LOOKING at the Oscar nominations, it's hard to tell whether "American Sniper" helped Bradley Cooper, or Cooper helped the movie. The Jenkintown native's best-actor nod for "Sniper" was his third acting nomination in just three years - his fourth overall, since he helped produce "American Sniper" and shares in its best-picture nomination. This year his magic touch appears to have helped the movie, which nabbed six Academy Award nominations despite a very low awards-season profile (the movie opens here today)

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. He was in a pair of little movies called "The Hangover" and "The Hangover Part II. " Also starred in a flick called "The A Team. " Last year, an obscure publication that calls itself People magazine dubbed him the "Sexiest Man Alive. " Ring a bell? Anything? "The Words' " writer-directors, Lee Sternthal and Brian Klugman, grew up in Dresher and Lower Moreland, respectively.

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.

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.

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.

Bradley Cooper, the screen idol from Rydal with the laser-blue eyes, has signed a two-year development deal with Warner Bros. Cooper, 37, who was named People magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive' in November, will give the film giant first-look at any movies created by his production company, 22 & Indiana, according to Variety. Cooper's company name appears to be an allusion to the intersection in North Philadelphia where his father grew up. "We're very happy to take our relationship with Bradley to the next level," said Warners chief Jeff Robinov in a statement.

IT WAS A BIG DAY for Philadelphia on the national gossip scene yesterday. Entertainment Weekly reported that former Daily News intern Bradley Cooper is going to play "The Elephant Man" on Broadway this fall. He previously played the role two years ago at the Williamstown Theatre Festival. It will be Coop's first time on Broadway since 2006, when he appeared in "Three Days of Rain" with Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd . Cooper will most likely get all uglied up to play the deformed John Merrick , who lashes out at people who judge him only by his hideous appearance.

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.

Every televised contest comes with its big opinions and bigger questions. (What was the most shocking moment of the Super Bowl: the Patriots' last-minute interception or that weird dancing shark? What was wrong with Kanye West at the Grammys and why do they keep inviting him back?) Certainly the same is true of the 87th annual Academy Awards, which air on ABC at 8 p.m. Sunday, preceded by an E! Network red-carpet watch at 6. Will Oscar voters go for Michael Keaton or Eddie Redmayne as best actor?

TWO MONTHS ago, picking Oscar winners looked easy - as easy as it looked last year, when I correctly picked the winners of the major categories. (Of course, so did nearly everybody else, but let's not dwell on that.) Since then, a couple of things happened, including "American Sniper. " The movie won a bunch of nominations, and became a box-office and cultural phenomenon, precisely the kind of movie the Oscars were trying to embrace when the Academy expanded the number of Best Picture nominees.

THEY SAY it's what's on the inside that counts. That's what Gwyneth Paltrow said, anyway. The actor and daughter of proud Philadelphian Blythe Danner spoke on Howard Stern 's SiriusXM show yesterday. Gwynnie contended that her early affairs with Brad Pitt and Ben Affleck were basically looks-based. "When you're in your 20s, you can get swept up in [looks]," the Goop goddess explained to the King of All Media, as if a superficial mind-set was new to Stern. The confession did wonders for Paltrow's too-good-for-you image, yet left us wondering: That makes ex-husband Chris Martin not hot, then?

Things just got real for the Real Housewives. As you may have heard, Joe Giudice and his wife, Teresa, who is one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo, are going to jail for bankruptcy fraud. I'm going to miss Teresa, whose lack of anger management was a thing of beauty. She famously turned over a table in anger, and I don't know a single woman in the world who hasn't dreamed of doing that, or at least being the kind of woman who would do that, on impulse. By the way, when she flipped the table, she yelled "prostitution whore," which is a great thing to yell at any time.

  STING   isn't the only celebrity not leaving his fortune to his kids. Citing court documents, the New York Post reports that Philip Seymour Hoffman , who died in February of a drug overdose, refused to set aside money for his three children (ages 5, 7 and 10) because he did not want them "to be considered 'trust fund' kids. " Hoffman instead left his estimated $35 million fortune to his children's mother, his longtime girlfriend. According to his accountant, David Friedman , Hoffman believed O'Donnell would "take care of the children," which does seem like a reasonable belief.

Last week I wrote about a villain. Today I'm writing about a hero. And an incredibly good-looking one, which figures into the story, as you will see. We begin Sunday morning, when I meet my bestie Franca for a bike ride. We've been friends through 30 years, and between us we have four divorces, a nice even number. We love to do things together and are very much alike, except Franca is an incredible athlete and runs five miles every day. That would be the end of the similarity.
