Bradley Cooper has no problem winning over humans (hello, Sexiest Man Alive!) – it's his dog that's the problem.

When The Words star first met Charlotte, his chow/retriever mix, "She was on the streets of Compton, actually," he told Kelly Ripa and Sam Champion during a Thursday appearance on Live! With Kelly.

"She has no bottom teeth," he continued, as he described the "little polar bear" and "little toughie" he found through Much Love Animal Rescue.

It may have been love at first sight between the pair, but Charlotte was apparently unimpressed with Cooper's acting credits when he adopted her that day.

"When she saw you, did she recognize you?" Ripa asked. "And was she like, 'I am hitting the jackpot!' Can you imagine?"

In fact, Charlotte had no previous knowledge of her new owner's past work. "I was like 'Hey, I was on Alias,'" he said. "She's like, 'Nope.' I'm like, 'Wedding Crashers?'"

It didn't keep Cooper from forming a lasting bond with the well-behaved pooch, and he told the audience, "She's the best."
