Bradley Cooper courts Renee Zellweger as the Jennifer Aniston rumors fizzle.
Yes, it's true: Bradley Cooper is mixing work and pleasure again. OK Magazine has reported that Renee Zellweger, 40, is moving in to snuff out of the last of the Bradley-Jennifer Aniston rumors. Renee co-stars with 34-year-old Bradley in the upcoming Case 39, and Tuesday night the two reportedly showed up for a very intimate dinner together at the Italian restaurant Antonucci on New York's Upper East Side.
And it was a date-date. Brad was cazh in jeans and sneakers, while Renee spiffed herself up in an LBD and strappy heels. Apparently they were flirtatious and touchy-feely throughout the meal, whispering in each other's ears and giggling. Renee reportedly "played with her hair a lot," one fellow diner said, and Brad kissed her hand and pulled out her chair at their romantic corner table. Is Chivalry Dead? 5 Men Discuss
They were in no rush to run off and stayed for tea. When the check came, Renee snatched it up from Brad, reportedly to "pay him back for something." We hear she's been calling herself a cougar in reference to their age difference.
The date's an interesting development in Renee's lately-rocky love life, as she recently split from husband Kenny Chesney and then MSNBC legal correspondent Dan Abrams.
Plus, we guess this confirms it: Jennifer Aniston is officially out. Rumors started circulating after she and Bradley were spotted at dinner together in May, but last week in France, Bradley publicly denied any romance with her. He called Jen a "very, very interesting woman" but stressed that they are just good friends. And while we never like to see sweet Jennifer in romantic turmoil (just where does it end for this woman?), we hope this finally puts a stop to the He's Just Not That Into You cliches.
