Bradley Cooper smiles when reunited with his ex-girlfriend Irina Shayk at the Met Gala… after hanging out with Emma Stone
Bradley Cooper looked single and ready to mingle in a black suit at the Met Gala in NYC on Monday evening.
But during the event, the Nightmare Alley actor spent some special time with his ex-girlfriend and baby mama Irina Shayk; together they share daughter Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper, age five.
The former power couple were pictured arm-in-arm as they caught up with Nicki Minaj and fashion designer Riccardo Tisci.

Cooper arrived alone in a black Louis Vuitton suit with a crisp white shirt and no tie. He also had a fuzzy week old beard making him look casually classic.
And while at the splashy event, the star was seen chatting up Emma Stone and Cynthia Erivo.

This sighting comes after Cooper said he has a ‘crazy’ work ethic.
The 47-year-old actor admits that his passionate approach to work can occasionally make life difficult for some of his co-stars.
Bradley – who has starred in films such as ‘American Sniper’, ‘A Star Is
Born’, and the ‘Hangover’ franchise – explained: ‘Love equals discipline. If I love something, I can have the discipline.

‘I have a crazy work ethic. That is definitely true. So much so that the jobs that I have taken in the last five or six years, the people that I’ve worked with, I have said, ‘I work really hard, and this isn’t going to be easy.’ And it’s because I love it so much.’
Bradley dreamed of working in the movie industry during his younger years.
And he’s now desperate to make the most of every opportunity that comes his way.
The Hollywood star told Variety: ‘The thing that I just cannot live with myself is if I didn’t use that time to work as hard as I could to get it to the best place it could be. I grew up with this idea that we do what we do for a living; I dreamt it.’
Bradley suggested he’s already surpassed his own career expectations.
However, he doesn’t have any intention of slowing down anytime soon and his passion for making movies remains as strong as ever.
He shared: ‘I don’t know if I ever dreamt this big. I don’t even know if I allowed myself to. Shame on me if I don’t work hard, and I’m here now. I’m not going to squander this. No way, man. No way. It all comes from love.’
