Actor denies they are romantically involved

Bradley Cooper has dismissed reports he’s secretly dating Jennifer Aniston.

The actor dined with the Friends star at New York’s Ristorante Il Cantinori earlier this month.

But Bradley, 34, insists nothing is going on.

‘She’s a friend of mine. Simply, simply, just a friend,’ he says. ‘She’s someone who is super, super known. Famous.

‘If someone says “hello” to her, it’s given that he’s fallen in love with her. So, no, no. She’s a very, very interesting woman, but she’s simply a friend.’

Despite starring in He’s Just Not That Into You with Jen, Bradley says they didn’t get to see much of each other.

‘My part was solely with Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Connelly,’ he tells People. ‘Which isn’t bad at all.’

Jennifer, 40, split with musician John Mayer in February.
