Bradley Cooper, who received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor this year, says he already knows who he'll have on his arm on the red carpet.
The nomination--for his role in "Silver Linings Playbook" opposite Jennifer Lawrence--was just announced last week, but Cooper says he has a standing date: his mom.
"Oh yeah, that was done," he said. "One night, when I started the profession, [my mom said], 'If you ever [get nominated], I am the date.'"
Since news broke earlier this month that Cooper is now a single man again, one of Hollywood's most eligible bachelors is garnering rumors of a romance with his "Silver Linings" co-star, which he adamantly denies, saying he's old enough to be her father.
"We've done two movies together," he said. "If it didn't happen by now, it's not going to happen."
