Bradley Cooper's acting family
Bradley Cooper likes making movies with Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro because they are "family" to him
Bradley Cooper says Robert De Niro and Jennifer Lawrence are like "family" to him.
The 41-year-old actor reunited with his former co-stars again on their latest movie 'Joy' and he enjoys collaborating with people he has previously worked with because it is so comfortable.
He said: "Bob and I worked together on 'Limitless' so we had become friends and I met Jen on 'Silver Linings Playbook'.
"It feels very much like a family when you make movies with the same people."
And the 'American Hustle' star is always blown away by 25-year-old Jennifer's talent.
He said: "She's an incredibly actor who is very gifted and perfect for just about any role.
"That's a rarity - and she's just so young."
Despite his own years of success, Bradley admits some of it can be attributed to pure luck.
He said: "It's a mixture of hard work and luck. I'd be a fool to say I haven't been very lucky, though I do work very hard."
But he also admitted he has a lot of "doubt" about his abilities.
He told Britain's Star magazine: "There's something deep inside me that has given me the traction to be able to push forward.
"There has to be a deep belief in oneself, but with that comes a lot of doubt."
