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!"

After nearly 30 years hosting Entertainment Tonight, the day has come for Mary Hart to put down her mic.
Hart, 60, whose hosting duties will be fulfilled by Nancy O'Dell, 45, was surprised with a party on stage after her final taping on Thursday. Unexpected guests, including Hart's former co-hosts John Tesh (co-hosted from 1982-1996), Bob Goen (co-hosted from 1993-2004) and Robb Weller (co-hosted from 1984-1986), were brought out for the big farewell.
Additionally, Natalie Cole surprised Hart and serenaded the departing host with her hit, "Unforgettable."
Admitting in November that leaving ET was "not an easy decision," Hart said, "Knowing I will pass the baton to Nancy O'Dell makes that decision much easier."
Fans can reach out to Hart and send their own messages via Twitter by Tweeting @ETonlinealert using the hash tag #WeHartMary.
