Bradley CooperRemember last month when Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lopez were spotted having a cozy little romantic dinner at Per Se in New York? Rumors flew fast and furious that they were dating, but they claimed it was just business, then things died down a bit. But this weekend we found out that they may have been fibbing about their romantic feelings for one another. Shocker.

After Cooper was seen with a woman who looked oh so like JLo Saturday in Los Angeles, sources told People they are in fact dating. "She does like his attention, and it makes her feel good that he seems so into her. She has a fun time with Bradley and he makes her laugh."

I admit my first thought was NOOOO! She is not good enough for Bradley, because he's just ... Bradley Cooper. But the more I think about it, I actually think they could be good for one another right now. Let me explain ...

First of all, it's not going to last, and they both probably know it -- perfect for a rebound relationship for her and a nice no-strings fling for him. As dreamy as Bradley is, he's not exactly known for a penchant for commitment, and she's not either, so why not have some fun in the meantime. And they're both just so pretty.

Plus, he may just knock her down a little from her high horse. She may claim to still be Jenny from the block, but she's been displaying her diva ways a lot recently. Cooper may just be tough and down-to-earth enough to tell her like it is. Let's hope so anyway.

And she could really get him out of pickle. It seems that Fat Actress star Kirstie Alley is hot for Cooper and wants to hunt him down, cougar style. A source told the National Enquirer (yes, I  know, but sometimes they're right) that she is pining over him:

Kirstie has been des­perate for a date with Bradley. Since dropping the pounds, Kirstie believes she can have any man in Hollywood – and Bradley is her number one pick.

Now, he has the perfect excuse as to why he's going to have to resist her, and Kirstie will just have to hunt elsewhere. If nothing else, that's got to be a good reason for Lopez and Cooper to date, no?

And finally, if he and Jennifer Aniston aren't going to give us our Brad and Jen back, then at least we can get it via him and this Jennifer. It's not perfect, but nothing really is when it comes to Hollywood romance, now is it?

So see, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lopez are a perfect match ... for a few weeks anyway.
