Students swooned over Bradley Cooper’s visit to Georgetown.
Cooper visited his old college to give a speech about his wisdom on failure and success. Students were more interested in touching him, than listening to him.
The 35-year-old actor and Georgetown graduate completed his degree as in English major back in 1997. Originally rejected, Cooper transferred to what he describes as his dream school after a year at Villanova. It was in Georgetown that Cooper caught the acting bug after all, when he starred in Georgetown’s Dangerous Liasons production.
The Hangover and Wedding Crashers star proudly told students not to fear failure, “Just fall on your face. Who cares? Really, it’s the only way you’re going to learn. God help you if you never fail.”
Even with his inspirational speech, students were more interested in getting a piece of Cooper. According to the student newspaper, The Hoya, one student asked for, and was given, his water bottle. Cooper declined when another reportedly asked him to take his shirt off, so the student asked for a sock instead.
Poor polite Cooper declined another student’s request to have him as her date to the school’s Diplomatic Ball next spring. Before asking her question, another girl professed that Cooper is “the most gorgeous man on earth.”
I wonder what Cooper’s girlfriend, Renée Zellweger, had to say about all the commotion!
