Bradley Cooper is one of the hottest actors right now, having managed to win over critics and worldwide audiences with his unmistakable blend of charm, talent and good looks. Taylor Swift is the latest of his victims, says a new report.
The newly single singer, who recently split with One Direction beau Harry Styles, has set her doe eyes on Cooper but her efforts have come to no fruition so far, Radar Online reports.
Taylor spoke to her good friend Jennifer Lawrence who, in turn, is good friends with Bradley, to arrange a meeting between the two, convinced that she’ll win him over in a matter of minutes.
Sadly, insiders say, Cooper did not bite: he’s only too aware of her reputation as a man eater and he won’t fall into her trap.
“Bradley has absolutely no intention of getting together with Taylor. First of all, her reputation precedes her. Bradley is very wary of dating someone who is a bit of a serial dater like Taylor,” an insider reveals for Radar.
Then, there’s the issue of the age gap, which he thinks would make them unlikely lovers.
“He thinks she’s far too young for him and wants to date someone his own age, not 16-years younger because he’s ready for something serious. It was a little awkward for Bradley,” the same unnamed tipster dishes.
“Jennifer came to him and told him that Taylor was interested in getting together. He had to politely decline, knowing full well that Jennifer and Taylor are friends. It was an ambitious move from Taylor, but she’s going to have fixate on someone else as Bradley’s just not that into her,” the source further says.
As we also reported earlier this week, Bradley also had to fend off rumors that he was romantically involved with Jennifer, who split from boyfriend Nicholas Hoult before the Golden Globes this weekend.
