The actor laughed off rumours suggesting he was romantically involved with Lawrence, stating he's old enough to be her dad.
Speaking of J-Law to Entertainment Tonight, the 38-year old said: "If it didn't happen by now, it's not gonna happen. I could literally be her father."
Cooper also recently admitted that following his break-up with Saldana, he has asked his mother to be his date at The Oscars next month, where he is nominated for Best Actor for his role alongside Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook.
The Hangover star told E! News: "One night, when I started the profession, [mum said] 'If you ever [get nominated] I am the date'. She was freaking out."
