Bradley Cooper has dinner with… Rachel McAdams

Bradley Cooper, 34, may have jetted off to Madrid with Renee Zellweger over the weekend, but it doesn’t seem like he’s ready to commit to the tiny Bridget Jones star yet. People Magazine reports that Bradley had an intimate two hour dinner date with lovely Canadian actress Rachel McAdams, 30, in New York on Friday night. Witnesses tell People, which covers this story in their “What You Missed Over the Weekend” video segment, that Cooper and McAdams were having a great time at NY restaurant Odeon and were seen laughing and joking.

Bradley and Rachel were both in 2005′s Wedding Crashers together so maybe they were catching up on old times. It’s hard not to think that Cooper is some kind of cad after all the stories we’ve heard about his dates but maybe he’s cultivating that image so that it will keep his name in the press. At least there are no paparazzi photos of the dinner – like when he was out separately with Jennifer Aniston and Renee Zellweger.

I kind of feel bad for Zellweger, 40, because it always seems like she’s setting herself up for heartbreak. She comes across as so timid and fragile in interviews, and she had that failed five month marriage to Kenny Chesney. The last we heard of her love life she was quietly dating MSNBC anchor Dan Abrams, but that relationship was apparently over earlier this year. Renee told Glamour in May that she was happy and enjoyed being single, calling it “it’s a pretty self-indulgent lifestyle,” but added that she wanted a guy who was well rounded and passionate about life. She also said that she reveres her privacy and that she won’t talk about who she is dating “Because it’s dumb. It leads to nowhere good. I let everybody else in the media do that for me. It takes the responsibility off my shoulders!” They’re sure doing it now, and I doubt Renee is comfortable with that, especially now that the news is out that her new boyfriend is not exclusive. Maybe the great sex more than makes up for the compromises to her privacy.

    No! She’s way too good for him. Please be untrue.

  2. Nev says:

    Why can’t we just leave this guy alone. He is going to run through the dating process so what?
    How is that news? Let me know when he sign up for the next movie. His dating habits is about interesting as watching grass grow.

  3. Praise St. Angie! says:

    wow, those are some great pics of her…she’s just beautiful.

  4. Dan says:

    So basically the guy went on a handful of dates…goodtimes, what’s the problem?

  5. ash says:

    I absolutely adore her. I would have an extremely difficult time thinking of someone who IS good enough for her.

  6. tamikla says:

    Isn’t she in a relationship with Josh Lucas?

  7. Howie says:

    I thought she was with Josh Lucas?

  8. Tia C says:

    People, the story says they had dinner together, that doesn’t mean they’re dating. That said – man, could she be any cuter? I don’t think so.

  9. surely would says:

    This is some wacky fanfiction – McAdams is dating Josh Lucas and has been for some time, so how does this one dinner become a knock on poor wee fragile Renee?

    Hmm, methinks someone is working overtime on convincing us that BC is a ladies man. I hope he is paying his people well, they are working their butts off to keep him in the press. So is it that he wants more fame and negotiating power, or is it an attempt at distraction from something?

  11. sdfsd says:

    oh. what. EVER. Hes new and im already sick of this guy.

  12. Zoe (The Other One) says:

    She is beyond divine. Love her too much.

    He is gay. Working hard to hide it. Who in the hell knows why. Someone should tell him it’s 2009.

  13. Cinderella says:

    Princess Pea and Zoe-totally, totally agree.

  14. Kerri says:

    I love her so much. she is one of the better actress I’ve seen in a while and not upity and full of issues like some of the others.

    And yes – one date does not equal dating and to agree with Nev, why can’t we just leave him alone.

  15. princess pea says:

    I don’t understand why there’s always someone posting about how we should leave the celebs alone. Then they wouldn’t be famous. Or rich. And the gossip bloggers would go out of business. So would the tabloids and the paparazzi. This talk is all important work for the economy, folks. In these tough times we have to rally together and support each other. KEEP TALKING ABOUT CELEBRITIES!

    (ps. if any among you feel this way, why do you read gossip blogs? I am genuinely curious.)

  16. Kerri says:

    I’m with you princess pea – I just tend to feel sorry for the poor sap – that’s why I say leave him alone.

    And besides its good to keep a balance, some attack and others defend.

  17. princess pea says:

    Fair enough Kerri. I don’t feel any sympathy for him, except for the part where he was mostly obscure before and maybe he didn’t realize that we’d pay attention. We sure weren’t when the affair started. I have less sympathy for LeAnn, though, ’cause she’s said some dumb stuff about this.

  18. maritza says:

    Rachel is the prettiest, they would make a beautiful couple, that is… if it were true.

  19. whatever says:

    It’s hard for me to look at her and not think about how cute she was with Ryan Gosling. Those two were the cuteness.

  20. Jennie says:

    I love Rachel, she is SO talented.
