You Have No Idea How Much Bradley Cooper’s Earnings From ‘A Star Is Born’ Are…
Although not completely unheard of, it’s still pretty rare to see an Oscar best film front-runner earn big at the box office these days. But “A Star Is Born” is clearly not your typical Oscar bait movie.
The film is a passion project and the directorial debut of actor Bradley Cooper, whose successful transition from comedic and romantic roles led to fantastic performances in films like “Silver Linings Playbook” and “American Sniper”.
Cooper broke out into the scene with his co-starring role in the R-rated buddy film “The Hangover” in 2009 and got paid $600,000 for it. His net worth has only increased ever since making him a very wealthy man.
Recently, he got even wealthier after the financial success of his new film. Let’s find out just how much he earned.
BOX OFFICE SALES
The Oscar-nominated actor played a triple role in making his debut film as its director/actor/producer starting out with a $36 million budget to fund it. While this number may appear big to some, it’s actually a pretty small amount for a Hollywood movie.
Fortunately, Cooper’s gamble paid off really big after his film brought back in $425 million as of latest thanks in part to Cooper and Lady Gaga’s combined star power and fan base.
Before the film’s success, Cooper was reportedly being paid around $15 to 20 million per movie but that number is definitely increasing. And although he didn’t reveal how much he paid himself for his triple role in the film, some Hollywood insiders are betting that his recent earnings most likely doubled his net worth.
CURRENT NET WORTH
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Cooper currently sits on a fortune amounting to $100 million, not yet considering his recent profits, thanks to earnings from the blockbuster hits he has starred in.
After The Hangover made him a household name, Cooper emerged as 2014’s third-highest paid actor bringing home $46 million just right behind other Hollywood giants (pun intended) Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Robert Downey Jr.
He would place a spot lower the following year with $41.5 million in earnings for films and television shows like “Aloha” and “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp”.
However, a bulk of his net worth was actually made behind the scenes as he ventured further into the entertainment business as an executive producer to some of the films he also starred in. This proved to be a wise career move for the actor turned director and producer.
Although Cooper is already filthy rich, his net worth pales in comparison to that of his co-star Lady Gaga, who has a reported net worth of $300 million. This number doesn’t include her supposed $50 million paycheck from her and Cooper’s collaboration.
But if relationship gossips are true, these two powerhouses might soon join assets.
