Jennifer Garner and Bradley Cooper recently sparked dating rumors after they were spotted hanging out at the beach.

The outing was also quite timely because it took place right after it was confirmed that Garner and John Miller already split. The exes were together for two years.

TMZ published a photo of Cooper and Garner on the beach, which proved that they really hung out. But the celebrity gossip cop went a notch further by saying that the A-listers flirted with each other.

Unfortunately, there was no indication that Cooper and Garner flirted with each other. Photos show that they sat a few inches away from each other. And there was no indication that they hugged, kissed, or even just held hands.

A source also told Page Six that Cooper and Garner are nothing more than friends. In fact, the two celebrities are quite close that’s why it’s not surprising for them to hang out publicly.

“Cooper and Garner are friends and have been forever. No truth to anything else,” the source said.

Years ago, Garner talked about her friendship with Cooper and said that she was one of his first friends in Hollywood.

While speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Ben Affleck’s ex-wife said that Cooper has been to her home. And she has also cooked dinner for him.

“I know the heart and stomach of Bradley Cooper. Bradley, what’s happening to you now is a pure joy to those who know you, especially to those of us who’ve known you from the start. It turns out you weren’t just handsome all along. You were also a wonder, and you are welcome at my table anytime,” she said.

Meanwhile, another source told Us Weekly that Garner and Miller decided to call it quits after they reached a dead end in their relationship.

Miller was reportedly ready to settle down with Garner, but she just couldn’t commit to him long-term. As such, they decided that it would be best if they just went their separate ways.

“They parted on amicable terms,” the source said.

According to National Enquirer, Garner’s main priority is still her three kids. In fact, the actress has allegedly been declining $50 million offers to star in TV shows and movies because she wants to spend time with her kids.

Garner has also been spending time with her kids during the coronavirus pandemic. And she reportedly wouldn’t want it any other way.
