Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellweger’s Romantic Getaway
The new couple flies to Barcelona on a secret vacation
Well, there was a very good reason why Bradley Cooper was loudly denying that he was seeing Jennifer Aniston – he’s dating Renee Zellweger!
The two stars met while on the set of their new movie, Case 39, earlier this summer and friends say things are getting steamy. This weekend the pair jetted to Spain for a romantic getaway. The pair were spotted at the airport in Barcelona and are staying together in the city, but since then they’ve been careful to avoid being seen together and have been on solo sightseeing trips.
The lovebirds clearly got lots of practice avoiding the paparazzi while they were Stateside. “Bradley and Renee have been spending plenty of quality time together in New York at his hotel and at her house in the Hamptons,” an insider tells BettyConfidential.com. “They meet up for secret rendezvous when they can. Bradley has a nice setup in New York and enjoys staying downtown; he has an Equinox gym nearby and likes the city. They share a love of working out and even find time to spend together on the treadmills.”
Friends tell me that Renee has had a tough time dating since her annulment from Kenny Chesney, but now she is ready to take a chance on love again. “Renee needed some time off after the split with Kenny,” her pal says. “She wasn’t desperate to date right away, but she’s ready to be out there again. She’s seen a few guys here and there, but Bradley is the first one she has been this serious about.”
The insider says Renee is making an effort for Bradley: “She dresses up for dates and seems happier than she has in a long time. Renee has a really big heart and she’s just looking for a nice guy. Bradley fits the bill – he’s very kind.”
