1 February 2013 / 3 years 8 months ago

Bradley Cooper insists he still leads a "normal" life and one of his favourite things to do is go to the cinema alone.The 'Silver Linings Playbook' actor - who has been single since splitting from Zoe Saldana - insists that, despite his celebrity status, he lives a very "normal" life and still enjoys the same pastimes he did before finding fame.He said: "One of the things I love doing is to go to a theatre and watch a movie by myself. My life's very normal."Bradley also spoke his movie 'Silver Linings Playbook' - which also stars Jennifer Lawrence and has been nominated for eight academy Awards.The 38-year-old star enjoyed the entire filming process especially because he got to reunite with his 'Limitless' co-star Robert De Niro - who played his character's father.He told Australia's Herald Sun newspaper: "It was extremely soothing to be able to say 'Dad' to him."I trust and love him and know he's going to bring the best out of me."Bradley - who has been nominated for an Oscar for his work on the film - plays a bipolar disorder sufferer and is proud of how people can relate to the character, and is hopeful the movie can remove the "stigma" around mental illness.Speaking on 'Hardball', he said: "I've gone around to many cities around the country and people are talking about, how, 'I actually feel like this film sees who I am.'"It's heavily stigmatized. It's not a very treatable disease. It's a condition, if we liken it to cancer, diagnosed at stage four, well ... that's way too late. So hopefully, a movie like this will help it become, you know, [more treatable] in the onset."
