The Success of Bradley Cooper as a Writer
Ever notice Bradley Cooper plays a struggling writer in The Words and Limitless? In both movies, he gives up and cheats to success. He uses a super-drug in Limitless. And in The Words, his literary opiate was plagiarism. But I almost forgot that Cooper was also a writer in Alias. As a journalist, his morality and grit was remarkable. 1 out of 3 ain’t bad. Like Cooper, I see myself in all three roles. Not as a nosey, news-reporting, druggie plagiarist, but struggling writer with a desire to succeed. The temptations. The fight. The Words. It’s all real.
