Sadly, life as a married couple was short lived because in May 2007, Esposito filed for divorce after only being together for four months.

Four years after Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Esposito called it quits, the actor revealed on Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show why he and his ex-wife went their separate ways.

Cooper shared, “It was just something that happened. The good thing is, we both realized it […] Sometimes you just realize it,” Cooper said, according to Us. “It just wasn’t right. It’s interesting […] things happen!”

In her 2014 memoir, Jennifer Esposito revealed what she believed led her marriage down a dark path.

“We had fun, but he also had a mean, cold side. His personality could flip on a dime, but that kind of behavior was familiar to me. I’d spent plenty of time walking on eggshells in my childhood home as well as on certain sets, so I quickly learned my role in the relationship and went forward accordingly,” she revealed.

“But the relationship was about him and what he needed, and nothing else…It wasn’t all bad all the time, so I figured this was just my lot, and I took the good with the bad, even though the bad was extremely bad.

On February 24, Bradley Cooper performed “Shallow” alongside Lady Gaga at the 2019 Academy Awards.

Many shared their thoughts on the intimate performance and Esposito decided to join in on the fun.

Actor David Spade shared a photo of Cooper and Gaga performing their song on stage with the caption, “Is there any chance these 2 aren’t f******?”

Jennifer Espostio simply commented “Ha,” but the internet took her comment as a way to target Bradley Cooper.

The actress later clarified her comment in an Instagram video by saying, “I literally laughed at him [Spade] because he was so bold in what he was saying. I thought it was funny. I’m allowed to think something’s funny.”

She’s an author and bakery owner

When she’s not showcasing her acting chops in television dramas or films, Jennifer Esposito is also an author.

The actress released her first memoir Jennifer’s Way: My Journey with Celiac Disease–What Doctors Don’t Tell You and How You Can Learn to Live Again in 2014.
