Bradley Cooper Is Barely Recognizable with New Mustache

Bradley Cooper has officially ditched his 5 o’clock shadow for a more retro look, and we barely even recognize him.

The 44-year-old actor was recently spotted with a brand-new mustache while out with his 2-year-old daughter, Lea. When the news broke online, fans immediately circulated the photo on Twitter as they low-key mourned the loss of his A Star Is Born look. (#JacksonMaine4Ever)

To be fair, this isn’t the first time that Cooper has donned a mustache. However, it’s usually far less grown out and accompanied by a beard. Now that it’s solo, he looks straight out of the ’70s.

It’s important to point out that Cooper’s new facial hair is probably for an upcoming role in a movie or TV show. However, that didn’t stop Twitter from pointing out the actor’s uncanny resemblance to comedian Jeff Foxworthy.

Don’t believe us? Take a look at the side-by-side photo below to see for yourself.

Some users stated the obvious, writing, “Does anyone else think that Bradley Cooper currently looks like 1990’s Jeff Foxworthy?” Others brought up the possibility of Cooper playing the comedian in a biographical movie: “I do always check out a Bradley Cooper movie but since when was he doing the Jeff Foxworthy Lifestory?”

Although Foxworthy hasn’t commented on the potential biopic, he did respond to an Instagram post and confirmed that his wife, Pamela Gregg, is thrilled with the comparison to Cooper.

“My wife is so happy right now!” he wrote in a comment.

Currently taking predictions on how long it’ll take Cooper to shave. (Our money is on one month.)
