Bradley Cooper could be headed for a hangover after his three month tryst recently ended with leggy "Colombiana" actress, Zoe Saldana. The couple costarred in the thriller, "Words," and was first spotted canoodling on New Year's Eve. This likely was a rebound relationship for Saldana since, prior to being with Cooper, she was in a decade-long relationship which led to an engagement and ended soon after.

Love Links

Cooper hasn't had any better luck in love. In 2006, he married and divorced actress Jennifer Esposito within a four month period. Since then, People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" has been linked to several high profile actresses like, Cameron Diaz, Renee Zellweger, Jennifer Aniston, Olivia Wilde and Jennifer Lopez.

His "Sexiest" title is no surprise considering the Pennsylvania native started his acting career with a stint on "Sex and the City" in 1999. He has been in high demand ever since but his love life has not fared as well.

A Divorce and Two Blondes

His first headline-making relationship was in 2005 when he dated his "Kitchen Confidential" costar, model Jaime King. King finally settled down in 2007 with director Kyle Newman. They were married at the same sight of their engagement, Greystone Park and Manor in Beverly Hills.

The same year King was married, and five months after Cooper's divorce from Esposito, he was spotted at a football game with Cameron Diaz. Although the "A-Team" actor said, "We're good friends," about his relationship with Diaz, they were seen several times around New York. They finally called it quits in 2008.

Two More Flaxen-Haired Ladies

Jennifer Aniston was the next blonde on Cooper's list, when he took her on a dinner date in New York in the Summer of 2009. Aniston was quickly traded in for Cooper's long term relationship with Renee Zellweger. Although Cooper's clean-cut style was a departure from Zellweger's former flame, rocker Jack White, the actors made it work for two years. As Cooper reached leading man status in "Limitless," his relationship with his "Case 39" costar ended. Cooper took up with Olivia Wilde while Zellweger was linked to the notoriously loose-lipped, John Mayer.

Brunette Phase

Wilde was soon slashed out of Cooper's life and a recently divorced Jennifer Lopez snuck in. He had a New York dinner with the "American Idol" judge in September 2011. A month later, in Los Angeles, paparazzi pictures surfaced of Cooper in his car with someone who appeared to be Lopez.

Two months later, Cooper was in Paris with "Inglorious Basterds" actress, Melanie Laurent. Lopez meanwhile went cougar with her 24-year-old beau, backup dancer Casper Smart. Laurent took in Paris with Cooper and spent some time back at his hotel. That friendship didn't last long, since Cooper rang in the New Year with his now ex-girlfriend Saldana.
