In the advertisement, Bradley Cooper's mom jokes about his Oscar nominations.
Bradley Cooper and his mom Gloria Campano had a ball on camera recently. The duo starred in a T-Mobile Super Bowl commercial, displaying their close bond on the spot. The Oscar candidate was seen bantering with his mother, a regular companion to Cooper on the red carpet, in the advertisement. Campano joined Cooper at the 2019 SAG Awards, the 2022 Oscars, and many such events.
The advertisement, which played during the game's opening frame, is making fans love the banter between the mother-son duo, per TODAY. In the advertisement, Cooper welcomes his mother to the store while posing as a T-Mobile employee. Both actors break character almost immediately, starting to laugh. "You look like a flamingo in this," Campano laughs, making fun of Cooper's pink shirt.
She then gives her son acting instructions, which he rejects as unnecessary. "I think I know what I'm doing," he says. "I've been nominated nine times," Cooper adds, to which his mother has the most brutal reaction. In her reply, Campano makes fun of his prior accomplishments. She says, "Yeah, but you never won any." More laughter comes from Cooper in return.
Cooper is extremely close with his mother and was close with his father as well. Charles Cooper, Gloria's husband, and Bradley's father died in 2011 after a protracted fight with lung cancer. At the 2016 Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy opening, Bradley said, per LA Times, “I was in a very lucky position because I was able to put everything on hold in all aspects of my life and completely focus on taking care of him.”
Bradley invited Gloria to live with him when Charles passed away so they could support one another through their grieving, but it was occasionally a challenging process. "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," he said at the time. "So here we are… 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."
During the early phases of the pandemic in New York City, Bradley talked openly in August 2020 about caring for his mother Gloria, and his daughter Lea De Seine, whom he shares with his ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk. “I’m with my daughter and my mother and my two dogs, and we have not left the house,” he shared with Interview. “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 it, it’s over.” He added, “We live in a little townhouse, thankfully there’s a backyard. I’m running a one-man preschool. We get up, we do swim class in the bathtub.”
