Bradley Cooper covers the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter in an interview where he talks about his struggles with drugs and alcohol.

The star, who's new movie The Words revealed that he has been sober for more than seven years claims he has insecurities.

“I was so concerned what you thought of me, how I was coming across, how I would survive the day. I always felt like an outsider. I just lived in my head.”

“I realized I wasn’t going to live up to my potential, and that scared the hell out of me. I thought, ‘Wow, I’m actually gonna ruin my life; I’m really gonna ruin it.’”

“I remember looking at my life, my apartment, my dogs, and I thought, ‘What’s happening?’” Cooper says.

Looks like life for Bradley has turned himself around and he's on top of the world right now!
