After just three months together, Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana have reportedly ended their relationship.
The celebrity breakup comes as a surprise to many of the actors' fans. Just last month, Saldana was photographed shopping with Cooper's mother, leaving many wondering who decided to end the romance.
"The broke up last week," said an insider speaking to E! News. "He dumped her, he just doesn't want to be in a relationship at the moment," they added of Cooper.
Cooper, 37, was first spotted with Saldana on New Year's Eve this year.
"They have a great friendship, a natural chemistry and it was for that reason their relationship was able to grow into something more," noted the source, according to E!. "But the timing was wrong, they are in different places in their lives."
Referring to the future, the insider added, "They are hoping to remain friends."
Saldana, 33, is best known for her roles in films such as "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" and "Avatar." The actress, born Zoe Yadira Zaldana Nazario, is said to be Dominican and Puerto Rican, and got her first big break in 2000's film "Center Stage."
She was formerly linked to actor Keith Briton, with whom she broke off an engagement to last year.
A source close to Saldana said that the actress never thought she would marry Cooper. "She and Bradley weren't super serious at all," said an insider speaking to Us Weekly.
Cooper, who stars in hit films such as "The Hangover" and "Limitless," was named "Sexiest Man Alive" last year by People magazine.
Saldana and Cooper's breakup comes right after "The Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence referred to the 37-year-old actor as "sexy."
"Bradley's very sexy because he's sweet, funny, nice, and down to earth," said the 21-year-old actress speaking to LOOK Magazine.
Meanwhile, Lawrence is dating her British "X-Men First Class" co-star Nicholas Hoult, whose personality she also admires.
"American guys feel the need to exude so much confidence," Lawrence dished to the magazine. "British guys do the slumping shoulders and stammering attitude, which is a lot more likable."
