Jennifer Lawrence on a mission to set up Bradley Cooper

Jennifer Lawrence is trying to find Bradley Cooper a girlfriend.

The 22-year-old actress has forged a strong friendship with the 38-year-old actor - who has previously dated stars including Renee Zellweger and Zoe Saldana - since they worked together on Silver Linings Playbook and she is doing her best to help him settle down with a nice woman.

She said: "I feel like all I've been doing lately is setting him up."

However, she is finding her efforts exhausting and has decided to give Bradley a shortlist of her friends, including pictures, so he can pick the ones he likes.

She joked to MTV: "I was like, 'You know what? I'm going to save time, I'm going to get you a booklet of pictures of my friends and you just go through and pick them out. Because this is getting exhausting for me."

The Oscar-winning beauty - who was in a relationship with her X-Men: First Class co-star Nicholas Hoult until January - and Bradley's relationship has been the subject of much scrutiny, but she insists there is nothing romantic between them.

She said: "He's more like my brother."
