Celebrated actor Bradley Cooper said that he has been gifted a belt by former boxer Mike Tyson. It came as a surprise to him when he found out a boxing belt gifted to him, by Mike Tyson's family.
Bradley Cooper, who is 41 now, enjoys a very good bonding with the 50 years old former boxer, Mike Tyson. Cooper, earlier thought it to be a regular fighting championship belt, but he was stunned to find out the belt had been specially customized for him.
"Oddly enough we got on crazily, we got on great. We became friends. Though I don't know what he would say. We've lost touch over the last few years, but there was that James Toback documentary, I went to the premiere of that with him and his family," Cooper said.
"I was doing the play The Elephant Man and his family came to see it and they gave me one of his boxing belts. I didn't know what to do because it had the medallions and everything but then I noticed it wasn't a real belt. At first, I did think it was genuine and my heart stopped, and I was like 'I can't accept this' and then I looked and said 'Oh'." The actor said.
