Jessica Biel and Bradley Cooper developed a close friendship on the set of their action movie A-Team out last June, and it appears that their budding relationship may have caused her recent split from Justin Timberlake ... Biel's beau of four years.

X17 photographers snapped these exclusive photos of Jess and Bradley getting touchy- feely in between takes while on set of the upcoming film New Year's Eve -- a follow-up to last year's hit Valentine's Day.

Neither Biel's nor Cooper's camp will admit to the relationship, however the gorgeous brunette and Timberlake confirmed their split yesterday. They released the following statement:

    "Addressing the media speculation regarding Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s relationship, we are confirming that they mutually have decided to part ways. The two remain friends and continue to hold the highest level of love and respect for each other."

Jessica and Bradley sure make a cute couple. Wonder what Bradley's lady-friend Rene Zellweger thinks of the new item?


At the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, Jessica and Bradley presented the award for Best Kiss, and although the two didn't lock lips, it appears the chemistry was already there. See video of the two at the awards show ... after the jump.
