Sorry, Jennifer Lawrence, but Bradley Cooper's just not that into you. But don't take it personally -- he's just not that into younger women in general.

This week the 38-year-old "Silver Linings Playbook" star struck down rumours that his on-screen romance with Lawrence, with whom he also stars in the upcoming "Serena," had developed off screen.

"Oh, my God. That's very funny. No, my God. No," Cooper told Entertainment Tonight. "We've done two movies together. If it didn't happen by now, it's not going to happen."

Cooper, who is 16 years older than 22-year-old Lawrence, added, "I could be her father."

The stars are both single at the moment, with Lawrence having recently broken up with British actor Nicholas Hoult, and Cooper having split from on-off again girlfriend Zoe Saldana.

If he were on the prowl, it's unlikely that Cooper would go for a younger woman, considering his history of girlfriends. Though Saldana is four years younger than him, his previous girlfriends have mostly been older.

Cooper's last lady love before Saldana was none other than Jennifer Lopez, who is five years his senior. The duo reportedly dated briefly in the fall of 2011 before Lopez settled in another younger man's arms, those of 24-year-old Casper Smart.

Prior to the "I'm Into You" singer, Cooper dated another actress who was five years older than him: Renee Zellweger. The pair reportedly met on the set of "Case 29" in 2006 and were together for five years (and might have even lived together), though they never confirmed it. Rumour has it they broke up when the actor hit the A-list.

Then there was Cooper's relationship with 40-year-old "Bad Teacher" star Cameron Diaz, but their union in 2007 was reportedly only a fling, perhaps a rebound from one of Cooper's most high-profile relationships to date.

In December 2006, he wed "Blue Bloods" actress Jennifer Esposito, who is one year older than Cooper. But their marriage was short-lived, and they reportedly split after only four months.

Meanwhile, at the Weinstein Company's Golden Globes after party on Sunday night, Cooper was seen in a tete-a-tete with Anne Fulenwider, the editor-in-chief of Marie Claire magazine. We wonder how old she is?
