Bradley Cooper leaves the press conference for his recently released film Maestro in New York on Thursday, December 21, afternoon to speak to a school nurse about his six-year-old daughter Lea.

When Bradley Cooper leaves press conference due to daughter's emergency
According to Daily Mail, the 48-year-old actor excused himself from the promotions to attend the emergency call from his daughter's school. He said, "So sorry. The school nurse just called me. Can I just leave the room for a second to call them back and you can keep going. Is that all right?" The actor was supposed to join the team after attending the call. However, when Cooper returned, he said, "I have to go to the school to do something with Lea that needs. I have to apply something that they won't allow. I have to do it, so it's like a 10-minute walk."
The press conference incident came after Cooper was pictured with his daughter in New York on December 15.
Days before, Lea made her red carpet debut alongside her famous dad at a Maestro screening, attended by his co-stars in the movie, including Maya Hawke, Matt Bomer, Sarah Silverman and Carey Mulligan. Lea appears in the film as a younger version of Maya Hawke's character, Jamie Bernstein.
