Bradley Cooper Reacts to Will Smith Saying He's 'So Beautiful'

Will Smith is swooning over Bradley Cooper!

On Tuesday night (March 15), the two actors both attended the 2022 National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City where Will was honored with the Best Actor award for his role in King Richard.

While on stage giving his acceptance speech, Will took a moment to gush over Bradley.

“I look at Bradley Cooper,” Will started, according to USA Today.

“I’ve seen pictures of him when he was young. He didn’t look like this! He grew into that!” Will continued. “He let the dream blossom inside of him! I can’t even concentrate, he’s so beautiful.”

Later in the show, Bradley took to the stage to honor his Licorice Pizza co-stars Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman with the award for Best Breakthrough Performance, but first decided to react to Will‘s comments.

“I’m not gonna forget that, Will,” Bradley said with a smirk.

It was recently announced that this actor will be paying Bradley Cooper‘s lover in a new movie.

Three Olympic All-Around Champions Headline U.S. Classic Field

Simone Biles

Gymnastics fans are in for a massive treat at the U.S. Classic this weekend in Hartford, where the three most recent Olympic all-around champions – Gabby Douglas (London 2012), Simone Biles (Rio 2016), and Sunisa Lee (Tokyo 2020) – will headline a field of 50 senior athletes that also includes Olympic and world medalists Skye Blakely, Jade Carey, Jordan Chiles, Kayla DiCello, Shilese Jones, Joscelyn Roberson, Leanne Wong, and Lexi Zeiss.

The U.S. Classic acts as the final chance to earn a spot at the U.S. national championships, but with nearly all of the athletes we’ll see here already qualified, this year’s competition will be more of a practice round for the more important meets in the lead-up to the Olympic Games, with both nationals and trials coming up over the next month.

With this in mind, I’d expect many of the top competitors to show up not fully prepared, but ready to tackle some of the routines they’re hoping will make them contenders for the team next month, but I also wouldn’t be surprised to see a few of them show up looking to make a statement with their readiness and ability to stun this early on. This tactic doesn’t always work, as we sometimes see the U.S. Classic winners not even make the major international teams they’re after, but the Olympic year is always a little different, and I think we’ll be in for a few big all-around treats this year as well.

My expectations will remain on the low side, however, as the U.S. Classic is typically where we also see the most uncharacteristic mistakes as athletes are often shaking off the dust and trying to fight through early season nerves while also sometimes attempting new skills that don’t always go as planned. But again, while this competition could work in favor for some of the athletes on the bubble of potentially being named to the Olympic team, a weak performance here will not count anyone out.

For the few who do need to qualify to nationals, senior gymnasts must earn a 51.000 all-around score, a 39.000 three-event score, or a 26.400 two-event score, while juniors must earn a 49.500 all-around score.

The U.S. Classic and the associated Hopes Championships will be held at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut, beginning on May 17 with with the Hopes Championships and the junior women’s competition, and concluding on May 18 with two sessions of senior competition. Complete streaming details are available thanks to USA Gymnastics, and a full list of competitors is below.
