Bradley Cooper Dating French Actress Melanie Laurent?

Well, we know he can speak the language.

Bradley Cooper, better known under his official title, Sexiest Man Alive, has moved on to his next rumored girlfriend. It seems like just a few weeks ago, he was linked to Jennifer Lopez. Probably because that actually was just a few weeks ago.

Bradley and French actress Melanie Laurent, who starred in the Tarantino flick, Inglorious Basterds, were photographed taking in a movie together in Paris. It appeared as though they were with a group of friends originally, and then after the movie, they took off together.

Laurent was once linked to married man, Ewan McGregor. The two had a rumored affair last year, when the two were photographed looking a little too cozy. Specifically, they were strolling around Paris holding hands, with Melanie leaning her head on Ewan's shoulder. “Melanie was snuggling up to Ewan,” an observer said at the time. “They were very tender with each other.”

Not exactly something I would want my husband of 15 years doing with another chick, except that Ewan and his wife reportedly have an open relationship.

The French actress is also a friend of Cooper's ex, Renee Zellweger. Renee and Melanie posed for photos together at the Miu Miu Pret a Porter show as part of the Paris Womenswear Fashion Week back in 2009.

While Laurent was filming Inglorious Basterds, which also stars Brad Pitt, a witness on set had this to say about her:

“Melanie is shameless. She flirted with Brad constantly during filming and was extremely touchy-feely. He didn’t give in to her – but it looks like Ewan is hardly pushing her away!”

Well, at least she's moved on to a dude who's actually single. Melanie and Bradley don't have any upcoming projects together. At least that's what IMDB told me. So it looks like this wasn't one of those "we were just hanging out to get to know each other before we started working" dates.

In his Sexiest Man Alive interview with People magazine, Cooper insisted he was single: "I'm a single 36-year-old male," he says. "I don't see myself as a ladies' man. But I love women. Do you know what I'm saying?" That…you…love women?

But as far as guys go, Bradley definitely has a type:

"Elvis was the sexiest thing about the '50s. He's the dude. You can't get sexier than Elvis…I love that People dressed sharp then…Guys were trying to take care of themselves and look slick. Now People are such slobs."
