Taylor Swift tried to hook up with Bradley Cooper at the Globes, she got denied

Would you like a trip to The Way Back Machine? I’ll set the scene – it was Oscar night, 2011. Taylor Swift arrives at the Vanity Fair party wearing a sparkly minidress and predatory eyes. She hunts for her prey… and eventually finds him: Jake Gyllenhaal, who just a few months beforehand had dumped her over the phone after months of cuddlefesting and apple-picking. Swifty zeroes in on her target and corners him by the VF bathrooms. Reportedly, Swifty and Jake had a super-serious conversation, after which Jake got scared and he left quickly while Swifty partied on. So she will forever be known as “The Girl Who Cornered Her Ex-Boyfriend By the Bathroom and Scared Him So Badly He Had To Leave.”

I was reminded of that story as soon as I saw Swifty at the Golden Globes. I waited patiently to hear stories of her movements that night – who did she talk to? Who did she corner? Who did she zero in on? Well, we finally have something! Radar claims Swifty was trying to get on Bradley Cooper. Oh… girl. Come here, Swifty. We need to have a conversation.

You just know there’s another song that’s going to written from this: Taylor Swift wants to hook up with Bradley Cooper, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively. And now the superstar singer has asked pal Jennifer Lawrence to introduce her to Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley.

The newly single 23-year-old country music singer desperately wants to date the hunky Hangover actor and has begged Jennifer, 22, to set up them up. However, when Jennifer sounded Bradley, 38, out about Taylor he said he wasn’t interested and that she was too young for him!

“Bradley has absolutely no intention of getting together with Taylor,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “First of all, her reputation precedes her. Bradley is very wary of dating someone who is a bit of a serial dater like Taylor. He thinks she’s far too young for him and wants to date someone his own age, not 16-years younger because he’s ready for something serious.

“It was a little awkward for Bradley . Jennifer came to him and told him that Taylor was interested in getting together. He had to politely decline, knowing full well that Jennifer and Taylor are friends. It was an ambitious move from Taylor, but she’s going to have fixate on someone else as Bradley’s just not that into her,” the source divulged.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Taylor’s back on the market again after she was dumped by One Direction’s Harry Styles because she wouldn’t, um, keep up with him sexually.

“Taylor is so concerned that the public will think she’s promiscuous because she dates around, that she doesn’t put out,” a pal close to the We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together singer told RadarOnline.com.

“What she doesn’t get is that the guys keep dumping her because she’s being a prude.”

Another source says the fact that she constantly talked about antiques was another turn-off for the young singer!

“Harry found Taylor a little sexually uninterested,” a source close to the star revealed.

[From Radar]

Yes, that’s right. The reason Bradley Cooper isn’t in to her is because of her AGE. Of course. Not because she’s in possession of a vadge. True, I still don’t know for sure if Bradley is gay, but here’s something I do know for sure: his past two girlfriends (Zoe Saldana and Renee Zellweger) have spent more time with his mother than with him. So, if “girlfriend” is code for “BFFs with Bradley’s mom,” I’d say Swifty could be a solid candidate. But you know Harvey Weinstein wants Bradley to have a better girlfriend for his Oscar campaign. Somebody appropriate, somebody sexy but not too young. Hm… I wonder if Harvey would try to set Bradley up with Jessica Chastain?

    Is this woman so insecure that she has to have a man 24/7? Reminds me of Kate Hudson before she got pregnant.

  2. Hubbahun says:

    If she hones in on the Renner, Imma taking her down :P

  3. phaksi says:

    her face looks weird in the first picture

  4. cat says:

    So, CB, Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger reportedly LIVED together. Maybe they were just really good at not getting pap’d and they just caught her with his mom. The Zoe Saldana thing, I don’t know what to make about it. Renee Zellweger, not a huge fan but watched her on the Actors Studio recently, I don’t think she would pretend. She might hang in longer than necessary (but look that Kenny Chesney marriage was very short!)… B. Cooper just might be one of those guys who is ‘unavailable’ and extraordinarily, a bit uncomfortably, close to his mom. I’ve met a bunch of those in NYC! He might have learned it here. Doesn’t mean he is gay. And if he is saying Jen Lawrence is too young for him, well, Taylor would fall in the same category… Plus — she would be much too much for him. Did not know the Glyllenhaal story. My bf saw Taylor interviewed on 60 Minutes (I think) and was impressed by her but maybe she’s good at that type thing. That being said, I think she will just realize over time how relationships really are.

    • Gen says:

      I have to say that Cooper is not gay unless he has changed sexual preferences the past 3 months. I grew up with him and his family as my family lived several homes away and we were in the same age range. His mom is awesome and her husband passing was devastating to her and Cooper. Cooper’s father was a very strong, almost super alpha male. He was a good, smart and kind man.

      As far as Swift goes, what Tina Fey at the Globes was true. Spend some time with yourself, get to know you.
      Swift needs to build strong self-esteem. I think she’s smarter and craftier like many CB’s seem to think. Her constant manipulation of image is ridiculous with all of these guys. Also, she needs to stop dating guys younger than her. Seriously, it makes her look foolish hooking up with a Kennedy still in high school. I feel like Taylor is possibly the emotional equivalent of a 17 or 18 year old or perhaps she’s such a control freak she feels like she may have the upper hand with the younger ones.
      If she’s interested in antiques, build a collection, get some other interests, hang out with your friends. Perhaps she should be a bit looser in her rigid fun sunny go lucky personality routine. I don’t mean have sex with every man she goes on a date with–just be a bit more relaxed.

    • GByeGirl says:

      He’s from Philly. Philadelphia guys are notorious mama’s boys. Usually sweet, sometimes icky.

    • Brittney says:

      Cat, the gay rumors are based on a LOT more than just his closeness to his mom. I hate the idea of “outing” other people, but I also hate that we STILL have so far to come and so many actors and actresses are forced to hide their true selves just to keep studios inside the wallets of the ignorant masses.

      My firsthand knowledge will never have any validity in an Internet comment (just too easy to make stuff up, obviously) and I just saw Gen’s comment (which is equally valid and very well may be 100% true), but if you’re interested, I can dig up some online archives from the early days of celebrity gossip, when both Bradley and Jeremy Renner were up-and-coming actors who never tried to hide the fact that they were gay. It wasn’t until their careers picked up steam (with Jack & Bobby and Dahmer, respectively) that their histories were re-written and they started living in the closet again.

      Also, there are plenty of rumors about Renee too, and how she’s had mutual “bearding” relationships (Kenny included). These might be completely baseless, but none of us will ever really know the truth, especially when the people involved have literally made careers out of pretending to be something they’re not.

  5. marie says:

    so, something like this then..
    “Dude, desperate at 2 o’clock.”
    “Who Swifty, nah that’s alright-I’m gonna need my beard to stick around for longer than a month or two.”
    Jennifer walks over to consult with Taylor, there’s a lot of head shaking and Jennifer walks back with
    “She’s a fan of the crazy eyes, she’ll give you 4 months, 5 photo ops and 2 songs-final offer”
    “Nah Jen that’s all right, my mom thinks her singing’s caterwauling-she is not a fan”

  6. T.Fanty says:

    Is this her “thing?” Does Swifty and her team actually think that the public is buying this junk anymore? I’m not being sarcastic, but am genuinely curious – at what point does this mixing and matching all just become an elaborate joke?

    On the B.Coop side of things, I was re-watching Kitchen Confidential on DVD last night, which is so utterly brilliant and hilarious that one doesn’t even get frightened by seeing him with a meat cleaver in his hand.

  7. Amelia says:

    I really haven’t the faintest idea what Swifty’s game is here. Usually she and her team are always on top of her public image keeping it squeaky clean. Is she going to do a Miley and completely change direction? Or does she just not give a sh*t?
    Slight side note, does anyone know if Swify’s a smoker? I was looking at the 2nd picture and thought she’s looking a bit older than normal. Or she’s just got quite dry skin and has been a bit heavy handed with the pale foundation .

  8. maria says:

    I think she needs to take some time and discover herself without a partner.

    I’m not trying to hear the prude BS though; she’s young and enjoying herself, however, she doesn’t seem to have an identity of her own outside a relationship.

    Also, stop writing songs about your exes! I get it provides entertainment but that alone would deter me from wanting to date her.

  9. Gem says:

    Gosh Swift, calm down. I refuse to believe a happy, secure person can be this way if the stories are true.

  10. pinkheart says:

    AHA HA HA HA HA… thats al1!

  11. DanaG says:

    Swifty doesn’t put out? Really? The amount of guys she goes out with the holidays she goes with them on and she doesn’t sleep with them? Sorry I don’t buy that it’s a little late to play the vestal virgin. I don’t think it matter anymore everyone thinks she slept with all of them anyway. Bradley Cooper has more sense then I thought he did. Wonder who Taylor will hit on next maybe sparkles if he and K Stew have split?

  12. only1shmoo says:

    So I guess Tina & Amy’s sage -and very public- advice fell on deaf ears as far as Swifty’s concerned. This girl really isn’t doing herself any favours!

  13. Kimbob says:

    This story is wrought w/rich material!! Yes, Taylor’s putting herself out there as “the perfect beard.” Thing is, she’s NOT.

    Taylor needs to learn the art of beard contracts…LOL! Kissing, telling, and making an ex-beard the chorus of a country song….well….that ain’t cutting it w/guys who are headlining major movies.

    Yeah, Gyllenhaal fell for it, but now he’s learned, and the rest of H-wood knows the story now, too. The moral of the story is beards don’t want to end up in a country song, which is now Swifty’s patented schtick.

    Well played, Bradley…well played! I’m loving’ it!

  14. vixo says:

    This hair colour ages her terribly, it looks like grey hair.

  15. Anastasia says:

    Wait, she got her friend to tell a guy she likes him?

    Is she in fourth grade??

    • Sweet Dee says:

      That was my thought! I’m also surprised JLaw puts up with her. I’d imagine her being terribly annoyed with Taylor.

      I’m choosing to believe that BCoopz wants a beard/gf/whatevs his own age because he actually wants someone he can have an intelligent conversation with. People keep linking him with 20-somethings and his answer is always the same.

  16. Nina W says:

    She’s young and silly and in the public eye. I had a million crushes at her age and hate to think what I would have been like if I had had her opportunities to meet men.

    • Cecada says:

      Yeah I think you’re onto something. She’s a kid in a candy store, and wants to taste every variety.

      Now, if she’s still doing this at 30 or 40, that’s another story.

    • Miss Thang says:

      AMEN! Lots of young women act this way. She’s perfectly normal, only everyone is watching.

    • Brittney says:

      You know, I don’t know why I never thought of it this way. Her emotional maturity is more on par with a 16-year-old’s, and when I was that age, I wouldn’t have even considered settling down with one person when I had my pick of Hollywood heartthrobs.

      Then again, I still wouldn’t have been comfortable letting my dating life overshadow my career; girl is famous for her boyfriends and even bases her writing around them now, too… and that’s a pretty terrible example to set for other young women.

  17. serena says:

    Swifty is pissing me off. If she doesn’t want to have the reputation of a serial dater than she better stop searching for boyfriends no stop. Really, it’s not even a month…wtf, calm down girl.

  18. cecizahn says:

    I also think that no guy would want their relationship end up like a song…wrong move Swifty

  19. Jess says:

    Jennifer Lawrence was so excited that she met Taylor Swift for the first time at the People’s Choice Awards. That was like a week ago. I would hardly call meeting one time “friends”. I think this is BS, and at this point, people need to back off of Taylor and stop dragging Bradley into cheap gossip stories about his would be romances with people half his age. I think he wants to be taken seriously and tends to date women his own age. I don’t really see what he’s done to get this kind of rep for wanting young girls.

  20. Marissa says:

    She’s like twenty-three years old right? Although she acts like a f-cking temperamental teenager, I wouldn’t criticize her personal life if she would just stick to dating. The minute she targets one guy – BOOM, automatic relationship. She can date as many guys as she pleases but dear God, she needs to stop rushing into relationships! She’s so obsessed with the idea of being in love than actually having love. Girlfriend needs to figure herself before jumping into another twenty-second relationship. And I really don’t understand why people get a gay vibe from Bradley Cooper. He’s been in a two-year relationship with Renee Zellwegger. And who the f-ck cares if he’s close with his mom? I’d rather have a guy that adores his mother, than a guy that couldn’t give a sh-t about his family.

  21. Skins says:

    Wonder if this will require a song about Bradley?

  22. flutters says:

    As much as I think Taylor is into PR relationships, I think this story is an example of somebody piling onto the “joke’s on Taylor” brigade that’s going on now. I don’t think it’s true at all. I wouldn’t even be surprised if this leak came from Bradley Cooper’s team.

  23. Shira says:

    Back off bitch, he’s J-Law’s.

  24. Shira says:

    Also, I love Brad and I think he performed brilliantly in Silver Linings Playbook, but he can show up to the Oscar’s with Jen Aniston, Angelina, Scarlett and a few others and he still won’t win it. It’s going to be Daniel’s.

  25. ernie says:

    I get a not so sane vibe form Swifty, there’s something off about that girl. She makes me really uncomfortable.

    As for Bradley, I really liked him in SLP, so I’m tolerating him more these days. But any dating rumor just reminds me of the blinds about him being petite downstairs. At this point, for me, it overshadows everything else. Totally unfair, I know. I can’t help it.

    Speaking of blinds, there’s a new one about (supposedly) Swifty losing it over her recent dating image.

  26. Helene says:

    I’m surprised to see that she already has wrinkles on her forehead. She’s only 23.

  27. Gia says:

    If Bradley wants to keep this ‘straight’ storyline going, hooking up with Swifty is not the way to go. Stepping out with Denise Richards was his first major PR mistake. Stepping out with Taylor would basically be an admission.

  28. It'sJustBlance says:

    I’m sorry, but being “The Girl Who Cornered Her Ex-Boyfriend By the Bathroom and Scared Him So Badly He Had To Leave” makes me like her a little bit. Some guys need a little fear put in them and it sounds like Jake isn’t the best boyfriend material. Good for her, even if she is a bit nuts.

  29. Annie says:

    Ok she might be a little try hard but people need to STOP insinuating that she’s a slut because she dates around. Dating two guys per year is slutty? really? She’s just getting to know guys and see what she likes, which I find more intelligent and healthy than being super young like Bieber and Selena and settling into relationships that just don’t work or last. That relationship was pretty bad. They’re too young to already have a bad relationship under their belts. That stuff really gets to you in the long run.

    Dating is not the same as sleeping around and it should not be placed at the same level because people who sleep around don’t even bother to call each other back or make an effort to go on an actual date and care about the person they just slept with. Dating is not casual, it’s not promiscuous. She’s just trying to find someone. It looks worse than it is because of all the media attention.

    Also SO WHAT if she writes break up and heart break songs. She’s not the first to do it! THAT IS ALL ART EVER!

    Can’t believe I just defended her but people cannot keep putting her at the same level of someone whorish just because she dates guys.

    • garvel says:

      I agree with several of your points but she invites the negative comments and criticism when she publicly disses her ex-boyfriends via her music. She should learn to keep her private life private.

      • Annie says:

        If she kept her life private people like Garvel would run out of a hobby. Can we not pretend we don’t enjoy reading about these shenanigans? Let’s make sure that what we think, say and do is consistent with each other. You cannot ask a person to be private and then willingly visit gossip sites to read about their love lives, ok?

        Also, newsflash – artists use their personal experiences as inspiration.
        I know right? But seriously. They do.
        Artists are inspired by their own feelings to create new works. It’s crazy but it’s the truth.

        Now I’m not saying she’s a saint and I do believe she shouldn’t put the blame solely on the men, and she IS a stage 5 Clinger BUT my original point still stands. Dating is not the same as sleeping around. And writing music about past loves is not a new thing. People need to calm down.

      • garvel says:

        annie-oh and you never partake in any type of gossip?! Give me a break. Are you the gossip police? Why do you visit a gossip site if you are soooo above it all?!By the way, since Taylor swift’s mug and so called music pollutes the public air waves then the public has every right to respond to it!

      • Annie says:

        I’m not the one clutching my pearls and telling her to keep her life private only to be on the commenting section of a gossip site that is talking about her love life. We’re all here for the same reasons and I’m not denying it – I’m fully aware that I too like celebrity gossip. Only a MORON would deny caring about and/or denounce celebrity gossip on a freaking celebrity gossip site. Get off that high horse. You like gossip and you’re not one to tell someone how to live their life when they’re not doing anything wrong. Dating is not bad, it’s not slutty. She’s not LeAnn Rimes.

        And if it’s her music, it’s her version of things. We all have our own perspective of situations and we recant them accordingly.

    • garvel says:

      Annie…oh I mean Taylor…give it a rest and go back to high school and get yourself a new boy friend:)

    • Memphis says:

      I understand dating a lot when you’re young….BUT she doesn’t seem to be dating to explore what she likes and trying to grow…shes dating because she CAN’T be alone! She has no concept of what she wants she just wants a man, any man so she doesn’t have to be alone, so she can start her fairytale romance.

      That’s not dating, it’s desperation.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      I agree with you totally Annie. Thanks for expressing it so well.

  30. Nibbi says:

    how come no one is talking about her insanely sudden big/ fake-looking chest here??? i mean sure push-up or foam whatever but why?? being so petite and young and cute is part of her thing, what is the deal with suddenly needing to look so buxom- er, not to mention- sddenly so much older? i mean the dress is just wrong- the way it fits looks really fake and ridiculous. for her remaining shreds of “authenticity”, i hope it was just a bad padding decision (for god’s sake it looks like that weird start-way-low-with-padding trick that courtney stodden pulls) and not actual gigantic fake bolt-ons. ew

  31. ms.steel says:

    Paris should be worried by now, taylor is soo swift, shes catching up fast in longest list of bf competition. and taylor is still young and counting.

  32. Holden says:

    Isn’t he in a relationship with that Zoe whatever girl from “The Words”? It’s hard to imagine any celebrity putting up with her shit for very long.

  33. Reece says:

    Off the title alone: HAHAHAHAHA…!

    Gay or straight it makes me like him more that he doesn’t covet 20yr olds.

  34. natalina says:

    why does she get away with being a slag>

  35. LAK says:

    i’ve finally figured out who Bradley Cooper reminds me of. Hrithik Roshan. or is it the other way around.


  36. erika says:

    how does this chick make millions $$$ of dollars when apparently all she does is spend her energy trying to chase after some perfect boyfriend…god…she is WIERD!

    Drives me nuts when my Mom/sis in law oodle over her “Oh, she’s just too darling.” “Oh, I like her, now she’s cute.” “Oh, I know! isn’t she just wonderful?” and i’ve tried to intervene with stories of swifty’s alleged teen rape but….

    the girl is WIERD!?!? i swear her career is in second place next to trying to secure the perfect boyfriend.

    I wish we had a time machine, we could send her back to 1955, she’d be PERFECT for it!

    n’ Swifty? a lil advice from a tired ho who’s walked those cement streets of love, ‘antiquing’ and cuddling with kittens are sweet hobbies but don’t expect your dude to get on that train to Cutesville. fact of dating life, let your BF have his football n’ wings private time w/out you and you can escort Mum to all the antique shops and finish w/ afternoon tea.

    i’m just sayin…

  37. FreeSpiritedGirl says:


  38. TheOneAndOnly says:

    Erika, she makes millions because tone deaf 8 yr olds and tone deaf soccer moms have never heard or listened to selena, Janis Joplin, Aretha, Ella, Pat Benatar,etc. and think she’s the shit; furthermore, her team has the full court marketing technique down, for her latest piece of juvenile drivel, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, Papa Johns, Covergirl, Macy’s were all used as marketing platforms; as posters on the GG story stated – she’s the most fake gimmicky “star” out there. How can you be yourself when everything is a marketing construction?
    BTW, hate to be snarky but 90s supermodels were glamorous,beautiful, this girl is plain and boring.

  39. Meganne says:

    She seems insecure; like she’s incapable of being alone for a little while. I like the color of this dress but not on her.

  40. Meganne says:

    She seems insecure like she’s incapable of being alone for a little while. I like the color of this dress but not on her.

  41. taxi says:

    Has she dated anyone lately over 18? Jumping from high school kids to an adult seems a big stretch for her. Did she have any luck with the Schwartzenegger boy? She was chasing that until Mama Maria shut that down. That was pre-Conor K.
    I think she still wants to go to a prom but she’s looking desperate lately.

  42. Kate says:

    I don’t believe this. Firstly TS has recently seemed allergic to anyone old enough to drink, and he’s almost 40. Secondly Gossip cop have spoken to reps of all three, and say it’s BS. (Though admittedly it isn’t something any of their people would admit if their nails were being extracted with pliars. But still.) Finally Josh Hutcherson told an interviewer at the SAG awards that JLaw would make no sense for a while, because she’d just caught sight of Taylor Swift and was freaking out. That doesn’t speak well of Jlaw’s musical taste, but it also doesn’t sound like they’re BFFs.

  43. Kat says:

    Bradley Cooper? Eww squared, Swifty!

  44. Memphis says:

    This girl has issue.

    Can’t she be alone for like five damn minutes?

  45. Nicky says:

    None of this makes any sense. if bradley needed a gf for his oscar campaigned why did he break up with zoe saldana in the middle of the award season? especially if she was only there as a beard?

  46. Zwella Ingrid says:

    I used to like Bradley Cooper, but he has recently been creeping me out. Especially after reading an article recently that talked about his obsession with his hair.

  47. Taylor thinks one night stands are love. I call it prostitution. Love is marriage of years only&pure dedication(no break up).

  48. Nicolette says:

    Is it me or does this girl seem desperate to be with somebody? Is she not comfortable enough in her own skin to be single? She’s coming across as needy, and clingy and no man likes that. Any guy I know finds that a big turnoff. Wasn’t she ready to marry and have babies with the Kennedy kid, and didn’t she creepily buy a house across the street?

  49. Rachelstein says:

    That ‘overly obsessed girlfriend’ Facebook page/meme… I can see it being totally based on Taylor. Creep.

  50. Charles says:

    Look, I completely understand she is young and playing the field like most young people do. I also understand that she is attempting this under a harsh spotlight of media scrutiny, however, so many men have ran from her that I’m beginning to think its her, not them.

  51. F5 says:

    Brad’s toupee is really awful -_-

  52. Adrien says:

    I don’t believe this gossip. Right. Like Taylor is suddenly JLaw’s bestie now

  53. Monique says:

    Gawd, I have never wanted to makeover someone so much in life! Would someone please give her a pixie cut or dye her black and get blunt bangs. SOMETHING, please. I can’t handle the blonde, the curls, the updos. Argh!!

  54. Aura says:

    I don’t know if she’s one of those that calls the apps on herself, but if so, that is a big reason why she’s so damn immature. Also, Bradley supposedly found out Zoe was doing this.?

  55. WendyNerd says:

    I’m actually starting to worry about her. I mean, the constant boyfriends and her apparent inability to be single or with someone who isn’t famous seems to suggest something wrong with her mentally or emotionally. It’s starting to get a bit sad and scary.

  56. dan says:

    amazing how gullible some ppl are

  57. Viktory Gin says:

    Cooper’s a capricorn. They have a propensity to date/prefer mature women irrespective of actual age. I can totally see him shutting down someone as seemingly infantile as Hearts-and-Unicorns Taylor Swift.

    I’m all for a Jess Chastain hookup. Anything to distance her from Hiddleston.

  58. Asdfg says:

    Look at that arm hair! O.O Sorry, for being so blunt and off topic I just haven’t seen arm hair on a woman since 2002! LOL
