Former Hollywood couple Zoe Saldana and Bradley Cooper have clearly learned the hard way that mixing business with pleasure isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. The Words costars, who dated for a few months after meeting on the set of the movie, reunited publically for the first time at the Los Angeles premiere of the film – and it was awkward to say the least.

Saldana, who dazzled in an Elie Saab Couture lace dress and Brian Atwood heels, looked far from thrilled to be back in the arms of her former lover on the red carpet, as the two attempted to force smiles through gritted teeth for the flashbulbs.
The 34-year-old actress has been notably absent from the New York and Philadelphia press events for the film, while Cooper, 37, has been working the red carpet.
