Publicist’s wet dream as BRADLEY COOPER shoots down boy-crazy TAYLOR SWIFT via gal pal JENNIFER LAWRENCE.   

Taylor reportedly asked Hunger Games/Silver Linings sweetheart and reputed pal Jen to introduce to her co-star Coop.

The (always) single (after a brief shining moment of dating someone) country cutie,Taylor, 23,  desperately wanted to date the Hangover hunkster and begged Jennifer, 22, to set up them up.

BUT — oh no! —  when Jennifer sounded Bradley, 38, out about Taylor he said he wasn’t interested and that she was too young for him!

“Bradley has absolutely no intention of getting together with Taylor,” a source told

 “First of all, her reputation precedes her. Bradley is very wary of dating someone who is a bit of a serial dater like Taylor.

“He thinks she’s far too young for him and wants to date someone his own age, not 16-years younger because he’s ready for something serious. It was a little awkward for Bradley . Jennifer came to him and told him that Taylor was interested in getting together.

“He had to politely decline, knowing full well that Jennifer and Taylor are friends.

 “It was an ambitious move from Taylor, but she’s going to have fixate on someone else as Bradley’s just NOT that into her,” the source divulged.

Oh well… NEXT!
