic songs and current pop hits.
That’s right, today Netflix unveiled the much-anticipated release date for the “Gilmore Girls” four-part revival. The show, which comes nearly ten years after the last episode of the original series, will be available for streaming on Netflix.
Accompanying the release date, fans were also given a short clip of the upcoming show featuring Lorelai and Rory sitting in their familiar kitchen having a chat. Though it’s a little strange hearing the Gilmore girls discuss Amy Schumer and John Oliver, it’s good to see the characters in action.
Lennon bought the car with Yoko Ono in 1971 and used it in the film “Imagine.” Then in 2008, the car was donated to the Austin Rock and Roll Car Museum by one of its owners Milton Verret. But now, the vintage motor is being sold to raise money to UNICEF at an auction held by auction company RM Sotheby’s.
The car will be on display before the auction in London sometime mid-August. According to the press release, the car is fitted with the five aero plane seats in the back that The Beatles star had added and will come with it original vehicle registration and title document, signed by Lennon.
Captain Kirk and The Dude ventured to Austin last night to have a little chat at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.
Actors Chris Pine and Jeff Bridges were in the city for a special screening Monday night of their film “Hell or High Water,” which is about a family who has to try and save their West Texas ranch. The two hosted a Q&A and were joined on stage by co-stars Ben Foster and Gil Birmingham, director David Mackenzie and few more from the crew.
And after their Drafthouse appearance, Bridges and Pine made their way over to The Continental Club to see country singer Dale Watson. Apparently, Bridges is a big fan and he also gave a shout out to the memory of his friend and musician Stephen Burton.
But the stars aren’t gone yet. The “Hell or High Water” cast gave some interviews at Star Hill Ranch today, just outside of Austin.
A thrilling number of trailers for much-anticipated upcoming releases were put online this weekend after debuting at this year’s Com-Con International in San Diego. Here’s a round-up of some of the best ones:
Though many people have their doubts about what director Zack Snyder can do with the DC heroes after “Batman vs. Superman,” the trailer for “Justice League” looks promising. It will be in theaters November 2017.
5. “American Gods”
Starz revelead its first trailer for the television series based on Neil Gaiman’s novel. It’s set to premiere in 2017.
6. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”
This is the most detailed trailer we’ve been given since the film’s first, though it still doesn’t reveal much. The Wizarding World comes to New York this November.
7. “The Walking Dead: Season 7”
So this show is obviously not a new release but the trailer for season seven is. Last we saw in “The Walking Dead” there was a death that might devastate us all but who it was is still unknown. It premiers this October.
“People can survive running at full pace into a wall but when you’re talking about collisions involving vehicles, the speeds are faster, the forces are greater and the chances of survival are much slimmer,” TAC chief executive officer Joe Calafiore said in a news release.
And they did. As of 2013, the couple had visited all 730 restaurants in 10 states. The chain even declared them its biggest fans. In a Texas Monthly article in 2013, the couple said they had started their quest while Carol Hoepfner was undergoing radiation treatment for a rare form of eye cancer.
Their affinity with Whataburger dates back to 1963, according to an article in Food Republic. Karl said he and Carol were stationed in San Angelo as part of the Air Force and were looking for a good meal for a great price. “We found both in Whataburger, so we stuck with it,” he said.
But earlier this year, after 59 years of marriage, Carol died.
“My wife had eye cancer, and she just passed in February,” Karl told The Monitor. “We had visited all the stores through 2013. She got so bad that she couldn’t go with me anymore. After she passed, I’ve been kind of lonesome and I don’t have much to do, so I decided I’d go out and visit some more stores.”
Karl, who has developed a relationship with Whataburger over the past few years, received a list from the chain with every restaurant that had been built since 2013. His stop in Brownsville marked No. 24 and he still has about 50 left to go.
