What is this? Do I hear crickets??? Yes, I do. Brad is straight.
He married and had a quick anullment with Esposito, an anullment widely rumored to be based on Cooper's sexuality.
Oh, and both Esposito and Zellwegger are well known as beards and/or beards-lesbians.
So basically there's no proof.
There is no smoking gun regarding Bradley Cooper's sexuality, but Nikki Finke implied that he is in the closet during her Golden Globes liveblog, and that is good enough for me.
He was friends with Tony Randall = gay
Ummm....this is the DL, proof has no place here.
If everybody has to start backing up their claims with silly ol' proof the whole site will be shut down.
OP are you new here? If an actor is under 45, relatively hot and his career is on fire then he is a gay. End of story. Don't argue. Move it along, nothing to see here.

Sorry, Girls! Gossip all you like. I know for a 100% fact (first hand) that Mr. Bradley Cooper is 100% heterosexual. Not gay. Not Bi. 100% straight. I know on DataLounge everyone is gay. But, Brad, please! Not even close. Get a life , people, and mind your own business. Don't make fools of yourselves.
Knock It Off People, It's Not Funny Anymore
R11 = Mary Hart
The twinkle in Victor Garber's eyes is all the proof I need.
But the Good Lord has also provided me with the twinkle in Bradley Cooper's toes.
Twinkle, twinkle little closeted star
Sorry we can't help you, OP: this website promises only gay [bold]gossip,[/bold] news and pointless bitchery, as the lagline says.
Clearly you would be happier at our sister website, Irrefutableevidencelounge. Their tagline promises "sworn and notarized affidavits, DNA evidence and pointless bitchery."
There's no real proof that he's straight either...
He told Howard Stern that he likes doing love scenes with Jennifer Lawrence because he feels safe....Howard said she's a young beautiful woman why do you need to be safe from that (with a heavy "you are gay implication")?
(Bradley probably wanted to say the girly parts gross me out)
I can vouch for his straightness.
R3 Jen Esposito is not gay. Bradley is gay and is a wife-beater as well.
I take it as proof an A-lister is gay when Lainey insists SO HARD they are straight. She's the go-to gal for that, cash only please.
She had all this "insider" info about how TOTALLY INTO Renee Zellweger he was. Um nobody is that into Renee Zellweger.
Men who are attractive, rich and successful don't have problems getting women, especially A list Hollywood actors, they just don't. When a guy who fits this description seems to have trouble securing a successful relationship with a woman, it isn't beyond reason to speculate that perhaps he's more interested in guys.
[r23] yep Jake Gyllenhaal.
My Kingdom and a horse for shirtless photo of Brad Cooper!
[quote]He married and had a quick anullment with Esposito, an anullment widely rumored to be based on Cooper's sexuality.
Actually, the widely rumored reason at the time for the quick annulment was because BC allegedly beat the shit out of her. I've never seen this rumor denied by her or any other party.
As for "proof" that he's gay, the rumors date back to the first season of "Alias," when he was allegedly indulging his daddy complex and fucking known homosexualist Victor Garber.
Wow. R26 is the pink Ungaro spring frock (with a basket of mewling kittens AND a treeful of parrots) of shirtless photos.
They can hear that ping on Mars.
Love how google alerts work so fast, don't you [r11] ?
I should work in PR... I hear it pays well but the hours must suck because we post 24/7 here on DL.
Sometimes I think the "X celebrity is gay" threads are often stretching to make it add up, but BC is probably one of the most likely ones to actually be gay. There is almost nothing about him that points to straight.
That Howard Stern interview was painful so much ducking and dodging it was beyond obvious and I laughed when he tried to downplay his family wealth.
I know for a fact that a younger Bradley let an older director and a not so old actor give him blow jobs, just as he was starting to be known in the profession. I don't know if he were reciprocal; I kind of doubt it with the director who was then a slimy 66 year old. The actor was in his late 40's and nice looking, though stout, so maybe... However the MO of both these guys was to blow younger men and neither would have withdrawn the offer if Bradley had made it clear he wouldn't be blowing back.
Around the time of Wedding Crashers I knew two actors who claimed they had had brief flings with Bradley. Have no idea if they were telling the truth, though one was hot, bi and pretty seductive, so it's possible.
Apparently the marriage was a disaster with mutual physical abuse and sexual problems. Don't know if that means something or not. I assume Bradley is bi, possibly leaning gay but I'm speculating. I do know though that he hasn't been rigidly averse to having gay sex at least occasionally.
Bradley is aware that you're gossiping abot him.
If Bradley is hanging out on DL, he's got a lot bigger problems ahead of him than a clandestine blow job or two.
Bradley? Get off the internet and start reading some better scripts, please.
Wasn't he out in college?
"I have a problem?"
r35 Slimy and 66...Joel Schumacher?
Late 40's and stout...oh yeah, Victor Garber (20 years ago).
R30, seriously, a wife beater? Bradley and who else? You know perfectly well he couldn't dominate anything over 4 feet tall and 50 pounds.
I don't see it either. It's petty sad that his PR machine would rather the public think he's a wife beater than a gay man.
[r42] so true, but there is nothing worse from a PR perspective than being gay for an A-list leading man. Anything else can be rehabbed, apologized for, dues paid, etc. But not being gay.
The business behind entertainment is a sick world.
R14 is funny.
Tiny, tiny thin penis. Ugh.
I think he has a gorgeous body but in the photo at R26 I don't even see a hint of bulge. Either the water was very cold or Bradley suffers from extreme tinymeat.
I recently saw a 1- or 2-year rebroadcast of Bradley Cooper on "Inside the Actors' Studio." I was shocked that he broke down crying about 4-5 times in the beginning of the episode. Shocked 'cause I haven't seen any other stars on that show break down. I cry myself a LOT - see nothing wrong with men crying - but in my 50+ years on the planet, I have seen straight male relatives, friends, and famous people (other than Boehner, heh-heh!) cry: VERY little. Myself and my gay friends on the other hand: boo-hoo-hoo, Mary!'s.
Again I do not see ANYTHING wrong with men crying, per se. THe only thing I could think of, cause this episode listed a "in memory of" Bradley's father (who along with B's mother was in the audience), was that perhaps his father was ill during the broadcast? But I have no knowleddge if this is true.
I think he's a great, underappreciate actor; I actually don't care if he is straight or gay but I would tend to lean about 80% toward Gay/Bi.
[quote]There's no real proof that he's straight either...
"You can't prove there's no god either."
Sorry, honey. The burden of proof is on you.
Big thick Italian cock.
r47 I saw that episode; I chalked it up to merely another case of an actor being way in tune with his emotions. I remember those "AFI: 100 Years..." specials; a lot of the actors being interviewed broke down in tears while talking about a particular movie or actor. The ones I remember were Dustin Hoffman, discussing "Tootsie", Burt Reynolds, discussing "To Kill A Mockingbird", and Bridget Fonda, collapsing into sobs over a Jimmy Stewart performance.
R48, the heterosexual fantasy that every man is straight until proven otherwise is just as irrational and ridiculous as the DLers who claim every attractive man in Hollywood is gay.
I love these pics of the newly A-list Cooper going out of his way not to be photographed with Victor Garber. Notice how cool and professional Victor and Renee Zellweger are.
I like to think Victor acts extremely chummy towards Bradley in front of cameras just to fuck with him.
What was that fauxmance with Zoe Saldana? Is she a dyke? She gives off very masculine vibes like Will Smith's wife.
I don't think he's with anyone now. Maybe he got sick of the bearding.
[quote]I think he has a gorgeous body but in the photo at [R26] I don't even see a hint of bulge. Either the water was very cold or Bradley suffers from extreme tinymeat.
I don't think he's hung either. He never has a substantial bulge on any of the talk shows he does when he's sitting with his legs apart, but that doesn't detract from the fact that I think he's the hottest thing in Hollywood right now.
So there's one person on here with good gossip with details. The rest of you are contributing nothing. Any other actual evidence besides r35?
he's with wentworth!
Well he's never sucked my cock but...
Back in the "Alias" days, Cooper hit on a male crew member I know. He hit on him hard, there was nothing vague or ambiguous about it and no way it was misinterpreted.
Did the crew member reciprocate?
Well he speaks French just beautifully.
He has a gay face. Proof enough.
All male actors are, at the very least, Bi. That's one of the reason they become actors, they are more in touch with their emotional and creative side. Stands to reason that most creative people are experimental in all areas, including sex.
Unfortunately he did not, R62. I'd have a more interesting story to tell if he had.
He isn't a bad actor, and the body is nice...but he doesn't turn me on at all.
r18 yes she is!
This is a very stupid thread- Victor Garber has been partnered with the same guy for years. Sure, yeah he had an affair with Cooper because the two might be friends and five each other a hug when they greet (which is how I greet almost all my straight make friends).
Bradley never denied the rumors that he was dating Victor. But he did say he thought it was fantastic.
Why share evidence? Evidence can be refuted with lies. If you have the evidence, if you were there, you know the truth.
Never share evidence with a hostile party.
R53, Who are you? Where are you? Why did you say that?
You are correct.
I keep reading these rumors about him but I know someone who knows him. He's not gay.
Statistically, it's more likely that he's straight.
[quote]I keep reading these rumors about him but I know someone who knows him. He's not gay.
Well I guess that proves it then.
That's true, R74, and if it weren't for the fact that he's gay, he'd definitely be straight.
You date Zellweger and Cameron Diaz....you are gay. End of story.
So proof is required to show he's straight but it doesn't matter if there is no actual proof that he's gay? Huh...
HE DATED ZELLWEGER!!!!!!GAY GAY GAY!!!!!
Bradley's marriage to Jennifer Esposito lasted from December 2006 to May 2007, that's 5 months, one whole month longer than Renee Zellweger's marriage to Kenny Chesney.
He's 38, handsome, at the height of his success as an actor, worth an estimated $15 million and yet is still somehow single. He's taking his mom as his Oscars date.
When asked if he was dating Jennifer Lawrence he said "No, I could be her father!" Since when has a straight man ever felt he is too old for a woman? Especially when they're only 15 years apart.
He supposedly dated Renee Zellweger, Zoe Saldana, but has he ever actually moved in with these women? Do we have any more proof of a relationship than they were seen in public together? That question I do not have an answer to, if you can answer it, please do.
But yeah, he's probably straight, I mean there's nothing above that would suggest otherwise, right?
He has gay face-proof enough
I have no idea what would make you say that, R79.
Oh man, another Kindom and a horse for a pair of his old shorts to sniff.
Unfortunately I don't have Bradley's shorts,but here's his fine ass on the left.
I like the ass on the right. Who does it belong to?
You're late, R84. I already linked to that pic in another thread. The ass on the right belongs to David Gail AKA Stuart Carson, Brenda's short-term fiance on Beverly Hills 90210 (it's great seeing his naked ass, as that bubble butt REALLY filled out his jeans on 90210). The movie is called "Bending All The Rules".
