Ooh la la!Bradley Cooper
was spotted out on the streets of Paris with stunning French actress Melanie Laurent on Monday night.
But perhaps the fluent French-speaking
actor – and PEOPLE's reigning Sexiest Man Alive
– was just working on his language skills.
Though they looked cozy after attending a short play together, the pair are simply friends, a source tells PEOPLE.
Cooper and Laurent, who had roles in Inglourious Basterds
and the more recent Beginners
, were bundled up and looked deep in conversation at times. – Sara Hammel
