Apparently, The Bridget Jones' Diary star found Cooper extremely funny and sweet. When a restaurant patron told the actress she had a cute date, she giggled, "He's sweet, really sweet," the New York Daily News reports.
Both stars also tried to make sure that their conversations were not overheard and avoided the paparazzi by leaving the restaurant separately. The actress was overheard saying, "Do you mind if I go first? I'll see you in a little bit."
