Bradley Cooper Is Sexiest When He Crushes on Ryan Gosling

bradley cooperWhen Bradley Cooper was crowned People's Sexiest Man Alive this year, the world had a hissy fit. Children wept. Women screamed. Flowers died. And, oddly, men spontaneously developed erectile dysfunction. The cause of the mass hysteria could be summed up in two words: Ryan. Gosling.

Why was not he -- a man who appeals to men and women of all ages and tastes; a man who, somehow, has the sexiest Queens accent despite his Canadian roots; a man who looks disgustingly attractive with his shirt off (even if you're not into the whole muscles thing) -- the winner of the coveted titled? It remained a mystery. And, although all the hoopla and controversy have died down, it still remains a mystery. Particularly to Bradley Cooper.


SMA incumbent Cooper has come out and conceded that despite his victory, Gosling has, in fact, bested him, sexiness-wise, this year. Cooper recently did an interview on The Graham Norton Show and he talked about looking at photos of Gosling online while alone in his hotel room in Paris. A snippet of what he said:

He literally looks like he's in a photoshoot, like he just came off the runway, like the pea coat is like this with the scarf. There are ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never really comes out of his house, and when he does, you're like, "Maybe you should just stay in."

Kind of charming, no? Kind of ... sexy? I mean, don't get me wrong, I still think the award should have gone to Gosling, but Cooper's self-deprecating sense of humor (and, duh, the fact that he speaks French) sort of bump him up a few notches and make him a bit more worthy, wouldn't you say? Like, his earning the title isn't totally offensive after hearing these comments. And, if you watch his French interview enough times, I don't know, I can kind of see what the big deal is. Kind of.

Team Gosling or Team Cooper?
