As if it's not nerve-wracking enough to attend a high school reunion worrying about your former classmates being more successful than you, could you imagine turning up and seeing one of the greatest living actors across the room?

Yes, Hollywood heartthrob Bradley Cooper proved that he's not too cool for school as he made a triumphant return to his 30-year high school reunion.

During his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Cooper spilled the tea about attending not one, not two, but three high school reunions! That's right, he's clearly committed to celebrating those nostalgic moments and reuniting with some old faces.

The A Star Is Born actor shared his delightful experience at his 30-year high school reunion, which took place last month in Philadelphia at the Chestnut Hill Brewing Company. He even showed up early to the event, proving that punctuality is key, even for a Hollywood superstar.

Cooper even revealed that he offered a hand in setting up for the event, saying: "I put the sign out front, it said 'Germantown Academy,' and then people came, and I welcomed them."

Literally, can you imagine walking in and being greeted by Academy Award nominee Bradley Cooper? I'd probably just turn around and drive back to my mediocre home.

But here's the charming twist: Cooper humbly confessed to feeling like an "imposter" when it came to his name tag. You see, back in high school, he went by "Brad," but nowadays, he prefers "Bradley." So, naturally, he had a minor internal debate over which name to write on the tag. In the end, he went with "Bradley" because, as he rightly pointed out: "That is my real name, Bradley."

Now, one might assume that with Bradley Cooper's Hollywood status, his appearance would have caused quite a commotion. However, the actor assured Fallon that there was no "freaking out" involved. Instead, he described the vibe as "awesome" and "just regular."

It seems that time has a way of mellowing things out, and Cooper's classmates were more interested in catching up than being starstruck. So, kudos to Cooper for showing us that even after decades of fame and success, he's still the down-to-earth guy we've come to adore.

After images of the star at the event were shared to Facebook, it wasn't long before fans were praising the actor.

"Amazing! How exciting for you guys," one social media user commented,

Another quipped: "A name tag. He’s wearing a name tag. Adorable."

And a third wrote: "Makes you wonder how many other celebrities go to their high school reunions."

The Chestnut Brewing Company added: "Thank you Germantown Academy for hosting your class of 1993 reunion with us! We had the honor of hosting a special guest! You never know who you'll run into at the Taproom!"

Who knows, maybe Cooper will continue this tradition and make an appearance at his 35-year high school reunion? Let's just hope the evening didn't play out like star's Hangover movies.
