Annie Cooper: Bleacher Report's World Football WAG of the Week
As a soap opera star in England, Annie Cooper isn't a name that most people recognize.
While her face is also unfamiliar, many are more than willing to take a long gander.
However, Cooper is now reaching the tabloids, as it was recently leaked that she is dating Chelsea FC star Ashley Cole.
Divorced since September after his ex-wife accused him of being unfaithful, the controversial footballer is back on the prowl.
But who is Annie Cooper?
Is she just a pretty face or is there more to the sexy blonde?
Let's delve deeper into the inner workings of soap star Annie Cooper, Bleacher Report's World Football Wag of the Week.
Fame at an Early Age
Born in Helsingborg, Sweden in 1983, Cooper displayed early signs of talent in her baby ballet classes at London Studio Centre in London.
An illustrious career seemed imminent.
Young Cooper was spotted by Russian Olympic coaches at the tender age of seven while attending gymnastics and was invited to Moscow to train twice a year for the Olympics.
She was expected to represent Great Britain at the Olympics before she even reached puberty.
Theatre School Rules
At 10 years old, Cooper won a scholarship to the Sylvia Young Theatre School in Marylebone, London.
Not only did she study drama, dance, speech, singing and music studies, she also appeared in TV programs, movies and commercials. She continued to boost her already stellar resume.
She also studied alongside Amy Winehouse and Jodi Albert.
Following Big Footsteps
Following her tenure at Sylvia Young Theatre School, Cooper studied Meisner technique.
Stanford Meisner taught the craft to actors such as Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, Bob Fosse and Grace Kelly.
Cooper knew she was in good company.
Did we mention she can model as well?
Clearly beautiful on the outside, it's her inner drive that separates her.
Her pictures have a unique intensity to them that begs for attention.
Try to peel your eyes away.
Accents Are True Aphrodisiacs
This accent causes a stir.
Her beauty is only enhanced by the unique sound of her voice.
Irony at Its Best
Being recently cast for a role as a wannabe WAG on Hollyoaks, one might question how she will do.
No need to worry, because her real life isn't far from her acting one.
As the sexy minx Alex in Hollyoaks, she is aspiring to be a WAG, similar to her role as the real Annie Cooper.
The serial cheater and Chelsea star Ashley Cole was apparently loving life as a bachelor, despite a rough divorce last year, until he met Annie.
Out of the kindness of his heart (yes that is sarcastic), Cole tried to keep the affair quiet to make sure that Cooper could handle all the attention.
What a good guy (right).
After hiding their relationship for a month, Ashley Cole and Annie Cooper have been discovered.
Reported on soccer blogs and various news sites, Cooper was spotted at Cole's house at a rather late hour.
Many suspect that she may be a booty call.
Others believe there is more beneath the sheets.
Love or Limelight
According to Maggie Red Blog, Annie was seen with Cole's teammates at a London Club.
"They were on a table with Ashley's pals when he suggested playing the ice cube game. This involved passing the ice-cube, boy to girl, using their mouths. The lads then got carried away by putting the ice down the girls' tops."
There is debate concerning whether there is truly a foundation in place for a relationship between the soap star and the footballer.
Maybe she is just begging for an extra minute of attention?
Showing Her Diversity
While she may not be Jodie Foster or win any awards for her questionable acting, nobody can argue with her commitment to diversity.
She takes broadening one's horizons to the next level.
Well done, Annie, well done.
What's Next for the Wag of the Week
The next step in Annie Cooper's career is to define one.
With her boy toy Ashley Cole having ruined his previous marriage with rumors of infidelity and continuous controversy, where does Cooper go from here?
Did we mention Cole also shot a 21-year-old with an air rifle by accident? He claims he didn't know it was loaded.
Only time will tell whether Cole can move on from his past and find happiness with the gorgeous soap star and whether she can hang around long enough to test it out.
Or will he shoot her down too?
Soap operas are overrated—real life is where the real drama exists.
