Actor, director, and producer, Bradley Cooper, has had a whirlwind success in his career and has made headlines many times. Despite his achievements, the actor has experienced a few heartbreaks in his romantic life. Here is a look at what the actor has been up to with his dating life.


Bradley Cooper has returned to directing after making his directorial debut in 2018 with "A Star Is Born." This time, he is directing the Netflix movie "Maestro" and will star as Leonard Bernstein, the American conductor, composer, author, pianist, music educator, and humanitarian.

The upcoming Netflix biographical, which is expected to debut in 2023, also stars Maya Hawke, Matt Bomer, Jeremy Strong, Carey Mulligan, and Sarah Silverman.

In May 2022, Netflix released first-look images of "Maestro," which showed Cooper, a nine-time Oscar nominee, as an aging Bernstein, and Mulligan, as the late composer's wife, Felicia Montealegre.

In recent photos released, Cooper and Bomer were dressed up in business attire on set and were seen kissing. However, there is no information on Bomer's role in the movie.

Cooper's dating history has been as exciting as his career. In October 2006, he was engaged to Jennifer Esposito, and they married in December 2006. However, their marriage was short-lived as Esposito filed for divorce in May 2007.

In the fall of 2007, Cooper and "The Other Woman" actress Cameron Diaz started hanging out together and even went on double dates at football games with their friends.

By 2010, Copper and Academy Award-winning actress Renée Zellweger reportedly lived together for a year. Even though they never acknowledged their relationship, they were photographed on dinner dates, family visits, and vacations before their relationship ended in March 2011.

In June 2011, newly divorced actress Olivia Wilde was reportedly in Cooper's life and was at the New York premiere of his movie "The Hangover II."

Cooper and actress, singer, and dancer, Jennifer Lopez made the news in October 2011 after her divorce from singer Marc Anthony. After their relationship ended, Cooper briefly dated French actress Melanie Laurent before meeting actress Zoe Saldana.

Saldana and Cooper broke up twice during their relationship because of conflicting schedules. However, their second split in 2013 was the final one even though they still have an excellent professional relationship.


For two years, from March 2013, Cooper dated British actress and model Suki Waterhouse, who was 17 years younger than him. In March 2015, there were rumors that Cooper was dating Russian model Irina Shayk after they took a Broadway show together.

However, their relationship lasted only four years as they split in June 2019. While dating, Shayk and Cooper welcomed a daughter Lea De Seine but kept the news a secret for one month.



Cooper and Shayk confirmed in November 2016 that they were expecting a child and welcomed their daughter on March 21, 2017. The actor, who wants his daughter to feel loved, said:

"Having a child and having a family of my own — which is a miracle and something I've always dreamt of — has opened me up, even more, I guess, to the day, and to be present."

He also revealed that having a daughter made him open up to the world of children's music and has helped him embrace his childlike self without fear of judgment. Despite having split, their focus is always on their daughter, and they are supportive of each other as they co-parent.

Cooper and Esposito were quiet about their relationship and married in a relatively low-key affair in late December 2006 in the South of France. However, it was not until January 2017 that People Magazine confirmed it.

Esposito filed for divorce four months into their marriage as she cited irreconcilable differences in her filing. Cooper's rep said the couple had separated for a while, and their divorce decision was mutual.
