Zoe Saldana is moving way too fast with Bradley Cooper, and he’s freaking out

Last June, the tabloids started buzzing about a potential love connection brewing on set between Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana while the two were filming The Words in Vancouver, and these rumors persisted despite the fact that Zoe was in a 10-year relationship with fiancé Keith Britton. Then in early November, Zoe broke up with Keith, and everyone wondered whether Bradley was somehow involved in the split. In late December, reports began to fly that Zoe and Bradley were totally dating, and just a few days ago, nameless witnesses spotted the pair making outlike two seventh graders” at Sundance. Naturally, nobody secured a photo of this phenomenon, and I’m still having trouble believing that they’re an actual couple, mostly because the tabloids have linked Bradley with nearly every up-and-coming starlet:

Bradley Cooper may have bitten off more than he can chew with new gal Zoe Saldana. Bradley, who’s been dating a slew of Hollywood ladies, seems to have settled with Zoe, 33, but a source claims the relationship isn’t the casual good time that it appears.

“Zoe is really intense,” says an insider. “She just came out of a long-term relationship with Keith Britton, and now she really wants to settle down.” The insider says that she has decided Bradley, 37, is “the one” and wants to do what other women have tried — and failed [to do]: get a committment out of him. “Bradley really likes her, but he’s trying to keep things casual.”

The story also says that Zoe is angling to move in with Bradley as soon as he finds a home base in NYC, and he’s totally not feeling it. So is this story true? Who knows, but if it is, Zoe should probably take it down a few notches since she just got out of a serious relationship.

If Zoe and Bradley really are hooking up, this could also be a publicity move to create “intrigue” for their movie. He’s certainly not above such a tactic because, c’mon, the guy dined with JLo to similar effect. Then again, I just might be too skeptical about Bradley’s willingness to enter a relationship for romantic reasons. It might have something to do with the fact that I don’t see the attraction to this year’s Sexiest Man Alive at all.

    I can’t see at all the so called appeal of that woman. Her face is not soft, it’s masculine, she looks rugged and has a manly figure, yet stick thin.
    She is not articulated nor intelligent.
    Much overrated.

    Can we please replace her forever by Octavia Spencer ?

    Someone give her a sandwich..

      She is truly that skinny. From her first days on the screen. But at least she is toned, and you notice from her forearms, where the veins are not showing, a clear indication that she is not starving herself.

      Why people are not SEEING the play behind Cooper’s management is beyond me! Isn’t it clear: They promise bearding, but end up destroying the starlet’s credibility as an INDEPENDENT and strong woman!

      Isn’t it clear that Bradley pretends to play the game, but all of these women suddenly are too needy and demanding? Wake-up little starlets, when you agree to the standard bearding contract, make sure that an addendum is included, stating that no one in no way is to paint you desperate and needy. EVER!

      • Kimberly says:

        Cooper is actually gay AND his people have been trying to turn him into the next george clooney for like 2 years now which is why we keep reading these type of stories.

      • originalone says:

        You are forgetting @Kimberly, that even gay actors usually play honestly the bearding game. Not so with Bradley.

        Either his beards cannot stand him after playing the game for a few weeks, and he’s putting the word out there first that he is the one who is not much into them.

        Or HIS people are playing a game that is not so honest. Whatever it is, to me, he is coming out very shady indeed. But hey, I am mostly on the women’s side, not some actor with too much try-hard, and too many nasty blind vices (wife beating, cheating, bearding). Try to take it all with a grain of salt, ain’t it gossip after all? 😉

    She is the skinniest person ever.
    Why does’ he just come out? That picture alone with the mouth open. Anyone here ever see a straight guy with that look on his face? I don’t give a crap if he is, but these beardy relationships I just hate!

    • Maya says:

      The moment up and coming actors come out, their status as lead film stars is over. I don’t care about what arguments there are, the reality is that male romantic leads lose their appeal once the secret is out – irrespective of what PC people say.
      What happened to Zachary Quinto? He went from Star Trek to…a bit part in American Horror Story? I don’t think he is slated for any major film roles, with the exception of the Star Trek sequel and a comedy that has been hardly discussed.
      Sure it’s not fair, but this is how Hollywood operates and has operated for years. Openly gay actors don’t get the juicy roles and Bradley Cooper’s status as a romantic lead or uber macho male would cease to exist if he came out.

      • someone says:

        what about Matt Bomer? He’s not “out” out but it’s an open secret that he’s gay and I can’t help but crush on him …, anyone who watches white collar
        will understand! but I do understand where you’re getting at but also look at NPH I’d say he’s doing pretty well for himself with female and male audiences

  4. Charlotte says:

    I love her purple jumper!

  5. Marjalane says:

    She looks like she takes herself way too seriously. Not appealing. He’s never been appealing- if he’s not gay, it’s a shame because he’d be a lot more interesting probably.

  6. Maya says:

    She is so skinny she looks like a bobblehead.

  7. Tiffany27 says:

    I do not see the appeal of either of them.

  8. Zelda says:

    Anyone whose publicist allows them such a long string very public relationships with high-profile women is in the closet. Pure and simple. Otherwise, this manwhore thing would be a nightmare.

    And we don’t think of him as a whore, because deep down, we recognise that there is nothing in any photo anywhere that suggests he is sexual with any of them. Zero actual chemistry.

    Beards, beards, beards, the lot of them.

  9. maemay says:

    This is bargain basement bearding. Except for the movie premiere when do you see them together, at least JLO got a car ride and “leaked” stories about Bradley being nuts about her. This girl gets the obsessed leaked stories. Someone needs to renegotiate their terms of bearding because this is all tacky.

  10. Sara says:

    She needs to eat a lot. Grossly skinny imo. It is true if you come out it is hard for people to believe a romance between male and female when they know you don’t prefer women. And to be honest many people are still homophobic in this country and don’t want to watch “gay” movie stars on screen.

  11. Asli says:

    I would think that most people wouldn’t want to rush into another relationship after a very long one just ended.

    Therefore, I don’t believe this.

  12. Amanda says:

    He looks like Dennis from Always Sunny.

  13. Little Darling says:

    I totally don’t get the Coop vibe…he’s just all right. Nothing sexy to me, except maybe his eyes. He’s just not masculine enough for me.

    I’m also a little bored of seeing him wine and dine all of these starlets for “business meetings”. Very convenient isn’t it?

    Meh. This story kind of means nothing to me.

  14. JudyJudyJudy says:

    haha – i was thinking the same as others here…wouldnt be suprised to hear he was gay. too much shiny face.

  15. peaglad says:

    If you saw her interview with comingsoon.net about The Words. It was shameful. She appeared to openly and aggressively flirt with Coop. You can tell when he left, because then she was able to finish the interview properly. She is just too phony and contradicts herself in interviews. This whole relationship started from an affair she “allegedly” initiated. She has been talking in interviews, as of late, of how she wants to settle down, and keep having babies. She is aggressive. But she acts more like an obsessed fan who just got access to her favorite actor. I wished that she would have taken time after her last relationship. Word is it overlapped with this one. I know her personality type. Jekyll and Hyde. Its all about her. This may not end well. I had to look up “beard” in the urban dictionary, jeez, I had no idea that people were saying that about him. I just dislike her so much because she reminds me of someone who hurt me really bad. The personality and demeanor. Is this how Bradley treats women of color? Sneaking in and out of his house. Gross. She talks a lot and twitters like crazy. Would not be surprised if she is the one leaking stories. She is definitely enjoying her new-found attention. She doesn’t have a lengthy resume, or when in a movie, a lot of screen time. In the interview it is stated that she doesn’t even have a lot of screen time in The Words. This whole relationship is very risky. Coop did say he is a Publicist nightmare, as he just doesn’t listen and does what he wants. Tired of trying to support her. She’s sleeping her way to something. She’s trouble.

  16. Kimberly says:

    pretty sur he’s freaking out because he’s gay and that’s just the way it is.

    This story comes out because they’re fake reltationship time limit is done.

    Who will his people hook him up with to keep us normals from figuring out Cooper is really gay? Let’s start guessing . . .

    Pretty sure Kim Cuntdashian will try to say he’s dating her for publicity, but we know it’s a lie.

    My guess will be one of the newer actresses with a movie coming out to promote it.

    oh well, I wish Cooper was comfortable in his skin and not hide behind his mom and beards.

  17. jamie says:

    All I have to say is that photo of Cooper with his mouth open…..awesome! Thanks for the laugh.

  18. gee_gee says:

    Three things:

    1) If he’s freaking out, it’s because of that whole “vagina” thing.

    2) This story could be a setup as an explanation for their eventual breakup/explanation for why poor “hetero” B.Coop is still single.

    3) He’s not cute.

  19. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    I co-sign on being 100% bewildered as to what, exactly, this mans attraction is.
    The ONLY thing he has going for him is his HAIRLINE.
    Ugly, tiny, squinty oiggy eyes.
    HUGE massive penis of a nose dangling off his face.
    Paper thin lips.
    THIS is somebodies idea of “sexiest man alive” REALLY??? On what planet.
    OK, so this trick is supposed to be gay?? So? wheres the hottness?? At least Tom Cruise was a HOT HOT tamale! To his PR team: Look, boys, if you wanna fool us rubes into loving your closeted gay actor client at least have the decency to pick someone we can all really sink our teeth into because this just isent cutting the musterd. Surely there are TONS of HOT gay actors that can fill the leading man status bill?? Penis nose is like a bucket of ice water on my libedo. NEXT!!!!!

  20. NinaG says:

    I like Zoe Saldana and I’m indifferent toward Bradley Cooper, I was hoping her and her former co-star Sam Worthington would actually date, they had really great chemistry on and off the screen but both were in long term relationships at that time so they played it off as a more brother and sister relationship, but the interviews on youtube I have seen them in speak otherwise, but I think Sam has a new girlfriend now anyway:-(

  21. maria vanhaster says:

    These two don´t assume their “relation” and then present us with contradictions like this one…search it on the net: Zoe, monday, driving his car – the mercedes jeep – and gassing it up! This woman is so unatractive and with no class at all. The real reason beneath all the secretism of their relation – like if the common people would care, right? – is because she was jumping on his lap whilest dating the other. Became engaged in September, f….this one in between and came public with the rupture in November when it was all over before that. But they´re so uninteligent that assume that none of us is awhare of what is going on. And this one, with all those interviews where she speaks about truthness and integrity…ya…shore.! Plus i think she feels -unfortunatly – inferiorized by her “colour”. How come she only dates white blue eyes man? ridiculous.She found in him a stairway for more exposure. Gay or Straight this girl is leading the game and this time…i think he is gonna loose. I would use extra condoms with her. This is the type that if he does not move fast like she wants, will just be pregnat.
