Bradley Cooper’s mom can’t stand his young girlfriend, Suki Waterhouse

Bradley Cooper

These American Hustle set photos truly are the bad-hair gift that keeps on giving. Aside from the unfortunate perm, poor Bradley Cooper just can’t catch a break. Over the past few years, the tabloids have set him up with countless eligible bachelorettes, so he (presumably) thought he’d go and beat them at their own game by grabbing his own choice of girlfriends. BCoop was with Zoe Saldana off and on for several months, and then their contract relationship ended, which may or may not have had something to do with the fact that Bradley’s mom has lived with him for a few years and has been reportedly “blocking” him from getting some action.

For the record, Bradley has stated that he and his mother need each other, and it’s pretty sweet that they’re taking care of each other after his father’s death. Bradley also made it clear that there is sometimes some friction between him and mom because their bedrooms are right next to each other. Enter Bradley’s new girlfriend, British model Suki Waterhouse, who just happens to be 20 years old, and her appearance in Bradley’s life coincides with his newfound brolationship with Leo DiCaprio. This week’s issue of the Enquirer says that Bradley’s mom does not like Suki at all and is determined to break them up at all costs:

Bradley Cooper’s overprotective mom wants him to kick his latest girlfriend to the curb because she thinks the starlet is just using him to jump-start a Hollywood career, say sources.

The 38-year-old Hangover hunk and British model Suki Waterhouse, 20, have gotten serious since hooking up in London early this year, but Gloria Cooper is warning her son he’s headed for heartbreak.

“Bradley is wild about Suki,” confided an insider. “He’s blinded by love and is already talking marriage and kids. But his mom is determined to short-circuit the budding romance. She hit the roof after she overheard Suki bragging to friends that Bradley was going to help launch her acting career. She thinks Suki is pumping Bradley to introduce her to his high-powered showbiz friends — and then she’ll drop him.”

As the Enquirer revealed, Bradley — who was first spotted romancing Suki in February — initially got cozy with her to make his Silver Linings Playbook co-star Jennifer Lawrence jealous. But Hollywood’s hottest bachelor wound up falling for the young beauty, who has just one low-budget screen role to her credit. Meanwhile, he’s already whisked her off to Paris and the Boston set of his latest movie.

But pals are certain Gloria — who lives with mama’s boy Bradley and has an incredibly close bond with him — will eventually have her way. “Bradley’s mom is his rock, and he listens to all of her advice,” said the source. “When push comes to shove, he will definitely choose his mom over Suki.”

From the perspective of Gloria Cooper, I can see why Suki looks like bad news. If Suki is really gunning for a Hollywood career, then there’s a good chance that she’s using Bradley. Then again, BCoop might just be using her too if he’s following the Leo playbook. I do hope that Gloria doesn’t get too worked up about this romance though because I just don’t see it lasting too long at all. By the time that BCoop finishes filming American Hustle and shaves off his perm, the novelty of Suki should start wearing thin, and I give this relationship about six months, tops. Certainly, Suki won’t stick around after Bradley goes back to Cali and starts sleeping next to his mother again.

    let’s talk about the plugs. That disgusting hat he has been wearing means he is undergoing treatment.

  2. nina says:

    Yay! Gloria Cooper is back! I was wondering when the “His mom hates his gf” stories would kick in. On another site, they’re theorizing this means it’s the beginning of the end as these same type of stories came out right before he & Zoe broke up. We’ll see.

  3. Joanna says:

    That is so disgusting. a 38 yr old and a 20 yr old. no matter which way the ages go. wtf do you have in common with a 20 yr old when you’re 38? duh, sex. but if you’re gonna do it, keep it strictly sex. i’m 37, i couldn’t do a 20yr old, even just for sex. what do i want to be with a kid for? i’m a grown woman, i just don’t get it.

  4. Kate says:

    I think Bradley just likes being single and banging really young women (a la DiCaprio), so I don’t buy that he’s talking marriage and kids with her after a couple of months. I also think that his mom seems like the kind of lady who thinks that NO ONE is good enough for her son. She just gives me that vibe, like he’s her precious boy, can do no wrong, and all these women are beneath him.

  5. carol says:

    I know everyone loves him and thinks he’s so handsome but I’ve always gotten a creeper vibe from him

  6. MsAubra says:

    He can’t be done with that kid soon enough!

  7. Jules says:

    I liked him in Silver Linings Playbook though, that had more to do with Jennifer Lawrence… they have amazing chemistry and it helped make Cooper likable. I’m really looking forward to American Hustle. In short, I like him better onscreen since SLP, but, offscreen he’s not attractive. It must be the 20 year old girlfriend thing! (LOL!).

  8. lisa says:

    will she be happier when he starts bringing boyfriends home? there’s no reason someone that rich has to keep their mom in the next room.

  9. MsAubra says:

    That’s not his mama in that photo above! LOL

  10. stellalovejoydiver says:

    She sounds like the british Miranda Kerr in the making, untalented famewhore, not so successful model and dumped her longterm musician boyfriend to hook up with a successful actor.
    I hope Bradley comes to his senses and starts dating Rachel McAdams when they are working on that Cameron Crowe movie together.

    • Becky1 says:

      Yeah, I think he and Rachel McAdams would be a cute couple.

      I think it’s really sad that he’s dating a 20 year old, particularly in light of the comments he made about being old enough to be Jennifer Lawrence’s Dad. It’s really strange that he would make comments like that and then only a month or two later hook up with a 20 year old. It makes me think that he doesn’t know himself very well and that it’s time for some much needed introspection. I don’t believe the tabloid story that he’s thinking of marrying this girl, though.

  11. Jen34 says:

    I find all of the BCoop/mother/girlfriend stories hard to believe. Everything about him screams ambiguity to me. I don’t think the guy knows who he is or what he wants other than an Oscar.

  12. delia says:

    I can understand him wanting to take care of his mother for awhile after the death of his father. I can understand him dating a 20 y.o. model because she’s hot. What I cannot understand is him getting a house/apt. where his bedroom is NEXT DOOR to his mother’s. There are many floor plans, esp. if you’re rich, where the bedrooms, with their own bathrooms, are at opposite ends of the house for reasons of privacy. I can’t imagine having sex with a man whose mother is in the next room. It reminds me of Howard Wolowitz in The Big Bang Theory.

  13. Connie says:

    Story = bullshit.. Ah right he’s talking marriage and babies… And the mother overheard his new piece talking about using Bradley… So tripe for the simple minded.

  14. Annelise says:

    I still can’t believe that her name is actually Suki Waterhouse!

  15. Kim says:

    Suki is 20 and Bradley is 38. Why else would she be with someone twice her age? He gets a beard & she gets to meet contacts.

  16. Patrice says:

    That’s very much NOT Gloria Cooper in the above image with Bradley. G-Coop is short, blonde, heavy set and has super crazy face lift eyes. I’m not sure how that picture with the tall thin woman keeps getting floated around in stories about Bradley and his mom, but if you want to see her, just Google “Bradley Cooper mom Oscars.” He’s brought her as his “date” (shiver) more than once.

  17. eliza says:

    Think of the last 20-year old you spoke to (anyone over 30 that is). It’s painful. They are basically still teenagers. I don’t get it.

  18. blunt talker says:

    Bradley will okay whether this relation-ship lasts or not. It is not the youth of woman he is dating, but her mental maturity and that connection he finds in her at this time in his life. I just read that a 26 yr. old woman on Glee is expecting a baby with her 42 yr. old boyfriend. Men in our country have always dated/married younger women. This is not new in our society. Men run things in this country and they will continue to run after young women as long as they exist.
    If his interest in this young woman is what he wants right now, then people should give him space and time to enjoy his personal life the way he wants to. He has not committed a crime by dating Suki. I still like him and admire the direction his career path is taking him. He seems to be looking forwards not backwards which is a good thing.

  19. coolio says:

    He needs to get with rachel mcadams. Seriously. Shes not that attractive at all and normally I nevrr comment on womens looks, but really? And am I the only one who watched slp and didnt really catch the hype?

  20. Jezebel79 says:

    When there is an age gap this wide, it just smacks of ‘hooker – daddy’ relationship. Bradley is most likely being used by a post-teen, and the post-teen is most likely being used by Bradley for Leo/Clooney style sex with no strings. Disgusting really.
