They've denied there being any chance of a real-life relationship in the past, and now, Bradley Cooper is speaking out again to reassure us all that he's never, ever going to fall for Jennifer Lawrence.

The two play on-screen lovers pretty much all the time. They're also off-screen buddies, and their chemistry is pretty undeniable — just ask anyone who's seen Silver Linings Playbook. They've also co-starred in American Hustle, Joy and Serena, giving audiences plenty of chances to see them in action together. It's no wonder everyone's constantly wondering when they'll make it official.

But when Howard Stern asked Cooper that question, the answer was the same as it's ever been.

"When are you two going to have sex?" Stern asked during an interview with Cooper on his SiriusXM radio show.

"Never," Cooper immediately responded.

He continued on to explain it was director David O. Russell who first introduced the two.

"We did Silver Linings Playbook together. We got along great," Cooper explained. "It just didn’t happen. It’s not the way we are together."

40-year-old Cooper has previously said he can't date Lawrence because, in her early 20s, she's too young for him. But soon after making those comments, Cooper started dating 23-year-old model Suki Waterhouse.

"I said that once on the carpet as a diffuse thing and then it became a thing because the girl I was seeing was as young as she was," Cooper told Stern.

Cooper has since broken things off with Waterhouse and is now linked to 29-year-old supermodel Irina Shayk.
