American actor Bradley Cooper has set aside the romours that he is dating former Friends actor Jennifer Aniston after a dinner date in New York with actress Renee Zellweger.
The Hangover actor has repeatedly denied the rumours that his relationship with his He's Just Not That Into You co-star Aniston is anything more than platonic, insisting they are really "just friends", despite being snapped dining out together last month, reports contactmusic.com.
New reports also suggest Cooper is dating Zellweger, he took the Bridget Jones' Diary actress out to an Italian restaurant Tuesday, where fellow diners claim they acted like the perfect couple.
"He pulled her chair out for her when she sat down and he kissed her on the hand. If they're just friends, they were being awfully affectionate. Throughout the dinner they were playful and flirty. She played with her hair a lot, and she would often touch his arm when she was making a point about something," said an onlooker.
"At one point, he seemed to want to whisper something to her as if it were a secret. He spoke into her ear and then they both started giggling," the onlooker added.
Zellweger, who appears alongside Cooper in upcoming movie Case 39, has previously been romanced by Jim Carrey and rocker Jack White, and was married briefly to country singer Kenny Chesney.
