Fans were thrilled about the possibility that Jennifer Garner and Bradley Cooper are dating. Ben Affleck, however, is, reportedly, not pleased about it.
Cooper and Garner were, recently, spotted having fun on the beach in Malibu with the actor's daughter, following the actress' split from John Miller. Their outing sparked speculations that romance could be blooming between them.
New Idea claimed Jen and Bradley have been "quietly" seeing each other for months. However, the two have no plans, for now, to make an official announcement about the status of their relationship. The tabloid source claimed, despite the lack of official announcement, Cooper and Garner are, now, considered as the newest couple in Hollywood.
The tabloid added, while friends of the two were thrilled to see them hanging out, Affleck is not happy about it. Despite being clearly madly in love with Ana de Armas, the Batman actor has rumored jealous of Garner and Cooper's connection.
A source told New Idea Ben Affleck was always jealous of Jen and Bradley's chemistry during their time working in Alias. Garner and Cooper became friends when they starred in JJ Abrams' spy drama in the early 2000s. The Peppermint actress played the role of CIA agent Sydney Bristow while Cooper portrayed journalist friend Will Tippin.
The insider claimed Garner and the A Star Is Born actor have been attracted to each other for so long. They didn't take their friendship to the next level because they were always in a relationship with other people.
The tabloid claimed Affleck's jealousy reignited after learning that Jennifer Garner and Bradley Cooper recently hung out together. But, for now, Affleck is, allegedly, not planning on saying anything about the supposed romance but intends to keep an eye on the two.
The source claimed the Good Will Hunting actor is fully aware that, if the rumor is true, he is in no position to get involved in his ex-wife's affairs. Affleck has no plan to say anything about who Jen wants to date because the actress has been supportive of his romance with Ana de Armas.
Gossip Cop, meanwhile, doesn't think Affleck is affected or jealous of Garner and Cooper's closeness. It pointed out that, if Jen is indeed dating Bradley, The Way Back actor has no reason to be concerned as the actress had dated John Miller after their split and he was okay with that. There is, also, no reason for him to be jealous as he has his girlfriend Ana de Armas to focus on.
