Zoe Saldana Throws Shade At Bradley Cooper — ‘There’s A Reason You’re An Ex’

Zoe Saldana looking up GIFI can’t actually date Bradley Cooper myself, so one of my next favorite things is imagining what it must be like for other people to date him. I’m imagining pretty boring in the case of Suki Waterhouse, given that we suspect that’s a fakelationship, but it sounds like things weren’t much better for Zoe Saldana. At least according to her.

Zoe is on the cover of Marie Claire for their August 2014 issue, and in the interview she was asked about her previous relationships. She’s currently married to artist Marco Perego, but she’s had some high-profile relationships in the past, including an eleven-year one with businessman Keith Britton, and a romance lasting a few months with none other than our friend Bradley. And in case you were wondering whether she’s stayed friends with any of those people, the answer is a firm ‘no’.

“I have been in relationships where a man has disrespected me, and I don’t need to be friends with that man anymore. I don’t want to be the one going, ‘I’m cool, because I’m friends with all my exes.’ There’s a reason why you’re called an ex. I crossed you off my list. Moving on. You cross a line, you need to know that you’re going to walk this earth knowing that there’s an individual who has no respect for you.”

Holy crap. Strong words, especially given that Bradley is the last person she dated before getting married. When asked what she learned about relationships in the five month interim between her breakup with Bradley and her secret wedding to Marco last June, she said:

“Not to settle. If you’re not happy with a person, leave. And wait until you find that one person who makes you feel good about yourself every single day and is not expecting you to change, but to grow.”

I honestly don’t think it’s reading into things too much here to say that she’s at least in part talking about Bradley! So what could’ve happened between them to make her throw that kind of shade his way? Give us some more clues, Zoe! I’m on the edge of my seat over here!

      Bradley Cooper is from my hometown and everything I’ve ever heard about him indicates that he is and always has been an entitled upper-class rich kid playboy. This is not a guy who respects women – I realized that when I heard him talk about going to the ‘Ping Pong Club’ for the Hangover 3 movie. No man who respects, cares about, or actually likes women as human beings would go there and participate like he did. And every woman he dates ultimately ends up leaving him.

      Ooof! Press for their new movie is going to be awkward.

    • Gary

      There is also talk on Blind Gossip about how he allegedly drinks quite a bit and hooks up with random escorts “in the desert” (Palm Springs, I assume?).

        I saw that!

      Give me a break. She knew darn well that she was going to be his beard. If she is angry then perhaps he reneged on whatever was promised to her before their contract was fully up. Maybe as part of the deal, she was supposed to get a good movie role and he didn’t keep his end of the deal to make that happen. The worst kept secret in NY and Los Angeles is that Bradley Cooper has no romantic interest in women. It’s sad in 2014 that he still feels the need to stay in the closet, but I guess people in middle America still haven’t figured him out so he’s staying in.

      Make no mistake, the entertainment magazines like People Magazine and shows like Entertainment Tonight all know about Bradley but they’ll never out him. They all protect these celebrities because it’s all about having access to them and they don’t want to get cut off from that. Why do you think these same media outlets still report how “lovey dovey” John Travolta is with Kelly Preston when they are on the red carpet together? They know it’s a fraud but they play along anyway because they don’t want to lose access to these celebrities.
