Suki Waterhouse dumped Bradley Cooper because ‘she was too young for him’

Suki Waterhouse

Poor Bradley Cooper. The 39-year-old double Oscar nominee can’t get lucky in love. He thought he’d found a match with his 22-year-old model girlfriend, Suki Waterhouse, but it looks like it’s over. These are photos of Suki with Cara Delevigne in London last week. They attended an opening with Karl Lagerfeld, and then the girls split off for dinner. Then they headed back to Cara’s house, which is notable because Suki made a big deal of leaving the party life for her sober man. Hanging out with the Coke Dropper doesn’t jibe with sobriety.

Bradley thought Suki was the one. He took her to the Oscars and left his mommy at home. She wore Marchesa for him. They were together for about a year. They enjoyed long walks in the park with a copy of Lolita. So romantic. Now Star says Suki has woken up and realized he’s way too old for her:

After losing to Jared Leto for Best Supporting actor at the Academy Awards on march 2, Bradley Coper is facing another devastating blow: being dumped by his girlfriend of one year, Suki Waterhouse. The actor, 39, who brought Suki as his date to the big night, is heartbroken after the British model realized she is too young for him. “Bradley wants to settle down and start a family,” reveals a close pal, who adds that Suki would rather let loose and focus on her blossoming career. The blonde beauty, 22, made her decision very clear when she was seen partying with fellow model and notorious bad birl Cara Delevigne in London on March 13, “Suki is keeping her distance,” says the source. “She thought it was better to end things now rather than let them drag on.”

[From Star, print edition, March 31, 2014]

I believe this story because it’s backed up with photo evidence of Suki hanging with her notorious old party buddy. Plus Suki IS too young for him. Bradley’s quote about not dating Jennifer Lawrence because he could “literally be her father came back to haunt him in a big way. She’s a very popular model (not sure why, but whatev), and everyone knows modelling doesn’t last forever. She doesn’t want to settle down, get married, and abandon her career. I can’t blame her for that.

    Wasn’t he only recently reading “Lolita” (lol @ the irony) to her in the park? Lol

    No one is surprised.

    • lovething says:

      He looks like the creepy uncle who insists on sitting at the kiddies table at weddings.

      How long before he is on Leos yacht I wonder.

      • Anna says:

        Omg yes!! That creepy uncle comment is spot on! The one who always tries to laugh along with the jokes and the teenagers are all texting about him like “wtf is he still doing here” meanwhile the uncle thinks everyone loves him.
        I’m sure he’ll be with Leo and Jonah sooner rather than later, we’ll probably get new photos of them this summer frolicking on a yacht with topless women.

      • Madi says:

        “the teenagers are all texting about him like “wtf is he still doing here” meanwhile the uncle thinks everyone loves him.”

        Lol. I know someone just like that and your right, he does think everyone loves him

    • lisa says:

      oh, come on. They didn’t break up – her contract was up. She was the arm candy for the award season, a la Clooney and his endless assortment of ‘girlfriends’.

    • Kate says:

      notice she wanted until “AFTER” the award seasons.

  2. V4Real says:

    What? She just woke up and took a look at her birth certificate and realized this.

    • don't kill me i'm french says:


      • me three says:

        Bradley IS too old and u know what they say…karma is a … it was obvious from the start this girl was with him for one reason. She wanted to be famous. Her career began with her relationship eith Bradley. I think its pretty funny how all the Bradley’s, Leo’s, Clooney and Baldwin’s seem to think the young things they hook up with are with them because they like them. Yeah right.

    • Sumodo1 says:

      Bearding is hard work!

      • V4Real says:

        Maybe when he asked her to be his beard she thought it was a pet name for her.

      • kimbers says:

        Bearding for brad isnt as attention getting as it used to be. Poor girl …I still have no idea who she is or what she does. I do know she didn’t do him though…

      • Liv says:

        Now I believe that she bearded for him! Seriously, it’s so obvious when they broke up now, just right after the Oscars!

    • Melody says:

      Nobody looks at their birth certificate *before* the Academy Awards!

    • MCraw says:

      Naw, it’s cuz she saw that photo of him up there.

      The fact that y’all used THAT photo of Coop!! Oh the shade, the shaaaaade! Lmaooooo totally proves Duki’s point.

      I like that typo.

    • starrywonder says:


    • lucy2 says:

      That is hilarious.

      It’s fine, we have so much in common, I…wait…I’m only 22!?! Get him away from me!!!

  3. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    She’s too young to settle down, and too young for him. Good for her for realizing it.

    • David99 says:


    • Tatjana says:

      Or she got her name out, got a couple of film roles and doesn’t need him anymore. I’m sure this was love :rolls eyes:

      • Dani2 says:

        That’s definitely a possibility. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in any ads or catwalks (not to say that she’s done absolutely zilch) but she’s always come across as someone who’s famous for being famous.

      • Amy says:

        She is famous because of him. Her partying on Cara’s backgorund won’t get her name on the press as being pulled around with Cooper will so i expect their showing up together soon and some getting serious rumours right after. Predictable is the key word here.

    • Christin says:

      Agree. I am glad she figured it out.

    • Adrien says:

      I don’t think they were even that serious to contemplate on marriage. Bradley doesn’t seem so into her. She always looks clueless.

    • pru says:

      Speaks volumes about him, when she seems like the mature one.

  4. GeeMoney says:

    I doubt seriously she dumped him… I’d like to think it was the other way around.

    Anyhoo… the age difference btw the two of them was just creepy. Can’t say I’m disappointed that this “relationship” is over.

  5. Tia says:

    Its not true that she is a very popular model. She doesnt do much editorial work at all. She is not anywehere near Cara or Kloss or jourdan dunns level.She is mostly a celebs gf and did some catwalks shows because of that celeb factor.

    • SK says:

      She just won Model of the Year in the UK (which Cara won the year before, or the one before that) and she is one of King Karl’s current muses. I’d say she’s pretty successful!

      • Gina says:

        Suki won Elle Model of the Year. I doubt that carries any weight. How can she be Karl’s muse if she’s never worked for him editorially or walked his runway show? She was just another guest at his store’s opening.

  6. freebunny says:

    Love is dead! *snif*

    • qwerty says:

      I can’t wait for an interview where he says she was way too young for him…before he finds himself a 19-year-old rebound

  7. emmie_a says:

    Was Suki a model before she dated Bradley? I always thought her association w/him was the only way she got modeling gigs bc I just don’t see her being model material.

  8. Tatjana says:

    Why is the new trend for “hip” people to look like they don’t bathe? Both Cara and Suki look dirty in the pictures.

    I get why Cara is a thing. She doesn’t look like much in paparazzi pics, but in profi photos she looks stunning. Suki always looks so generic.

    • Tatjana says:

      And now that I look at him, Bradley looks greasy, too.

    • Amy Tennant says:

      I like Cara’s look. I agree that generic is the word for Suki. She looks like a pretty girl you might see serving coffee at Starbucks, or on a bus, but not “supermodel” striking.

  9. doofus says:


    on another note, that orange suit is all kinds of superfug.

  10. Talie says:

    Yeah, even the dress she was in at the Oscars was a little too matronly — 22 is way too young to be on that train. Plus, Bradley seems like a hotbed of neuroses and issues.

  11. Allie says:

    I don’t understand her appeal. And while he was creepy for dating someone so young, she totally used him too. Especially since she just went to the oscars with him.

  12. Poppy Q says:

    I just don`t understand the appeal of this guy, every time I look at him he reminds me of the penguin in Batman returns.

  13. Kali says:

    If George can date someone (slightly) more age appropriate, there’s hope for Bradley yet. Hopefully the next girlfriend is in the 25-27 yr old age bracket.

    • Lori says:

      HE dated Renee Zellwegger for a while and she’s older than him. I think this may be the only “young one” in his dating history. But still the whole thing did creep me out and loose a little of the like for him.

  14. Applapoom says:

    Well she became famous by association. She would have just been known as Cara Delevigne’s friend (if that). I actually think Cara is quite an interesting model. Suki, I just don’t see it tbh.

  15. Clucky says:

    Up next… Johnny Depp and Amber whatshername.

  16. GlimmerBunny says:

    YES!!! Such a mismatched couple from the beginning, and I never saw any chemistry between them.

  17. Dani says:

    I don’t find Suki or Cara very attractive. Nothing to do with their bodies, but everything to do with their faces. They’re not ‘unique’ or ‘bizarre’ or ‘effortlessly stunning’ in any way shape or form. Cara has really masculine features (not a bad thing) and both of their eyebrows make me wanna go wax happy.

    • Skins says:

      I agree, I just don’t find Cara hot at all. Very dudeish(?) face, not attractive at all. Always freaks me out how these ordinary looking girls get paid fortunes to model

      • Amanda_M87 says:

        Yeah I don’t get the whole Cara thing either. To me she looks like every other model, very generic looking.

    • Jana says:

      Cara can pull good face when she tries, but I would’ve never guessed she was a model from the regular pictures of her. Suki is just a boring face.

  18. Original Tessa says:

    It was a mutually beneficial arrangement. He needed to appear straight during his Oscar runs, and she needed to raise her profile. Mission accomplished. Contract complete. Shake hands and move on.

  19. lisa2 says:

    The Oscars were what 2 weeks ago. ALL these revelations came when.. After the After Party.

    Do we really know they are broken up or are they just in different places and working.

    I think she is popular because of her name Suki.. it is catchy. I never look at her and see Model.

  20. Lucretia says:

    Ugliest Bradley Cooper picture ever! This will be an unpopular opinion, but he has an actual career and actual talent–way too good for her.

  21. Granger says:

    If my 22-year-old daughter came home and told me she was dating a 39-year-old man, I’d hunt that guy down and knock some sense into him.

  22. Gina says:

    This would be a great story if true. I don’t buy for one second she broke up with him. Her career only took off because of him. It would be incredibly stupid on her part. Especially as she’s trying to get her acting career off the ground. He got her a small role in his movie with Cameron Crowe. I’m sure there’s a small role for her in his movie with Clint Eastwood that’s about to start filming. She wouldn’t have gotten either without the Bradley connection.

    • bobbisue says:

      I don’t understand her appeal as a model AT ALL. Her forehead is so high it reminds of when women would intentionally shave back their hair like Elizabeth 1. Sorry but calling a spade a spade.

  23. Lydia says:

    Yeah, awards season is over, so is their relationship. She got to sit front row at the Oscars and got to attend some swank parties that she wouldn’t have been able to so much as wait in line for otherwise.

  24. PHD Gossip says:

    bradley looks creepy. Dyed eyebrows – 2 shades to dark. Obvious plugs – look at hairline. Even the teeth look phony.

  25. DJ says:

    I don’t believe this, mainly because it’s coming from Star magazine. I’m sure pictures of these two together will surface soon enough. And, his mom and sister were at the Oscars. I believe they sat a couple of rows behind him and Suki.

  26. lunchcoma says:

    I would have said he shaved his Oscar beard, except that this whole thing has made him look pretty terrible. Maybe it was real, at least for awhile, and she’s done with things now that she’s gotten her time on camera.

  27. bobbisue says:

    Publicity. Contract. Beard

  28. stinky says:

    Suki looks so much like Edie … its neat…
    so yo, what does Zoe have to say NOW ???

  29. Amy Tennant says:

    I dated a much older man when I was 19 or so, and I had to dump him because I was too mature for him! I realized there’s a reason guys like that date young girls.

    • lunchcoma says:

      I had that experience too, Amy. The two of us were equally mature when I was 19, and I kept telling everyone how perfect it was. By the time I was 22, I felt like I was his mother.

    • Yeah, very few dudes who date younger women date them because they’re on the same level, or really because they want someone who’s on the same level–and their girlfriend just happened to be younger.

      My mom told me about this time that she started hanging out with this guy who was in his early fifties– and looked it. She was in her late twenties–thirty at the most. She would hang out with him while she was in D.C. and they would go out, and were basically really flirty with each other–they kissed a bit, but that was about it. She really liked spending time with him, and could see it going further. One night, they were talking about something, and she said that she had graduated in the eighties–some particular year.

      She said all of a sudden the dude went real still and asked her how old she was, and she told him. Now my mom was really baby faced then, and so she looked like she was in her early twenties at best–NOT someone who had a kid. And she asked him ‘Am I too old for you?’, because he thought he had some young, early twenties girl who he could boss around. She never went out with him, after that.

      She also told me that she thinks that even though I’m 18, that some 25 year old shouldn’t be talking to me, because all they want is someone to boss around, there are plenty of girls their age to date—I just snicker to myself because my mom was the ULTIMATE cougar—my dad was 21 and she was 34 when they got married. She can’t even talk….hahaha.

      • Hiddles forever says:

        I think your mum is like me Virgilia. Baby faced ladies don’t age much. There is the same age gap difference between me and my hubby.

  30. pam says:

    She’s a famewhore – once she’d hit the brass ring – The Oscars – and the opportunity to meet so many famous and influential people at the Governor’s Ball, she didn’t need a 2-time oscar loser like Bradley Cooper. I hope he choses more carefully next time….

  31. Gina says:

    Since this is coming from Star I highly doubt it’s true and they probably didn’t break up.

  32. Felice says:

    I honestly think age difference is subjective. Beyonce and Jay-Z have a large age gap. David Tennant and his wife have a large age gap. Adele and her boyfriend have a large age gap. No one has ever commented on those three really. I think it’s because the woman is in a good place. Obviously it will get more headlines if the woman is a model or a 16 year old “country singer.” His comments on JLaw didn’t help.

  33. Milou says:

    Maybe she’ll go back to Miles Kane now <3

  34. Jess says:

    I’m not buying it yet. She dumped him? she is not a successful model despite she trys to make everyone believe so being young or not doesn’t make any difference. She is more known now thanks to him. Her name is in the press because of him. She would never step foot on the academy award and some of the exclusive party she got into recently if it wasn’t for him so her association to him is everything so is hard to believe she would dump him so soon. I also don’t buy the “i want to settle down” from Cooper either. From all his girlfriend suki would be the last he would want to marry and leo would dump him from the p*ssyposse immediately and i don’t think Bradley would want that after waiting so long to get in. This is probably a way to keep their name on the press. Next month will be engagement, then pregnancy, then break up again until he has to promote some new movie.

  35. Vampira says:

    He should have dumped her a long time ago. She was nothing but a famewhore who everyone knows is trying to break into Hollywood. She calls herself an “actress” now, even though she hasn’t done anything. She’s not even pretty enough to be a model. And what are those pathetic shoes she’s wearing??

  36. Carolina says:

    Hate to chime in because I really do not remotely care about Suki Whateverhouse, but Bradley DID take his mom (and his sister!) to the Oscar’s this year. They were seated behind him during the ceremony. Not to sound creepy, or anything. 😉

  37. Dalovelee says:

    I’m confused when has a May December romance for a model ever been a problem? There are very few supermodels and this Suki is certainly NOT one. She should have tried to have his baby and been set for life. Cooper is a two time oscar nominated actor… What wil she end up with a drugged out rocker?

  38. Naddie says:

    Never heard about her. Probably never will again, since they broke up.

  39. Ren says:

    Well, I am single Bradley! Come to mama…I love Capricorn men lol

  40. coe says:

    Bedhead, that pic of Bradley in the Orange Suit is so mean! Hahaha, he is usually much better looking than that photo lets on…

  41. Jenn says:

    What is the face he’s making in the picture?

  42. Amanda_M87 says:

    Why did they date in the first place then if age difference was an issue? I highly doubt this is the only reason why they broke up.

  43. Isadora says:

    What I find the most interesting thing about all of this: Who’s the guy in the back in the pics of Cara & Suki out and about? He looks yummy.

  44. magpie says:

    Is Jake G free? They would be perfect together.
