Bradley Cooper Adorably Reveals His Favorite Birthday Was at McDonald’s (Video)

There’s something very comforting about knowing stars like fast food just as much as we do—and Bradley Cooper is no exception.

To celebrate his 41st birthday on Tuesday, W Magazine’s The Scene asked Cooper about his most memorable celebration and his answer couldn’t be more perfect.

“I’m just going to tell you the first thing that comes in my head,” said the actor. “It was McDonald’s. We used to have birthdays at McDonald’s when I was growing up.”

“That was a big thing—McDonald’s or like at a roller skating rink,” he continued. “But I really remember enjoying those McDonald’s birthdays.”

Cooper recalled his love for eating Big Macs and Egg McMuffins on his way to the Jersey shore but his true appreciation for the golden arches came down to the details.

“I just loved the little trays with the party, they would come in boxes,” he said. “Every kid would have little party boxes that you would then eat all your stuff in.”

Though his palate may not have been up to the standards of the world famous chef Cooper played in his latest film Burnt, it was good enough for his eight-year-old self.

“I don’t know what it says that I had to go back to eight years old to tell you my favorite birthday,” he said with a laugh.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
