Bradley Cooper has said that he doesn't care about small things like winning the Oscar, ever since he lost his father.
Bradley Cooper has been nominated for the Best Actor award for his performance as Pat Solitano in Silver Linings Playbook.
The 38-year-old actor told British GQ that winning an Oscar would have changed nothing as the things in his life that aren't fulfilled will not be fulfilled, ABC News reported.
The Oscar nominated star asserted that career-wise it is better that he didn't win one.
Cooper said that he watched his father dying and he was there by his bed watching him, breathing with him, and then he saw his last breath and he was gone.
The Silver Linings Playbook star said that he experienced the whole thing, which was a watershed moment that he was privileged to experience and has ever been the same since.
He added that his father gave him two gifts having him and dying with him, adding that he used to be the kid, who got the shakes if he had to talk in public but now he just doesn't get nervous about stuff as he can't control everything.
