Since appearing in 2009’s hit comedy The Hangover, Bradley Cooper’s career has truly blasted off. He was nominated for Best Comedic Performance at the MTV awards and starred as Face in the film version of the A-Team. As if that wasn’t enough, he dated Renee Zellweger for a time, and most recently received that most prestigious of accolades, People magazine’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’. It’s safe to say life is pretty good for Bradley Cooper right now.
With such success, and youthful good looks to boot, it would be easy to peg Cooper as another wet-behind-the-ears twenty-something making his mark on Hollywood, but the truth is he’s 36 years old and no spring-chicken. A fact that the Daily Mail was only too happy to remind him of in their recent picture-heavy article covering his alleged date in Paris with French Actress Melanie Laurent, whose biggest film so far is Quentin Tarentino’s Inglorious Basterds.
“It appears Cooper may be succumbing to a rapidly receding hairline,” the Daily Mail pointed out helpfully, “The actor’s hair looked significantly less full than it did in thriller Limitless earlier this year, with what seemed to be a slight bald patch at the front.”
Bradley Cooper’s hairline
Looking at the pictures, it’s hard to deny that Cooper has a receding hairline, with possible thinning taking place too, but the Mail’s assertion of a ‘bald patch’ might be put down to a trick of the light and journalistic exuberance on the part of the newspaper. The ‘contrast’ between these candid pictures of him in Paris and his ‘fuller’ hair in recent thriller Limitless, could also be attributed to his not having a team of movie stylists working behind the scenes to enhance his hair for a casual dinner date.
Were he a 20 year-old Hollywood heartthrob at the start of his career, this hair loss might be more surprising (though not unheard of), but at the ripe age of 36, Cooper is in the prime time for genetic hair loss.
Like many men his age, the actor appears to be suffering from a slight case of Male Pattern Baldness, though judging by recent pictures it is relatively mild compared to that suffered by others. Many men suffer from hair loss due to Male Pattern Baldness from their early thirties onwards, while for some men it can start as early as their twenties. By the age of 50, it has been estimated that 50% of men will suffer from Male Pattern Baldness to some extent.
Male Pattern Baldness is an entirely natural and hereditary process which results in hair loss to varying degrees. It may take the form of a gradually receding hairline, as it has with Bradley Cooper, or it may result in general thinning across the crown or even balding in a variety of common patterns. The exact amount and distribution of hair loss differs from person to person, but the causes are the same.
While it is a natural process, that doesn’t mean that men experiencing it have to accept it and let nature take its course. At the moment it would appear that Bradley Cooper has little to worry about, particularly as he’s just been voted ‘Sexiest Man Alive’, but as this form of hair loss is progressive, it may be an idea to act sooner rather than later, to save his hair while he can.
