Soon after his divorce, Cooper rebounded with Cameron Diaz.

However, just when there was talk about wedding bells ringing for these two, they broke up after two years of dating.
The Avatar actress’ reps claimed that she and Cooper were only “friends.” But when the number of paparazzi snaps of the couple locking lips on dates grew, they had to come clean. They didn’t last long either and they parted amicably. Saldana spoke about their breakup, “I was finally able to spend time without being in a relationship, and even though it was a short period of time, it was beautiful. Where I lost that fear of being alone. It was bliss.”
Cooper met the young model at the Elle Style Awards in 2013 and asked her out the same night. Waterhouse is 17 years his junior, but that didn’t seem to pose a problem —at first. He reportedly broke up with her because of their age difference. It has been said that he wanted to have kids while she wanted to focus on her career before thinking about having a family.
