Bradley Cooper movies: 13 greatest films ranked from worst to best

It’s the weekend which many film fans have circled on their calendars with the premiere of Bradley Cooper‘s directorial debut, the fourth edition of “A Star Is Born.” Cooper had worked for years to develop the film, serving as the film’s star (opposite Lady Gaga), director, co-producer, co-writer, and he co-authored two of the film’s songs as well. Cooper, who has worked with some of the finest film directors around, such as Clint Eastwood and David O. Russell, obviously has picked up from them how to incorporate the many elements that go into making a film.

Cooper, who made his feature acting debut in 2001’s “Wet Hot American Summer,” found his stardom grow along with his filmography. He is one of only 10 men who have been nominated for acting Oscars three years in a row (for “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Hustle” and “American Sniper”). He also earned a fourth Academy Award nomination for producing Best Picture nominee “American Sniper.” He won a Screen Actors Guild Award for being part of the ensemble cast of “American Hustle” and was nominated for two more SAG Awards. He also earned two Golden Globe nominations. More may be coming his way.

Cooper looks to be having a very busy autumn.  With not only “A Star Is Born” in theaters, Cooper has also been reunited with Eastwood for “The Mule,” which opens in theaters on December 14.

In honor of Cooper’s big year, take a tour of our photo gallery above featuring his 13 greatest films, ranked from worst to best.
