According to the insider, Bradley Cooper’s back on the market. The “Hangover” star and his “The Words” costar Zoe Saldana have officially called it quits, a source confirmed to Us Weekly.
“They’re definitely not together,” the insider says of the pair, who met while filming the upcoming thriller and were first spotted kissing at a New Year’s Eve bash.
“They broke up last week,” another source agreed. “He dumped her, he just doesn’t want to be in a relationship at the moment.” So, what went wrong between the former couple? It seems like nothing…they were just better suited to be pals.
“They have a great friendship, a natural chemistry and it was for that reason their relationship was able to grow into something more,” the insider told E! Online. “But the timing was wrong, they are in different places in their lives.”
“She and Bradley weren’t super serious at all,” another friend said of the two, who were seen on set exchanging kisses. Last month Saldana spent the day with Cooper’s mother, Gloria.
The “Avatar” actress split with her longtime beau of 11 years, Keith Britton, last November. The pair revealed their engagement in June 2010 after Saldana said she felt Britton was the only person who knew ‘the real Zoe.’
She said of Britton: “I feel like the partners that stay at home, they have their lives, but they’re the ones that are living with the real you.”
“I think that they need to be recognized, every now and then, every 10 years, just come out in public – put him on the spot and just say thank you,” she continued.
“He’s a very independent soul. He understands what I do, but this is not what he fell in love with and that’s what I love.”
Cooper, meanwhile, has been linked to a bevy of beauties in the past few years, including Melanie Laurent, Jennifer Lopez, Renee Zellweger, Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Aniston.
Zellweger was firstly noticed together with Bradley kissing in 2009 but the two never officially confirmed their romance.
“I can’t say enough about her,” the Sexiest Man Alive said at the time. “I just love her. I [loved] coming to work. I love acting with her. I can learn so much from her.”
“He’s a great actor, great actor,” Zellweger said in the same interview. “I just got so excited, not believing that I was going to go to work with him.”
Four months ago Saldana’s representative was saying that the actress and Bradley Cooper “are friends who worked on a recent film called The Words, also co-starring Jeremy Irons and Olivia Wilde.”
However, an insider claimed that time: “They are totally dating.” Besides, the source added that the two was planning to go skiing in the Rocky Mountains together for the holidays.
The first time the pair first sparked rumors they had taken their friendship to the next level following a picture of the couple together at a New York nightclub.
