Want to make sure your movie reaches #1 at the box office? Just break up with Renee Zellweger.
After Bradley Cooper split from Zellweger on Friday, his movie, Limitless reeled in $19 million in its opening weekend, beating out The Lincoln Lawyer and the sci-fi comedy Paul.
Ok, so those two movies aren't exactly Inception and Black Swan, but still, Limitless did surprisingly well, considering its tagline could've been written by a five year-old: "What if a pill made you rich and powerful?"
So it looks like Cooper’s doing pretty well post-breakup, not that I can imagine him in bed crying, eating ice cream, and asking his friends to suck on lemons so he can remember what Zellweger looked like.
Interesting how the breakup conveniently occurred the Friday before the movie was released, instead of when it should have occurred, two years ago.
