Bradley Cooper makes the Celebrity 100 for the second time this year thanks to his ability to balance popcorn cheese such as “Aloha” with Oscar-worthy fare including “American Sniper.” Cooper produced and starred in the latter, which was directed by Clint Eastwood after Steven Spielberg passed on the military epic. The only hangover from the bro trilogy Cooper hit the big time with is his production company, which he runs with “Hangover” director Todd Phillips.
