Bradley Cooper: It's Easier to Date Famous People

Bradley Cooper’s been linked to a lot of high-profile celebrities. Renee Zellweger, Olivia Wilde, Jennifer Lopez…the list goes on.

And it might have something to do with the fact that he says it’s “easier” to date someone who’s used to being in the spotlight.. Bradley told Heat magazine:

“Connection and chemistry are amazing things and if the other person is used to being in the media, it makes things easier."

It also makes the gossip that much juicier. “Bradley Cooper Banging Olivia Wilde” is just so much more interesting than reading “Bradley Cooper Banging Random Red Lobster Waitress”.

And despite the fact that he’s recently rumored to be dating everyone short of Betty White, Cooper insists that he doesn’t have time to date.

“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,” Cooper explains. "It's really exciting, but it doesn't leave much time for a relationship.”

No time for a relationship, sure. But I’m guessing casual sex isn’t out of the question.

His latest rumored romance is actress/phone hacking victim Scarlett Johansson. The two were spotted looking more than friendly at a New York City nightclub, Provocateur.

An eyewitness who saw the couple inside the club said:

“Scarlett and Bradley arrived with a small group of friends, including model Cheyenne Tozzi, around 2am. While Bradley was flirty with Cheyenne initially, after some drinks he turned his attention to Scarlett. The duo was hand in hand and more than flirty by the end of the night!"

Cooper and Scarlett costarred in He’s Just Not That Into You back in 2009.

Another source added:

"They were here with a group of friends and ordered champagne. The group was having a good time together."

If all these reports are true, Scarlett’s been with Bradley Cooper, Justin Timberlake and Kieran Culkin, all in one week. Nice. If there’s one thing that can be said about having your naked photos leaked, it’s that it’ll sure get you a date.

Bradley’s next upcoming project is Paradise Lost, where he’ll star with Camilla Belle and Casey Affleck. The movie is based on the seventeenth century John Milton poem and will begin production early next year.
