Bradley Cooper has sensationally revealed he came within inches of death during his cocaine and alcohol addiction nightmare.
The “Hangover” megastar, 48, laid bare his out-of-control drug abuse in a bombshell tell-all on TV survivalist Bear Grylls’ hit show.
Asked by Grylls, 49, about his “wild years”, Cooper confessed: “In terms of alcohol and drugs, yeah. But I was lucky. I got sober at 29 years old and I’ve been sober for 19 years.”
He went on: “I was weeks from dying. I severed my Achilles tendon and got fired from ‘Alias’. I was so desperate I even drank in the morning and did loads of coke.
“I have my roommate Will Arnett to thank for dragging me to rehab in 2004. He saved my life.”
Cooper also revealed he hit rock bottom again after his dad died in his arms from lung cancer in 2011.
He said: “I had a nihilistic attitude to life. I thought ‘I’m going to die’. For a bit, it wasn’t great.
“But I knew I had to embrace who I was and find peace with that. Thank God I made it through.”
Cooper channeled his addict past into his Oscar-nominated role opposite Lady Gaga in 2018’s ‘A Star Is Born’.
He said: “It made it easier to really let myself go. Thank goodness I was at a place where I could do that.”
Next up for Cooper is controversial Netflix flick ‘Maestro’ — in which he wears a massive fake nose to play Leonard Bernstein.
The prosthetic has sparked a “Jewface” row online, despite support from Bernstein’s kids.
Cooper said: “I hope I keep getting these great roles. It’s been a real blessing for me.”
