Cooper has said:
…I’m Samoan or half-Samoan, but I don’t know a whole lot of the Samoan culture. I was raised by my mom, I was raised Jewish. I’m one of the very few Samoan Jews in the world, which is funny. She’s in the Peace Corps, and that’s where she met my dad, but I never knew my dad. I was raised by my mom, who is a New York Jew.
