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.

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?

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'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.

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.

NOTHING'S CONFIRMED yet, but it looks as if Bradley Cooper will be back in town Aug. 27 for an invite-only premiere of "The Words" at the Prince Music Theatre (1412 Chestnut St.). In the film, Cooper, a Rydal-raised graduate of Germantown Academy, plays an author who steals from an older writer and takes great lengths to try to cover his tracks. The film also features Dennis Quaid, Jeremy Irons and Cooper's former girlfriend Zoe Saldana and was co-written and co-directed by two of Cooper's childhood pals: Brian Klugman and Lee Sternthal, whose credits include "Tron: Legacy.

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.

STARS. Once again, they are so like us. Take Frank Ocean . Just like us, the R&B singer-songwriter bravely defied rap- and pop-music stereotypes, won a buncha Grammys and Grammy noms, and has become a household name. So, he's kinda like us. You know. Sorta. And, supercoincidentally, just like you and me, last July, Chipotle Mexican Grill advanced Ocean a paltry $212,500 to record a new version of "Pure Imagination" from "Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. " He didn't even have to write an original song.

  Debbie Reynolds-Mihos, 51, of Philadelphia, a co-owner of several area diners, including the Llanerch Diner of Silver Linings Playbook fame, died Saturday, Jan. 18, at her home. The cause of death was leiomyosarcoma, a rare form of soft tissue sarcoma. She was diagnosed in 2011, and underwent five regimens of chemotherapy over 21/2 years, her family said in a tribute. Despite daunting odds, she fought courageously to stay alive "for those she loved," her family said.

DAVID O. RUSSELL'S "American Hustle" is either a movie or a cast party for folks who starred in "Silver Linings Playbook" and "The Fighter. " Russell spins '70s tunes, and everybody parades around in goofy hair and loud clothes. Bradley Cooper has a perm, Jeremy Renner a pompadour, Christian Bale a comb-over and a toupee, which is something only Donald Trump could understand. Amy Adams has an array of see-through dresses and a British accent that comes off as quickly as her bra. All of this artifice, by the way, is by design.

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.

AW, THERE'S A REASON - despite the blockbusters and critical acclaim - that he'll always be "Rydal's own Bradley Cooper " to me. Cooper was in town this weekend to celebrate his 20-year high-school reunion with ol' chums at Germantown Academy. On Friday, he walked around the campus and caught up with old teachers, then headed to the reunion at MaGerks in Fort Washington (582 S. Bethlehem Pike). Cooper then stopped by the GA-Penn Charter football game, where Germantown Academy's Patriots triumphed, 42-35, ending a long losing streak against Penn Charter's Quakers.

HE'S GOT THE LEGS OF a 19-year-old. He is a 19-year-old. So how come intermittently inked, mega-pop-star Justin Bieber needed bodyguards to carry him on their shoulders up steps leading to a portion of China's Great Wall? Pants too baggy, Biebs? These strong men had to use their own burly shoulders, because, unfortunately, they did not think in advance to procure a gilded, silk-curtained, pillow-lined antique litter for transporting His Royal Biebsness in the manner to which he is accustomed.
