Is Jennifer Aniston ready to begin a new chapter of her rocky love life?
Several weeks after she and Bradley Cooper flirted at a party for her movie Management, the pair enjoyed a cozy late-night dinner together at the romantic Italian restaurant Il Cantinori in Manhattan on Thursday, People reports.
"It was a date," says a source close to the actress. "She is taking it slow. She is obviously looking for love, but is not about to rush into anything."
When the two met up earlier this spring, pals of both dismissed romance rumors. "I am single," said Cooper, who fans remember from Wedding Crashers and more recently as one of the dudes behind hilarious The Hangover quotes.
He did say he finds rumors linking him to Jennifer Aniston "flattering."
Are Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Aniston coupling up?
Bradley Cooper added that he's looking "for humor, great personality, intelligence, inner and outer beauty" in a woman. Oh, and the one must? "She has to like my dogs [Samson and Charlotte]. My dogs and I come in package."
That shouldn't be a problem for Jen, a canine lover with two dogs of her own, Norman and Dolly. The actress spent most of the spring shooting the romantic comedy The Baster in New York, while getting past her split with some douchebag.
Thoughts? Do Jen and Brad ... ley make a cute couple?
