Bradley Cooper Salary History: Believe it or not, Bradley and the other Hangover actors were not the studios' first choices of star talent. Director Todd Phillips insisted they be hired and covered their salaries which amounted to less than $1 million total. The studio had such low expectations for the movie that it didn't think to sign the actors to sequel contracts. When the movie became a smash hit, the stars were able to score $5 million apiece for #2 and $10 million apiece for #3. Bradley Cooper is one of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood today. Bradley can earn as much as $20 million for a movie, but also takes smaller upfront salaries in exchange for revenue participation. Between June 2018 and June 2019, Bradley earned $60 million, which made him one of the 5 highest-paid actors on the planet. His monster earnings during that period were due to the fact that he did not take a salary for his directorial debut "A Star Is Born" which went on to earn $434 million globally. He also earned backend points off "Avengers: Endgame" for his role as Rocket in the franchise.
Real Estate: In December 2004, Cooper bought a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,462 sq ft home in Marina Del Rey, California for $1.199 million.
Sometime after that, he purchased a mansion in Pacific Palisades, California for about $4.4 million, which he shared with Irina Shayk until their breakup.
