Like all celebrities, Bradley Cooper has been known to eat at some swanky restaurants. And like all male sex symbols, he’s usually spotted with an equally attractive female, usually also famous in her own right.
In May of this year he was spotted with flame Zoe Saldana at New York’s Empellón Cocina in the East Village, and the next month he was seen dining with Saldana’s family at Boom in the city’s SoHo neighborhood.
In October 2012, Cooper was spotted at Los Angeles’ trendy Italian restaurant Farfalla. According to Radar Online, burlesque dancer Dita Von Teese attempted to send a drink over to his table, which he didn’t accept due to his sobriety. He then left without even acknowledging her, causing quite a stir in the tabloids.
Cooper is reportedly good friends with Limitless and Silver Linings Playbook co-star Robert De Niro, and they were spotted together in June at restaurant Smith & Mills on New York City’s North Moore Street.
Back in September 2011, Cooper was seen dining at New York’s super-expensive Per Se, run by famed chef Thomas Keller, with Jennifer Lopez. His rep downplayed any rumors of a relationship between the two, saying that it was just a "business meeting."
While filming The Hangover 3 in California's Mojave Desert, Cooper stopped into Domingo’s Mexican and Seafood Restaurant in nearby Tehachapi for a bite. He was even kind enough to pose for photos with other (presumably star-struck) diners.
A-list actresses just seem to flock to Cooper. Earlier this year he was also seen having a romantic dinner with Scarlett Johansson at Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant in Los Angeles’ Hotel Bel-Air, and the two reportedly were planning a getaway to Mexico, according to The Sun.
It might appear as if Cooper spends his evenings hopping from one restaurant to another, but when he’s preparing for a role, getting in shape becomes a priority. While training for his role in Limitless, for example, he reportedly drank a lot of protein shakes and plenty of water, and avoided all refined foods and sugars for at least six weeks. Getting that jacked takes a lot of work!
