Only a couple of weeks after basically reenacting “From Here to Eternity” with his girlfriend Irina Shayk on the beaches of the Amalfi Coast, Jenkintown native Bradley Cooper is trading in Italy for a much less glamorous and more familiar beach. The four-time Academy Award nominee is currently hanging out at the Jersey Shore.
Right before many Philadelphians head down to the shore for one final weekend as Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, Cooper took pictures with fans at Richman’s Ice Cream in Brigantine. In the past, the 40-year-old actor has said that Brigantine was where his family vacationed when he was younger:

Later, Cooper took some more photos with fans after grubbing on a cheesesteak at Bob’s Grill in Ocean City. According to this article from the Press of Atlantic City, the “Silver Linings Playbook” star was met with rave reviews everywhere he visited:
From doing voiceover work on a bunch of cool videos produced by the Eagles to spending a good chunk of time in Philly during his “60 Minutes” interview and heading back to New Jersey from time to time, Cooper seems to keep strong ties to Philly no matter how big of a star he becomes.
