A-list actor Bradley Cooper and esteemed Oscar-winning actress Laura Dern were spotted enjoying a leisurely lunch at the quaint Café Cluny, located in the chic West Village neighborhood of Manhattan, this past Monday.

The talented duo, ages 48 and 56 respectively, appeared engrossed in an intimate conversation as they exited the popular Franco-American bistro, leaving onlookers wondering what projects or topics might have been on the agenda.

Although Cooper and Dern have never shared the screen together in a film, they both participated in Eddie Vedder’s virtual benefit, Venture Into Cures, in 2020. This event was a pivotal moment in the fight against Epidermolysis Bullosa, a rare skin condition, raising an impressive sum of nearly $5M for vital research.

Dern, ever the style icon, was dressed effortlessly for their meeting, donning a blue beanie, a coordinating leather jacket, a casual grey top, dark blue jeans, and a pair of striking green sneakers. She was later seen adding a touch of color to her day with a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

Cooper's Casual Chic amidst Romance Rumors

Meanwhile, Cooper kept it casual yet polished, conversing on his phone while sporting a navy-blue cardigan layered over a light-grey sweatshirt, complemented by dark grey slacks and a pair of sturdy brown boots.

This casual sighting in the city comes amidst swirling rumors, as reported by People, of a recent cozy getaway to New Hope, PA, with his purported love interest, supermodel Gigi Hadid. This locale holds special significance as Hadid owns a charming four-bedroom farmhouse in the area.

Eyewitnesses at the exclusive River House at Odette's claim to have seen the pair enjoying a quiet evening together at the ROOF, a members-only rooftop bar boasting panoramic views of the Delaware River. A source close to the situation disclosed, “They were both here at the same time.

The roof bar is for members and hotel guests only. Their family farm is only about a mile down the road”. First seen dining together in New York City on October 5, Cooper and 28-year-old Hadid have since been the subject of much media speculation.

An insider revealed to, “He hasn't felt this excitement about a woman in a very long time. They are taking it slow, but he's very into her. She is exactly his type”. The source further added that Hadid’s status as a mother to three-year-old daughter Khai resonates with Cooper, who is a father himself, sharing six-year-old daughter Lea De Seine with ex-fiancé Irina Shayk.

The appeal for Cooper extends beyond their shared experience as parents. Hadid’s recent controversial statements in support of Palestine reportedly found a supportive listener in Cooper, who values her backing of his longstanding sobriety, which has been a cornerstone of his life since 2004.
