Ken Jeong Shares a Touching Story How Bradley Cooper Helped Him While Filming The Hangover
Bradley Cooper may have dominated the headlines on the internet when he starred for A Star is Born, but he also starred in an iconic movie a decade ago. One of his co-stars certainly didn’t forget his kindness when Cooper extended his hand to help him before. The famous comedian, Ken Jeong, shares a touching story of how Bradley Cooper helped him during his difficult time in life.
In the year 2008, Ken’s life turned upside down when he heard his wife, Tran Jeong, got diagnosed with breast cancer. A year later, Mrs. Jeong was going through her chemotherapy when Ken accepted Mr. Chow’s role in the hit comedy movie The Hangover.
Ken remembered how it was heartbreaking for him to leave Tran’s side as she underwent recovery while he’s shooting. That’s when Bradley offered to help him. Cooper volunteered to drive him from Vegas to LA to be with his beloved wife.
Ken also revealed how Bradley spent the holidays with them. He explained how his wife was too weak she couldn’t even travel in the holidays due to her chemotherapy sessions. Instead, Bradley invited them to come over his place and celebrate the holidays with his family. Ken and his wife went over, and he was grateful for Bradley since he helped him get through the most challenging time in his life.
Finding the Light
Ken says Bradley certainly helped him and his wife see the light they sought during their darkest times. Aside from leaning on his co-star for strength, they also focused on watching comedy series so they could remember how to smile despite the hardships they endured.
They couldn’t be happier when Tran survived cancer. Ken revealed it was a blessing from God and he thanked him for giving Bradley to guide them. As the news of Bradley’s immense success in the film industry continues to make some noise on the internet, he couldn’t help but be happy for him. Ken says Bradley deserves all the success he’s reaping in life.
The Phenomenal Movie
Bradley Cooper recently starred in the hit American musical movie “A Star is Born.” The film was a remake of the 1937 movie of the same name. It featured prominent stars like Lady Gaga, Andrew Dice Clay, Dave Chappelle, and Sam Elliott.
The story follows Cooper’s character, a hard-drinking musician, falling in love with a young singer played by Lady Gaga. The setting follows the romantic tale of two musicians as they embark on a journey to reach their dreams and love.
The movie dominated the box office during its release last October 5, 2018. As of February 2019, the film has total gross earnings of $210.8 million in Canada and the United States. A Star is Born also earned an astounding $214.5 million in the international box office – summing up to a staggering $425.3 million gross earnings worldwide.
The film got a high approval rating of 90% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 448 reviewers. According to the site, the film’s appealing lead cast, deft directions, touching musicals, as well as heart-wrenching love story moved the moviegoers’ hearts. The A Star is Born remake continues to win the audience’s approval as it also garnered numerous prestigious awards.
The Undeniable Chemistry
In the recently concluded Academy Awards, the film’s heart-warming song, “Shallow,” won best original song of the year. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper also made some noise when they delivered a heart-rending performance of the song.
The rumors about them together intensified when Lady Gaga thanked Cooper and said she couldn’t have sung that beautiful song without him as her duet. As millions of fans already ship the two as a canon couple, only time will tell whether or not they make it official in the future.
