Bradley Cooper Is 'People's Sexiest Man Alive'

By: Joe Thompson

Today People revealed that Bradley Cooper was the magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" for 2011. What reasons did the entertainment mag give (besides the eyes and smile, natch)?

•He's a Georgetown grad
•He can whip up dinner
•He can take you for a spin on his motorcycle
•He can speak French ("he's fluent!" they exclaim with an exclamation mark and everything)
•He's modest, quoting the 36 year old actor as saying, "I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying." He also has said, "If you're a single man and you happen to be in this business you're deemed a player. But I don't see myself as a ladies' man."
•And he's close to his mom (awwwwwww)

Cooper now joins the prestigious ranks of Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, and Ryan Reynolds. The print edition hits stands on Friday.

So who else made the list? Crazy sexy Dylan McDermott at 50, Alec Baldwin for the bear lovers, funny man and nerdy-cute Joel McHale, Tim McGraw to satisfy Country fans, Jason Mamoa for those Conan the Barbarian fans (What? Never mind...), Josh Charles, Idris Elba, Justin Theroux, and obvious choices like Liam Hemsworth, Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling.
