CONCORD, NC - MAY 30: Actors Bradley Cooper (R) and Jessica Biel (L) pose with Kasey Kahne (C), driver of the #9 Budweiser/Armed Forces Tribute Ford, in the team hauler prior to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway on May 30, 2010 in Concord, North Carolina.

Let’s face it, no matter how hard we try and hate Bradley Cooper for being an insanely successful, Oscar-nominated actor who women swoon over, it’s time to give up. The guy is self-deprecating, humble, funny, willing to make fun of himself and he seems to always do awesome stuff that makes us respect him even more. Case in point, yesterday Cooper and New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman visited Boston Marathon bombing victim Jeff Bauman Jr. in the hospital. Edelman tweeted a picture of the meeting. Bauman was at the marathon to watch his girlfriend run on Monday, and had to have both his legs amputated as a result of injuries sustained during the explosions. When he came to in the hospital, the 27-year-old immediately provided a description of one of the bombers to the FBI. His identification helped narrow the search. Bauman is one of the many heroes that have emerged from this week’s horrific events in Boston. Cooper is in Boston shooting director David O. Russell’s “American Hustle,” which also stars Christian Bale and Jennifer Lawrence.
