If casting rumors are to be believed, Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are going to be lovahs once more! Oh, sorry, we just meant on the big screen. Not anywhere else. We didn’t mean to fill you with all that glee/burning jealousy. The two have already locked lips for the upcoming film The Silver Linings Playbook, due out in November 2012, and now Jennifer and Bradley are set to lock wits (and, well, probably lips again) in the new drama Serena, tentatively scheduled for release in 2014. You think you’re excited about this now; wait until Catching Fire has come out. And Bradley has shaved off that ‘tache.
In the film set in 1929 North Carolina, The Hunger Games leading lady will reportedly play the titular character, wife of Bradley’s timber baron and, um, would-be murderer of his illegitimate son. You know we love Jennifer and are confident her steady gaze can convey “deep-seated need for homicidal revenge” as well “deep-seated need to avoid death at the hands of her fellow teenagers.” The only issue we might have with the casting is their 15 year age difference. But hey, the movie takes place in the ’20s! And they can always age Jennifer with make-up! Forget we said anything because now we’d really like to see these two square off again!

Gladiator. The Talented Mr. Ripley. American Psycho. What do all these movies have in common? Absurdly. Hot. Villains. Allegedly joining the grand cinematic tradition of evil hotties is Bradley Cooper, who is rumored to cameo as Superman’s archnemesis Lex Luthor in the upcoming Man of Steel movie. While Michael Shannon stars as the film’s main bad guy General Zod, the website Comic Book News is now claiming that the Hangover: Part II star will allegedly at least cameo as Luthor in the 2013 film. Meanwhile, Bradley will be appearing as Lex Luthor in our elaborate erotic daydreams starting…now.
Of course, Henry Cavill isn’t so bad as Superman and his bespectacled nerdlinger alter ego, either; we bet Amy Adams‘ Lois Lane wouldn’t kick him out of bed for accidentally smashing her nightstand with his absurd alien strength. But is Clark Kent going to tent his fingers and laugh maniacally as he plots the bleak fate of a doomed Metropolis, all the while pinning you to the wall with his piercing blue eyes? No. No, he is not. Here’s hoping Bradley will.

Well, are they? There’s a very fine line between “insanely hot friends” and “insanely hot friends with benefits.” If rumors are true, Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana are currently hurtling over that line on a rocket-powered, Cupid-navigated hovercraft of love. So to speak. E! Online reported today that The Words co-stars are allegedly canoodling, citing one source who declared, “They are totally dating.” Hmmm, that sounds exactly like what we would scream out a cab window if we saw Bradley and Zoe kissing on the street. We’ll go ahead and file it as People’s Sexy Evidence A.
Saldana’s rep denied the two were romantically linked after they were spotted clubbing together last month, though it did nothing to quash gossip that the two spent their holidays together on ski trip. All we’re saying is, Zoe and fiance Keith Britton split in November after 11 years together. That very same month, the world was reminded of Bradley’s smokey hotness via his People’s Sexiest Man Alive win. Mere sexy coincidence? We sexy hope not. Oh, how we sexy hope not.
Ugh, this is like the 2008 elections all over again, except without the indelible historical consequences. WE HOPE. Having been named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive last month, Bradley Cooper appeared on Britain’s The Graham Norton Show to acknowledge what the majority of America seem to believe: Ryan Gosling is even sexier than he. “It’s so awful that I’m admitting this, but the hell with it: There was such a backlash when they announced it. Ryan Gosling, who I love, and I just made a movie with him and he’s the greatest,” Bradley says, remarking of recent paparazzi photos: “He literally looks like he’s in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway. The peacoat is like this, with the scarf! And then there’s ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never comes out of his house.” So what happens to the universe when the Sexiest Man Alive has his own Sexiest Man Alive? We feel like a wormhole might open up. On the other side of that wormhole? George Clooney, rubbing his hands together and biding his time.
Relax, we’re not actually going to give you diet tips on this, the most holy of holidays for food lovers. We’re merely suggesting that if you’re anything like us, it’s hard to remember that there will be consequences if we ask for second helpings of mashed potatoes and pie. We slip into a food coma and wake up just long enough to eat the leftovers. So we thought we’d provide this little visual inspiration: 24 hot celebrities — from Britney Spears to Henry Cavill, Pippa Middleton to Hugh Jackman, Adriana Lima to Jennifer Lopez — who have bodies we’d basically kill to have, and who work hard to get them. Maybe seeing them jog, lift weights and strut their assets will inspire you to get off the couch. Or you might just want to sit back and enjoy the view while munching on a turkey leg. That’s the kind of freedom those pilgrims came here to attain, isn’t it?

Aw, remember when Bradley Cooper was just a sweet newspaper reporter with an unrequited crush on his superspy best friend? We doubt Alias‘ Will would believe today’s news — that Brad is People‘s Sexiest Man Alive — but the rest of us aren’t so surprised. Especially not those of us who saw this video of him speaking French. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdsoFZxk7DU Just don’t forget those of us who loved you way back when!
The rest of the People list includes an eclectic, but undeniably hot mix of actors: Hunger Games hottie Liam Hemsworth, his big bro’s Thor co-star Idris Elba, Jennifer Aniston‘s sweetie Justin Theroux, Captain America himself Chris Evans, country superstar Tim McGraw, The Good Wife‘s Josh Charles (he’ll always be Dan from Sports Night to us!), comedy crush Joel McHale, Game of Thrones warrior Jason Momoa, most-obvious-choice-in-the-world Ryan Gosling, even-sexier-with-age Alec Baldwin and so-delish-he-distracts-us-from-screaming American Horror Story star Dylan McDermott.

Casper Smart is the new man on Jennifer Lopez‘s block, according to The Insider. Who exactly is he? Giving us Cris Judd deja vu, Smart is one of J.Lo’s backup dancers. He’s the “mystery man” the paps spotted the singer with a couple of times in New York. One of those occasions was right after the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, and we all agree that Jenny looked seriously hot at the event. A source also told People, “Yes, they are dating and having a good time. They’ve been getting more open with their flirting for weeks.”
Looks like Wendy Williams was right about Jennifer and Bradley Cooper.

The always opinionated Wendy Williams chatted with VH1 News’ Janell Snowden at the Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards last night, where Jennifer Lopez was honored. Williams, no stranger to relationship drama herself, told us that she thinks J.Lo and her ex-hubby Marc Anthony will be back together in 10 years. “I like them as a couple,” she said.
But what about Jen’s rumored fling with the sexy Bradley Cooper, he of the hot, slicked-back hair? “Oh, he doesn’t want her!” she sassed. “She’s got two kids, she’s in her 40s. I think that he’s using her like she’s using him, for pictures and press and pop culture.”
Which Wendy is OK with, of course. “That’s fine,” she told us. “But what 30-something year-old man wants a 40-something year-old woman with two kids and an ex-husband with a machete in the bushes?”
Er, well when you put it that way…
Looks like Kim Kardashian’s divorce from Kris Humphries is now official. “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kim said in a statement to E! News. “I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.” Meanwhile, new hubby Kris sounds a lot less thrilled about the announcement, saying in a statement, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.” They still had that new marriage smell, too!
While Kim and Kris might be ready to sign those divorce papers only 72 days after their nuptials, they are nowhere near the first celebrity couple to bail out of their wedded bliss just weeks or months after walking down the aisle. From Mario Lopez to Britney Spears, Liz Taylor to Lisa Marie Presley, let’s look back at our favorite shortest Hollywood marriages:

She’s officially back on the market, guys! Olivia Wilde‘s divorce has finally come through and she is now a single lady. Olivia filed for divorce back in March this year citing “irreconcilable differences” after separating from husband Tao Ruspoli in January. While the news is sad — a marriage is over, after all — the actress has a slew of leading men helping her keep the blues away. Whether it’s at the aquarium with Ryan Gosling, snuggling with Justin Timberlake or dinner with Bradley Cooper, Olivia’s not exactly alone! With so many dates pouring in, it’ll probably be just a short while till Olivia’s with someone again!
