Things between Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Aniston didn’t pan out, but that’s no reason for acrimony. Upon hearing of Aniston’s engagement to Justin Theroux, Cooper responded with genuine happiness for his ex and earnest congratulations.
Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Aniston dated briefly back in the summer of 2009, first spotted together grabbing dinner at New York City’s Il Cantinori in June. Shortly after, Cooper apparently chose 43-year-old actress Renee Zellweger over Aniston, disappointing the Friends alumnus.
“She wanted to turn her date with Cooper into something,” said a source at the time.
But that’s all in the past now, reports Us Weekly.
At the Los Angeles premiere of Hit and Run on August 14, Cooper was asked by reporters about Aniston’s recent engagement to Justin Theroux. Apparently it was news to Cooper, but he was happy for his former flame nonetheless.
“That’s awesome!” Cooper said 0f the news.
Although neither Aniston nor Theroux have said word one to the media concerning their engagement, reps for both stars have confirmed it in their stead. According to MSN, Theroux’s rep said on August 12 that “Justin Theroux had an amazing birthday Friday, receiving an extraordinary gift when his girlfriend, Jennifer Aniston, accepted his proposal of marriage.”
It now appears that Aniston’s love-losing-streak may be at an end. Since her divorce from Brad Pitt in 2005, Aniston has been linked to the likes of Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, and John Mayer, but all the relationships reportedly ended quickly. She has been dating Theroux for 18 months, reports the Daily Mail.
Congrats to Aniston and Theroux on their engagement, and props to Cooper for handling the news with class!
