Bradley Cooper: I’m Not Dating Jennifer Aniston
The Hangover hunk is griping to pals about the rumors that he’s dating the Friends star
Bradley Cooper is getting a little irritated by all the press reports that he is dating Jennifer Aniston. Friends of the blue-eyed Hangover star tell me he is definitely not involved with Brad Pitt’s ex-wife and has been venting to them about being linked to her.
“Bradley and Jen went out for one dinner together in New York in June. They were caught on camera leaving the restaurant, but that was their one and only date,” his pal says. “Bradley is a nice guy and he and Jen are acquaintances. He thought they could chat over dinner and they did.”
Contrary to a story in the National Enquirer that claimed Brad and Jen met at L2 Lounge in Washington D.C. on July 18, the friend says, “They did not meet up there for a rendezvous and Bradley doesn’t have any more plans to meet up with Jennifer.”
My sources claim that it is actually Jen’s people that are spreading the rumors about her dating Bradley Cooper and they’ve even been linking Jen to her current co-star in The Bounty, Gerard Butler.
“The secrets are being leaked by Jen’s team,” the insider says. “Bradley is totally not cool with it and wants his personal life to be left alone so that fans will focus on his work. He is making every effort to put a stop to the Jennifer Aniston rumors.”
A further sign of just how much he wants to avoid being linked to Jen: He even made his publicist release a statement denying that he and Jen met up in the capital.
To quote Alicia Silverstone in Clueless, that was way harsh.
