As most of you know, Brad Pitt ruined his marriage to Angelina Jolie and even damaged his relationship with their eldest son Maddox, all thanks to his struggles with alcohol.
Thankfully, he’s finally sober and appears to be in a really healthy place, and apparently Bradley Cooper played a major role in Pitt’s sobriety.
Brad won Best Supporting Actor at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala on Wednesday night, and after being handed the award and hugging it out, he praised Bradley in his speech for being a great dad … and a great friend.
Pitt said Cooper rushed to the event to be there for him. He told the audience that he “got sober because of this guy, and every day has been happier ever since.”
“I love you, and I thank you,” he told Cooper.
We knew Pitt was going to AA meetings for the past year or so, but we did not know Cooper played such a big part in his recovery.
It’s not often you build such a real friendship like that in Hollywood. Good on both of them. Hopefully Cooper can keep Pitt in line.[mashshare]
