  • Actors Jennifer Garner and Bradley Cooper, with Cooper's daughter, Lea De Seine Shayk Cooper, were spotted hanging out at the beach in Malibu, according to TMZ.

  • In the released photos, Garner can be seen building a sandcastle with Cooper's daughter, while Cooper lies out in the sun.

  • The former Alias co-stars are understood to be single, but they reportedly just hung out as friends.

Update 8/10/20:

Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Garner are merely good friends, according to Us Weekly.

After the two actors and former costars were photographed at a Malibu beach together with Cooper's daughter, romance rumors quickly began to circulate. A source confirmed to Us, however, that the pair's relationship is strictly platonic and has been since their Alias days.

"They are friends and have been forever," a source told the outlet.

As for Garner and her ex-boyfriend John Miller, the two reportedly had an amicable split, breaking up due to Garner not being ready to commit to marriage again. Garner was previously married to actor Ben Affleck, and the two share three children together.

"[John] was ready for marriage and she just couldn't commit," an insider said. "They parted on very amicable terms."

Though there's no way to confirm whether the beach day for the two actors was a casual hang or something more intimate, both Cooper and Garner are recently single, per the outlet. Cooper's previous relationship with model Irina Shayk ended last summer, while Garner has reportedly broken up with her boyfriend, John Miller, after two years of dating. Garner was previously married to actor Ben Affleck with whom she shares three children, Violet, Seraphina Rose, and Samuel Garner Affleck.

Much like Garner and Affleck, Cooper actively co-parents with his ex, and the two have remained close while staying committed to raising their daughter together.

"They have a good system in place for Lea and they take turns with her," a source previously told E! News. "They also come together as a family and do things when they can. They communicate a lot and are good friends."
