No one can deny that Bradley Cooper remains a hot commodity in Hollywood. We’re talking about an actor who has a magnetic presence in front of the camera. Just watch Burnt, American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, Limitless, The Hangover, American Sniper, The A-Team, and A Star is Born if you don’t believe us.
We’re also talking about someone who’s had more awards and nominations than most. A brief look at IMDb would reveal that Cooper has already had four Oscar nominations, three Golden Globe nominations, and three BAFTA Film Award nominations to name a few. He also won a BAFTA Film Award for Original Music from the 2018 hit A Star Is Born.
Indeed, Cooper is a movie heavyweight. And with his accomplishments, charm, and stunning looks, it is only natural that he becomes linked with various women over the years. Because of this, no one’s really sure which of these 20 women Cooper actually dated. Let’s find out.
20 Jennifer Esposito
Actress Jennifer Esposito wasn’t just a woman linked to the famous actor. In fact, at one point, the two were even married. According to People, the two became engaged just a few months after they had been spotted together back in October 2006. And just a month later in December, they tied the knot in the South of France. However, the marriage would only last four months. Later on, in her memoir, Esposito wrote, “He was funny, smart cocky, arrogant, and a master manipulator.”
19 Cameron Diaz
Rumors that Cooper was dating actress Cameron Diaz sparked in 2007 after they were spotted together during several outings. According to a report from E! News, the two were seen taking a stroll around Central Park together. Meanwhile, they had also gone to a New York Giants game. However, Cooper’s reps later said that the relationship rumors are “not true.”
18 Mélanie Laurent
Actress Mélanie Laurent became linked with Cooper in 2011 after the two were spotted taking a stroll together throughout Paris. According to a report from the Daily Mail, the two had met up at the La Comédie de Champs Elysées theatre and watched the production of “Job, Ou L'Errance De Juste.” Afterward, they reportedly went to his hotel for dinner.
17 Heather Graham
When actress Heather Graham starred in the Hangover: Part III with Cooper, it didn’t take long for rumors between the two to surface. To this day though, there hasn't been any concrete evidence that the two actors ever dated. However, Cooper did confess to having a bit of a crush on his co-star once. During the movie premiere, he told Mirror’s Dean Piper, “My hangover cure is a beautiful women... as many as I can have. I loved working with Heather. God she's gorgeous. She looks so hot tonight. Wow, okay I have to stop myself!”
16 Jennifer Aniston
It is believed that Friends alum Jennifer Aniston and Cooper briefly dated back in 2009. According to Us Weekly, this was after the two worked together on the movie He’s Just Not That into You. It is unclear when the supposed romance fizzled out between the two. Nonetheless, Cooper and Aniston have remained amicable over the years. In fact, when told of Aniston’s engagement to now-ex-husband Justin Theroux, he told the publication, “That’s awesome!”
15 Sandra Bullock
Cooper once worked with actress Sandra Bullock in the 2009 film All About Steve. Since then, it doesn’t appear that the two crossed paths again professionally. Nonetheless, this didn’t stop rumors from floating around that the two had dated. In fact, actress Mindy Kaling once pointed this out to Bullock while on the set of Ocean’s 8 as part of the “endless questions” she asked her co-star, according to RTÉ Entertainment. However, it seems that Bullock just laughed the rumor off.
14 Isabella Brewster
Sometime back in 2009, it is believed that Cooper hooked up with casting agent Isabella Brewster who also happens to be actress Jordana Brewster’s younger sister. From all appearances, it doesn’t seem things ever got serious between the two. Moreover, according to Us Weekly, Brewster eventually started dating actor This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia.
13 Renée Zellweger
Cooper and actress Renée Zellweger first met while working on the thriller Case 39. The two then started dating in 2009. However, after being together for two years, the couple decided to part ways. According to a report from the Daily Mail, things didn’t work out because of Cooper’s career. An unnamed friend explained, “If I had to pick any possible mistress it would be Brad's career. He worked really hard to get into leading man status.”
12 Olivia Wilde
Cooper and actress Olivia Wilde worked together in the 2012 drama/mystery The Words. Even before the movie’s release, however, the two were already spotted getting pretty flirty with each other. In fact, according to CBS News, Wilde and Cooper were spotted together at the after-party for a special screening of The Hangover Part II in New York. People also reported that Wilde was spotted with her hand on Cooper’s leg at one point.
11 Scarlett Johansson
No one can deny that actress Scarlett Johansson and Cooper shared incredible chemistry in the movie He’s Just Not That into You. And so, it was easy to assume that the two would hook up off-screen, especially after Johansson split from actor Ryan Reynolds. According to a report from Radar Online, the two were spotted enjoying a candlelit dinner at the Bel Air Hotel in 2012. One source also noted, “The chemistry between them was very evident and they looked totally wrapped up in each other - very cute!”
10 Jennifer Lopez
Singer and actress Jennifer Lopez was once linked to Cooper following her divorce from singer Marc Anthony in 2011. According to a report from TMZ, the two were spotted enjoying a “romantic” dinner at the restaurant Per Se at Columbus Circle in New York City. Moreover, the Mirror also claimed that the two were hanging out together around Los Angeles one weekend.
9 Zoe Saldana
Before Zoe Saldana and Cooper started working together on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, the two had also starred in the film The Words. This is also how rumors got started that the two were dating. Saldana refused to acknowledge the rumors but told The Hollywood Reporter, “We didn’t care where was the camera was. It was just like we were both part of this extensive conversation.”
8 Rachel McAdams
Actress Rachel McAdams famously starred in the movie Aloha alongside Cooper. At some point, the two were reportedly spotted hanging out together. A source told Marie Claire, “Bradley happily spent nearly two hours with Rachel, flirting and laughing over their meal. He seemed very into her … Rachel put her hand on his back and he put his on her shoulder. They were laughing and talking, and Bradley would not take his eyes off of her!”
7 Suki Waterhouse
Perhaps, one of Cooper’s most popular hookups is the one that involves model Suki Waterhouse. According to a report from the Daily, the two first met at the 2013 Elle Style Awards in London. Of the meeting, Waterhouse told Rollercoaster magazine, “We were dancing at the after-party, and he asked me if I fancied going to a club. We went to Cirque Le Soir in London – and he's a ridiculously good dancer.” They were spotted together several times since then. However, in 2015, it was confirmed that the couple called in quits.
6 Sienna Miller
Actress Sienna Miller and Cooper starred together in the 2015 drama Burnt and the 2014 Oscar-nominated film American Sniper. Several years later, the two were spotted reuniting. According to Just Jared, Miller and Cooper met up at Bar Pitti in New York City in 2018. It is unclear if the two were just hanging out or talking business.
5 Kate Hudson
Veteran actress Kate Hudson was also linked to Cooper at one point. Back in December 2017, photos emerged of the two going out one evening. To make things more interesting, Hudson also shared a ride with the actor. She sat in the front passenger seat while Cooper’s mother, Gloria, sat in the back. The following year, the two were seen again as they took their children trick-or-treating. This time, however, they were also with Hudson’s boyfriend, Danny Fujikawa.
4 Jennifer Lawrence
As you may know, Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence had worked with Cooper a bunch of times. In case you haven’t kept track, they both starred in Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, Serena, and Joy. And so, it was only a matter of time that rumors of a romance between the two would surface. However, during a 2015 interview with Howard Stern, Cooper denied this saying, “It just didn’t happen. It’s not the way we are together.”
3 Amy Schumer
Back in 2015, there was a rumor going around that Bradley Cooper was in a serious relationship with actress Amy Schumer. The two were spotted hanging out together at the Time 100 Gala and Schumer later told the audience, “I don't know how Hollywood works, but I'm pretty sure that I'm dating Bradley Cooper.” Somehow, the rumors evolved into the two becoming engaged. In response, Cooper told Access Hollywood, “I thought it was gonna be a secret but she just decided to let the cat out of the bag. I texted with her after. I was like, 'That was hilarious.'”
2 Lady Gaga
Both Lady Gaga and Cooper gave a stellar performance in the 2018 hit movie A Star is Born. Their chemistry was undeniable. And this became all the more evident when they performed together at the 2019 Academy Awards. However, Gaga immediately shut down the dating rumors when she appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
1 Laura Dern
Laura Dern is perhaps the most recent actress to be linked to Cooper. It is unclear how the rumor started. Nonetheless, Dern was quick to deny that anything was going on between the two. Speaking to Us Weekly, Dern explained, “We’re amazing friends. We’re so lucky. And we’re family. I mean, everybody’s always gonna comment about whatever seems intriguing, and he’s the greatest human and one of my best friends in the world. So I don’t blame anyone for having deep curiosity about his life ’cause he’s spectacular.”
