Bradley Cooper Graces Cover of ‘W’ Magazine; Looks Great at 40!

Bradley Cooper is on the cover of W magazine, and he is looking amazing! With his magazine cover, Cooper celebrates his 40th birthday and shows fans that 40 is the new 20.

On the newsstands, Bradley Cooper’s cover photo for W magazine is a lot to take. Dressed down in nothing but white suspenders, the “Hangover” star was chosen specifically for the magazine’s “Best Performances” issue. With this cover photo, there’s surely a lot to enjoy about Cooper as he shows off his body in an artsy manner.


While this may be a steamy photo for Cooper’s fans, the inside photo will be sure to launch a tirade of oohs and aahs for the actor. Instead of wearing formal clothing, the actor, who recently turned 40, opted to take everything off and leave little to the imagination. The only thing that makes the photo decent enough to share around is that Cooper is covering his private parts by holding the clothes he was given to wear.

But seriously, being chosen to grace the cover of a much-respected magazine, especially during their Best Performances issue is truly an honor for the actor. Ever since his “Alias” days, Cooper has not failed to amaze his audience with his killer smile and incredible acting skills. Over the past years, a more mature and fun Cooper was highlighted in the films he has become part of. Not to mention, he has received accolades for his work in the movies such as “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Sniper” and “American Hustle.” Moreover, his performance on the Broadway play “The Elephant Man” has led him to receive praise from the audience.

Along with Cooper, the other A-list celebrities that have made it into W magazine’s Best Performances issue include the likes of Keira Knightley, Benedict Cumberbatch, Emma Stone and Shailene Woodley. Just like Cooper’s all-white ensemble draping over his body, the creative team behind the magazine made sure that each star would also pose in a bizarre way. Knightley looks almost unrecognizable in her photo as she dons slick back hair and red flowers to match. Meanwhile, Cumberbatch’s photo in the magazine feels like what it would be like to live in a fun house.
