Along with lookalike sister Cisely, the Avatar actress, 33, was photographed out and about with beau Bradley Cooper's mother, Gloria. The threesome lunched at California Pizza Kitchen, and then caught a matinee of Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum's ultra-romantic flick The Vow.

Gloria spent quality time with son Bradley's last serious girlfriend Renee Zellweger; the duo were frequently photographed on girls-only outings before the actor, 37, and Zellweger, 42, ended their two-year romance last spring.

After post-split flings with Jennifer Lopez, Olivia Wilde and French actress Melanie Laurent, Cooper quietly began dating Saldana in December. Saldana split from fiance Keith Britton in November.
