Bradley Cooper tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Buzz Bissinger that his past struggles—including addiction, the wrenching loss of his father, and the restlessness of a career that went so long unfulfilled—have helped him prepare for his most challenging role yet, as Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle in Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper. “Losing someone close to me. Going through love and loss . . . knowing what’s important,” Cooper tells Bissinger. “Realizing that the bottom line is that all I got is me, so it’s about time to stop trying to be something that I think you would want me to be. Or that would give me what I think I need. As you get older, thank God, your body deteriorates, but your soul sort of flourishes.”
