I try to set goals as to how I want to advance in my career and create a good life for myself.

I have a lot left to accomplish and it’s exciting to be in this position. I worked a long time to get to this point. You don’t even dare to dream this big.’

Bradley received his first Oscar nomination this year for his role as bipolar Pat in Silver Linings Playbook and even though he didn’t win he was honoured to be acknowledged.

It’s a surreal experience,’ the actor tells the Daily Mirror.

Especially to have your name spoken of in the same sentence as Daniel Day-Lewis, who is my idol.’
