Amy Schumer, whose new show Inside Amy Schumer debuted Tuesday night, was pulling all kinds of crazy shenanigans on the red carpet of last night’s Time 100 gala in New York City. You likely saw this on social media, where she pretended to fall flat on her face in front of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West:

But Kimye weren’t the only celebrities subject to her buffoonery: Bradley Cooper got a taste of it, too. According to Business Insider, she started heckling the Jenkintown star right as he walked onto the red carpet, yelling his name like one of the fans waiting in line to see him. Cooper finally gave her a hug and posed for a photograph, but when he left, she told the press line that, “We’re engaged!”

Philly’s Bradley Cooper and Kevin Hart Score 2015 MTV Movie Awards

The Jenkintown star took home the prize for Best Male Performance for his portrayal of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle in American Sniper. He was there to accept the award, which he dedicated to Kyle. “Thank you, thank you. I want to thank MTV and the fans. It’s because of you that we have brought awareness for what the men and women in the military do everyday for us. Chris Kyle would have been 41 this week. Chris, this is for you.”

To win the award, Cooper beat out beat out Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy), Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars), Channing Tatum (Foxcatcher) and Downingtown, Pa-native Miles Teller (Whiplash).

Fellow comedian Kevin Hart also took home an award last night: the special Comedic Genius Award. His speech pulled at some heartstrings, too: “I wanna thank my fiancée for being my rock right now. … I wanna thank my ex-wife for giving me these two kids who are my best friends right now; Heaven for being the most amazing daughter, Hendrix for being the most amazing son. My kids, I’m doing all of this for them. I’m trying to leave a legacy for them. Last but not least my fans—this is for y’all, I love y’all.”

Bradley Cooper’s 5 Best Performances

It might seem as if he just sprang out of the kiln with 2009’s The Hangover, but Jenkintown’s Bradley Cooper has actually been a professional actor since 1999. Now, with his thoroughly convincing turn as Chris Kyle in American Sniper—officially the highest-grossing film released in 2014—Mr. Cooper is finally coming in to the rarefied air of some of our most celebrated male actors. That isn’t to say that everything he’s made has been gold (ahem, Serena), in fact, it’s really only in recent years that he’s been allowed to showcase his considerable talents in serious films. Regardless, here are our picks for his five best performances to date, and where you might be able to see them, in chronological order.

Bradley Cooper just received a special gift from his Hangover co-star and champion boxer Mike Tyson. And no, it wasn’t a chunk of Evander Holyfield’s ear.

Yesterday on Live with Kelly and Michael, Tyson explained that he gifted the Jenkintown star one of the belts he won when he was crowned World Boxing Council (WBC)’s heavyweight world champion in the ’80s. According to Tyson, he had his daughter take it to Cooper when she attended a recent performance of The Elephant Man, which Cooper was starring in on Broadway.

Tyson said he wanted to give Cooper the memento, “because he deserves it … Look at what he’s accomplished since The Hangover. Look at how far he’s come … ”

Tyson held his WBC heavyweight world champion title from 1986 to 1990, when he lost it to Buster Douglas. He turned around and won it again in 1996.
