Marie Claire is delivering twice the star power for April, tapping Limitless co-stars Abbie Cornish and Bradley Cooper for the cover of its Couples Issue.

Though Cooper is dating Renee Zellweger and Cornish split from Ryan Phillippe last year, the actors play a couple in their latest film and actually make quite the pretty pair in the magazine's fashion feature.

The Australian-born Cornish, normally a blonde, débuts a daring new brunette bob for the shoot, which sees her modeling stark white designs from Peter Som, Tess Giberson, and Lauren by Ralph Lauren, all free from fur and leather in deference to her "fashion vegan" lifestyle.

Cooper, meanwhile, opts for a dapper, business-casual look in a Brooks Brothers suit and button-down shirts from Polo Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein Collection.

In keeping with the magazine's relationships theme, the stars share their own thoughts on love.

While Cornish says "a love for one’s self, trust, communication, compassion, intimacy, giggles ... and the occasional tickle fight" are crucial for romance, Cooper admits he was a late bloomer in the love department.

The stars play a couple in their new film Limitless and star in Marie Claire's couples issue.

“The first date I ever went on was in Ocean City, N.J.," recalls the Hangover - Part II star. "I was 13, and I took this girl I knew to a seafood restaurant on the boardwalk and ordered clams on the half shell—not really a great first-date meal. I was dressed like such a dork, plus it’s not very appealing to watch your date suck down 24 raw clams on a hot summer night, but that’s how I laid it on.”
