Suki Waterhouse pursued Bradley Cooper.
The 21-year-old model has been dating the Hangover 3 actor since meeting at the Elle Style Awards in London in February and insiders say the British beauty instigated their romance.
"Suki asked Harvey Weinstein to introduce her to Bradley because she said she needed to meet him. She wanted him and went after him. Now they're together all the time," a source said.
Although the relationship is casual right now, Suki is hoping the 38-year-old actor will soon want it to get serious, though she is currently content just to be with him. "She understands his packed schedule which he appreciates. Bradley really has a thing for her right now. She would like something more serious but knows what he's about and accepts that. She's just happy to be with him for now, she has such a crush," the insider added.
Bradley Cooper reads negative things about him on the internet to stay grounded. The Place Beyond the Pines star doesn't need to be online long before the things he reads about himself extinguish any ego he may be getting about being a movie star.
"Maybe if you start feeling a little too big for your britches, hop on the internet and take a look at some message boards for five seconds. It's not something I do often, but if you do, It'll take you right back down. Oh, my, God! First of all, let's be honest: It's incredibly narcissistic to do that and masochistic. You want to feel s***ty about yourself. Boom - it's easy. To me this business [acting] is the ultimate humbling experience. You're constantly dealing with rejection. My journey has not been people kissing my ass."
Bradley also likes his agent to be as realist and brutal with him as necessary. The 38-year-old actor - who was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive in 2011 - insists he can only become better at his craft if he listens to criticism.
Bradley Cooper has flown Suki Waterhouse out to Boston.
The actor - who split from Zoe Saldana for the second time last year - and the blonde beauty were spotted enjoying a day out in the Massachusetts city on Monday after he paid to fly her out to the set of his new film, an as-yet untitled David O. Russell/Abscam project.
Bradley, 38, met the British model, who is 18 years his junior, at the ELLE Style Awards in London last month and although the pair are taking things slowly, he is said to "really" like her. "It's new but they're hanging out. He's really into her," a source said.
Bradley - whose previously girlfriends include Renee Zellweger, Jennifer Aniston and Olivia Wilde - became smitten with Suki after their first meeting and has text her "every day" since. Bradley recently admitted he is on the lookout for a new girlfriend and would like to find a woman who is a "free spirit" who can make his heart race.
Bradley Cooper has invited Suki Waterhouse to visit him in Los Angeles.
The 38-year-old Silver Linings Playbook star - who split from actress Zoe Saldana for the second time late last year - has reportedly asked the 20-year-old British model to fly over for a second date with him after he became smitten with her when they met at the Elle Style Awards in London last month.
"Bradley has been texting Suki every day since they met. He wants her to come to Los Angeles and visit him; he's intrigued by her and she's very interested in him. Suki had so much fun with Bradley when he was in the UK and wants to hang out with him again in the States. They've pencilled in a date for when she can come over and they can spend some time together. Bradley wanted to arrange something before he starts promoting The Hangover Part III, which will take up a lot of his time. Until then, they will just have to bide their time," a source said.
Jennifer Lawrence is trying to find Bradley Cooper a girlfriend.
The 22-year-old actress has forged a strong friendship with the 38-year-old actor - who has previously dated stars including Renee Zellweger and Zoe Saldana - since they worked together on Silver Linings Playbook and she is doing her best to help him settle down with a nice woman. "I feel like all I've been doing lately is setting him up," she said.
However, she is finding her efforts exhausting and has decided to give Bradley a shortlist of her friends, including pictures, so he can pick the ones he likes. "I was like, 'You know what? I'm going to save time, I'm going to get you a booklet of pictures of my friends and you just go through and pick them out. Because this is getting exhausting for me," she joked to MTV.
The Oscar-winning beauty and Bradley's relationship has been the subject of much scrutiny, but she insists there is nothing romantic between them: "He's more like my brother."
No matter how good they look together, it seems as if Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana couldn't fix their relationship issues the second time around.
Despite having reconnected back in September, sources claim that the pair - who co-starred in last year's The Words - spent New Year's Eve apart. While Cooper was roaming Europe, Saldana remained in the States with friends and family.
Apparently, Saldana isn't too broken-hearted over the split. "She was hanging out with Miami Heat stars Dwyane Wade and his girlfriend Gabrielle Union, and Chris Bosh with wife Adrienne Bosh. She looked happy and was dancing quite a bit. She was smiling all the time," a source said.
The split comes after Cooper's mother recently suggested to him that he marry Saldana.

Bradley Cooper's mother wants him to settle down.
The Silver Linings Playbook actor is involved in an on/off relationship with his The Words co-star Zoe Saldana and Bradley's mother Gloria has been spending time with the 34-year-old actress recently to discover if she is ready for marriage with Bradley, 37.
"She's very protective over Bradley and likes to get to know his girlfriends. She became good friends with Renee [Zellweger] and his former wife Jennifer [Esposito] and it's important to him that his mom gets on well with whoever he dates. Bradley recently told Gloria that he is very serious about Zoe, so she spent Thanksgiving with the pair of them. Gloria loves Zoe, but she wants to know what her intentions are with the relationship. She knows Zoe isn't getting any younger and is hoping that if she is the one that they will settle down soon. Ideally, she wants a grandchild so the pressure is on for Bradley to put a ring on it," a source said.
Bradley Cooper used to be jealous of Leonardo DiCaprio.
The Silver Linings Playbook actor had a memorable encounter with the Hollywood A-lister when he worked as a hotel doorman and felt "worlds apart" from the star, who is now a close showbiz pal. "I worked as a doorman all through grad school. I remember taking Leonardo DiCaprio up to his room, and I was in the elevator with him and, like, seven of his friends. It was around the time of Titanic. And I remember this guy who looked like a kid, even though we were about the same age, he looked like a little boy. I remember thinking how I was three feet away from this guy, and we were worlds apart," Bradley confessed.
Dita Von Teese was reportedly snubbed by Bradley Cooper. The burlesque dancer was seen making eyes at The Hangover actor at Farfalla restaurant in Los Angeles and tried to buy a drink for the handsome star, but he remained immune to her advances and left without saying goodbye.
"Bradley completely snubbed Dita when she made a beeline for him. She was desperate to get his attention, so she asked the waitress to go over to his table and ask him what he wanted to drink. Bradley told the waitress he's on a health kick at the moment and said he was fine. After that, Dita was looking over at him, fluttering her eyelids and wanted him to join her and her friend. But Bradley just wasn't that into her, he ignored her eye contact and just looked down at his phone. He left before she did and didn't even acknowledge her on the way out of the restaurant," an onlooker said.
Bradley Cooper's romance with Zoe Saldana is back on. The Hangover actor was spotted leaving Zoe's Hollywood home in the early hours of Saturday morning.
The on-off couple met up again later yesterday for a cosy cinema date at the Arclight Dome Theater on Sunset Boulevard, where they watched the controversial new Scientology-inspired movie The Master.
The former co-stars - whose relationship seemed awkward at the premiere of The Words earlier in September - appear to have rekindled their casual romance after breaking up in March. A source close to the Avatar actress said at the time, "They're definitely not together. She and Bradley weren't super-serious at all."
