Bradley Cooper didn't necessarily have the wildest of birthday celebrations, but his special day certainly didn't go unnoticed.
The Silver Linings Playbook star, who flew in on Bombardier's Hollywood Reporter Palm Springs shuttle from Santa Monica, Calif., and turned 38 on Saturday, was greeted by a slew of screaming fans when he arrived on the red carpet at the 24th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala in Palm Springs, Calif.
"Bradley started interacting with his fans and then they broke out into song, chanting 'Happy birthday to you,'" an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Running late into the event because of the fan holdup, Cooper whisked by many of the reporters, and when asked about his birthday plans, answered with a smile, "I'm here!"

Lea Michele spent a restful weekend at the Colony Palms Hotel in Palm Springs, Calif., and immediately went for a bite at the Purple Palm restaurant after arriving. The Glee star ordered a snack, which she ate poolside, along with a cheese plate.
After her meal, Michele hit up the Jacuzzi, where she relaxed before dinner.
The next day, it was back to the pool, where Michele sprawled out on a day bed and drank a Bloody Mary before indulging in a custom Swedish massage before heading home.

After celebrating their baby shower last weekend, Jessica Simpson and fiancé Eric Johnson had another busy weekend at the Palm Springs wedding of Simpson's friend and former assistant, Lauren Zelman, to Breaking In actor Bret Harrison.
The wedding festivities started on Friday with a rehearsal dinner at Las Casuelas Nuevas restaurant in Rancho Mirage. Wearing a floor-length emerald-green dress with jeweled platform sandals, "Jessica looked stunning," a source tells PEOPLE. "She was moving very slowly and Eric held on to her tightly so she wouldn't trip in her shoes." The singer gave a toast to the couple, and "everyone seemed to have fun," the source continues.
On Saturday, Simpson and her sister Ashlee were bridesmaids in the sunset wedding ceremony, which took place in the garden at the Parker Hotel.
According to an eyewitness, "Jessica was escorted down the aisle by a wedding coordinator so she wouldn't fall. It was difficult for her to get around, but she was a great sport and kept smiling. Everyone at the wedding was doting on Jessica and seemed very understanding. And Lauren seemed very happy that Jessica was able to be a part of her wedding. "
Also in the bridal party was Ashlee's 3-year-old son Bronx Wentz. "Bronx was the ring bearer," the eyewitness adds. "He broke down in tears several times, but Ashlee was great and kept making him smile again."
Other wedding guests included actors Adam Brody and Josh Schwartz, who were groomsmen, plus Simpson's best friend CaCee Cobb and her fiancé, Donald Faison. – Pernilla Cedenheim
