Bradley Cooper is Too Busy to Date

In an effort to get us to shut up about his personal life, Bradley Cooper is telling us his career makes him too busy to date.

The thing is, heart surgeons are too busy. Bradley Cooper makes movies about people being hungover. I’m not saying I don’t enjoy them, I’m just saying, I’m sure Todd Phillips will understand if he has a love life.

But Bradley tells Closer magazine: “I’m filming 'The Place Beyond The Pines' at the moment with Ryan Gosling in New York, so that's taking up a lot of my time. It’s really exciting, but it doesn’t leave much time for a relationship.”

The key word here being “relationship.” I’m sure taking advantage of his hotness and banging a ton of Croupies (Bradley Crooper groupies) is pretty time consuming, too.

If you haven’t already joined in on the gossip, Bradley was seen having dinner with Jennifer Lopez last week, and according to reports, the dinner was a “romantic” one between just the two of them.

Of course, it could’ve been a project they were meeting about—you really can’t tell in Hollywood. We’re very liberated and progressive. Instead of handshakes, we greet by cupping each other’s genitals. At least that’s what a “producer” told me when I got here.

A source said Lopez did feel a little “ding ding ding…if you know what I mean.”

I actually have no idea what that means. A bell? Was it like a speed dating thing? Who knows. I’ll just talk about Bradley Cooper’s movie now. The Place Beyond the Pines is about a motorcycle stunt rider that finds himself caught up in a life of crime in order to provide for his family. I’m imagining Breaking Bad meets Ghost Rider. Rose Byrne and Eva Mendes also star in the movie, which might explain why Ryan Gosling/Eva Mendes dating rumors have been swirling lately. That, and they’re also having sex with each other.

Back to Cooper, he apparently loves being in the press, according to a source. Which is nice, because we love talking about him.

“He knows how to play the game,” an insider said.

Next month, Cooper is reportedly set to start filming the Silver Linings Playbook, a movie about the Philadelphia Eagles.
