Bradley Cooper Debuts On Forbes’ Celebrity 100 List
Philly’s Bradley Cooper is among 20 new stars to hit Forbes‘ annual Celebrity 100 list. The list ranks the world’s most “powerful stars in the worlds of movies, TV, books, music and sports based on their estimated earnings and metrics that track fame, including social media power and impact.” While the proper list isn’t due out until Monday, Forbes offers a peek at what our Oscar-nominated golden boy pulled in this year:
We estimate the actor earned $46 million between June 2013 and June 2014. Like many actors, Cooper likes to mix up studio blockbusters, like TheHangover franchise, with smaller Oscar-bait films (he’s been nominated twice). But unlike some other actors, his Oscar bait makes tons of money. Last year’s AmericanHustle earned $250 million on a $40 million budget. You can next hear (but not see) Cooper in Marvel’s superhero flick Guardians of the Galaxy, where he’ll voice the gun-toting Rocket Racoon.
Other first-timers on the list include “Happy” hit-maker Pharrell Williams, late night host Jimmy Fallon, and Scandal star Kerry Washington. Check Forbes on Monday if you’re itching to see the full list.
