This morning People magazine announced its 2011 "Sexiest Man Alive," and it's ... Bradley Cooper? Not Ryan Gosling. Bradley Cooper. Weird. Anyway, we'll concede that Cooper is nice to look at and all that. So congrats to him. [Forced smile.] Harrumph. Like we even care about magazine editors' unscientific rankings of the world's "sexiest men" -- all universally appealing famous actors you could bring home to meet your mom or whatever, as designated by focus groups full of mom-types. Here's why People chose the "Hangover" wolf-man (and not Joel McHale):
Ladies, take note: this Georgetown grad can whip up dinner, take you for a spin on his motorcycle and whisper sweet nothings in French (he's fluent!). Just don't try convincing him what a catch he is.
All right, we forgot about the French thing. He totally deserves to be 'Sexiest Man' and not Michael Fassbender! "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this (title)," says Cooper, 36. "I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."
