The couple that "never confirmed" they were doing it on a regular basis have now allegedly parted ways after two entire years of not reportedly dating.

People magazine offered: "Although the pair never officially confirmed their relationship, they were frequently spotted out together and Cooper has been vocal about his feelings. 'I can't say enough about her,' he said in September while promoting the couple's film Case 39. 'I just love her. I [loved] coming to work. I love acting with her. I can learn so much from her.' Zellweger even skipped the Golden Globes in January at the last minute to be with Cooper when his father died. She was also close to Cooper's mom, Gloria."

As to the reason behind their split, that's anyone's guess. I'm going with "Good news, honey, I don't have to pile on the pounds for the third Bridget Jones film! They're willing for her to be an unrealistic depiction of the female form, isn't that swell?! Or not, as the case may be *chortles*. Bridget Jones? Yeah, honey, that was me in Bridget Jones, I thought you knew! Yep, the second one was a laugh riot, what with the singing scene in the Thai women's prison. Here, I have it on DVD somewhere; I'll go get it for you........................ Here it is honey... Bradley? Hun? Bradleeeeeey, coo-eee? Ah rats."

By the by, this news is breaking on the same week Cooper's latest film, Limitless, is being released. What "timing."
