He achieved fame with his role in The Hangover trilogy (2009–13), later starring in The A-Team (2010), Limitless (2011), Silver Linings Playbook (2012), The Place Beyond the Pines (2013) and American Hustle (2013), and provided the voice of Rocket Raccoon in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). His work in Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle earned him Academy Award nominations for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, respectively. In 2011, People magazine named him the "Hottest Man Alive".

Cooper was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and grew up in nearby Jenkintown, Pennsylvania. His mother, Gloria (née Campano), is of Italian descent and worked for the local NBC affiliate. His father, Charles Cooper, who died in 2011 at 71, was of Irish descent, and worked as a stockbroker for Merrill Lynch. He has an older sister named Holly. Cooper had cholesteatoma in his ear soon after his birth and punctured it when he started diving at a young age. He was raised Catholic. While attending Germantown Academy, Cooper worked at the Philadelphia Daily News.


After graduating from Germantown Academy in 1993, Cooper attended Villanova University for his first year, then transferred to Georgetown University, from which he graduated with honors with a BA in English in 1997. Cooper became fluent in French at Georgetown and spent six months as an exchange student in Aix-en-Provence, France. Later in 2000, he received an MFA in acting from Actors Studio Drama School at The New School (now the Actors Studio Drama School at Pace University) in New York City. While he was studying at The New School, Cooper worked as a doorman at the Morgans Hotel.
