Bradley Cooper & Suki Waterhouse think ‘food is the best aphrodisiac’: gross?

Bradley Cooper

For some reason, I am highly amused by this photo of Bradley Cooper on his motorcycle in Brentwood last week. Oh who am I kidding — everything about BCoop makes me giggle like a schoolgirl. We haven’t talked about my favorite serial killer in quite some time notwithstanding his permtastic performance in the American Hustle trailer. Now we have a new story from this week’s issue of the Enquirer about his Earth-shattering, amazing romance with British model of the hour Suki Waterhouse. We heard awhile back that Bradley had been ignoring Suki’s calls and texts, but he must have taken her back in time for an appearance at Wimbledon last month. Never mind that Bradley seemed much more enthusiastic to get bromantic with Gerard Butler while Suki sat there like an unwanted visitor.

I guess this is the point when I should admit that I’m skeptical of this relationship. All that really needs to be added for the relationship to be believable is for the tabloids to say that Bradley’s mom can’t stand Suki, and they have done so, but now we’re also getting a bonus about Bradley and Suki’s hot kitchen lovin.’ So gross:

Bradley Cooper has learned the way to his sweetie’s heart is through her stomach!

The Hangover hunk is prepping for a movie role by taking cooking lessons from “Hell’s Kitchen” chef Gordon Ramsay, and sources say it’s heating up his romance with British model Suki Waterhouse.

“Bradley has become a whiz in the kitchen,” said a close friend. “Not even a year ago, he could barely boil and egg. But after intensive lessons with Gordon and studying classic French techniques, Bradley is whipping up complicated dishes like coq au vin and beef bourguignon.

“He plans elaborate date nights with expensive French wine, appetizers of clams casino and entreses of stuffed lobster tail and fresh pastas made from scratch. Suki is a big foodie, and when Bradley goes to work in the kitchen, she just melts.”

In the upcoming film Chef, the 38-year-old actor plays a drug-addicted former chef who gets clean and tries to relaunch his career. The Oscar-nominated Silver Linings Playbook star was previously married to “Blue Bloods” beauty Jennifer Esposito. He’s since dated Renee Zellweger, and hooked up with 21-year-old Suki in February.

As the Enquirer has reported, Cooper’s overprotective mom Gloria fears Suki is using her son to jump-start a Hollywood career. But the relationship still seems to be cooking on all burners.

“Bradley is raving to friends that food is the best aphrodisiac,” said the source. “And he loves showing off his new skills to an adoring girlfriend.”

[From Enquirer, print edition, August 26, 2013]

One detail from this story is itching at me, which is that Bradley has been presented as a former bumbling idiot in the kitchen … when he obviously wasn’t two years ago while cooking pasta with an Esquire journo. But I wouldn’t be surprised if his people planted this story in the Enquirer anyway, just to keep the dream alive between BCoop and Suki.

    Come. On. Seriously? Is anyone buying this, the most blatant cases of closet/showmances?! Just makes me skin crawl at this point, I feel sorry for him.

    • Liv says:

      I really hope you’re right because the alternative would be that he’s an hypocrite and an idiot.

      This girl is way too young for him, especially when you consider his words that he could be Jennifer Lawrence’s father and therefore couldn’t hook up with her!

    • Turtle Dove says:

      @ Londongal-

      I’m with you on this one. BCoop gets a lot of rage-y comments on his posts and people talking about his life, etc. Pre-Suki, his posts were ghost threads. He definitely took a page out of Leo’s book. Nothing like a barely 20-something girlfriend to keep you press relevant.

    • Shanie says:

      Its totally unbelievable. I think people are generally too fixated on figuring out closetted celebrities but with Bradley, I believe it. It was the Suki hook up that pushed me over the edge. Dating a barely legal girl cements hetero status better than any sex tape. If there was an iota of chemistry I would have moved on. But a young girl, no chemistry coming off of the clear showmance with Zoe Saldana??? Fake.

      • Lil says:

        The gay ones are mostly dating mascular women like Bradley with Renee zelweger, Gerry Butler with Jessica Biel, Daniel Craig and Rachel weisz … so they don’t have to much loss.

      • Liv says:

        Wait a minute, you call Rachel Weisz muscular?! Don’t get it. Besides Daniel Craig is definitely not gay.

  2. Anna says:

    I got excited about all that food talk. As far as aphrodisiacs go, a good meal with a proper drink is probably up there for me.

    • Amelia says:

      Hot cookies fresh out the oven are my weakness.
      If a guy gave me a batch of those, there’s a distinct chance he could probably get me to rob a bank for him.
      Hmm. I’d better keep away from Doubletrees.

    • Anna says:

      I might get shot for this, but I love properly seared foie gras. Also a home-made creme brulee would do it for me.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      My mom is from the south–Tennessee–so that’s where the majority of my taste in food comes. I like baking more than cooking, so I’ve steadily worked through a lot of old southern cakes. The Lane Cake still gets me, as I can’t make frosting for shit.

      I started watching GCB (which is freaking hilarious), so I’m entertaining thoughts of having a nice house, with really old china (I love old dishes), having big southern dinners every week with as much sangria and margaritas as you can wash down. My mom let me have my first margarita recently and it was really good…generally I don’t like the taste of alcohol. She likes to drink crown&7 and coke, but I don’t like that.

      What’s some of your favorite wine? I want to get a leg up on alcohol before I can legally drink it.

    • Amelia says:

      Hehe, I tried to make creme brulee once . . .
      Didn’t end particularly well!
      I’m more of a baker too, Virgilia, I just tend to gravitate towards cakes.

    • Anna says:

      Sparkling rose. I am not a wine person – give me a 6-pack of bud light or a dry vodka martini, then we’ll talk.

    • Amelia says:

      Good choice with the martini. Girl after my own heart :)

  3. blue marie says:

    You know what’s gross? Bradley in that orange suit.. Psycho Killer, qu’est que c’est..

  4. Kate says:

    God, in that second picture she looks like an awkward 13yr old. Big age gaps don’t bother me, if the Emu wants to date 20 yr old’s cool, but jeez, find one who looks like a grown woman and not a little girl, there’s plenty out there.

    • break says:

      She looks like his daughter.
      I feel the same way about Depp and Heard. Amber looks older than Suki, but Johnny is older than Bradley.
      Hollywood has gone pedo!

    • Vesta says:

      I’m bothered too. They are not underage, but they sure look like teenagers – how very convenient!
      I cannot respect any of those nasty old farts with their pedo-vibe tastes.

      • Becky1 says:

        It’s disturbing. She looks really young. If he really is gay and wants to have a beard why not pick a beard closer to his own age (particularly after making that comment about Jennifer Lawrence being too young for him)?

        When I was in my early 20′s I easily passed for a teenager (I was skinny and small chested with an innocent looking face). It used to creep me out when I was hit on by much older guys (which for me at that time was 35 and up). I still find it creepy.

  5. ClaireB says:

    Why does everything have to sound like a fairytale ? He learned to cook. Good.

  6. Trek Girl says:

    No, I don’t think that’s gross. It’s true for a lot of people, and he certainly isn’t the first one to say it.

  7. Addie says:

    I’m sorry but the pic of him in the orange suit looks like he just rubbed his face in McDonald’s French fry oil lol

  8. Scarlett says:

    Prosecco is the best – it’s like champagne but from Italy and much cheaper. Try it with peach juice – a bellini. Yum :o )

    • Claire says:

      Agree! Prosecco is the best drink in the world.

      Bradley’s hair does bug me. It’s like Brad Pitt’s – the hairline is too perfect. He does always come across really well though and he can definately work a suit. I don’t get this Suki relationship though

  9. Nina says:

    Did anyone see the line about French wine with dinner? I thought Bradley was sober.

  10. anon33 says:

    I’m sorry, but as someone who has self-studied cooking for about 20 years, I call BS on the claim that it only took a year for him to go from “barely boiling an egg” to “whipping up fresh pastas.” Even with Gordon Ramsay’s help.
    *sideeye*

  11. Mar says:

    He is so gay

  12. Mrs.Darcy says:

    His weave/implants or whatever it is drives me nuts. How can anyone look at this guy w/a straight face? so to speak.

  13. loie says:

    He looks like he’s humping his motorcycle in the first photo. And got caught by the pap!

  14. ZigZagZoey says:

    I just have to say it’s been SO nice NOT seeing him for a while!
    YUCK YUCK YUCK I’m sorry, but he just seems like he would be a gigantic ahole.

  15. Lila says:

    Weird… I thought I had read before that he likes to cook and that if he wasn’t an actor he might have been a chef.

    I like Bradley but this romance is totally creepy!

    • Tammy says:

      The story in the Enquirer is either a lie or Coop is a liar and hypocrite. First, he is supposedly sober (although he hasn’t looked sober since his relationship with Renee) & he apparently can cook. Just doesn’t have the time to do so. He has said he orders all his meals from an organic company. And lastly this “romance” just doesn’t seem to be real.

  16. Payal says:

    They make me uncomfortable, because its so fake and mainly because she looks underage like a child for crying out loud!

  17. TheOriginalWaffle says:

    This is annoying because it’s purely hype for the upcoming movie.

    We loved his TV series _Kitchen Confidential_, though, so I’ll probably go see it anyway.

  18. kim says:

    Unless she has a cock he ain’t touching her

    Don’t get it twisted

    more fakeships for young thangs and secrets to keep for Bradley. It’s getting bald brittney sad…

  19. Sara says:

    Didn’t he already play that role? In “Kitchen Confidential?” Is this a movie version of Anthony Bourdain? Must IMDB now…

  20. Christina says:

    I have no idea if B.Coops relationship with Suki is fake or not…but I do think this “article” is bullcrap. Bradley has spoken several times in interviews about his love of cooking. His mother’s side of the family is Italian. He was taught to cook by his Italian grandmother. It is HIGHLY unlikely that his team would plant this idiotic story, especially since he is very vocal about his love of food and cooking. He also played a character based on Anthony Bourdain in Kitchen Confidential and if anyone took the time to watch it instead of bashing Bradley for no apparent reason, they would be able to tell he knows his way around a kitchen. The Enquirer makes most things up, hasn’t anyone figured that out yet? I agree that Suki looks very young and it is a little creepy, but other than that Bradley is not doing anything tons of other famous men have done and still do. Why is ever male celebrity always called out as being gay everytime they get photographed in public with a girlfriend? It is kind of ridiculous. Also, people who think B.Coop looks like a killer or a douchebag, that is fine…his looks are not for your taste..but to decide he is an a-hole is not fair. Watch his interviews, watch his Inside The Actors Studio, read about how much he loves his dog and his family. Read anything anyone who had worked with him says. All nice things. He is not Sack from Wedding Crashers or Phil from The Hangover in real life….

    • Lila says:

      I agree, in the interviews I’ve seen and read of him he does seem like a nice person and pretty grounded despite his fame. And I always thought it was cool that he went out with women around his own age, unlike some other actors. So I was kind of disappointed when we first saw these pictures of him with Suki. I just hope he doesn’t become one of those “modelizer” types like Leo D.

  21. Sasha says:

    Pic 1: this guy has so much money yet he can’t buy style- his dress is SO awkward, his bike is an awful looking crotchety rocket and he looks like a teen on that bike that’s trying to fit in
    Pic 2 he’s getting a woman’s number
    Pic 3 and 4- awkward awkward
    This guy is seriously a marionette, a Pinocchio if you will who’s trying to get his own “cred” but fallsSO short
    If gives off the worst vibe and just looks like such a douche, simply seeing him my ladybits freeze dry themselves
