Bradley Cooper – the former Sexiest Man Alive lives with his mom.

“She’s a cool chick,” he says. “We can hang. And she can roll with the punches. If that wasn’t the case, there’s no way.”

But why does he live with his mom? The reason is serious: his father’s death two years ago.

“My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us,” he says. “It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped. And we need each other. So here we are.”

However, living with mom does not come “without complications.”

“It’s not like I live in a compound and she’s in the guesthouse,” he says. “No, she’s in the next room.”

“We’re surviving. Both of us. Let’s face it: It’s probably not easy for her, by the way, to be living with her son,” he says. “It’s life.”
