Jennifer Lawrence's co-star enjoys being in a relationship

Bradley Cooper has admitted he watches movies to learn more about love.

The actor, who stars alongside Jennifer Lawrence in Oscar-winning flick Silver Linings Playbook, is a self-confessed romantic and he’s taking tips from films to perfect the craft.

I’m trying to be more reflective because I have a tendency to lose perspective,’ says Bradley, 38.

But that’s probably a good thing. Romance is an art form and we probably shouldn’t try to manipulate our affections.

I’ve learnt a lot by watching movies and how they present the idea of romance and trying to take the best things about how a couple can enjoy being together.’

Bradley – who is rumoured to be ‘smitten’ with British model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse, 20 – loves nothing more than being in a relationship.

I consider myself to be a romantic,’ the actor tells the Daily Mirror.

I love the company of a great woman.

I think a relationship works best when both partners have a certain ease in the way they relate to each other and there’s a level of harmony that goes beyond just physical attraction.

There’s nothing better when you’re able to share that kind of closeness.’
