Bradley Cooper is all about protection.

The “A Star Is Born” director was spotted vacationing in Italy with a healthy dose of sunscreen slathered all over his nose.

Along with the globs of white SPF, Cooper wore sunglasses and a baseball cap. Although his vigilance with staying safe from harmful UV rays should be commended, many fans found the look reminiscent of a “beach dad,” according to Harper’s Bazaar.

“So... are we going to talk about #BradleyCooper’s sunscreen application or?,” Paper Magazine captioned two shots of the 44-year-old in all his SPF glory.

This elicited a slew of reactions both criticizing Cooper’s anti- tanning technique and also praising him for putting self-care over fashion.

“Get this out of my sight,” one person wrote.

Another added, “Just like Dad.”

A third commented, “This is hella funny.”

On the supportive side, one fan said: “Hey that nose deserve protection!”

Despite trying to avoid a nasty burn, Cooper was enjoying his time in the sun alongside celebrity pals like Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Oprah Winfrey, and Gayle King.

The A-list group was in Sicily to take part in Google Camp, an exclusive three-day event which gathers titans of tech, business, entertainment, and politics to discuss climate change.

This year’s attendees also included Barack Obama, Leonardo DiCaprio, Harry Styles, Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
