After a very public split from her husband Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez has been spotted having dinner with “The Hangover” actor Bradley Cooper.
Saturday, Cooper and Lopez appeared at Per Se in New York City’s Upper West Side. An employee at the restaurant confirmed to Us Weekly that the two-hour meal included “just the two of them.”
“People come here for privacy,” added Per Se’s host. The luxurious eatery is located in Columbus Circle and offers a nine-course chef’s tasting menu, as well as a nine-course vegetable tasting menu, each priced at $295 per person.
Requiring a reservation one month to the calendar date, Lopez met with Cooper Per Se while in New York promoting her new Kohl’s collection.
E! News reports that the meeting was not personal, and both actors have just ended serious relationships. Married for seven years, Lopez and Anthony announced their separation in July.
Cooper and “Bridget Jones Diary” actress Renee Zellweger ended their two-year relationship in March.
A source told People magazine that the actors are “in discussions regarding a project.”
Single mother to Max and Emme, Lopez has reignited her career by hosting the tenth season of “American Idol” and releasing her hit single “On the Floor.”
Despite being married three times, Lopez says she has not given up on romance, and that it can be expected she will be seen on dates in the future.
During an interview with Vanity Fair, Lopez said, “I remain an eternal optimist about love… I’m a hopeless romantic and passionate person when it comes to love.”
She continued, “I believe in love… It’s still my biggest dream.”
Feeling empowered and confident, the singer and actress says she will do “the best job I can as a mother, entertainer, and person,” and embraces new challenges her newly-found singlehood will present.
