Limitless costars Bradley Cooper and Abbie Cornish grace the April cover of Marie Claire. The actors play a romantic pair in the sci-fi thriller, so they were a perfect fit for the annual couples issue. Abbie is usually seen with lighter hair, including in her sexy GQ spread, but looks hot with sensitive soul Bradley. The duo reunited to pose together and dish on their views about love ahead of the film's big publicity push. Stay tuned later today to PopSugarTV to see our I'm a Huge Fan winner's road to meeting Bradley at the NYC premiere! He and Abbie opened up about what makes relationships really work, their memorable first dates, the couples they admire, and more. Here are some highlights:
- Abbie on what makes for a happy romance: "A love for one's self, trust, communication, compassion, intimacy, giggles ... and the occasional tickle fight.
- Bradley on couples he admires: "My parents have been together since 1963, so that's something."
- Bradley on his first date: "The first date I ever went on was in Ocean City, New Jersey. I was 13, and I took this girl I knew to a seafood restaurant on the boardwalk and ordered clams on the half shell — not really a great first-date meal. I was dressed like such a dork, plus it's not very appealing to watch your date suck down 24 raw clams on a hot summer night, but that's how I laid it on."
- ...and Abbie on hers: "I believe mine was under the modular buildings in primary school. In year one or two, when I was 6 or 7. I remember crawling along the ground and meeting the boy there; it was dark, and we were nestled in the dirt. There were no kisses, a lot of silence. I think he may have pinched me ... then the school bell rang."
