Jennifer Lopez went on a date with…. Bradley Cooper?

r royals bafta 110711
TMZ is reporting that Jennifer Lopez was spotted out on a date with none other than serial dater Bradley Cooper. The way they phrase this makes it sound like they heard it from a “source” (aka a publicist) trying to get the news out. It’s hard to remember all the women that Bradley Cooper has allegedly dated. Of course he was in a long term relationship with Renee Zellweger, but since splitting with her earlier this year he’s been linked with his sort-of ex, Jennifer Aniston, he seems to have dated Olivia Wilde, and we heard rumors about possible flings with Zoe Saldana and Jessica Biel. I’m probably forgetting someone in there.

Anyway Bradley was seen out in NY having a romantic dinner with Jennifer Lopez. There’s no doubt that it wasn’t a group situation or something like that, and it sounds like a temporary match made in publicist heaven.

Jennifer Lopez might be moving on from hubby Marc Anthony in a big way — because last night she went out on a date with Bradley Cooper … TMZ has learned.

We’re told the two hit up Per Se, a restaurant located at Columbus Circle in New York City. We’re told the dinner was “romantic” and was just the two of them.

[From TMZ]

In no way does Lopez seem like Cooper’s type at all, especially if he was almost ready to settle down with Zellweger. Renee is shy, humble and kind and has talked about how she hates fame. (Although she definitely seems to be warming up to it recently.) J.Lo is basically a flashy “look at me” famewhore and a diva. Still, there are plenty of men who don’t seem to have a type. If Cooper really is the ladies’ man that his people would have us believe, I could see him willingly going on a date or two with Lopez. They seem like such a mismatch to me though. This is Lopez wanting to make her ex jealous, and Cooper’s people wanting to keep his name in the press. They’ve been trying to make him happen since he was first linked to Jennifer Aniston in 2007. Judging from the success of Limitless, it seems to have worked.




Here’s Bradley Cooper at the US Open final yesterday with actor/director Ron Rifkin and Ron’s wife, Iva. He’s shown in the header on 9/6/11 at the GQ Men of the Year awards. What’s up with that hair? Credit: Fame. J.Lo is shown on 7/9/11. Credit:

    I think he just has thick hair that’s full of body and looks like that when he doesn’t lard it into submission.

    J-Ho probably wants to star in a movie with him. Just say no, Brad.

  2. carrie says:

    or Charlize Theron enough wasn’t famous for him or he needs another beard( my gaydar always is crazy for this famewhore)or it’s just a RP story

    This guy loves to be famous,loves to hang out with famous peoples,to be in celebrity magazines (when even the french ELLE wrote it,you can believe it’s true)

  3. Ell says:

    Aww…Ron Rifkin, I miss Brothers and Sisters.

    I can’t imagine Bradley Cooper and J Lo together either. Does this not perpetuate the gay rumours.

  4. Celebitchy says:

    Oh yeah Charlize Theron! I forgot her. I’ll add her in.

    - Edit – Charlize was last linked to Ryan Reynolds, not Bradley Cooper. I can’t see where they were dating?

  5. Bella says:

    don’t do this, jennifer…

  6. sassenach says:

    Sorry, don’t believe this one. Brad allegedly date around but he is rather personal and isn’t seen papped alot. I think he learned his lesson from Anniston about dating high profile women.

  7. Kiki says:

    “Serial dater” – that was really good. LOL!

  8. ShanKat says:

    Columbus Circle is one of the least romantic places I can think of. Sounds like 2 queens out for a little P&R, nothing more.

    He’s so gay, I can’t hear myself think. He sets off the gaydar alarms all over the neighborhood.

    Love his hair, though. *Love* RR. He’s the shit.

  9. Thea says:

    I cant see J LO as a beard but maybe he pays well. This is sort of out of left field.

  10. Calli Pygian says:

    Cary Grant comes to mind b/c of the tux pic…gaydar pingpingping.

  11. Toot says:

    Supposedly BC was flirting with Charlize at the GQ party I think.

  12. ladystefa says:

    Bradley Cooper was once married to actress Jennifer Esposito for short time, and he has been quoted as saying he has a thing for latinas…stay tuned.

  13. mia girl says:

    @s You must not read this site much because it is an equal-opportunity gossip site. Why so very angry? It’s not our fault that this women moves fast.

    Oh and just because someone else says it’s a business meeting doesn’t make it so. In fact, that might be heresay… Ha!

    Back off, back down and just get off this site if it bothers you so much.

  14. miss_bhaven says:

    Sorry I dont see the attraction in either one of them. You can add Gerard Butler and Robert Pattinson to that list too.

  15. SS says:

    it’s her life!!!
    We dun know if it’s really a date!!
    Even if it is…so????what is she supposed to do sit there crying???it’s okay for normal ppl to put themselves out there after a break-up but it’s not okay for her????
    A fame whore???for real???she’s known everywhere, she has fame already and you start calling a woman a whore because she’s trying to find love??this is not the 18th century when you can only marry once!!!!Everybody deserves a chance for happiness!!

  16. Gabby says:


    Jennifer Episoto is ITALIAN, not Hispanic.

  17. kc says:

    Yes, but they always called her the poor man’s jennifer lopez
    I think Jennifer Garner called Bradley and told him go on a date with Jlo and get her out of her husband’s pants Lmao!!JenGar is not taking Jlo’s sh!t lying down .She’s going to fight for Ben

  18. Roma says:

    I’m really confused: what is a pressed loser and why am I one?

    Am depressed? Repressed? Oppressed? I’d like to know so I can talk to my doctor about what is obviously a very serious situation.

  19. Denise says:

    I kinda like Coop; I hope for his sake that this dinner was just business, because you know what happens when J-Lo decides it is time for romance…….the poor bastard won’t know what hit him.

  20. Nymeria says:

    @ Roma – Your comment made me giggle; I have the same concerns. ;)

  21. SLP says:


    Thank you!!!! That just made my day!!!

  22. Kelly says:

    @Roma, LOL.

    I just cannot understand people who come to this site and lambaste the HATERZ. Celebrities put themselves out there and court attention, often in absurd ways. If they seek positive commentary, they have to be prepared for negative commentary as well. They are fair game, as far as I’m concerned.

  23. Susan O. says:

    She’ll pick up some juicy hunk for her next husband. Another Madonna-like boy toy with all her bucks WATCH

  24. AngelMay says:

    Don’t see Jen as the beard type, this is a woman who needs to get d*cked.
    And he sends the gaydar needle spinning.

  25. The Original Ashley says:

    Uh Jennifer Espositio, yeah I can see this. Renee never seemed his type.

  26. 4Real says:

    This broad has no shame…RUN BRADLEY RUN!!!!

  27. bluhare says:

    She’ll eat him up, spit him out, and put her cigarette out in what’s left.

  28. Poison Ivy says:

    You know you’ve made it, if there are gay rumours, right? Maybe he goes both ways…

  29. Maritza says:

    That must have been a business date, no romance there at all. These two make no sense, he is a Capricorn and she is a Leo, she made a better match with Marc who is Virgo.

  30. hmmmm says:

    I don’t find either one of them appealing. Blah

    Ihis looks like a PR stunt. I hate it when celebrities get romance rumors going by attaching themselves to another celebrity strictly for publicity. So transparent, desperate, and I just lose respect for them. Anyway, I think Cooper is gay so this all looks so weird.

  31. Kim says:

    The title should be Bradley goes to dinner with possible new beard.

  32. mary simon says:

    Bradley’s hair looked better in The Hangover. Not liking his short super hero hair. I don’t think he is gay, although he might be dating for publicity.

  33. Turtle Dove says:

    I didn’t get the Bradley love at. all. until I saw Limitless. Great movie. Imagine a movie with an interesting concept and it cost about 28 million to make.

    I’m an official convert.

    As for these two. N.o. I do not see this and Coop should Run, Baby, Run cause Jenny’s blockness all but killed Ben’s career for years.

  34. Madisyn says:

    I concur with AngelMay. Lopez does NOT need to beard for anyone. As much as I dislike her, she is famous. She certainly looks like she wants sex and if he’s gay, she’s not going to get it. I don’t see this AT ALL!

  35. Amanda G says:

    NOOOOO! Renee was bad enough, but now J.Lo? Ugh.

  36. Claire78 says:

    I want him back with Renee – I think she is sweet

  37. Dana M says:

    They do not seem like a Match, at all!
    They don’t have anything in common aside from acting/Hollywood. So obvious that this a PR set up! Now, I’m beginning to question the gay rumor.

  38. Lily says:

    @Maritza that’s so weird because I was wondering what his sign is! Thanks!

    Here’s a profile of them as a “match”

    I think she should date an Aquarius or Gemini. This is too funny.

  39. Kosmos says:

    No, do not see these two together, no way. There may be an initial attraction, but that’s it. He would hate her soon enough for being so overwhelmingly diva. Sorry, I’m just not a JLo fan at all. I feel sorry for any guy who gets mixed up with her. Ben Affleck was lucky to have found his beautiful and non-diva wife. She’s gorgeous and grounded whereas JLo is insecure and highly overrated!!

  40. Blithe says:

    I’d bet all my money on it…I SWEAR he’s gay. He’s practically screaming it without opening his mouth. And Renee Z., “kind”???? Uh…not from what I’ve heard. But she can be a good actress when she feels like it.

  41. anonymous says:

    Doubt it! This is such a bad match, if you don’t want to wear something that makes you look washed out, then I don’t think a woman of a certain age, needs a man that makes her look her age! Bradley next to Jlo makes her look old, but who knows.
