Did you hear about Amy Schumer and Bradley Cooper possibly dating? We couldn’t be more excited. When questioned on the rumors, our favorite female comedian responded with the super helpful explanation that the pair were “basically-but-not-really-just-kinda-maybe dating each other right now”. Well, that’s that settled then.

The story goes that the pair hung out at the Time 100 Gala and the two were deep in conversation, and apparent Cooper didn’t want Schumer to leave! Next thing you know Amy’s up on stage announcing to the audience, “I don’t know how Hollywood works, but I’m pretty sure that I’m dating Bradley Cooper.”

But what does Bradley have to say on his supposed budding romance? While appearing on The Howard Stern Show Cooper explained that he thought Amy was “Amazing” and “Very attractive”. That’s good, right? Explaining a little of their history the American actor divulged, “I do remember her coming to sit down because we had an awkward exchange at the MTV Movie Awards where we didn’t know each other, and she was sort of yelling my name and then I looked over and was like, ‘Hey,’ and then we talked. But at first, it was like, ‘Who is this person screaming at me?’”

Well, although there has been no official announcement, and while Bradley insists their relationship is purely platonic and all in the name of comedy, we certainly have our fingers crossed the pair make a go of it. If anything it’ll make for comedy gold for Schumer’s new series.  In the mean time here are the top 5 reasons as to why they’d make a good couple:


1) They already share the same friends, aka BFF Jennifer Lawrence. So that makes introductions a whole lot easier

2) She’s super complementary about his rumored girlfriend Irina Shayk, so you know jealously wouldn’t be an issue:

“It looked like a panther and a leopard mated and created, like, the worlds most bangable human. She’s from Russia and she looks like she’s having an orgasm and I’m there like What about me Bradley?!”


3) She’s willing to let Bradley do just about anything:

'He’s kind of hot. Trust me when he is in front of you. You just grab your ankles…You would just say things you didn't mean, like, any holes fine".


4) She’s already planned the wedding…plus it’s got an epic theme

"We've planned everything. We've tasted a lot of cakes. We're doing a 'Star Wars' theme… that's what we've decided."

5) She’s always ready for action. Always.
