Silver Linings Playbook sounds like it could easily be the name of Taylor Swift’s next “I’m so over you” single (or even a whole album), so maybe she’s planning ahead by setting her sights on the film’s star Bradley Cooper.
Rumors are flying that Taylor tried to get Jennifer Lawrence to set the two of them up ― but Bradley said that he and Taylor are never ever getting together in the first place (perhaps because he knew she was trouble?).
According to RadarOnline, a source claims Taylor “desperately” wants Bradley and “begged” Jennifer to hook them up.
“Bradley has absolutely no intention of getting together with Taylor,” the source said. “First of all, her reputation precedes her. Bradley is very wary of dating someone who is a bit of a serial dater like Taylor. He thinks she’s far too young for him and wants to date someone his own age, not 16 years younger because he’s ready for something serious.” (Or maybe he heard from Harry Styles that she doesn’t put out?)

“It was an ambitious move from Taylor, but she’s going to have fixate on someone else as Bradley’s just not that into her,” the source concluded, cleverly (or unintentionally) referencing Bradley’s 2009 romantic comedy.
Of course, we’re not sure we can take this source’s word as gospel. Does current Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence really not have better things to do than play matchmaker for Taylor Swift? Did anyone think Bradley would really go for Taylor in the first place, given their age difference? Does Taylor Swift really need to rely on a girlfriend to set her up with a guy at this point?
And most importantly: did she make this face when he said no?
Apparently, being a bachelor and Oscar nominee at the same time makes for lots of gossip fodder, since Bradley and Jennifer have also been a speculated couple. Sounds to us like Taylor's hunger games with Bradley have been blown out of proportion.
Besides, who hasn’t idly considered putting the moves on Bradley Cooper? Get in line, Taylor Swift!
Do you think Taylor really went after Bradley?
