KEY POINTS

  • Bradley Cooper never went outside his home during the quarantine period because of his mother
  • The "Hangover" actor was seen catching up with Jennifer Garner in Malibu in July
  • Cooper moved in with his parents in 2011 before his father succumbed to lung cancer

Bradley Cooper opened up about his quarantine routine with his nearly 80-year-old mom and 3-year-old daughter Lea during the pandemic, presumably weeks before his beach sighting with Jennifer Garner in Malibu.

Cooper and Anthony Ramos had a chat for Interview Magazine. During their conversation, the "A Star is Born" actor shared details about his quarantine life  with his mother and his child.

"I’m with my daughter and my mother and my two dogs, and we have not left the house. My mother is going to be 80, and she has a colostomy bag, so I can’t let anybody in the house. And I can’t leave the house, because if she gets it, it’s over,” Cooper said.

"We live in a little townhouse, thankfully there’s a backyard. I’m running a one-man preschool. We get up, we do swim class in the bathtub.”

The interview was seemingly conducted earlier this summer and before his public sightings. Cooper was spotted catching up with Garner in Malibu last month. Also, the "Hangover" actor has been seen out and about filming Paul Thomas Anderson's new movie, Entertainment Tonight reported.

Garner and Cooper’s beach sighting last month sparked romance rumors. However, sources close to the two stars quashed the speculations and insisted that they are just friends.

Shortly after Garner and Cooper’s outing made headlines, it was revealed that Garner and John Miller already broke up. An insider said the exes called it quits several months ago. Garner and Miller allegedly started seeing less and less of each other and eventually decided to part ways, but the two remain good friends.

Cooper has remained close to his mom. He moved in with his parents in 2011 before his father, Charles, succumbed to lung cancer.

"My family is very close, and my dad dying was brutal for all of us. It was a schism, and its aftershock has not stopped. And we need each other. So here we are … it's not like I live in a compound and she's in the guesthouse. No, she's in the next room," Cooper told Los Angeles Times in a previous interview.

"But here's the thing: she's a cool chick. We can hang, and she can roll with the punches."
