It made for a romantic image: Jennifer Aniston meeting with Bradley Cooper for a Washington D.C. rendezvous as a follow-up to their “just friends” New York dinner in June in New York.

Only one problem.

“It didn’t happen, they were not there together,” says a rep for Cooper, 34, throwing cold water on the Capitol hookup reports that have circulated online. “Bradley was there on a stop-over from his USO tour.”

Cooper isn’t the only one busy denying a romance with Aniston, 40. Her costar in The Bounty, Gerard Butler, 39, recently blasted such rumors, calling them “just annoying.”
