Relationship conspiracy theorists across the nation just felt their nips get hard, because Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are officially signed on to do another movie together. It’s even with David O. Russell, the same director who got such tasty romantical crazies out of them in Silver Linings Playbook.
Jennifer has reportedly signed on to play Christian Bale‘s wife in the project, which was formerly titled American Bullshit. That name has now been scrapped, but the plot remains the same — it centers around the FBI sting operation in the 1970s known as Abscam, which began as a trafficking case but went on to target corruption in United States, resulting in the removal from office of multiple congressmen. The film also stars Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and maybe Louis C.K., and there’s a lot of talk that Jennifer is too young to play Christian’s wife, but if I’m being totally honest, I don’t give a shit about any of that. All I care about is that J-Law and B-Coop will be reunited on the big screen. I don’t even care if they don’t play love interests. I’ll still be able to sit in the theater stewing happily in the sparks of chemistry leaping between them as I ignore the entire plot of the movie and reshape it into a sequel to Silver Linings Playbook. I may even bring ear plugs to make my job easier.
But honestly, this news might as well have been created solely for me and my ilk, you guys. There’s nothing that bloggers like better than hiding from the sun in their hobbit holes and speculating on celebrity relationships, and as any properly rabid fan knows, the more a celebrity denies a rumor, THE MORE REAL IT IS. Bradley and Jennifer have both denied the rumor of them hooking up so many times that they’ve essentially convinced me they’re married, and I won’t be told differently. And now they’re doing another film together. They’re like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and this is their Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Except neither of them are married, they actually definitely won’t get together, and the movie hopefully won’t suck. Other than that the situations are identical.
