Bradley was not nominated for Best Actor at the Academy Awards this year, but he was nominated in the Best Picture category as he is also a producer on Guillermo del Toro’s film Nightmare Alley.
While attending the show, Cooper was spotted Smith consoled after storming the stage and slapping Rock over a joke he made about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, 50, who was bald.
The moment between the two actors was captured during a commercial break and shared on Twitter by columnist Scott Feinberg of The Hollywood Reporter.

Smith was first comforted by Denzel Washington, 67, and Tyler Perry, 52. Later, during his Best Actor address, he said Washington told him, “Be careful at your highest moment — that’s when the devil comes for you.”
Cooper was then seen putting both hands on Smith’s shoulders as he gave him a pep talk, before pulling the King Richard star into a hug.
Prior to the commercial break, Rock took the stage to present the Academy Award for Best Documentary.

Before announcing the nominees, the comedian joked, “Jada, I love you, GI Jane 2, can’t wait to see it.”
Smith was initially seen laughing at the joke, but Pinkett Smith, 50 – who suffers from alopecia – rolled her eyes at the joke.
The camera then caught the I Am Legend star taking the stage and banging on Rock. When he returned to his seat, he started yelling twice, “Keep my wife’s name out of your damn mouth.”
Less than an hour later, Smith won the Best Actor award for his portrayal of Richard Williams, father of tennis legends Serena and Venus.
Smith publicly apologized to Rock Monday night, saying his behavior was “unacceptable and unforgivable.”
The Academy plans to meet Wednesday night where Smith’s fate can be decided.
