Yes he lost the Oscar but was the lead in the movie Silver Linings Playbook. He is now considered a serious actor by also being nominated for a Golden Glove Award given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Well, he didn’t win this one either. In fact his co-star Jennifer Lawrence won both the Golden Globe and the Oscar for her performance in the same movie. She couldn’t win with out someone to talk to and she talked and screamed at Bradley throughout the entire movie so, let’s give him some credit for her wins after all, I’m writing about him today.
Just like the character he played in the movie coming home to Philadelphia is easy since that is where he was born and raised. Having lived in the small town of Jenkintown, the only movie theater there is currently playing his movie. He grew up there to be over six feet tall and spent time with his Italian mother Gloria who was a stay at home mom. His sister Holly was older than him and his father was a Irish stock broker. After work, he would watch movies with his father and it was then that he decided that he wanted to be an actor when he grew up.
That movie made him a star but playing in The Hangover in 2009 made him rich. The Hangover and its sequel made over a Billion dollars worldwide. Part III comes out next May. He is still known as one of the nicest guys in Hollywood. He is sad because his father died last year from a long illness. No amount of his money was able to save the guy who gave him the inspiration to be an actor. He plans to keep this career and maybe someday he will win the awards for acting as well as make top dollar acting.
