Bradley Cooper is single and one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actors, yet the 36-year-old still lives with his mother. Yep, he’s a mommy’s boy. The actor tells Esquire magazine, “I love having her. I wouldn't have it any other way.” Cooper could actually win a Son of the Year award as his mom moved into his Los Angeles home after his father recently died. Before that, the Hangover actor lived with parents in Philadelphia for five months before his father passed away. What a saint! [Esquire]

Study Reveals “Happy Smiling Men” Less Attractive to Women

Want to score with the ladies? You’re going to have to wipe that smile off your face. According to a new study from scientists at the University of British Columbia, “Happy smiling men are consistently rated least attractive by women when compared to proud or brooding men.” According to UBC psychologist Jessica Tracy, “Women are more attracted to men who aren’t smiling and who look proud, which could have a genetic basis. It could signal high status, which would be adaptive in terms of mating." Conversely, the same study revealed that a woman showing signs of happiness was rated as the most attractive expression from most men. [The Vancouver Sun]

In what is probably not much of a surprise to anyone, reports are surfacing today that Maria Shriver is expected to file for divorce from Arnold Schwarzenegger, her (now estranged) husband of 25 years. Rumors have begun surfacing that the former First Lady of California may even suspect that the Governator has fathered more extra-marital children in addition to the one he sired with Mildred Baena, his former housekeeper. Those familiar with the couple’s finances speculate that Shriver could be expecting a sizable payout from the couple’s estimated net worth of $200 to $400 million. []

Cultured Men are Happier

Men who go to the opera or enjoy browsing around art museums are more likely to be happier and healthier than men who do not partake in more cultured activities, according to a new study. Koenraad Cuypers of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology conducted the study collecting data from 50,797 adults and found that adults who are creative and/or absorb creative work are more likely to have lower stress levels, feel healthier, and feel more satisfied with life. The results show that men particularly thrived from receptive cultural activities. According to Cuypers, “Men seemed to get more of a perceived health benefit from being involved in different receptive cultural activities than women did.” It might be time to book those tickets to the ballet…for your health, of course.
