Anyone who dates Jennifer Lopez is going to get the paparazzi treatment; but when Lopez steps out with a famous dude, all hell breaks loose. Chinchilla furs come alive and dangerously spiky-heeled Louboutins fall from the sky as the world seeks an answer to the all-encompassing question: what is going on with J-LO and [fill in the blank]?
In this case, the fill-in-the-blank is Bradley Cooper. The wolf-faced actor was photographed in Los Angeles on Saturday behind the wheel of a car while a woman in the passenger side shielded her face. Paparazzos told People.com, which published the photos exclusively, that the woman was none other than Lopez. (Code Red! Code Red!)
The dating rumors initially began when Cooper and Lopez dined together at Per Se in New York City last month; it was reportedly a "business dinner" but now the one-on-one is being pegged as romantical in nature.
"After their date in New York, Bradley and Jennifer stayed in touch," says a Lopez insider.
"She does like his attention, and it makes her feel good that he seems so into her. She has a fun time with Bradley and he makes her laugh. She likes him."
Meanwhile, a source tells TMZ the pair are "casually dating." Reps for Cooper and Lopez did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
What should we call them: Clopez? Coop-Lo? Beauty and the Wolf-Man?
