Report: Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk announce their reconciliation.
Although the actor and the supermodel split in 2019, there are speculations of their reconciliation simmered over the past few months.
A flashback to the past. We weren’t prepared for the number of A-listers Bradley Cooper has dated. Cooper has had one marriage and one romantic relationship throughout his twenty years in Hollywood. We thought we’d take a look back at each of Cooper’s famous ex-wives, from J-Lo to Renée Zellweger, in honour of his Hollywood dating history. But first, let’s examine the romances that were rumoured but never materialised. (Yup, we’re referring to Gaga Gate in 2019).
Cooper co-starred with Lady Gaga in the A Star Is Born remake in October 2018, which he also directed. Eight Oscar nominations were given to the movie, including acting honours for Cooper and Gaga. Fans questioned whether the two, in relationships at the time, were more than simply co-stars during award season, especially after their eye-fucking on stage for nearly four minutes during their “Shallow” performance at the Oscars. During a Jimmy Kimmel Live! interview Gaga claimed that the performance was only acting at the time. She remarked at the time, “I mean, we made a love story.
“I was an actor and a performer, so we wanted everyone to think we were in love. And we wanted Oscar viewers to experience that affection. We wanted it to be seen through the camera’s viewfinder and on every television being used to watch it. And we put in a lot of effort, working nonstop for days. Everything was planned out; everything was staged like a performance.
Fans also questioned Cooper’s relationship status with co-star Lady Gaga. Cooper was pictured with Jennifer Garner and his daughter, Lea De Seine, who was 3 years old at the time, at a Malibu beach in August 2020, one year after his divorce from Irina Shayk (more on her later). The two appeared together in the television programme Alias in the 2000s, and the pictures had viewers questioning if they were dating. They were only buddies once more. At the time, a source informed Us Weekly that “they are pals and have been for ever.”
Now let us look into Bradley Cooper’s relationship history.
Jennifer Esposito (2006)
Cooper began dating actress Esposito in February 2016, who is most known for her work in Crash and Taxi movies. In October 2006, they officially announced their engagement, and by December of that same year, they were wed in a low-key ceremony in the South of France. But only four months into their union, Esposito filed for divorce, ending their marriage of less than a year. She mentioned insurmountable disagreements. Jennifer Esposito has submitted a divorce petition. At this time, she requests that you respect her privacy, according to a statement from Esposito’s representative. The statement from Cooper’s representative read, “The divorce was mutual, and they have been apart for quite some time.”
Esposito stated that one of her ex-boyfriends was a “master manipulator” in her 2014 novel Jennifer’s Way: My Journey with Celiac Disease — What Doctors Don’t Tell You and How You Can Learn to Live Again. She described him as “funny, brilliant, cocky, arrogant, and a superb manipulator.” I didn’t think he was very attractive, but I decided I could tolerate his humour and foolishness for a time. We had a good time together, but he also had a cruel, cold side. His character could change at any time.
Renée Zellweger (2009 – 2011)
After meeting in 2006 while working on the movie Case 39, Zellweger and Cooper began dating in 2009. The movie came out in 2010. Cooper revealed to Entertainment Tonight in 2010 that he “liked coming to work and performing with her” because he could “learn so much from her” even though the couple kept their relationship a secret.
Several media publications confirmed that Zellweger and Cooper had broken up in February 2011 after dating for two years and attending a pre-Oscars party separately. At the time, a source claimed to The Daily Mail that Cooper’s acting profession was the reason for the couple’s breakup. “Brad’s career would be my choice for a mistress if I had to choose. The source claimed he put a lot of effort into being a leading guy.
Jennifer Lopez (2011)
After Lopez’s 2011 divorce from her husband, Marc Anthony, TMZ alleged that the two had gone on a date in September of that year. The two reportedly went on a date to the Per Se restaurant in Columbus Circle, New York City, according to the website at the time. The two were reportedly captured on camera in Cooper’s car in Los Angeles, according to The Mirror in 2011. Cooper and Lopez may have dated for a while, but it didn’t seem like anything more than a passing fancy.
Zoe Saldana From 2011 – 2013
After meeting at the production of the 2012 movie The Words, Cooper and Saldana began dating near the end of 2011. They started dating shortly after Saldana broke off her engagement to Keith Britton. Regarding her on-screen connection with Cooper at the time, Saldana said, “Bradley is a really dedicated and open professional.”
When you can strike that balance with an actor, as opposed to one who simply shows up prepared and says, “Don’t screw up my light,” and “This line is my close-up,” it is incredibly effective. Wherever the camera was, we didn’t care, she remarked. It appeared as though we were having a long talk together.
Saldana and Cooper ended their relationship in March 2012 after four months. At the time, a source informed E! News, “They split up last week.” He didn’t want to be in a relationship, so he dumped her. Because of their strong connection and chemistry, their relationship was able to develop into something more. However, the timing was off because they were at different points in their lives. According to a source who spoke to Radar Online, Cooper’s mother Gloria persuaded him to “get her back,” and the two reconnected in September 2012.
Suki Waterhouse From 2013 – 2015
After being seen out on a date in Boston, Cooper and Waterhouse were initially mentioned in March 2013. Cooper brought Waterhouse along as his date to the 2014 SAG Awards even though they kept their relationship a secret. In February 2014, she asked him to accompany her to a White House dinner. In 2013, she admitted to Elle UK, “I don’t talk about my partner because it’s boring.” “But I’ll tell you we met at the Style Awards. It might be better for me to clarify that I’m not one of those girls constantly talking about her guys. I’m certain that everything I say will sound strange.
In March 2015, Cooper and Waterhouse divorced. Several months before their breakup, the pair was spotted at Nobu Malibu, where a source claimed they “didn’t look friendly” during their supper.
Irina Shayk (2015 – 2019)
In the spring of 2015, Cooper and Shayk began dating. Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper, a daughter, was born to the couple in 2017. In a 2019 interview with Glamour UK, Shayk discussed why she keeps her romance so private. “Many of my friends are open about their personal lives on social media, such as Instagram. She remarked at the time, “I admire it, and I think it’s great, but I think it’s all about personal choice. “I’ve simply determined that my personal life will be quiet because my job demands me to be out in public. Since it’s something for you and your family, that’s why it’s called personal, and I’m satisfied with it.
Cooper and Shayk divorced in June 2019. At the time, Cooper and Shayk’s breakup was verified by People, who also said they intended to split custody of their daughter. In January 2020, Shayk discussed her breakup with Cooper in an interview with British Vogue. “I think in all healthy partnerships, you bring your best and your worst – it’s just the nature of a human being,” she said. “Two wonderful individuals don’t necessarily form a happy partnership.”
