“I used to be hooked on cocaine,” Cooper shared throughout his June 2022 look on the Smartless podcast, explaining that he had severed his Achilles tendon and “bought fired-slash-quit” from Alias within the midst of his private struggles. “I used to be completely depressed.”
The 48-year-old recalled the turning level in his life coming in July 2004 after attending a celebration with Arnett. Cooper stated he remembered pondering he was “so humorous” to the opposite visitors, just for the Blades of Glory star to inform him that he was a “actual asshole” in the course of the night.
“That was the primary time I ever realized I had an issue with medicine and alcohol,” he continued, noting that Arnett spoke to him about his actions. “I am going to simply always remember it. The man that I feel is doing ‘imply humor’ is telling me the reality about it.”
“Each single factor is totally shaded or introduced out in wonderful colours by the truth that I get to be a father to a beautiful human being,” he shared. “It is simply absolutely the best factor.”
