Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Garner Enjoy Beach Day in Malibu | 22 Words

A-list friends, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Garner were recently snapped enjoying a beach day together in Malibu...

 

Bradley Cooper has had a rough couple of years...

Last year, The Hangover actor went through a highly publicized breakup with his long-term model girlfriend, Irina Shayk.

Cooper and Shayk first sparked relationship rumors in 2015.

The pair were spotted attending Broadway's "Finding Neverland," just a short while after Shayk's split from soccer star, Cristian Ronaldo.

Cooper had also just split up with a very famous face...

Cooper broke up with actress and model, Suki Waterhouse, shortly before hooking up with Shayk.

They quickly came notorious for their major PDA...

Just a month after dating rumors began between the pair, they were spotted getting extremely cozy on countless occasions.

But it wasn't long before the pair hit a rocky patch...

Even though the couple was yet to make it official, rumors already began to surface in early 2016 that the couple had broken up. However, it turned out that all was well, as an insider denied the speculation, telling E!: "They are still very much together."

The couple ignored rumors, making their relationship red-carpet official in March 2016.

The couple looked very loved-up as they made their first red-carpet appearance at the L'Oreal Red Obsession Party in Paris.

The pair have always kept things relatively private...

There's always a lack of privacy that comes with being an A-lister, but Cooper and Shayk have managed to keep their relationship pretty under wraps. To keep false rumors at bay, Shayk made their relationship Instagram official posting a rare snap of the two from the neck down in the pool.

They welcomed their first child in March 2017, a pregnancy that they'd managed to keep low-key.

Shayk kept her pregnancy private - even managing to hide it while making her Victoria's Secret Fashion Show debut.

Apparently, none of the other people working on the runway knew either, according to what a source told People.

The couple welcomed their baby girl, Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper, in March 2017.

And they rarely made red-carpet appearances together.

This picture, taken at the 2018 Met Gala, was the last time that the pair graced the red-carpet together until the A Star is Born awards season stint.

Here, Bradley became embroiled in even more romance rumors...

Despite him still being with Shayk.

As Lady Gaga and Cooper made multiple appearances to promote the film, they looked very close...

Fans were quick to suggest that they were romantically involved. Bradley's supermodel girlfriend was also notably absent for most of the red-carpet segment of the events - creating speculation that their relationship was on the rocks.

As awards season for the film kicked off, the rumors ramped up even more.

The film received several nominations and awards, including an Oscar, but cinema aside... Even though the pair's on-screen romance was strictly fictional, fans couldn't help but notice the off-screen chemistry between the pair.

Gaga even pulled Bradley on stage at her Las Vegas Engima show.

During her Las Vegas residency last year, she managed to convince Cooper to join her on stage to sing "Shallow" - the lead song from the movie. The pair once again looked very close as they sat at Gaga's piano to perform the hit song. Once again, Irina was nowhere to be seen.

So, where did this leave Bradley's girlfriend?

Well, as for the suspiciously intimate Oscar's performance, Shayk was said to be "unbothered", even congratulating Gaga and Cooper for the show. But more trouble was to come...

Reports emerged soon afterwards that Cooper and Shayk had finally called it quits.

The pair had officially ended their 4-year relationship, despite "trying out different arrangements and trying to find their way".

But, even after their eventual split, Cooper continued to be hounded by the press over his relationship with Gaga...

But, the singer reportedly had "nothing to do" with the pair's relationship struggles.

So, a year on, it seems only right that the actor takes a little bit of time to relax and have some fun.

This week, he was spotted out with his long-time pal and fellow actor, Jennifer Garner.

The pair have been friends for years now...

Ever since co-starring in the iconic spy thriller series Alias together, which aired from 2001 to 2006. So, of course, many have speculated a potential romance.

In November 2018, Garner talked about her long friendship with Cooper when she honored him at the American Cinematheque Awards.

Noting she was one of the first people who met him when he touched down in Hollywood, she joked, "I took him home and made him dinner… I'm still making him dinner."

And, on his A Star is Born success, she said:

"Bradley, what's happening to you now is a pure joy to those who know you, especially to those of us who've known you from the start.It turns out you weren't just handsome all along. You were also a wonder, and you are welcome at my table anytime."

However, Garner is reportedly dating businessman, John Miller...

So the pair are definitely just friends... For now.

Anyway, this week they were spotted enjoying a beach day out in Malibu.

Cooper, who was shirtless, was seen laying in the sand with his 3-year-old daughter, Lea De Seine, as Garner sat cosily next to them.
