Did Scarlett Johansson dump Nate Naylor for an on-again fling with Bradley Cooper?

On Friday, Bedhead discussed a tabloid story claiming that Scarlett Johansson’s “most beautiful man in the world” boyfriend Nate Naylor is something of a wimp. ScarJo and Nate were apparently in some club, and some club douche was trying to grind on ScarJo, and Nate did nothing about it. I’m not saying he should have started a club brawl or anything, but “keeping your seat and not saying anything” isn’t a great option either.

Which brings me to an important question: is it possible that ScarJo is tiring of her most beautiful man in the world? Perhaps. I’ve always pegged Scarlett as the kind of girl who easily loses interest in a man, and she and Nate have been seeing each other for some-odd seven or eight months. Perhaps the end is nigh. But would Scarlett dump Nate without a jumpoff in the wings? And is that jumpoff… Bradley Cooper?

They were rumored to be dating back in 2011 after playing love interests in He’s Just Not that Into You, and from the looks of things, Scarlett Johansson and Bradley Cooper may be giving it another go, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

The Avengers beauty,27,and Hangover stud, 37, had a fun, flirty dinner at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant at the Bel Air Hotel on the night of Monday, June 11. There was candlelight, wine, (well, Scarlett had wine) and what appeared to be witty banter, based on the steady stream of giggles coming from their table.

“They seemed very comfortable together and it was pretty obvious they are into each other,” an eyewitness tells RadarOnline.com “Bradley seemed almost distracted by Scarlett’s beauty, especially since she was wearing a very low cut dress, and Scarlett was totally working her charms. She kept flipping her hair when she laughed at his jokes.

“The chemistry between them VERY evident and they looked totally wrapped up in each other — very cute! They were definitely having more than a “friends” dinner, it seemed pretty obvious they totally have the hots for each other.”

Ever the gent, Bradley stood up when Scarlett excused herself for the ladies room, and upon her return.

The handsome actor, who once dated Renee Zellweger and most recently has been in an on-again, off-again relationship with Zoe Saldana, picked up the tab and the impossibly attractive blonde duo relocated to the piano bar for drinks and a change of scenery.

Did anyone just feel a little bit sorry for B-Coop there? I did. Poor Bradley didn’t know where to look! Anyway, I remember hearing some stuff about Scarlett and Bradley when they worked on He’s Just Not That Into You, and I vaguely remember something last year too. I suspect that they’re friends. And I’ve always suspected that Bradley’s type isn’t really a Scarlett-esque bombshell, nor a Saldana-esque, ballerina-type. But if we’re playing along, I think there’s a better chance that Bradley will end up going back to Zoe Saldana.

    i can’t believe I once though Brad Coops was Hot *shivers*. He would still be an upgrade from douche king Nate Naylor though…..soo….um…yeah.

  2. sup says:

    isn’t Bradley gay? I remember seeing some threads on imdb back duing the Kitchen Confidential days… how i loved that show… yummy looking food and men… hehehe

  3. Cherry says:

    Sigh. Not Bradley Cooper again, with his over-productive publicist who’s trying to have use believe he dated practically every girl in town. Just get out of the closet already.

  4. Nessa says:

    I don’t know why I pay attention to the gay rumors since pretty much every actor in HW is surrounded by them. I don’t think much of them, but for some reason, with B. Coop… It seems very plausible… Just sayin’.

  5. Peach Dancer says:

    ScarJo is probably one of those most annoying bimbos in Hollywood. Hardly ever give good performances, always talk an awful lot of vapid stuff in interviews. Can’t stand her.

  6. Faun says:

    I find it amusing that she’s wearing the same Minnetonka moccasins that I wear.

  7. BB says:

    I thought she would dump her bf for JGL… not for Bradley…

  8. Dee Cee says:

    You don’t understand.. how less shallow about her looks and wealth she is.. so she is looking for the intellectual better mate to guide and teach her the absolute free spirit in socialism and the arts.. not just a handsome hunk. HAHA

  9. Lucy says:

    Used to hate him, then liked him for a few then if this is on I don’t like him anymore. SJ is the most annoying, (but has NO idea she is) actress on the planet.

    (and WHY is this comment awaiting moderation?? it’s not offensive)

  10. Tiffany27 says:

    I’ll only believe this if Bradley Cooper is a douchebag. She does not like the nice guys.

  11. normades says:

    “She kept flipping her hair when she laughed at his jokes.”

    I can totally picture this and the mental image is really annoying.

    “Bradley seemed almost distracted by Scarlett’s beauty..”

    Seriously, who writes this stuff????

  12. lafairy says:

    I think her overall appearance has improved here from what we saw from her lately, although I find her very matron-esque for her age, she looks more mom-ish than the bombshell she used to be, but still an immprovment from lately…

    PS: and I don’t believe this pairing at all!!! they are more friends than anything else… she is not his type…too hairless and smooth…;)

  13. Julie says:

    fan fiction. or some over motivated publicist.

    reading that i now believe Bradley and ScarJo can cure cancer just by looking so beautiful.

  14. carrie says:

    they’re friends.
    They were together with other friends at Paris (Paris) last summer and they want to act in Melanie Laurent’s next directing-movie.
    Scarlet Johanson even came at Paris this spring to work on the script with Mélanie and in the same time she looked for a french home for Cooper (Cooper also came this winter at Paris to find this home)

  15. Aubra says:

    Publicists are staying PAID huh?? Sorry I don’t belive the gay rumors about him. I still think he’s gonna wind up with a woman who it TOTALLY outside of the whole Hollywood bubble…

  16. Gwen says:

    I want her to hook up with Jeremy Renner instead. He makes her less annoying for some reason.

  17. serena says:

    Am I the only one who thinks Bradley Cooper is gay?

  18. Spilling says:

    @Taj: If you didnt know about Vince and Bradley then you probably dont know about Gerard Depardieu and John Travolta. Thankfully, it was back in the early 1980s while they were still hot – with plenty of pictorial evidence and some very revealing quotes from both about each other. Google away.

  19. Ravensdaughter says:

    Regardless of the next guy, Nate Taylor was definitely a douchebag. Oh, to have ScarJo’s choices of bad men!

  20. Gene Parmesan says:

    I hope he’s lost that scary ‘stash at least

  21. cherie says:

    she’s probably FWBs with him, timberlake, hartnett, JGL, etc.

    hell, probably ryan reynolds too.

    i can’t really hate, girl’s got game.

  22. Dahlia1947 says:

    That Nate dude was ugly so good for her if she got rid of him especially an ugly dude who doesn’t step in for his girl.

    I hope this is true. Bradley is hot, hot, hot! He’s just naughty looking! Like he’s going to take you then and there! His eyes are so BEAUTIFUL and that smile is gorgeous!

    Their scene in the movie was sooo hot, and I just love tthat they may be reenacting that EXACT scene! RRRrrroww!

    You enjoy yourself girl!

  23. Madhubala says:

    Not buying this. Bradley’s cute but Scarlett probably perfers her men to be less vanilla than he is. I see her with someone like Jeremy Renner, they clearly have the itch for each other anyway.
