Bradley Cooper's Romantic History: Everything to Know
Inside Bradley Cooper's star-studded dating history: Jennifer Esposito, Renee Zellweger, Irina Shayk, and more. The Oscar-nominated actor is a doting father of one!
A well-recognized actor and filmmaker, Bradley Cooper is one of those Hollywood stars, who has managed to garner global stardom. Other than his stellar movie credits, which include Silver Linings Playbooks, A Star Is Born, The Hangover, and Limitless, Cooper is known and loved for impeccably attractive looks; he was People's sexiest man alive in 2011.
A few more aspects that make Brad an absolute favorite are- Cooper's dark history prior to getting a breakthrough and his forthright attitude about the subject, his endearingly close bond with his mother, Gloria Campano, and Bradley's drama-free personal life. Sure, the Oscar-nominated actor has dated many throughout his career, but all of his exes have nothing but nice things to say about the actor.
Bradley Cooper's Romantic History!
Not many fans know this and we'll go as far as assuming not even some of Brad's Mini Coopers- a nickname for Cooper's fans, that the Oscar-nominated actor was married once. It was early in his career and since Bradley never walked down the aisle after that one time, Cooper seemingly came off as the actor who is reluctant to delve into married life. NCIS actress Jennifer Esposito was the first high-profile actress to date the actor and also the first, albeit only one, to exchange vows with him.
The Hangover actor and Esposito got engaged in October 2006 and tied the knot within two months in December. But the couple's marriage didn't even last a year as Esposito filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences," after four months in May 2007. "It was something that happened," Cooper said about their whirlwind marriage and fast divorce. He added, "the good thing is, we both realize it; sometimes you just realize it."
Cooper's divorce from Jennifer was followed by the actor being linked to Cameron Diaz in late 2007. The hot pair never admitted to their brief romance, giving fans the impression that it was just a fling. Bradley should have famously dated the fellow A-lister Renee Zellweger, but instead, it was a low-profile affair that rarely made it to headlines. The couple dated for almost two years and even lived together during the period and called it quits in 2011.
Cooper and the Oscar-winning actress fell in love while filming for their 2009 horror film Case 39. As per insiders, Renee was the one who broke things off because Bradley was too career-focused to take their relationship seriously. Bradley was linked with Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Lopez in 2011 before starting another, somewhat long-term thing with actress Zoe Saldana. The couple dated on and off from 2012 to 2012 while filming for The Words. Cooper dated English actress Suki Waterhouse from March 2013 to March 2015.
Bradley's most famous relationship, to date, was his rapport with Russian model Irina Shayk. Cooper started dating Shayk in early 2015 and welcomed a daughter, Lea, with the model in March 2017. The duo's relationship came down amid Cooper's affair with his A Star Is Born co-star Lady Gaga in 2019. "First of all, social media, quite frankly, is the toilet of the internet. And what it has done to pop culture is abysmal," Gaga said while vehemently denying the rumors. The Silver Linings Playbook actor briefly dated actress Dianna Agron in early 2022.
Who Is Bradley Cooper Dating?
It's not official yet, but considering Cooper's long history of unofficial, unconfirmed romances, it might take the actor a little time before he goes around flaunting his new flame at public events. That being said, the Oscar nominee's latest flame outstands his previous girlfriends as she doesn't belong to the showbiz world. For the past few months, the Wedding Crashers actor is said to be dating political staffer Huma Abedin, a former aide to Hilary Clinton.
It's certainly still too early to assume anything about the new love birds, but as per insiders, the two have more than one thing in common. Sources say Bradley and Huma continue to bond over their interest in politics and human rights. The source says that the duo seems to be a perfect match as both put their professions before their love life. The Limitless actor and the former Clinton aide were set up by their mutual friend, Vogue's editor Anna Wintour.
Cooper and his new lady love have been spotted together on multiple occasions, but despite the media's growing interest in them, the two refuse to comment on their relationship. Huma was married to politician Anthony Weiner from 2010 to 2017 and shares a son with her ex-husband.
