Bradley Cooper is a “master manipulator”, apparently

Bradley Cooper was married to Blue Bloods actress Jennifer Esposito for a single year – 2005 to 2006 – but apparently things didn’t end very well there. While she didn’t name names, she discussed her marriage with the man believed to be Cooper in her new book, Jennifer’s Way: My Journey with Celiac Disease – What Doctors Don’t Tell You and How You Can Learn to Live Again (WHY IS THAT TITLE SO LONG?), calling it “an entire marching band of red flags”. Ouch.

“He was funny, smart, cocky, arrogant, and a master manipulator. I didn’t necessarily find him that attractive, but I figured that I could enjoy his sense of humor and nonsense for a while,” the actress writes of an ex in her new book. “We had fun, but he also had a mean, cold side. His personality could flip on a dime.”

Damn, that’s cold. However, Esposito doesn’t appreciate us jumping to conclusions and wants you to pay attention to the matter at hand: celiac disease, apparently. Here’s her statement:

“This book is about my journey with celiac disease and only that,” Esposito says in a statement. “To refer to anything other than the subject at hand or to make this book about anything else is an insult to me and this disease that plagues so many.”

I love that she wrote a whole book about going gluten-free. I mean, I know celiac disease can be really difficult until you get a diagnosis and all that, but really? Also, if your relationships weren’t pertinent to your gluten intolerance, why the hell did you write about them?

In any case, I don’t know much about Bradley Cooper, so maybe he is a total asshole. Who can say? Anyone heard any stories about him either way?
