Bradley Cooper Dating 20-Year-Old Model Suki Waterhouse

Bradley Cooper — who, for the record, is 38 — was all class when he denied dating 22-year-old Jennifer Lawrence by saying, “I could literally be her father.”

So then why is he dating 20-year-old model Suki Waterhouse?

According to Us Weekly, the Silver Linings Playbook star has been seen out twice with the young model. On February 12, they were spotted riding in a car together after the ELLE Style Awards in London. Yesterday, they were seen hanging out in Boston — where she’s not even old enough to drink!

“It’s new but they’re hanging out,” a source dished. “He’s really into her.”

Perez Hilton even says that Brad tried to “sneak” her into his hotel. It definitely looks like they’re seeing each other in some form.

Jennifer Lawrence said she was going to set Bradley up with her friends — perhaps that didn’t work out? (Or maybe J-Law is friends with 20-year-old models?)

Brad’s exes include the more age-appropriate Zoe Saldana (34) and Renee Zellweger (43), so this one’s got us stumped.

Are these age gap romances appropriate? According to Slate, “there’s little evidence that marriages with wide age gaps between partners turn out any worse than marriages between people born around the same time.”

Maybe it’s futile to fight them at this point.
