Bradley Cooper recently stepped out with model Suki Waterhouse, but the actor says that he's actually already living with a woman: his mother, Gloria (above).

"It's not like I live in a compound and she's in the guesthouse. No. She's in the next room," he tells Details magazine in its latest issue. "But here's the thing. She's a cool chick. We can hang and she can roll with the punches."

Together, they can get through tough times. Cooper, 38, explains that after his father's death two years ago, he and his mom moved in together for support.

"My family is very close and my dad dying was brutal for all of us," he says. "It was a schism and its aftershock has not stopped. And we need each other. So here we are."

Still, the Oscar-nominated actor admitted that the situation hasn't come without complications for both parties. But they're making it work.

"It's probably not easy for her, by the way, to be living with her son," he says. "It's life. And right now… this is where we are."
