When your odds of scoring a date with Bradley Cooper are slim to none, don't lose heart. Get a cutout!
That's the strategy of Danielle Davies, an enterprising mom who has taken to adventuring with a life-size cardboard cutout of Bradley Cooper and documenting the entertaining adventures on her blog, "My Life With Bradley Cooper."
Here's Davies' response to the obvious question: "Why?"
Because, friends, this is America. So why not? The fact is, while most of us don't actually live our lives with movie stars, many of us wish we did. And so, being a forward thinking American, I have taken the bull by the horns, the horse by the reigns [sic], the cardboard cutout of Bradley Cooper by the shoulders, and just pretended that I do.
"Bradley Cooper was not harmed in the taking of these photos," a disclaimer at the bottom of her blog notes. "Nor was he consulted. This entire site is completely unauthorized."
In an email to The Huffington Post, Davies said she went with Cooper, instead of other male celebs like Ryan Gosling, because she attended college with him. She also said she was once in a play with the now-famous actor.
As for fending off a potentially jealous husband, she says her hubby, Ed, "is awesome ... totally supportive [and] thinks it's funny."
Davies says she's working on a book for the project and hopes -- should Cooper see this -- that the actor likes the pictures.
