For more of Cooper’s star-studded dating history, take a look at the gallery.
1. Jennifer Esposito, 2006.
The 2006 Golden Globe Awards saw Cooper stepping out in public with Blue Bloods actress Jennifer Esposito. They dated only a year before Cooper asked her a question that changed everything.
2. Marriage #1.
Cooper and Esposito announced their engagement in October of 2006, and they married a few months later in December. They honeymooned in the South of France where the prospect of a happy life together hung in the air.
3. Divorce #1.
Just four months into their marriage, Esposito called it quits by filing for divorce. In her autobiography, she wrote about one former flame she dubbed a “funny, smart, cocky, arrogant and a master manipulator” that some think was a veiled swipe at Cooper.
4. Isabella Brewster, 2008.
No one knows very much about this very private relationship, but here’s what is known: Isabella Brewster is the youngest sister of actress Jordana Brewster and, at the time, a talent agent at CAA. The relationship was brief and lasted about a year.
5. Renée Zellweger, 2009.
Cooper met Renée Zellweger on the set of Case 39 and they found something special. They began dating three years later — in the summer of 2009 — shortly after Zellweger divorced singer Kenny Chesney.
6. Bye-Bye Renée.
Thanks, or no thanks, to Cooper’s hectic schedule shooting the movie Limitless, a strain was put on the relationship which pushed Zellweger away. According to one source, "Renee had to take a backseat. It was just not working out." It ended in March of 2011.
7. J-Lo, 2011.
Later that year, shortly after Jennifer Lopez had divorced Marc Anthony, Cooper was spotted having an intimate dinner with her. This relationship was not meant to be and fizzled out after a couple of months.
8. Zoe Saldana, 2011.
As 2011 came to a close, Cooper found a connection with actress Zoe Saldana. They met on the set of The Words where Saldana was newly single after splitting up with her fiancé Keith Britton.
9. Star Trek.
Cooper and Saldana broke up once before trying again. After a year or so, before the holidays in 2012, they called it quits. Saldana moved on quickly, marrying Italian artist Marco Perego just six months later.
10. Suki Waterhouse, 2013.
English actress and model Suki Waterhouse was just 23 when she started dating Cooper, 40, in March of 2013. Their relationship lasted for two years before it ended. The reason that was given was their 17-year age difference. Specifically, Waterhouse wanted not ready to settle down and start a family. They were over by March of 2015.
11. Irina Shayk, 2015.
Russian Supermodel Irina Shayk was coming off the end of a five-year relationship with soccer-star Cristiano Ronaldo when she met Cooper. She began dating Cooper in early 2015.
