‘I’ve been trying to get her dates for a long time,’ said Jessica, revealing she had even posted her grandmother’s picture to Match.com.

‘I worked with Al Pacino. She was very excited about that. I took a picture of the two of them together and it was on her bedside table,’ the actress dished.

She recalled that ‘a few years ago I had a party at my house and Bradley Cooper was there. And my grandmother is now at the age where she just really doesn’t care, you know? She’s just like: “I’m gonna just do whatever I want.”‘

Jessica revealed that ‘in the middle of the party’ her grandmother ‘just walked over to Bradley and just like sat on his lap.’

The Zero Dark Thirty star dished: ‘And he was horrified actually! He had never met her. He didn’t know who she was.’

Jessica herself moved to stop her grandmother and after failing to do so began repeatedly telling Bradley: ‘It’s my grandma!’

Bradley, who apparently still had a somewhat alarmed look on his face, then began saying: ‘Okay! Okay! Hi, Grandma!’

All the way back in 2013 Jessica and Bradley co-starred on an episode of Zach Galifianakis’ satirical talk show Between Two Ferns.

In 2020 Jessica, who started an online cookery show with Marilyn amid the coronavirus lockdowns, said she was trying to fix her grandmother up.

‘She’s an amazing person, but I still haven’t found her a man,’ said Jessica on The Graham Norton Show during December of that year.

‘She’s a total catch and I’ve been posting pictures of her exercising with me – she is very fit!’ the Oscar-nominated actress insisted.
