However, sources close to Cooper have denied reports the pair were trying to rekindle their short-lived romance from 2009.

"They were looking at projects to work on together. Bradley loves Jennifer as a friend," PopEater quoted a source as telling

"Bradley knows that by dating Jennifer, he’d be known as Mr. Jennifer Aniston, " the source added.

According to some sources, the intense scrutiny over Aniston`s choice in men plus her immense fame are holding the ``Hangover`` actor back from getting into a relationship with the ‘Friends’ actress.
