Bradley Cooper stopping in at Saxbys Coffee Thursday afternoon, just down the street from his alma mater Georgetown University. Navy sweater, sunglasses, ballcap. Orderd a coffee and a snack. Seemed to be alone. The Best Actor Oscar nominee is in town for a mental-health advocacy event Friday — he plays a man struggling with bipolar disease in “Silver Linings Playbook.”

Update: Bradley Cooper talks about mental health at Center for American Progress, 2/1/13

Eric Holder, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Rep. James Clyburn in the audience at Ford’s Theatre Wednesday night for the opening of “Our Town.”
