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.”
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.
