Bradley Cooper A Metallica Fan? Drummer Lars Ulrich Says Actor Flies Out To Concerts

Believe it or not, Bradley Cooper is a fan of heavy metal.

Metallica's drummer, Lars Ulrich, stopped by HuffPost Live today (Sept. 24) and revealed that the Oscar-nominated actor loves the group and tries to catch their concerts whenever he can.

"A guy who has become a good friend and who I never expected, Bradley Cooper, the actor. Huge Metallica fan," Ulrich confessed. "[He] actually flies and comes and sees us play if he's got a day off. Like, 'Where are you playing a gig?' And he'll jump on a plane and bring his lady [Suki Waterhouse] and hang out."

In fact, this summer, Cooper was spotted at Metallica's very exclusive concert during Comic-Con at the Spreckels Theatre in San Diego. The group gave out 500 free tickets to fans who attended the band's film preview and panel discussion in July while the rest went to friends of the group and VIP guests.

"There are lots of crazy metal heads all over the world and it's cool that they just come and be a part of the crazy ride that we're on," Ulrich added.
