Nothing to see here except Bradley Cooper being all adorable and stuff.

The Silver Linings Playbook Oscar nominee and his cast got serious when they stopped by Katie, but Ms. Couric also brought out a softer, sillier—we repeat: adorable—side when she asked him about being single.

We don't even care that Bradley didn't dish any dirt, because this reaction:

Was perfect.

For the record, Bradley explained the tabloid interest in his dating life, saying, "I vacillate between being fascinated by it and also being like, 'Ah, it's a real bummer!'"

Now for a double dose of adorableness, the single star revealed his Oscar date: his mom!

"I am taking Gloria!" he proudly announces. "Although a couple days ago she threatened not to go. Because there's scrutiny; it's rough. I said, 'Look, you can't let that bother us.' I mean, my father passed away two years ago, and the idea that I'm going to the Oscars nominated with Daniel Day-Lewis and Hugh Jackman and Denzel Washington and Joaquin Phoenix—let's enjoy every second of this!"

All together now: Aww! Well, Ms. Gloria, we cannot wait to see you on the carpet!
