Bradley Cooper Steps Out in Paris With French Beauty Mélanie Laurent

Bradley Cooper and Melanie Laurent in Paris.

Bradley Cooper's fluent French might be coming in handy with a new woman in his life, Inglourious Basterds's Mélanie Laurent. Bradley and Mélanie were spotted out yesterday strolling in Paris and dining at Ralph's, sparking rumors of romance between the two. They strolled around the picture-perfect streets, and Mélanie waited patiently to the side when he stopped to snap pictures with some lucky fans. The current Sexiest Man Alive also has his mother and sister along in the city of lights, and he was spotted taking them out on the town last night. A source says Bradley and Mélanie are just friends, but if there is something more there perhaps she's meeting the family already.

Regardless of her relationship status with Mr. Cooper, Mélanie has a lot to celebrate today. She stars alongside Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer in Beginners, which was one of the big winners at last night's Gotham Awards. Beginners also snapped up a number of Spirit Awards nominations this morning, including one for best feature film of the year.
