Looks like people are getting back with their exes everywhere, and even Hollywood is not susceptible to the charms of the people they once dated. Recently, Irina Shayk was seen attending a premiere of the film "Nightmare Alley," and the film stars none other than her ex, Bradley Cooper. Of course, this means that fans everywhere are suggesting that Irina heading to Bradley's film premiere could only mean that the former couple is reuniting. 

The stunning model was seen wearing a pinstripe suit but with a style that looked totally gorgeous on her as she attended her former boyfriend Bradley Cooper's film Nightmare Alley's premiere. The event was held in New York on Wednesday, December 1. The glamorous pinstripe suit worn by Irina Shayk was paired with leather suspenders running along the suit. 

The couple is now thought to be dating as Irina made an appearance at the red carpet event, specifically debuting her ex-boo. Irina, aged 35, and Bradley, aged 46, had called quits to their relationship back in 2019. 

Apart from her very hot pick of outfits, Irina chose to wear her beautiful black hair in a clean, slicked look. Her makeup choice for the event featured a bold red lip shade. On the other hand, her former boyfriend and the father of her daughter Lea, aged 4, Bradley Cooper, cut a dashing figure in a traditional black suit. While the couple did not pose together for pictures during their red carpet appearance, them being together in the same event in itself was adequate to fan the flames of rumors suggesting their probable reconciliation. 

Nightmare Alley is a 1940 crime thriller film featuring Bradley Cooper as Staton Carlisle, a man from Mississippi. The film takes after the talented man who works his skills in carnivals and fairs and has an immensely stunning ability to manipulate people. The story kicks start with force when Stanton meets a psychic and her husband when traveling with a carnival. 

Soon things start shifting the other war around for Stanton. The film is based on the novel debuting the film's title, and which was written by William Lindsay Gresham in 1946. The film shows the actor debuting a southern accent as he speaks and also donning a brand new look, making him look a stunning figure you would think from the South from back in the day. The look also features a thick mustache from the 1940s. 

While Bradley leads the cast of the crime thriller film and gets to portray Stanton Carlisle, Rooney Mara, Cate Blanchett, Toni Collete, Willem Dafoe, and Richard Jenkins bring on the rear. The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro and is thought to be a rendition version of the 1947 film, which also has taken after the 1946 novel. Though the couple was not spotted together, Bradley did register her presence and even told Entertainment Tonight that Irina being able to attend the premiere was "very special." 

"It's very special," were Cooper's exact words for getting Shayk to attend the event. Apparently, Irina and Bradley were also spotted together last month in New York City and are getting well together, as reported by a source to ET. Sharing a daughter together also means that they do come together from time to time after splitting from their four-year relationships. 

"Irina and Bradley have been in a really great groove in regards to co-parenting for a while," said the source and added, "They both love Lea so much and want to be the best parents possible. A lot of Irina and Bradley's interactions and hangouts surround Lea and her schedule, but they also get together on their own."

Copper also shared what was the most exciting for him when shooting the film and said, "I was just so excited every day coming to work, whether it was gonna be Willem Dafoe that day or David Strathairn or Mark Povinelli or Ron Perlman or Toni Collette. I mean, the cast was insane." He added, "And then, being there with Guillermo. I think that was the most enjoyable thing."

He also added, "This was one of those movies where every single person showed up for the love of the game." The actor also helped del Toro to produce the film apart from being the lead man of the show. 

"I have been so lucky to work with great artists, and the thing that they all have in common is a level of humility and childlike curiosity, and he has both of those things," added Cooper. "And the only goal is to tell the best story possible, and once that happens, once you're in that environment, it's infectious. And that's what he does. And I think that's why he's able to bring the best out of most people he works with."

Still, there are no official reports of the couple officially getting back together, and apart from them getting together to co-parent their daughter Lea, they also celebrated Thanksgiving together this year for their little child. The couple also took her to the ballet for The Nutcracker, where they met Anne Hathaway and her husband, Adam Schulman. An insider shared,  “Everybody was smiling and giggling.”

Irina herself is very pleased with Bradley Cooper and his parenting when it comes to Lea. While the actress keeps her family privacy strictly under covers she offered a rare glimpse into her life with her daughter, Lea, and former boyfriend. She shared, “I never understood the term co-parenting. When I’m with my daughter, I’m 100 percent a mother, and when she’s with her dad, he’s 100 percent her dad.” Irina has also shared that Bradley is the “most amazing dad.”
