Ooh la la!

Bradley Cooper was spotted out on the streets of Paris with stunning French actress Melanie Laurent on Monday night.

But perhaps the fluent French-speaking actor – and PEOPLE’s reigning Sexiest Man Alive – was just working on his language skills.

Though they looked cozy after attending a short play together, the pair are simply friends, a source tells PEOPLE.

Cooper and Laurent, who had roles in Inglourious Basterds and the more recent Beginners, were bundled up and looked deep in conversation at times.
