T AYLOR SWIFT will never get to write a breakup song about Bradley Cooper . The Rydal boy rebuffed her before she had the chance. Swift asked best gal pal, Jennifer Lawrence , who starred with Cooper in the Delco-set "Silver Linings Playbook," to hook her up with the recently Oscar-nominated actor, according to RadarOnline. But Cooper, ever the classy one, turned down the offer because the 23-year-old Swift is far too young for him. Cooper turned 38 this month.

NOW THAT Philadelphia native Bradley Cooper has gone from popular supporting actor to movie star, thanks to "The Hangover," it was only a matter of time before he was linked to a movie-star girlfriend. He might as well start at the top. According to Star magazine, Bradley is "On! On! On!" with Jennifer Aniston. Yes, they could just be friends from "He's Not That Into You," but that's no fun. Not when they could be "On! On! On!" The "It Couple" du jour reportedly dined together at Manhattan's Il Cantinori on June 18 and the sparks, of course, flew.

THE NEW MOVIE "The Words" was directed and written by a trio of childhood friends. One of the friends is named Bradley Cooper. Maybe you've heard of him. He's from Rydal.

IT'S NICE TO FIND somebody happy in his own skin. Actor Bradley Cooper is that guy. He sat in the executive dining room at the NovaCare Center on Wednesday, and he giggled when he recalled meeting Eagles LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson an hour before. He is an Eagles fan, unabashed and delighted. He is People magazine's Sexiest Man emeritus (actor Channing Tatum unseated him Wednesday), a designation that cemented him in the American consciousness. He is the lead in "Silver Linings Playbook," a romantic comedy set in Philadelphia and centered on the Eagles, that premieres Friday in limited release.

Growing up in Jenkintown, Bradley Cooper lived and died with the Eagles. So he was quite at home in Silver Linings Playbook, which stars Cooper as the troubled Pat Solitano and Robert De Niro as his Eagles-obsessed father. During his youth, Cooper said, he and his own father, who has since died, were drawn together by the Eagles. "Anytime you can make a connection with your own life and your role, it's a great thing," Cooper, 37, said during an interview Wednesday at the Eagles' practice facility in South Philadelphia.

AFTER INTERVIEWING Bradley Cooper at a suburban office building, I took the elevator down to the lobby where the doors opened to a crowd of anxious young women. They were holding cell-phone cameras at the ready, and made no attempt to conceal their dismay when they saw that I was not handsome Brad. Clearly, Cooper is a celebrity now. He draws stares and crowds wherever he goes. He recently moved from Venice, Calif., to a gated community in the Pacific Palisades to get away from the paparazzi, in hot pursuit now that he's dating Renée Zellweger.

WATCH OUT, Flyers. Heartthrob David Boreanaz will be hanging out with your wives come January. I've learned exclusively that the "Bones" actor, and son of legendary Philly weatherman Dave Roberts , will be the co-chair of the Flyers Wives Fight for Lives Carnival, coming to the Wells Fargo Center on Jan. 26. Boreanaz will not only help out with the festivities (fingers crossed he'll be a dunk-tank volunteer), he'll attend them as well, including the Broad Street Bash at Xfinity Live on Jan. 25. Boreanaz is a lifelong Flyers fan, a passion that has bled into his "Bones" alter ego Seeley Booth.

In the irresistibly of-the-moment thriller "Limitless," everybody's chasing an underground drug that functions as Viagra for the brain. Better, actually, because if you have a brilliant idea that lasts for more than four hours, you don't have to seek medical attention. And even if you did need medical attention, your super-enhanced brain could probably read the relevant texts, make its own diagnosis, and prescribe proper treatment. The drug, called NZT, is a black market test product that fate places in the hands of a blocked novelist named Eddie Morra (Bradley Cooper)
