Washington: Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana have reportedly started dating, after co-starring in the upcoming film ‘The Words’ earlier this year.

The ‘Hangover’ actor - who was recently named People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive - is said to have grown close to the ‘Avatar’ star and the pair are now allegedly planning a romantic skiing break in the Rocky Mountains.

“They are very happy. They are totally dating,” Contactmusic quoted a source as telling E! News.

The 36-year-old actor - who split from Renee Zellweger earlier this year and has previously been linked to the likes of Jennifer Lopez and Olivia Wilde - recently admitted romancing a fellow celebrity can be more trouble-free as they understand life in the spotlight.

“Connection and chemistry are amazing things and if the other person is used to being in the media, it makes things easier,” he said.

Zoe announced she and her fiance of 11 years, Keith Britton, were splitting amicably last month.
