You would think that Bradley Cooper —who (astonishingly) just turned 41 — would have a boat-load of choice birthday memories involving Champagne, renting out yachts, and partying with A-list friends like Jennifer Lawrence. But surprisingly, the Burnt star and Academy Award winning actor’s tastes are a little less refined.
In an interview with Scene, Cooper recalls that his favorite birthday memory is his 8th birthday party, which took place at a McDonald’s.
“McDonald’s birthdays were a big thing when I was growing up,” he explains in the interview. “We would get Egg McMuffins… I loved the little trays with the party… every kid would have little party boxes that you would eat all your stuff in.”
After all, when you can have all the extravagant birthday celebrations that money can buy, there’s nothing quite like the simplicity of an Egg McMuffin.
