Renee Zellweger shared a sweet moment with her ex-boyfriend Bradley Cooper at the 2020 Oscars on Sunday night. The former couple were pictured enjoying a catch up inside the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, some nine years after the end of their romance. Renee, 50, looked stunning in a silver one-shouldered gown, while Bradley, 45, was dapper in a tuxedo. The pair dated for around two years having met on the set of Case 39, and lived together for a few months before splitting in March 2011. Speaking about his then-girlfriend back in 2010, Bradley told E!: "I can't say enough about her. I just love her. I [loved] coming to work. I love acting with her. I can learn so much from her."
