Back in 2009, Bradley Cooper went on several high-profile “dates” with several high profile women. It always struck me that he was doing the budget version of what Tom Cruise (allegedly) did: auditioning his next partner. Except Tom ended up marrying his robot bride, while Bradley ended up “dating” Renee Zellweger for nearly two years before breaking up just a few weeks ago. Some think Bradley and Renee were a real couple – some don’t. I’m not judging either way. Anyway, one of the high-profile ladies that Bradley “dated” back in 2009 has an opinion about his breakup. That’s right, Jennifer Aniston has some thoughts. And she has ZERO sympathy for Renee, according to a talkative and oblivious National Enquirer source. You see, in Aniston’s mind, Renee “stole” Bradley away from her, and this breakup and Renee’s misery is all “karma”. Seriously, this is one of the funniest stories I’ve read all week – it’s a thing of beauty:
Turnabout is fair play – and Jennifer Aniston is rejoicing in Renee Zellweger’s misery after her split from Bradley Cooper, the Enquirer has learned. Aniston was heartbroken when Bradley ended their romance nearly two years ago and started dating Renee almost immediately. Now sources say Jennifer is gloating over their breakup.
“Jennifer has zero sympathy for Renee. I think as far as she’s concerned, this is a case of karma catching up with her,” an insider divulged. “The way I see it, Renee swooped in and basically stole Bradley away from her. She was devastated, and I think she’s been seething about it ever since. Jen’s not usually a bitter person [Editor’s note: LMAO!], but I’m sure she’s enjoying the fact that things didn’t work out between Bradley and Renee. She’s even reached out to him since their split.”
Bradley is reportedly anxious to jump back into the dating game, and has already been linked to Sandra Bullock and Jessica Biel. Still, insiders aren’t ruling out reconciliation with Jennifer, who’s dated a number of actors since her brief romance with Bradley in 2009.
“Jen and Bradley had great chemistry together,” pointed out another source. “There are no hard feelings as far as Jen’s concerned, but I don’t think she could ever understand his attraction to Renee in the first place. They always looked awkward together, and Bradley was obviously not ready to commit fully to Renee.”
The source added: “I think Renee was very smug about her relationship with Bradley from the get-go, and Jen probably feels Renee finally got what she deserved. Now maybe she can rekindle her romance with Bradley!”

First – how bitchy is “I don’t think she could ever understand his attraction to Renee in the first place. They always looked awkward together”? Even though I know everybody is going to yell and say that this is obviously made up (and it probably is), I think that statement is probably true regarding Aniston’s thought process.
Secondly – I remember the Cooper-Aniston “hookup” as it was. A series of dinners, followed by several swift denials directly from Bradley about how Aniston was JUST a friend, followed quickly by the relationship with Renee. I even remember the Us Weekly cover story in which several “sources” laid out the real reasons Bradley and Jennifer didn’t happen: he thought she was “not natural and insecure” and that she was putting on an “act”. The sources claimed that Bradley went with Renee because she was more low-key, more down-to-earth, less of neurotic, bitter, superficial drama queen.
My thought: whether or not the specifics of this story are true, I do know that Bradley made it clear in 2009 that he wasn’t interested. And if Aniston thinks it’s going to happen now, two years later, well… that’s sad. Oh, as I was finishing this up, the new issue of In Touch Weekly came in, and they have another story about Aniston pouncing on Bradley too. According to their sources, “She’s been texting him again…Jen would give Bradley another chance in a heartbeat… she likes him!”
