These two stars—People's Sexiest Man and Avatar's blue beauty Neytiri—sure would make for a crazy-hot couple, right?

And now reports are swirling that Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana have gone from costars to real-life lovebirds.

So are they?

No, sorry.

"They are not dating," Saldana's rep tells me. "They are just friends."

The two are costarring in the upcoming indie flick, The Words. Cooper plays a successful writer who claims another man's long-lost work as his own. The film also costars Olivia Wilde, Jeremy Irons and Dennis Quaid.

At the same time, Cooper is also being linked to Melanie Laurent, the French actress known in the U.S. for Inglourious Basterds and this year's awards season favorite, Beginners.

The two were photographed together in Paris. Us Weekly reports they enjoyed some lunch and theater in the afternoon followed by dinner at his hotel Plaza Athenee. Reps for Cooper and Laurent did not immediately comment for this story.

Romance or not, at least Cooper gets to practice his French.
