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.
