Did Bradley Cooper get dumped by a model because of his “weird” foot fetish?

One of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood is that Quentin Tarantino has a major foot fetish. I doubt he’s alone – I generally think that a significant number of dudes are into feet, which is fine with me. On the scale of “adorable” to “creepy,” I tend to think foot fetishes are pretty harmless. I once went with a guy who had a thing about my ears – that was weird, but I found kind of cute too, because I would never think about being in love with a dude’s ears.

Anyway, In Touch Weekly has a really funny story about Bradley Cooper maybe/probably/doubtfully having a thing about feet. Specifically the feet of his “girlfriend” who we’re only hearing about now because she dumped him for his foot fetish!

Bradley Cooper just can’t catch a break in the dating department. After his recent breakup with actress Zoë Saldana, 34, his Silver Linings Playbook co-star Jennifer Lawrence, 22, stepped in and set him up with a friend, model Laura Simpson, 28.

But In Touch has learned that romance has gone sour. “After a bunch of dates, things got very awkward,” a source tells the new issue of In Touch, on stands now.

The source claims Bradley, 38, has a thing for feet and would often ask Laura to text him pictures of hers. “He was always touching her feet,” the friend explains. “It was weird, so she broke it off.”

According to the source, the duo had “six real dates and were hooking up for about a month,” when Laura pulled the plug.

Yes, the problem is that some dudes ONLY care about the feet. Like, they can’t even look up and see the rest of your body. They can’t even look into your eyes because they are so enchanted by your feet. Is Bradley That Guy? That Guy Who Concentrates Too Hard On Feet? Well… I doubt it. I think this story was probably just made up by some famewhore who was maybe negotiating a contract with Bradley and he didn’t know where to look so he just went with FEET!

Am I alone in thinking that a foot fetish is not a dealbreaker? Imagine it was Michael Fassbender who was into your feet. Or Benedict Cumberbatch. Or Hugh Jackman. See? All of a sudden, your feet are like, “Hello sailor!”

    I could deal with it as long as it meant a daily foot massage. 😀

    • Jill says:


      I suppose the worst part would be feeling self-conscious that you’d have to keep your feet looking perfect all the time.

  2. Viv says:

    I bet Zoe was down with whateva- they should have stayed together.
    Fassbender, you are welcome to my feet anytime.

  3. carrie says:

    he may make a club with Quentin Tarantino

  4. marie says:

    Have you dated a foot guy like this Kaiser? I’ve known guys who appreciate feet but never one who can’t see past them, that would be odd.

  5. Amelia says:

    Nah, foot fetishes aren’t a dealbreaker. So long as it’s not Sex and the City strength (I’m thinking of that episode where Charlotte makes a strange deal with the guy who works at a shoe store).
    If you want to paint my toenails and give me a foot rub, go for it.
    If you want a photo album full of pictures – jog on.

  6. Maria says:

    with every fetish its about how much it is of the sexuality. if its really the most you should have the same fetish, there are women who love to get their feet “worshipped” and others who cant even stand when someone looks at them.

    i think a nice message and a little kissing and licking are nice once in a while but to me it shouldnt be the major part of his sexuality. i for example love wearing stockings but a guy that needs them everytime and cant perform without them and (ugh) wants to wear them himself would be a dealbreaker for me.

    a foot fetish is as it seems nowadays one of the most normal things, sometimes i think a guy that would say he is into huge boobs would be considered a bigger pervert.

    lots of guys are into it, on different levels. everytime i google a female star one of the first results is “feet”. (with guys its “gay”, obviously)

  7. Ms Kay says:

    Haha, it takes me back to Boomerang when Eddie Murphy character, who wasn’t exactly a foot fetish per se but after sex, he pulled the sheets up to check the woman feet and ran up the hills when he saw ugly toes 😀

    • Macey says:

      I always think of that movie when I hear about someone with a foot fetish.

      Feet fetishes are actually one of the top fetishes out there. You would be surprised at how obsessed some ppl are with them. there are tons of websites and clubs dedicated to foot lovers. I think there’s even a museum dedicated to them somewhere
      Personally, feet gross me out but I do always check them out (and feel slightly odd for doing so). Ive never been turned on by feet but I’ve been turned off by really ugly, freaky feet or toes that haven’t been tended to in awhile.

  8. Lolly says:

    No. She dumped him cause she was sick of using a strap on

    • stellalovejoydiver says:

      Oh snap.

      A dissertation on closeted male film stars & people’s problem with their own hangups & lack of sensuality.

      I have gay friends who I’ve seen more than a few times, giving their best (‘F–hags’) girlfriends a foot rub like you give any friend who asks a neckrub.
      Makes me wonder if as an “allegedly” new closeted star (who can’t come out so early in his career as leadning man material)…since his very well done, subtle nose job which elevated his leading man potential from – “Maybe TV sitcom lead but never film” to now Theatrical Film Star status. He’s just another Mark Feuerstein type & talentwise. Think about it. Where’s Mark? Only a lead on TV by way of producing a show for himself. If he’d had his schnoz paired down to profile readiness, he might be in theaters instead of living rooms. I used to get the two mixed up before B.C.’s Rhinoplasty.
      If he wanted to find a way to look like he’s constantly dating women but just can’t seem to click.
      No easier way than to scare every one of them off if. There are of course other ways but that’s one that isn’t a potential PR disaster like being seriously into hardcore S/M or water sports. Though as time goes on everything will (as it should) just make everyone out there shrug & say “So what? Who isn’t”
      More than 1/2 of people straight or gay are into what very boring, sensually bereft people would call kinky. You’d be amazed at the people who are the kind of religious, psalm spouting, bible thumpers who are beyond just kinky behind closed doors.

      If I were a burgeoning film star, I’d think it were genius to just pull out a non too shocking but just annoying fetish every time I’d gotten past the perfunctory couple of weeks or mos. dating yet another girl “Beard”. I imagine I could avoid sex at all if I told her I wanted to wait till we were really solid with each other, knew each other really well, were serious before we “do it” then if you give her enough heavy petting & are a great kisser & she’s a star f**ker, you could get 6-8 weeks out of her before she hits the WTF button, Then you drop your fetish & make it sound like you can’t get off without it.
      Yes folks – you’d be surprised what goes on behind the closed doors of mostly your most straight up, buttoned up, uptight, conservative type straight friends.

      Also, the percentage of men who troll gay chat rooms & have profiles on Grndr & other sex sites who are actively looking for man2man hookups identify as married or straight is about 30% & that’s only the ones who bristle at being referred to as Bi. If you lump in those who say they’re Str8/Bi then you’re up around 35-40%. So ladies, don’t be so sure you know exactly what your husband or bf is doing if you’re getting that feeling over too frequent or regular periods when he’s off your radar & it’s always “Work or family related” or he claims to have a hobby or sport or a “Client” who’s out of town that he must regularly see. Don’t be so sure it’s another woman.

    Jesus, in that first picture he looks like Stains, the cupcake hypnotized dog featured on THE SOUP.

    He’s got a great head of hair, his eyes are a pretty color but I don’t find him attractive at all.

  10. Monika says:

    He looks soo weird in this pictures, very alike to David Hasselhoff and it’s horrible because I’ve always found him very attractive…until now.

  11. GypsyHeart says:

    So cute! I won’t mind him touching my feet. 🙂 Everybody has some kind of fetish. I like touching the lower back of my guy. *blush* ^_^

    On a different note, there’s an Indian actor who looks similar to Bradley Cooper, except he has green eyes. You can see the similarity in their faces, http://images.idiva.com/media/photogallery/2011/Oct/hrithik-bradley_600x450.jpg

  12. Miss Kiki says:

    Yuck I hate feet, Mr Kiki isn’t even allowed to look at mine for too long in case I get nervy. Trust BCoop (and his serial killer eyes) to have a thing for feet, probably stems from him giving his Mum pedicures as a kid. I betcha he has a collection of sawn off feet in his basement.

    • Hoya_chick says:

      Hahahaha this cracked me up! Everything you said and more. He gets creepier each day. Ofcourse he would have a foot fetish, with his creepy face and permed hair. Eww. Yuck I hate feet. I don’t want anyone touching mine and I sure as hell ain’t touching theirs.

    • Jen34 says:

      Hahaha. I think you are correct.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Like you I’m consistent, don’t touch mine, I won’t touch yours. I used to think he just had a severe case of Doucheface but it’s gone well beyond that now. As is my mantra when it comes to BCoop, will he f*ck you then kill you? Kill you then f*ck you? Or both at the same time time? As for the perm, you know he got it cos his Mummy told him it would make him look handsome.

  13. MrsBPitt says:

    Feet…um, no…feet gross me out…so a guy who was into feet…no, just no!! Bradley is really looking strange lately…something wierd is going on with his face, but I can’t put my finger (or toe) on it!!

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Glad to see I’m not alone.

      • EmmaStoneWannabe says:

        Same here! That’s just too weird for me. I actually didn’t realize until now how non-creepy that would be to a lot of people…eww

    • carrie says:

      too blue blue eyes

    • Shira says:

      It’s the clean shave. He did it for a movie and luckily commented on not doing it normally because he breaks out.

    • DreamyK says:

      Yeah, I just can’t unsee him now that I’ve visualized him as a woman. First it was an emu, and I got past that, but now he looks like a PTA mom and I just can’t work up any enthusiasm for him now. No more Coop love.

  14. He’s allowed to fetishize my feet anytime 😉

  15. Cats says:

    Total deal breaker for me – I hate feet. They are so ugly. Especially mine

    • megs283 says:

      Yeah. I’m tall, and my feet are big (i.e. unfeminine). Honestly, one of my nightmares is that I’ll lose a thumb and they’ll transplant my big toe up to my hand or something. My big toe is HUGE!

  16. serena says:

    LOOOL must be fault of his creepy killer eyes.

  17. Tessa says:

    I’m not turned off by fetishes. People like what they like. We’re all human. I’m not super crazy about feet, but I wouldn’t go to a magazine and rag on Bradley because he is. That’s a shitty thing to do.

    Also, he needs to cut his hair. Someone needs to tell him he’s hotter with short hair.

  18. kibbles says:

    Michael K at Dlisted had the funniest pic to go with this story: http://www.dlisted.com/files/bcooplovesfeet.jpg

  19. Jen34 says:

    I was on a bus once with a group of about 5 girls. We were scattered in different areas. I wasn’t paying much attention, when all of a sudden one of my friends started to scream. Some weirdo had taken off her sandal and was sucking her toes. We all started screaming and scared him off. So, yeah, foot fetishes are gross.

    • Maria says:

      how is that related to sucking toes in a consensual situation?

      if a stranger started to cuddle you, this wouldnt mean that cuddles are gross.

  20. FassDaActor says:

    He looks possessed in the 1st picture. He’s attractive but creepy.

    As for his alleged foot fetish, he may want to think twice about dating models. Modeling is rough on the feet. Sometimes they have to wear shoes 2 or 3 sizes too small.

    She didn’t have to tell his business. pp talk too damn much!

  21. Ari says:

    He was SO good in Silver Linings playbook and while I wouldnt want him to have fun with my feet Fassy can any time.

  22. stellalovejoydiver says:

    Oh come on, this story sounds completly fabricated, I really can´t see Jennifer “I am the only one in Hollywood who eats” Lawrence being friends with a model.
    Also I think she would try to “comfort” him herself.
    Poor BCoop, he always gets the most ridiculous stories made up about him.

    I have a little bit of a nose fetish, guys with a perfect nose turn me on.

  23. Aenna says:

    It may be his mouth that creeps me out the most its almost marionette like.

    About the foot fetish thing, I was once in the getting to know you stage with a smart

    good looking guy…then he sent me videos of a little something he’d like to try.

    The video was of a woman’s feet in nylons rubbing her feet all over his face and smothering

    his face and neck with her toes.

    I ran ran so far away!

  24. Lemony says:

    1. You guys make my day, thanks for the laughs!
    2. Fassbender & Jackman can do anything they want to my feet, anytime, anywhere. I think Tom Hiddleston too. I can totally picture him as a giggly foot freak.
    3. Why does Bradley Cooper look like a woman in that photo above? Yowza.

  25. KellyinSeattle says:

    I don’t think most fetishes are deal breakers; not feet anyway. But I am getting tired of him – he’s everywhere.

  26. Emily says:

    Just like any other part of the body, if a guy is into it, that’s fine, so long as it’s not ALL he’s into. Having your body appreciated is great. Feeling like a collection of body parts is not.

  27. Noxqqivit says:

    Hey, If I could get someone else to cover the cost of my habit – weekly pedicures – he can do anything he wants with them…

  28. MGray says:

    Foot rubs I don’t have a problem with. Sucking toes? That would weird me out.

    and just for some random info on why people have foot fetishes….


  29. Ally8 says:

    He looks so pointy-nosed and eager to please… like a blue-eyed collie…

    This guy is like another Tom Cruise in all kinds of ways.

  30. GByeGirl says:

    Maybe I’m just naive, but I just don’t get gay vibes from him.

  31. Juicy Lucy says:

    I think this story is another fabrication created by someone who has it in for Bradley. As a general rule, Bradley doesn’t date models or musicians.

  32. lola says:

    I loved him in SLP and he seems to be a really nice guy !
