On-screen and rumored off-screen couple Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana hit the red carpet for the premiere of their thriller flick, The Words, Friday.

So, did the sexiest man alive and his lady love finally heat things up in public at Sundance? 

Not at all.

But the duo did dish on what they were doing in Park City, Utah, leading up to their big night at the film festival (separately, of course).

And Saldana, who is slated to present at the SAG awards Sunday, made sure to get plenty of rest.  

"I completely relaxed," the Avatar star, who looked dashing in Alexander McQueen, told E! News. "I have to go back to work Monday so I came here...and even though I came for the amazing celebration of selling ‘The Words' here at Sundance, I still have to rest to go back to work."

And while the starlet stayed mum on what she'll don for the SAG awards, she did let us in on how she gets red-carpet ready. 

"I leave it to my stylist," Saldana went on. "She picks out the outfits and I just blindly put them on. So I think she's working diligently on finding the best outfit for Sunday."

Cooper, who sported a blazer and thick gray scarf for the occasion (and some very gnarly facial hair) was in the mood for action prior to the premiere, opting for the slopes rather than days of relaxation.

"I skied for the first time three weeks ago and I went up to Deer Valley and skied and I loved it. I didn't fall yet. I fell the first time but not this time," Cooper said.

But, seriously, what's up with Cooper's thick 'stache?

"This is for a role," Cooper said with a chuckle. "I could lie, but it's for this movie called Serena with Jen Lawrence in a couple of weeks."

And speaking of roles, Cooper said he was very excited to be in The Words, mainly because it is a film that his friends developed.

"I'm so happy for this movie," Cooper went on. "My friends Lee [Sternthal] and Brian [Klugman] created it and directed it…That I could be a part of it is awesome. It's the reason why you do this stuff in the first place. So I'm very excited."

When it came to discussing his experience working with Saldana on the flick, though, Cooper played coy, simply saying, "It was great. The whole cast was incredible."

The thriller flick, which scored bragging rights when it became the first major sale of Sundance last Sunday, tells the story of a young author who plagiarizes from a forgotten manuscript and later pays the price.
