Unsatisfiable celebrities Ladies: There shall henceforth be more Bradley Cooper for you all! Reports say he and English beauty Suki Waterhouse have agreed to part after two years of romance.

As you may recall, the two spectaculars sundered back in 1995, after Hugh unwisely elected to canoodle with prostitute Divine Brown in a car in L.A. and got nabbed in the, ah, act. Hugh and Hurl remain buds.
