Bradley Cooper Faces Backlash and Ridicule as Critics Label Him a ‘Mama’s Boy’ for Taking 83-Year-Old Mother as Oscars Date

Amidst the glitz and glamour that envelopes the Oscars, it’s not uncommon for a few days to pass before fully absorbing the events of the ceremony. While highlights like the triumph of Oppenheimer and John Cena’s bold stage presence quickly dominated headlines worldwide, there’s a heartwarming moment involving Bradley Cooper that initially went unnoticed. Although it is now gaining the online attention it deserves, there are still a few naysayers.

For those following Cooper’s personal life, recent rumors about his relationship with Gigi Hadid have been circulating. According to sources, the pair is genuinely happy and successfully navigating their relationship while co-parenting. Despite this, it was clarified last week that Hadid wouldn’t be accompanying Cooper to the 96th Academy Awards; instead, she opted to stay home with their daughter.

Stepping in to accompany Cooper on the red carpet was another remarkable woman—none other than his 83-year-old mother, Gloria Campano.

Nominated for Best Actor for his outstanding performance in the critically acclaimed “Maestro,” Bradley Cooper graced the Oscars in a double-breasted black suit by Louis Vuitton. However, it was his charming mother who stole the spotlight at the Dolby Theater.

As soon as pictures of the mother-son duo surfaced on social media, an outpouring of delight followed. One fan expressed, “This is cute. He looks like his mom too.” Another chimed in, saying, “Anyone that brings their mom to an awards show is a winner in my book.” A third admirer added, “He loves his mom so much. Amazing son. ❤him 🙏.” The touching bond between Bradley Cooper and his mother resonated with many, earning admiration for the actor’s genuine affection and family values.

However, as is often the case, there were critics who attempted to portray Bradley Cooper’s decision to bring his mother to the Oscars as something other than a sweet and commendable gesture.

Surprisingly, some labeled it as “creepy.” On People’s Instagram post featuring Cooper and his mom, one person commented, “Again?? Cmon, it’s getting kinda creepy,” while another chimed in, saying, “Again? Getting kinda weird now.” A third added, “Good grief, can’t he get another date?…Mama’s boy.”

It’s important to note that there is nothing inherently wrong with a celebrity choosing to bring their mother to one of the world’s most prestigious awards ceremonies. In fact, many would see it as a heartwarming gesture. Bradley Cooper and his mother, Gloria Campano, share a special bond, evident in her recent move into her son’s Los Angeles home.

“I love having my mother living with me. I wouldn’t have it any other way,” Cooper expressed. The actor reportedly frequently invites his mother to join him on some of his travels as well.
