Bradley Cooper has recently appeared at the Oscars with a new date and his fans have shared some strong opinions about the pair. Some thought it was sweet, but some others thought his date of choice was the reason that he was unable to settle down. Bradley Cooper made a heartwarming appearance at the 2024 Oscars, not with a Hollywood starlet by his side, but with his beloved mother, Gloria Campano. In what turned into a memorable outing, Cooper, dressed in a double-breasted black suit from Louis Vuitton, was accompanied by Campano, who at 83, turned heads in her chic ensemble. Campano’s chose a sleek black dress paired with a matching blazer, accented by a dazzling broach. She completed her look with a pair of blue-lensed sunglasses, adding a modern twist to her classic outfit. Fans immediately took to social media to express their admiration for the duo, with comments ranging from heartwarming to humorous.

One fan noted, “This is cute. He looks like his mom too,” highlighting the resemblance between Cooper and Campano. Another, initially mistaking Campano for another celebrity, exclaimed, “I swear I thought that was Jennifer Aniston.” Another joked “He’s got a pocket mom” as a lighthearted way to reference Campano’s stature in comparison to her son’s. However, not all comments were in favor of Cooper’s choice of date. Some saw it as an opportunity to critique, with remarks like “Good grief, can’t he get another date?…Mama’s boy” and suggestions that it was time for Cooper to grow up and leave his mother at home when he attended awards ceremonies. One even thought that the reason Cooper could not keep a relationship was because of his relationship with his mother. Despite the varied reactions, it’s evident that Campano holds a special place in Cooper’s life. Not only is she a significant figure due to her career as a former NBC affiliate, but she has also recently moved in with Cooper in Los Angeles. This decision reflects Cooper’s dedication to his family, as he openly cherishes the close relationship he shares with his mother. “I love having my mother living with me. I wouldn’t have it any other way,” Cooper shared, emphasizing the deep bond they share. This connection extends beyond daily living, as Cooper often invites his mother to accompany him on his travels, including a month spent together in Paris. Cooper’s close relationship with his mother provides a window into how he navigates the challenges of life, including his battles with depression and anxiety. The passing of his father in 2011 marked a significant turning point for Cooper, reshaping his perspective death, which he previously feared.
