The Word: This weekend’s celebrity movers and shakers

Jennifer Lopez and Bradley Cooper chatted last year at the Tommy Hilfiger Spring 2011 show during Fashion Week. Were there sparks back then?

In today’s column, we’ll look at the celebrities moving toward one another, those moving farther apart and one who found his way out of the closet over the weekend.

On the up and up? Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lopez. (Maybe!) The actor stepped out recently with a woman who looked a lot like the “American Idol” judge, though she was going to great lengths to shield herself from photographers, according to Us Weekly.  A source close to the singer says it was in fact Lopez meeting up with the “Hangover” star, getting together again after having dinner last month. “After their date in New York, Bradley and Jennifer stayed in touch,” the source says. “She does like his attention, and it makes her feel good that he seems so into her. She has a fun time with Bradley and he makes her laugh.”

But while these two might be getting tight, it looks like Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are heading toward splitsville. A  moving truck was seen pulling up to the couple’s L.A. home late last week, according to Us Weekly. The moving company, Wetzel & Sons, would not divulge any information about the job. While it’s unclear who may be vacating the premises, sources speculate Kutcher would be the one kicked to the curb. “Demi is humiliated,” a source says. “She loves him, but can’t forgive him for the embarrassment he has caused.”

Meanwhile, although there is no gossip regarding who Zachary Quinto is or isn’t dating, there is one thing for certain: He likes dating dudes.

In a New York interview, the “Star Trek” actor chatted about his role in the off-Broadway production of “Angels in America,” saying,  “As a gay man, it made me feel like there’s still so much work to be done, and there’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed.”

And that, actors, is a great way to come out. No fanfare, no tabloid cover, just a straight-forward piece about your work. Mazel tov!
