Actor and former “Sexiest Man Alive” Bradley Cooper is reportedly dating British model Suki Waterhouse (and no, we do not mean the "True Blood" character Sookie Stackhouse).
Photographers in Boston, Mass. snapped the pair hanging out on Monday this week while Cooper worked on his newest film. Cooper, 38, apparently flew the young Waterhouse, 20, out from London to visit him on the set of David O. Russell’s as-yet-untitled FBI thriller, which co-stars Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, Louis C.K., and Jennifer Lawrence. This project reunites Russell with Cooper and Lawrence, who made the award-winning “Silver Linings Playbook.”
So much for not liking younger women – Cooper previously rebuffed rumours of a romance between him and 22-year-old Lawrence by protesting, "I could be her father." What does that say about his current rumoured fling, who is two years younger than the Oscar-winning Lawrence?
London-born Waterhouse has been working as a model since she was 16 years old, and is now a favourite of Vogue magazine and London fashion week, and a former face of Marks & Spencer lingerie. She’s good friends with other famous faces in fashion, like Georgia Jagger, Clara Paget, and Cara Delevigne, but she wasn’t always such a girly-girl.
“I was a real tomboy, I wore this T-shirt all the time that read 'Bad Girls That Never Die', and these massive trainers. I was totally 'duded' out. I used to do karate, then I started kick-boxing -- which I still dom actually,” Waterhouse told Vogue in 2011, and now describes her style as “floaty, girly but a bit of boyish too.”
This month alone, she’s involved in an art exhibition entitled “I'll Be Your Mirror” at a gallery in London, as well as another exhibit about British ballgowns through the ages at The Victoria and Albert Museum. But in addition to modeling, Waterhouse works as a photographer, musician, personal style icon, and actress – she appeared in the 2012 thriller “Pusher” with Richard Coyle and Agyness Deyn.
"I play the girlfriend of this notorious drug-pusher," she told Vogue. "I get him into all kinds of trouble -- I'm not a very good girlfriend. Acting is something I'm interested in and I'll keep going to auditions, but modelling is my main job."
Waterhouse has been previously linked to rockers Luke Pritchard (frontman of The Kooks) and Miles Kane (of The Last Shadow Puppets). Cooper has a long list of former flames in Hollywood, including ex-wife Jennifer Esposito, Renee Zellweger, Olivia Wilde, and most recently, “Avatar” star Zoe Saldana.
Waterhouse and Cooper first set the rumour mill going when they were spotted leaving the Elle Style Awards in London together last month, where Cooper won the award for best actor in “Silver Linings Playbook.” The couple traded their formalwear for a much more casual look this week in Boston, but it seems like that award win has a silver lining for Cooper and Waterhouse that is lasting past awards season.
