Bradley Cooper became a tabloid sensation last year when he was linked to two A-list leading ladies and while he “just can’t” talk about his reported current paramour, Renee Zellweger, he did open up about those Jennifer Aniston rumors.

“I’m reading about me taking Jennifer Aniston to my Bel Air mansion… and having a candlelit dinner, and I was like, ‘That’s crazy. Never happened,’” Bradley told the July issue of Details magazine, which features “The A-Team” star on its cover.

While Bradley said the tabloid stories may have been false, they did provide some amusing fodder when he ran into the former “Friend.”

The star revealed he said to Jennifer next time he saw her, “Hey, we should hang out — the other dates that we never had went so well.”

Bradley also opened up to Details about bulking up to play Lieutenant Templeton “Faceman” Peck in “The A-Team.” He revealed he trained two hours a day and cut out sugar, salt and flour for a full six months before he even hit “The A-Team” set.

“As the movie progressed, I got in increasingly better shape,” he told the magazine. “There’s this one fight scene… toward the end, where it’s, like, the apex of the work. We finished…and I swear to God, it looked like my head was digitally superimposed onto someone else’s body.”

It’s quite a change from the 35-year-old’s youth when he was once mistaken for a young lady.

“People thought I was a girl when I was little, because I looked like a girl,” he told Details. “I was in a coffee shop once and the waitress was like, ‘What do you want, Miss?’ I was 10 or 11— the worst age to have that happen. I had a jean jacket on and a Metallica pin. I thought I was really cool.”
