"People thought we were dating. It was all over the Internet. It was the first time I read a rumour like that about me, and I just thought it was fantastic," Contactmusic quoted him as telling the Independent. Cooper, 34, who is in a relationship with co-star Renee Zellweger, 40, says he is very happy with her. And even though he is a celeb today he admits he was not smart in school.
Cooper said: "I wasn't the smartest person in school, I wasn't the coolest kid. I really didn't have anything going on. I was fascinated by those sports jocks because they were so obviously a**eholes and didn't hide that fact. But they somehow had this power, that the rules of the universe didn't apply to them."
