Bradley Cooper reveals an A-list director MOCKED his Oscar nominations: 'Bro, why are you such an a**hole? Like, go f**k yourself'

Bradley Cooper got candid in a recent interview, revealing a prickly interaction with an unnamed director that angered him.

The 47-year-old actor and director appeared on Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes' podcast Smartless, where he opened up about an interaction four years ago.

The actor said he was at a party, when, at the time, he had seven Oscar nominations, when this director bashed his work, while comparing it to an actress Cooper says is a 'dear friend.'

Cooper was chatting with the hosts when he revealed that he never forgets, 'anything mean anyone has ever said,' about him or his work.

'It's catalogued, I can tell exactly where I was, and if they challenge the verbage, the sentence structure, I'm like, 'No, bro, that's not what you said,' Cooper admitted.

He added he was at a CAA party four years ago, when, at that time, he had seven Oscar nominations, which he admits, 'is crazy, it's nuts.'

'This director guy - I'm standing next to a woman, who's a dear friend and an actress,' who he said has three Oscar nominations.

'He was like, "What world are we living in where you have seven nominations and she's only got three? What is wrong?' Cooper recalled. 

'I was like, "I f***ing hate this business." I'm like, 'Bro, why are you such an a**hole? Like, go f**k yourself,"' Cooper said.

Arnett admitted, 'I would never f***ing forget that. I would make it a point to f***ing crush that person.' 

Cooper added he was at the same CAA party, but years earlier for his first nomination for Silver Linings Playbook, where he was up against Daniel Day-Lewis and Denzel Washington.

Cooper revealed that he ran into a 'hero actress' who he also didn't name and said he didn't know at all, who mocked his work as well.

'This hero female actress, that I didn't know at all, comes up to me, she goes, "I saw your movie. You deserve the nom." I was like, "What? I'm sorry, what?" "The nom,"' he said.

'Then like 10, 20 minutes later — I'm not kidding — I pass her going to the bathroom and she mouths it: "The nom," meaning like don't win, you're never gonna win," Cooper explained.

'I remember [thinking], "What the f--- is this town?"' Cooper said, as Arnett explained, '80% of the interactions have to do with them, it's got nothing to do with you,' as Hayes added, 'anytime anyone says anything negative it's about their own self-hatred.'  

'Can you imagine saying that to somebody? You've got to be f***ed up to do that,' Cooper said
