Welcome back to Best and Worst Celebrity Looks of the Week! Time once again to take a gander at what celebs are wearing and dub someone BEST, WORST, and WTF. My picks are at the bottom. Let’s get right to it!

And there we have it. What do we think? No big surprises there, I don’t think. Who do we think will take the big awards? I think 12 Years a Slave has got Best Picture on lock, but anything could happen. The Oscars will be held on March 2nd, so there’s plenty of time to make your predictiongs.
Bradley Cooper wasn’t always the big name he is today. At one point, he played a dude in Sex and the City who taunted Carrie for looking crappy on a magazine cover. Remember that? Yeah, that was him. I still think it’s his best role to date.
So while he’s moved on to bigger things and wants to settle down and have kids, he had to overcome a major drug addiction. He was very frank with QG (although declined to say which drugs exactly he was doing, hmmm). From GQ (their questions are italicised):
In 2006, he got married—to the actress Jennifer Esposito—and then divorced, four months later. A year or two before that, he’d gotten sober after a bad run with alcohol and drugs, the varieties of which he declines to specify. He was 29, confronting the fact that “if I continued it, I was really going to sabotage my whole life.”
Did it ever have any effect on your work?
“I mean, it has to have. And to this day, of course, because it’s a life experience. And all I do is bring life experience. That’s all anybody really does. It’s inescapable.”
But it was never like, “Oh, I didn’t show up on set.”
“Oh no. No, no, no, no, no, no. No, never. No. You mean like, in a logistic point of view, like: ‘He’s late?’ No, no, no.”
So it was more of a personal thing—it wasn’t like work was getting f-cked up?
“No, I think work was getting f-cked up.”
This sheds some light on why he’s been living with his mom for over 2 years. Maybe she’s a really good anchor for him and keeps him healthy and sober. Whatever works, man.
Bradley Cooper was apparently the fifth hottest actor of 2013, so he should have no problem fulfilling his desire to be a dad. His own father died two years ago, but he thinks having kids would make his dad proud of him and that he’d learn a lot from the experience.
From Look Magazine:
“I would love to be a father! And I know my own dad would have been very proud of me if I start a family.
“Raising me and my sister Holly was his greatest joy in life and I know that’s my next step.”
Well, good for him! Last I heard, he was perhaps maybe sorta dating Rachel McAdams but I think that ship has sailed since she’s obviously reuniting with Ryan Gosling so they can live their real life Notebook romance. I dunno, maybe Bradley can adopt with Gerard Butler? LOL.
Never mind that it’s only August. Zimbio polled their readers and came up with the hottest 25 actors of 2013. Here’s who they are. Where do you stand? Do you agree or disagree? Number one was surprising to me, in the, “let pause and think, ‘…really?’” way. And can you guess who made the top 10 that also made the top 10 in the Ugliest Men list?

Watching Andy Murray at Wimbledon was great for so many reasons – mostly because he won, but also because Bradley Cooper and Gerard Butler were the couple to watch. I mean, look at these two! They’re wearing matching powder blue suits! They’re taking a selfie! What’s not to love here?
The photo went viral, of course, but apparently Gerard Butler has no idea and in fact… doesn’t use the internet and had no idea?
From Digital Spy:
“I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t go on the internet, so I don’t know what [a 'selfie'] is.”
The 300 star also joked about the duo’s matching suits, saying: “Bradley and I are friends. [The matching outfits] was coincidence. It was a little embarrassing. We didn’t mention it at the time.
“We gave each other a hug, then looked down and went, ‘Oh, s**t’.”
I kinda don’t believe anyone that’s not a newborn or over the age of 80 doesn’t go on the internet, so I call bullshit on that one and kinda don’t understand the pont of that lie, but whatever. Also, Jeremy Piven was there and was looking on at this lovely spectacle and had something to say about it:
“I love both of them, they’re both great guys and they appreciate the attention.
“They were wearing powder blue outfits, they looked like they were groomsmen – they are the dream.”
They ARE the dream, you’re totally right, Jeremy Piven. I think that’s the only thing you’ve ever said that hasn’t made me want to punch you in the face.
Listen, there’s nothing funny about ice cream, guys. Ice cream is extremely serious business. What is funny, however, is the fact that Bradley Cooper is promoting ice cream – Häagen-Dazs in particular. He’s already filmed an ad for the company (seen above) and might even do a few more.
I guess if you’re going to go down the route of becoming the face of a snack food, Häagen-Dazs is a pretty good direction to go in. Their Vanilla Bean is out of this world, I have to admit. It’s also about 90,000 calories and 650 grams of fat (because yes, I have to eat the whole pint in one sitting) and really preys upon my lactose sensitivity, so I’m not sure I can support this.
Häagen-Dazs president David Clark said:
“Bradley Cooper is the first celebrity to appear in a Häagen-Dazs campaign and is a perfect match for the brand, epitomising class and style.”
