Listen, there’s nothing funny about ice cream, guys. Ice cream is extremely serious business. What is funny, however, is the fact that Bradley Cooper is promoting ice cream – Häagen-Dazs in particular. He’s already filmed an ad for the company (seen above) and might even do a few more.
I guess if you’re going to go down the route of becoming the face of a snack food, Häagen-Dazs is a pretty good direction to go in. Their Vanilla Bean is out of this world, I have to admit. It’s also about 90,000 calories and 650 grams of fat (because yes, I have to eat the whole pint in one sitting) and really preys upon my lactose sensitivity, so I’m not sure I can support this.
Häagen-Dazs president David Clark said:
“Bradley Cooper is the first celebrity to appear in a Häagen-Dazs campaign and is a perfect match for the brand, epitomising class and style.”

Bradley Cooper‘s been living with his mom for two years, plus he’s been out of the dating game for a little while, which might make some people wonder if things aren’t going so well for him. However, it may be looking up for ole Bradley, as apparently Rachel McAdams – recently single after her split from Michael Sheen and her apparent unsuccessful wooing via text of Ryan Gosling – has been seen “flirting” with him when they had brunch together.
From Life & Style (so take it with a huuuuuge grain of salt):
Life & Style has learned that the Hangover star, 38, shared a very touchy-feely brunch with actress Rachel McAdams, 34, at Santa Monica’s Cora’s Coffee Shoppe on April 14.
“Bradley happily spent nearly two hours with Rachel, flirting and laughing over their meal,” an eyewitness says in the new issue of Life & Style, on newsstands now. “He seemed very into her.”
Strolling into the eatery with matching motorcycle helmets in hand, the couple sat down at the counter. A fellow diner dishes to Life & Style, “Rachel put her hand on his back and he put his on her shoulder. They were laughing and talking, and Bradley would not take his eyes off of her!”
Although Bradley’s rep refused to comment, the onlooker confirmed to Life & Style, “It definitely seemed like they were a couple. At one point Rachel put her hand on his hips and he was talking very close to her.”
I love that a woman can’t smile at a man or laugh at something he says without it being classified as “flirting”. Who knows – maybe she was flirting with him? But chances are there’s absolutely nothing to this story but two friends getting together for some food. Then again, if it is true, they’d kinda make a good couple. I’m with it.

Generally men who live with their mothers past the age of, say, 25 max (we are in a recession, after all) are bad news bears. That’s why Bradley Cooper – arguably rather well-to-do at this point in his career – is a bit of a conundrum. He recently admitted that he’s been living with his mother for the past two years, since his father passed away from cancer.
DETAILS: It’s probably not something you’re planning right now, particularly since your mother is living with you at the moment. How’s that working out, by the way?
Bradley Cooper: The best way I can answer that is to say we’re surviving. Both of us. Let’s face it: It’s probably not easy for her, by the way, to be living with her son. It’s life. And right now, two years after my father’s death, this is where we are. My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us. It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped. And we need each other. So here we are. But don’t get me wrong. It’s not without complications. It’s not like I live in a compound and she’s in the guesthouse. No. She’s in the next room. But here’s the thing: She’s a cool chick. We can hang, and she can roll with the punches. If that wasn’t the case, there’s no way.
Good on Bradley for having a good relationship with his mother – moms are important people in our lives and there’s no reason to grow apart just because you’re an adult. Is there anything not to like about Bradley Cooper? We’re trying to find something.

Bradley Cooper, 38, hung out with girlfriend and amateur model Suki Waterhouse, 20, in Boston while filming his latest movie. I’ll just list all the things wrong with this picture:
1. She’s 20 years old, she can’t even legally order a drink in America.
2. He said that Jennifer Lawrence was too young for him. Jennifer Lawrence is 22.
3. Amidst rumors that Taylor Swift was interested in dating him, sources revealed that, “He thinks she’s far too young for him and wants to date someone his own age, not 16-years younger because he’s ready for something serious.” Taylor Swift is 23.
4. Those pants. Bro. Those pants. With that jacket. Bro come on.
I’m betting that Ms. Lawrence must have friend-zoned him and that’s why he said the, “I’m old enough to be her father” comment. Gotta save face.
His last girlfriend, Zoe Saldana, is 34.
Enjoy the gallery (thanks Daily Mail!) of more photos of them strolling around the city, with Mr. Cooper dressed as a college student who left his nice pants at his mom’s house, with his girlfriend dressed as Oliver Twist.
Also included are some of her modeling shots, just to get you more familiar with her if you aren’t.

Damn, shit just got dark with Bradley Cooper. Despite being one of Hollywood’s most bankable actors and having been nominated for an Oscar for his work in Silver Linings Playbook, he’s not really all that phased by it because fame and fortune and all that don’t really matter when you’ve watched your own father pass away.
From GQ (via Metro):
The Silver Linings Playbook star said the idea of death haunts him and gives him confidence in equal measure after he nursed his stockbroker dad, Charles J Cooper, through his battle with lung cancer before he died at age 71 two years ago.
‘Death became very real. And very tangible. Because my father – someone who had been in my life for 36 years is just f***ing gone,’ Cooper recalls.
‘I watched him dying and I was there by his bed watching him, breathing with him, and then I saw his last breath and he was gone. I experienced the whole thing. And that was a watershed moment that I was privileged to experience. And it changed everything. Nothing has ever been the same since.’
Damn. I can’t even say anything to that. Having lost family members myself to cancer (as is unfortunately an all-too-common story, these days), I can agree that it’s a devastating situation and puts shit into perspective in life. I think I like Bradley Cooper a little more, now.

Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana got their swerve on for about a year before splitting up, though Zoe’s not taking the news so well. She’s desperate to get him back, but Bradley’s got another woman in his life steering him in the opposite direction: his mother.
From Radar Online:
Gloria Cooper, who lives with her handsome movie star son, has told Bradley, 38, not to take her back because she just isn’t so sure she’s the right girl for him. But at least one source tells Radar that Bradley isn’t listening and he is seeing Zoe!
“Gloria tried to get to know Zoe when they rekindled their romance, but she still didn’t think she was a good fit for him,” a source revealed.
“So, when Zoe and Bradley started talking to one another again, she told Bradley that their relationship failed twice already, what’s the point of going through all of that again?
“Like all moms, Gloria is very protective of her son, and gets to know his girlfriends’ well. She approved of Renee Zellweger and they are still friends to this day.
“But she just didn’t click with Zoe, found her a little difficulty to get to know, and it seemed like Zoe was perhaps a little intimidated by her.
“You do have to wonder if Bradley will ever find a girl that is perfect for him and his mom!” the source said.
I care less about their relationship than I do about knowing whether Gloria calls Bradley by his full name all the time. Zoe seems like a boring bitch, Bradley Cooper is overrated and this whole story is making me want a nap and it’s not even noon, but it’s Saturday and there’s not much news going, so take it as you will.
