Bradley Cooper Steps Out in Paris with Actress Melanie Laurent

Is the reigning Sexiest Man Alive snuggling up to a new sexy lady in the City of Lights? Bradley Cooper was spotted on the romantic streets of Paris with gorgeous French actress Melanie Laurent on Monday night.

A fluent French speaker (ooh la la!), the hunky Hangover 2 star, 36, reportedly went to a short play with the Parisian beauty, 28, and then hung out with her in her hometown.

So who is Laurent? She's best known to American audiences as the vengeful cinema owner in Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds (and in real life, the Jewish actress' grandfather escaped Nazi deportation during the Holocaust.) She has also generated award buzz this year with her performance in Beginners opposite Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer.

The multi-talented Laurent is also a singer (who released her first album earlier this year), a writer and a short-film director.

But despite reports that they looked deep in conversation together, the two are just friends, a source says.

It's too bad, because Cooper and Laurent would make a stunning international couple!
