Bradley Cooper's Ex: 'I Worship Men'

Jonathan Wenk/CBS Films(NEW YORK) -- Following her breakup with Bradley Cooper, actress Zoe Saldana hasn’t given up on love.

“I worship men. Men are Adonises,” the 34-year-old beauty told InStyle UK.

In fact her ideal guy is a strong, sensitive type. “A bada** renegade! A pirate! A pirate who can cry. Oh, my God!” she told the magazine’s June edition.

The star of the upcoming film Star Trek Into Darkness has never confirmed nor denied her relationship with Cooper, though the pair were spotted off and on through 2012.

Instead Saldana prefers keeping her private life, well, private.

“It’s physically hard and it’s so unnatural for me to talk about certain intimate and private areas of my life, that I’m incapable, naturally incapable of saying anything remotely relating to this topic…” she told InStyle. “Literally, I’m sweating.”

She did, however, allude to her heartbreaking split with former fiance entrepreneur Keith Britton after 11 years together.

“When it didn’t work [with Britton] it was heartbreaking for the both of us, but it’s life,” Saldana said, adding that the breakup did not make her bitter about love. “I believe in love because I had it for so long, so I know it’s possible. I’m not one of these people who’s going, ‘Oh, because I was with someone for so long I need to take a break.’ What if love is just around the corner?”

Saldana is also unafraid of a little lust, acknowledging that women may think naughty thoughts even if they don’t talk about them. “We’re very, very filthy too,” she joked to the magazine.

“I’m tired of watching these 50-year-old actors with these 23-year-old actresses and they’re soul mates in the movie. What? [In real life] a 23-year-old would look at a 50-year-old and go, ‘Are you kidding me?!’” she added. “We love plump muscles as much as they do.”

The actress, 22, and the Jack the Giant Slayer star, 23, stepped out Monday for dinner at the Little Door restaurant in Hollywood. Despite their best attempts to slip out unnoticed, photographers managed to snap shots of the pair.

Lawrence, who is still sporting a new, shorter hairdo, was carrying a copy of Anna Karenina. She looked casual in a white, lace top and black blazer, while Hoult opted for dark pants and a green jacket.

The two met while filming X-Men: First Class, and are currently filming X-Men: Days of Future Past together.

Elin Nordegren, Tiger's Ex, Rumored to be Dating Billionaire

David Cannon/Getty Images(NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla.) -- Tiger Woods may be dating Lindsey Vonn,  but his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren, 33, may have snagged a billionaire.

Us Weekly and the New York Post are linking Nordegren to Chris Cline, her neighbor in North Palm Beach, Fla. He owns a 34,000-square-foot, ocean-front mansion next to the $12 million mansion Nordegren has been renovating.

According to Forbes, the 53-year-old Cline is the owner of coal producer Foresight Energy and is worth a reported $1.2 billion. A native of West Virginia, Cline comes from a coal-mining family — his grandfather once mined coal and his father bought out a mining partner’s share for $500,000 and gave it to Cline when he was 21, according to Forbes.

Nordegren last dated financier Jamie Dingman, the son of billionaire Michael Dingman. They broke off their relationship in January 2012, according to People.

Nordegren and Woods divorced in 2010 after he confessed to multiple affairs.

Woods recently announced that he is in a relationship with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn.

Is Russell Brand Dating Spice Girl Geri Halliwell?

Tommaso Boddi/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Russell Brand is going from a California gurl to a spice girl.  The Sun quotes a source as saying Brand and Geri Halliwell, aka Ginger Spice, are involved in a “very serious” romance.

The report says Brand fell for Halliwell while they both were attending rehearsals for the closing ceremonies of the London Olympics.

“I’ve got a crush on Geri Halliwell -- everything in the world is how it should be,” Brand said after the finale.

The Sun says the actor dumped Isabella Brewster, the younger sister of Dallas and Fast & Furious actress Jordana Brewster, earlier this month so he could be with Halliwell.  Brand and Katy Perry divorced earlier this year.

The Sun reports Brand and Halliwell have gone on a number of dates, including an outing this past weekend that included the 40-year-old Spice Girl’s 6-year-old daughter, Bluebell Madonna.

A close friend of the 37-year-old Brand tells the tabloid, “Things are getting very serious between them --they’re a proper couple now.  They had met several times in the past, but really got to know each other during the Olympics.”

The pal continues, “They just clicked -- they have so much in common.  He is spending so much more time in London just to be with her.”

Halliwell appears to have changed her view of Brand since an encounter backstage at a 2008 Spice Girls show when she declared, “He’s really funny and intelligent but not the type of man I go for.” 

Halliwell said of Brand’s appearance, “I’d love to shave off all that crazy hair.”

Jennie Garth Bounces Back with New Man

Michael Buckner/Getty Images for PCA(LOS ANGELES) -- Just two months after her divorce from Peter Facinelli after 11 years of marriage, Jennie Garth appears to be bouncing back.

The actress was spotted walking hand-in-hand with a mystery man as they left the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood. Sources confirmed to People magazine that the mystery man is photographer Noah Abrams. The couple met through mutual friends and are casually dating, according to People.

Abrams’ work has appeared in Vanity Fair, Sports Illustrated and Rolling Stone, according to his website. In his downtime he likes riding motorcycles and eating ice cream, his website says.

Facinelli filed for divorce March 28 citing “irreconcilable differences.” The former couple has three daughters together and the family often called themselves the “Facinelli Five.”

“I tried everything I could to save our marriage … I was very resistant. I didn’t want it to happen,” Garth, 40, told People magazine about the split.

Garth has slimmed down significantly since the split. The actress told In Touch magazine that fellow Beverly Hills, 90210 alum Luke Perry has helped her cope with the divorce.

“Luke has been one of my friends who I can call and talk about stuff and has been through something himself,” Garth told In Touch. Perry went through his own divorce in 2003.
