They were married only six months, but it sounds like Jennifer Esposito’s marriage to Bradley Cooper had a negative impact on her.
Their marriage was very short, but a new book by Jennifer Esposito is implying it made a very negative impact on her life. The actress’ new memoir, Jennifer’s Way, takes a harsh look at a guy she once dated. Could it be ex-husband Bradley Cooper? That’s what The New York Daily News seems to think.
While a majority of the book deals with her health issues surrounding her celiac disease diagnosis, she does talk about her personal life midway through the book. Esposito writes about accepting a date with a man even though there was “an entire marching band squad of red flags” warning her to stay away.
The former Blue Bloods actress never names the suitor, but she described him as “funny, smart, cocky, arrogant and a master manipulator,” and that she didn’t “necessarily find him that attractive.”
She also revealed a dark side to him. Once they began dating seriously, the man had a “mean, cold side” and “his personality could flip on a dime.”
The 41-year-old star shared, “I became very sad and I felt very alone.”
The relationship came to an end after she attended a seminar at the Agape International Spiritual Center in Los Angeles.
She wrote, “Within days, my relationship hit an all-time low, and within a week it was over. Abruptly, rudely, and with the exact callousness that I’d come to expect from him.”
The reason the New York periodical thinks Esposito is talking about Cooper is because of the time frame. After the end of the relationship, she jumps right into getting cast in Christina Applegate’s sitcom Samantha Who? in 2007. She was married to the American Hustle star from December 2006 to May 2007.
The only thing Cooper has ever said about the marriage was to Howard Stern in 2011. He said, “It was just something that happened. The good thing, we both realized it… Sometimes you just realize it. It just wasn’t right.”
