J.Lo and Bradley Cooper seen on dinner date

Is Jennifer Lopez dating Bradley Cooper? The pair were spotted at tony New York restaurant Per Se on Saturday night, having a “romantic” dinner, according to TMZ sources — and it was just the two of them, entourage-free.

J.Lo is, of course, fresh off her separation from third husband Marc Anthony, the father of her twins. The “Hangover” actor, meanwhile, ended a long-term romance with Renee Zellweger some time ago.

But the buzz that there was something romantic going on may have been just wishful thinking on onlookers’ parts. A source tells People magazine that the dinner date was purely business-related and the two are “in discussions regarding a project.”

Hmmm. Who goes out to a fancy dinner on Saturday night to talk about work?

 

Second marriage?

Eva Longoria was put on the spot by “Access Hollywood” when they asked her about remarrying. The former wife of NBA player Tony Parker is now hot and heavy with Eduardo Cruz, Penelope’s little brother. So does she intend to tie the knot again?

“I don’t know,” said the “Desperate Housewives” star. “I’m not opposed to it, I just don’t really give it a lot of thought right now.”

The actress has been having a steamy romance with Spanish actor Eduardo, 10 years her junior, but after ending her marriage to Tony, she’s evidently in no rush to walk down the aisle for a second time.

Eva went on to note, “Ask a woman after divorce if she’s gonna get married, you won’t get an honest answer.”

Actually, we think that’s a pretty honest answer in and of itself.

 

‘Friends’ no more?

New drama-tastic story about Jennifer Aniston’s romance with Justin Theroux! This one sounds pretty bogus to us, but hey, you never know: The actor-screenwriter reportedly vehemently disapproves of his lady love’s friendship with caustic comedian Chelsea Handler.

“Justin thinks Chelsea is crass and a terrible influence on Jen,” a source allegedly tells OK! “He’s made it clear he doesn’t want to spend time with Chelsea.”

But supposedly, this just makes the former “Friends” star feel more loyal to her friend! (After all, Chelsea’s the one who includes a blistering critique of Angelina Jolie in her stand-up monologue.)

“No one tells her what to do,” the source declares. “She wants to hang out with Chelsea just to show Justin he can’t control her. She wants to make that clear before things go any further.”

Hmmm. We’re going to rate the credibility of this story as somewhere below the report that Jen and Justin are renting a love nest together … and above the tale that they’re ready to have a baby together.
