Peaches & Herb were right: reuniting does feel good. Jennifer Garner and Bradley Cooper were recently spotted having dinner together, exciting Alias fans who realized that the former costars teamed up again — even if it was just for dinner.
The Love, Simon actress, 46, and the Hangover star, 44, were seen having a meal together at Jennifer’s house on Sunday, March 3. They were joined by Bradley’s girlfriend, Irina Shayk, their 1-year-old daughter, Lea De Seine, and the Oscar-nominated actor’s mom, Gloria.
Bradley and Jennifer worked together on the popular ABC spy show from 2001 to 2006. The A Star Is Born star played Will Tippin, a journalist and a pal to Jennifer’s character, Sydney Bristow. And it’s no surprise but the pair have actually remained good friends since their time on Alias. It was even once reported that Ben Affleck‘s ex-wife has spent a ton of time in the kitchen teaching Bradley how to cook.
“They’ve spent hours making Italian food, like fresh pasta and sauce, meatballs, and pizza from scratch,” a source told In Touch Weekly at the time. While the director did spend some time cooking on the set of his 2015 film Burnt, “due to his hectic schedule it didn’t take long for the novelty to wear off,” the insider added.
Jennifer “has always been passionate about food, so she’s perfect to learn from,” the source continued, adding, “Cooking comes naturally to her — she could certainly give Martha Stewart a run for her money. So Bradley is in good hands.”
It’s been more than 10 years since the duo were on Alias together, and today it’s clear that their careers have taken big turns. Jennifer continues to snag roles left and right, also adding two more kids along the way — Seraphina, 10, and Samuel, 7 — after giving birth to her first child, Violet, back in 2005. As for Bradley, he has only gone on to become one of the biggest actors on the planet, reeling in seven total Oscar nominations.
But it’s always good to remember where you came from.
