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.
Once upon a time, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling did a little movie called The Notebook together and won the hearts of romantics everywhere as they fell in love on screen… and off! Alas, their love was not to be long term, which is a shame because they make a damn good looking couple and Eva Mendes is kinda weird, but that’s besides the point. Rachel and Ryan have remained friends since their split, and now that Rachel has broken up with Michael Sheen, she’s apparently got Ryan back on her speed dial and has been hitting him up at all hours, much to Eva’s chagrin.
From Now (via DigitalSpy):
“Rachel’s always kept in touch with Ryan, but now that she’s split with Michael, she’s been calling him and using him as a shoulder to cry on.
“It hasn’t gone down very well with Eva, to say the least, but Ryan wants to be there as a friend for his ex.”
I mean, I get it, I guess – if my partner’s ex was calling non-stop, I’d have to say something – or a few choice somethings – to bring an end to it. On the other hand, these are celebrities so I can throw my morality out the window when I say: Rachel + Ryan 4 Ever! Bring back Rychel!
Rachel McAdams aka “Regina George Forever And Ever Even Though She’s Done Other Popular Good Stuff Too” and Michael Sheen AKA “The Guy Who Played Tony Blair Once But Did Other Stuff Too” are breaking up. What is with all these breakups? Oh well, now we can all be sad and lonely together. There were rumors that in April of last year that they were engaged. Sad.
The couple met on the set of Woody Allen‘s Midnight In Paris, a film in which they apparently were both in. I remember The lovely Ms. McAdams, but I don’t remember Mr. Not Charlie Sheen at all. Sorry, bro. They’ve been together since 2010. It sounds like their relationship succumbed to the same thing that killed the Jason Segel & Michelle Williams union: long distance.
In January, McAdams told The Sunday Telegraph’s Stella magazine (via US Weekly),
Michael and I never spend more than three weeks apart — we rack up a lot of air miles — but you have to be quite adaptable in this business whether you are in a relationship or not.
Damn, that sucks.
P.S. That photo isn’t a still from a movie. That’s just them saying goodbye at the airport. Right in the feels.
