While Bradley Cooper's hairdo in "American Hustle" has been getting plenty of attention, it's his real-life coif that has the Oscar-nominated actor preoccupied. Sources tell Radar Online that Cooper "is so anxious about his receding hairline that he's turned to [hair loss medication] Propecia."
He has a lot of bald guys in his family, so he's been on Propecia for a couple of years, and to his delight it seems to be working. He's gotten so serious about maintaining his mane, in fact, that on the set of the most recent "Hangover" movie, he had a dedicated hairstylist, "a first for the franchise and something that was demanded by Bradley."
Hair is something of a theme for Cooper. In a recent interview with Metro, he talked about his "American Hustle" character and his hair. “I wanted to look different, maybe unrecognizable. David’s idea was he curls his own hair. It’s an odd thing to do and it’s probably stress related,” he said.
