He's never talked about his personal life in the media, and he also hasn't ever addressed rumors that he's gay. So, the rumor mill carries on.
Cooper actually has never been in a public relationship, gay or straight, that we know of. But, Out magazine ranked him second on their list of the "Most Powerful Gay Men
and Women in America" one year, even though he's never responded to rumors that he's gay.
Still, that hasn't stopped entertainment reporters from trying. Cooper has been linked to Benjamin Maisani, the owner of a gay bar in New York. Gawker reports that he's a "nice guy" who loves to work out, and who started dating Cooper in late 2008.
As we mentioned before, however, it's unlikely that reports about Maisani or Cooper's hypothetical girlfriend would ever be verified, since he's so private about his personal life. Guess we'll all just have to keep guessing, whilst admiring those icy blue eyes.
