The Hollywood star is said to have "politely declined" Taylor's offer of a dinner date together.

Taylor Swift has allegedly been turned down for a date with Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper, after fresh rumours she asked celeb pal Jennifer Lawrence to set them up.

The 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer split from One Direction star Harry Styles earlier this month after a brief romance, and is said to have asked Hunger Games actress Jennifer to sound out her Silver Linings Playbook co-star about a potential date.

"Bradley has absolutely no intention of getting together with Taylor," a source revealed to Radar Online this week. "He thinks she's far too young for him and wants to date someone his own age, not 16 years younger, because he's ready for something serious.

"It was a little awkward for Bradley [because] Jennifer came to him and told him that Taylor was interested in getting together," the source explained. "He had to politely decline, knowing full well that Jennifer and Taylor are friends."
