Failed Serious Relationships With Actress Girlfriends Spark Gay Rumors
Dominic Cooper has rarely found himself single for more than two decades. He has officially dated three famous stars during this period, but he hasn't had someone in his home who he can call his wife.
Despite being in serious relationships in his dating life, his unbelievable breakups have created speculations amidst his fan base that perhaps he hasn't settled down with women because 'he's secretly gay.' But just because the 40-year-old hasn’t settled down with any of his past girlfriends doesn’t mean that he is gay.
Although he hasn’t made any statements, his dating pattern suggests, he doesn’t seem to want to get married.

Moving out of his gay rumors, his 2018 break up was shocking for his fans. Many people who traveled along the journey of Dominic’s dating life were left wondering after the news of his break-up with Preacher's co-star Ruth Negga broke out on Tabloids.
His relationship with Preacher's co-star Ruth Negga ended after eight years of dating (2009-2018). Their break-up has been harder for Ruth, who had expressed her desire for marriage, kids, and starting a family together with Dominic as his wife in a 2017 interview with DailyMail.

The former couple had met on the stage production of the famous tragedy play Phèdre in mid-2009. Since then, the duo had worked together in several movies like Warcraft; and Breakfast on Pluto.

But Ruth wasn't the only woman who wanted to live the rest of the life with him.
Before dating Negga, Cooper was in an on-off relationship with American actress Amanda Seyfried for more than one year. The duo met on the sets of Mamma Mia! in 2008 and fell in love with each other while shooting in Greece. The pair played lovers Sky and Sophie in the blockbuster Abba movie.
Amanda revealed in an interview with Zimbo in October 2009 that she thought he would swing the other way when they first met, as she found him and his dressing personality to be gay.
"It so wasn’t instant love. I thought he was gay. I didn’t know many Englishmen and it was just the way he dressed -- he is quite fashionable. Dominic and I split off towards the end of filming a little bit, but it was never anything that was real. It takes time. Life is complicated."
She also expressed her desire to marry and start a family with Dominic during her interview with Instyle magazine in the same year. She said,
“I want kids. You don’t necessarily need to be married for that. I would love for my parents to have grandchildren and to have a good father for my kids. I want to be with the father of my children."
Unfortunately, things didn’t quite work out for the pair, which was surprising for the fans given he had only publicly dated Amanda after his past failed relationship. Going way back before Amanda, Cooper dedicated 12 years of his life being in a relationship with actress Joanna Carolan.
Dominic and Joanna's relationship ended after headlines were made when it was revealed that Amanda and Dominic had seen each other behind her back.
Start Of A New Relationship?
Dominic has yet again found his love, this time with Gemma Chan. The two made a public appearance as a couple in December of 2018. They were spotted leaving the London event's afterparty.
The duo confirmed that their relationship started in August of 2018. This was just four months after Dominic parted ways with his eight years relationship with Ruth Negga.

Gemma had her hands wrapped around her partner's hand. The two seemed to have gone shopping, as suggested by a bag in Dominic's hand.
Gemma is a British film and theatre actress and also actively worked as a model. Now, she lives with her boyfriend, Dominic, in his London home.
