BRADLEY COOPER on DETAILS June 2010
Bradley Cooper snags another cover for the same month for DETAILS.
Anyway, I'm over it and what I like about this issue is how the photos of Cooper look young and cool. He's wearing plain clothes, ones you could get dirty in but still appear impeccably dressed, instead of precious Yves Saint Laurent suits or Tom Ford shirts. Last year, for the same month, Cooper was photographed---as I remember---fixing a car, in a plain t-shirt and jeans you could barely see. Now, it's the same simple, laid-back gear that's full on American easy chic.
The photos of him playing ball is inspiring. It makes me want to go out and shoot hoops and pretend I'm real good at it.
The photos are by Norman Jean Roy, a Conde Nast favorite I guess and the interesting story, penned by Nancy Jo Sales. Here's a tiny part I really like:
He swings into a secluded coffee bar and orders a decaf macchiato. At the counter he banters with the young barista, whose name, we find out, is Weston. Weston has absolutely no idea who Bradley Cooper is.
"My assistant's name is Weston," Cooper says, waiting for his drink. "He goes by West."
"Too country," the kid grumbles as he grinds the beans.
"I don't mind it. But I don't like Westie."
"Mmm. Too canine."
"What about Wes?"
"Why not just Weston?" the server finally snaps.
"I like it," Cooper says, grinning again. "Thanks, bro," he adds as he's handed his beverage.
If Cooper was trying to be a dick, his timing was impeccable.source: DETAILS
