Two attractive, single actors work together on a movie and eventually a romance builds. Isn't that how it usually goes? Apparently, that isn't always the case.

Even though Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence both fit the criteria with Silver Linings Playbook, Cooper kind of shot down any possibility of a relationship while talking with Entertainment Tonight at the Golden Globes on Sunday. “If it didn’t happen by now, it’s not gonna happen," Bradley said. Hmm. The 38-year-old actor followed that up by saying, “I could literally be her father.”

Hey, what's a 16-year age difference? Well, a lot. But in the end, age ain't nothing but a number. So, the jury's still out on this one.
