Look at this lady. No, really look at her. Oh my god, that fierce bitch is Dita Von Teese, and she is flawless. I can’t even wrap my head around how gorgeous she is: she is too beautiful for the human mind to comprehend beyond “nnngh.” I know she’s done some questionable things (marrying Marilyn Manson, namely, but she fixed that), but I honestly didn’t think that one single person on this planet would be able to turn down this lady if they were ever given the precious, precious chance to be in her presence.
Dita Von Teese has claimed she is enjoying the single life, but she recently got blanked when she tried to chat-up Hollywood hunk Bradley Cooper in a Los Angeles restaurant, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
The star pair found themselves in trendy hotspot — Italian eaterie Farfalla in Los Feliz — at the same time when an eyewitness spied Dita, 40, licking her lips in the general direction of The Hangover star.
However, the burlesque dancer’s attempts at inviting Bradley, 37, over to her table floundered after she tried to send a drink his way. He refused her offer and left the restaurant without even saying goodbye! ( In September, Cooper revealed he’s been sober for 8 years.)
“Bradley completely snubbed Dita when she made a beeline for him,” an onlooker told RadarOnline.com.
“She was desperate to get his attention, so she asked the waitress to go over to his table and ask him what he wanted to drink. Bradley told the waitress he’s on a health kick at the moment and said he was fine.
“After that, Dita was looking over at him, fluttering her eyelids and wanted him to join her and her friend. But Bradley just wasn’t that into her, he ignored her eye contact and just looked down at his phone. He left before she did and didn’t even acknowledge her on the way out of the restaurant. She looked gutted.
“It really was an awkward moment for Dita, I’m sure a lot of men wouldn’t turn her down,” the source concluded.
There have been rumors that Bradley is back with his ex-girlfriend, Zoe Saldana, so I’m hoping that’s the case. I’m hoping that Bradley is just super faithful and in love with her, and that he wasn’t just some single dude with no attachments who turned down Dita Von Teese. Because my mind can’t handle that, it really can’t.

As you can imagine, Bradley Cooper is doing a theater production on ‘The Elephant Man’, and as you can see from the photo above, the transformation is really kind of … well, it’s creepy, to say the least. From the Times-Union:
His John Merrick – a man with hideous deformities who goes from being a sideshow freak to the toast of the town – succeeds with the right amount of intensity to maintain his contorted posture and the right amount of charm to reveal Merrick’s humor and humanity.
Cooper’s transformation into Merrick is one of the strongest moments of theatricality in the production. Cooper stands onstage dressed only in shorts while a screen shows photographs of the actual John Merrick, and Merrick’s caretaker Dr. Treves (ably played by Alessandro Nivola) describes the images. As Treves details Merrick’s deformities, Cooper undergoes a stunning transformation by twisting his fingers together, lifting his arm, turning in a leg, thrusting out a hip and sliding his lips to one side of his face.
So really, in short, the only thing you need to know is that no. Bradley Cooper looks nothing like the Elephant Man, John (official name Joseph) Merrick. Because this is what John Merrick looked like, if you didn’t know:
No. Bradley Cooper looks nothing like that, thankfully for him. But one thing is for certain—he looks super, super creepy just the way he is, you know? Yikes.

The reigning Sexiest Man Alive and Zoe Saldana are dating and they’re extremely happy about it, sources exclusively tell E! News. And we hear that the pair are just now starting to tell family and friends that they’re an item.
… A rep for Saldana, who recently filmed The Words with—and got to practice kissing—Cooper, denied that the costars were anything more than friends a month ago, after their appearance together at a Manhattan nightclub prompted romantic speculation. But as recently as last week, a source tells E! News, they were telling friends that they had plans to go skiing in the Rockies together over the holidays. “They are totally dating,” the source says.
Reps for both stars did not immediately return requests for comment.

I know, I know, it’s been weeks since People magazine named Bradley Cooper the “sexiest man alive,” and likewise, it’s been weeks since everyone, myself included, threw a fit that Ryan Gosling didn’t receive that title. And believe me, if I could, I would just bury that under the rug. I would just chalk the whole thing up to another one of life’s many injustices, and I wouldn’t have given it another thought.
But Bradley Cooper just said that Ryan Gosling deserved it, and really, am I supposed to leave that alone?
“There was such a backlash to when they announced it and Ryan Gosling, who I love and I just did a movie with him – he’s the greatest ,” said Cooper, who claimed a friend sent him a link to a website comparing paparazzi photographs of the two actors who were both in Paris last week.
“When I say friend, I mean me, alone in my room, looking at the computer,” Cooper joked. “And it’s like him walking around and he literally looks like he’s in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway. And there’s ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never really comes out of his house, and when he does, you’re like, ‘Maybe you should just stay in. We don’t know what he does in there!’ So it’s been interesting.”
Cooper admits he’s still coming to terms with all the attention, joking that the “Sexiest” title is “the worst.”
“I’m finally at an age – I’m 36 years old – where I really don’t care about anything like that anymore, which is a wonderful thing and then this happened and then I started to realize just how not sexy I am,” he said.
In fact, the new title has made Cooper rethink his day-to-day activities.
“I have a lot of moments where [I’m] walking out and I’ll open up the door [and think to myself], ‘I could do that a lot sexier,’ ” he laughed.
Do you like Bradley Cooper more after that? Because I sure do.*
*Ryan Gosling in 2012!

According to People, yes, Bradley Cooper is the sexiest man alive. Is that bizarre to anyone else? I’m not saying that Bradley Cooper isn’t an attractive individual, because he is, but in a goofy way or an adorable way or an “aww, yeah, he’s cute, but he’s my gay BFF/just like my brother, it’s weird to think of him like that!” way.
Another thing: how in the world did Ryan Gosling not get this cover? How has 2011 been anything but The Year of the Gosling? And sure, he did make the list, but for Ryan Gosling not to get the title of Sexiest Man Alive is appalling to me. I’ll never be able to understand People‘s reasoning, and it’s going to take me a long time to come to terms with their careless, callous choice.
Who do you think should have won the honor of being 2011′s Sexiest Man Alive?

Can you guess the lucky lady riding shotgun in Brad‘s car? Why it’s none other than Jennifer Lopez. Yup. Jennifer Lopez. I know she’s covering her face quite well in this photo (which is courtesy of People, so thanks, guys), but eyewitnesses claim that it was Jennifer who emerged from the vehicle and Jennifer who probably went right home with Brad, since there was probably no way they were headed out for dinner with her hair looking that crazy.
I know when my hair gets like that, the only place I go is my living room with a blanket and a pillow to watch Paranormal Witness.
