Bradley Cooper has admitted to battling a severe addiction to cocaine in the early years of his career, revealing that he became 'so lost' in substance abuse as a means of dealing with low self-esteem after he was demoted from a lead role in TV series Alias.

Cooper, 47, opened up about his addictions on Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes' podcast Smartless, explaining that being demoted to a guest star in the show's third season completely demoralized him and contributed to him developing a 'problem with drugs and alcohol.'

'I was so lost and I was addicted to cocaine — that was the other thing,' he said of the trying time when his career seemed adrift.

I Call True: Must ahve been hard to take a step back in his career like that, brave of him to talk about it.

From the outside it looked like he had it all, and in his later career he has, but behind the scenes not so much

I mean The Hangover was the making of him and is still one of my favourite 'dumb' movies to watch
