Last month, E! Online whispered that Cooper was taking his onscreen affair with Zoe Saldana in "The Words" to the real world. This was shortly after Saldana and her longtime boyfriend-turned-fiancé Keith Britton broke up after 11 years. Saldana's publicist denied Cooper and Saldana were anything more than friends. Meanwhile, Bradley Cooper was spotted enjoying a day out with "Beginners" star Mélanie Laurent across the Atlantic.
It's almost a new year, though, and time for a new romance, oui?
Cooper and Saldana have been spotted smooching, and at least one loose-lipped "pal" told E! Online that they're "totally dating." And, in case you're wondering, they may or may not be enjoying some fluffy snow in the Rocky Mountains over the holidays while we plebes watch the ball drop with Ryan Seacrest.
Cooper is known for his bad boy roles in "The Hangover" and its sequel, as well as flicks like "Limitless" and "The A-Team," and he's got a slew of projects lined up. He'll be strapping on some horns to play Lucifer in "Paradise Lost," and has threatened us with the possibility of a third "Hangover." Meanwhile, Zoe Saldana is an incredible action hero in her own right; she rocked as Neytiri in "Avatar," wooed Spock in "Star Trek," and led the charge in this summer's "Colombiana." Whatever 2012 brings for Cooper and Saldana, you can expect it to be sizzling hot — on screen or off.
