Suki Waterhouse was quite the arm candy for the dapper actor whose movie American Hustle won for Best Ensemble Cast. Here’s what you need to know about the British fashionista who is known for her Sixties mod girl style.
1. The British Model Is on the Cover of Elle UK This Month
Elle asked Suki about her famous boyfriend, but the private bombshell didn’t say much:
I don’t talk about my boyfriend because it’s boring. At least, that’s what I decided to tell you when you asked.
The skinny starlet did confirm in the interview that she met the Hangover actor at the Elle Style Awards in February. The couple first caught the media’s attention as they were photographed leaving the ceremony in the same car.

During the same interview, she was quick to clarify how they first met:
That didn’t happen there. But we did meet at the Style Awards, I’ll give you that. Look, maybe it’s best for me to say, ‘I’m not one of those girls who goes on about their boyfriends.’ I do think whatever I say will sound weird. But the truth is, if I start talking about him, I probably won’t be able to stop. And I don’t really want to talk about him, you know?
2. The Stars Have Been Accused of a Sham Relationship
Waterhouse is 22, and some people are questioning the relationship.
A reporter, Alexis Rhiannon, at Crushable, found it very suspect that Suki didn’t give Elle any real details on her relationship. Rhiannon wrote:
What are you gonna talk about if not him? And if you don’t want to talk about him, then stop. Just stop it right there and don’t do it again. Definitely don’t talk about being ready to have kids at age twenty-one when your boyfriend who you don’t want to talk about is thirty-eight, okay?!?

3. When Suki Met Bradley, She Was Dating a Rocker
Causing much gossip, Suki was dating The Rascals’ former frontman Miles Kane when she was spotted with Cooper. When Kane, who now has a solo career, was asked by the Sun what he thought of her new relationship, he said:
The thing is, she is a 21-year-old girl and you forget how young she is. I don’t know how old he is – what, 40 or something like that? She is a young girl and I’m sure he’ll realise that.
Suki’s newest relationship is far from dating a rockstar. The couple dressed rather preppy for Wimbledon back in July, when Cooper famously took selfies with Gerard Butler and ignored his girlfriend.
Here are two tweets that show the bromance, while Suki just looks on:
No ones selfies will ever compare to Bradley Cooper's and Gerard Butler's. pic.twitter.com/IWJfK0QfkX

4. She Was Discovered at 16 at a Pub in London
I know it’s cool to pretend you don’t care. But I love fashion and I love clothes. I live my life in a sea of clothes. And it’s fantastic to be able to use them and play with them.
During London Men’s Fashion Week this month, Suki modeled Burberry’s Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection. She works for Next Model Management, which represents many big names in music and film. Lana Del Ray and Pharrell Williams are among the international company’s famous clients.
The starlet even blogs! In 2013, she contributed to Vogue, explaining what she wore every day for a month.
5. Her Dad Is a Famous Plastic Surgeon
I used to go into hospital with my dad and visit the reconstruction patients – and sometimes the cosmetic ones, too. I’ve got nothing against plastic surgery at all. I know lots of people, young and old, who’ve had it.
