Jennifer Lawrence Is Bradley Cooper’s Yenta
Since Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper can’t date each other — mostly because they’ve denied an involvement so many times that it’s become an inside joke — Lawrence has resorted to setting up her ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ co-star with all her friends.
This didn’t work out so well the first time JLaw tried it, with one of her model gal pals being scared off by Cooper’s alleged foot fetish. But since a lot of women could easily overlook a quirk like that (and would happily date Cooper as long as he doesn’t have a bunch of bodies buried in the basement), Jen’s still on the case.
“My publicist told me that a magazine was going to say I was having a thing with either [The Hunger Games' co-star] Sam Claflin or Bradley Cooper, and I got to choose. And I chose Bradley Cooper because I love Sam’s fiancee so much,” Lawrence said, making light of her ability to pick her fake boyfriends. “Sam is so sweet. So sweet that he’s almost not hot anymore.”
Since Cooper’s split from Zoe Saldana, Lawrence (who herself recently broke up with boyfriend Nicholas Hoult) said she feels like all she’s been doing is setting him up. “I was like, ‘You know what? I’m gonna save time and just get you a booklet with pictures of my friends. You just go through and pick them out, because this is getting exhausting.’”
Then the Oscar-winning actress went back to talking about the real love of her life: food. Which is precisely why we think we could be best friends.
Bonding over some french fries and then being set up with Bradley Cooper?
We’ll just take our number and wait over here.
