A representative for the 'Avatar' actress is quick to shoot down rumors that she and her 'The Words' co-star got 'hot and heavy' over two months ago at a Manhattan nightclub.
Despite rumors to the contrary, Zoe Saldana is not dating Bradley Cooper. After Star magazine came out with the report suggesting that the twosome got "hot and heavy" at a nightclub, a representative for the "Avatar" beauty issued a denial, telling E! Online, "They are not dating. They are just friends."
The hook-up speculation itself spread after Star magazine claimed to have been informed by an eyewitness that Zoe and Bradley were "acting like two high school kids going steady" at a Manhattan club. "The way she and Bradley were sharing affectionate contact, you certainly wouldn't have guessed that Zoe had a fiance at the time," so dished the source.
Accordingly, the pair who starred opposite each other in "The Words" arrived at the club at 3 A.M. on September 16. "They were in a group of about 20 people, but it was obvious from the start what was going on between Zoe and Bradley," the observer said. "They were casting sexy smiles at each other."
"Every time they were within arms reach, they made sure to give each other a sneaky little rub on the shoulder or hip. It was like they were sharing naughty little moments," the witness went on. "Bradley suddenly put his arm around Zoe's shoulders. She then put her arm around his waist, and they left all their friends behind as Bradley let her out of the club. They didn't return."
Less than a month later, Zoe announced that she and her fiance Keith Britton have called it quits after 10 years of dating. Through her representative, the 33-year-old actress said despite the separation, she and Keith will "remain committed business partners as co-founders of fashion resource MyFDB.com."
Meanwhile, 36-year-old Bradley was photographed recently with French actress Melanie Laurent. On Tuesday, November 29, the Phil Wenneck of "The Hangover" went to have lunch at Ralph, an eatery adjacent to Ralph Laurent store in Paris, with the "Inglourious Basterds" beauty, before moving to La Comedie de Champs Elysees.
