Bradley Cooper: People's Sexiest Man Alive!

People has crowned Bradley Cooper the sexiest man alive for 2011!

The 36-year-old Hangover star shared that the first thing he thought when he learned the news was, “My mother is going to be so happy.” Aww!

“I think it’s really cool that a guy who doesn’t look like a model can have this [title],” Bradley added. “I think I’m a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.”

Bradley is in good company – past celebs honored with the Sexiest Men Alive distinction include Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Johnny Depp, and Ryan Reynolds.

WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE as the Sexiest Man Alive this year?

  • Isabela

    he’s sexy and all, but definetly not the sexiest! <<Just MY opinion

  • Ashley.A

    totally should have been alexander skarsgard or ryan gosling.
    bradley’s decent enough but i wouldn’t say that he’s the “Sexiest Man Alive”

  • Anonymous

    He is beady-eyed and extremely average looking. Ugh.

  • http://@blaisebk Blaise

    MICHAEL FASSBENDER is uber sexy…I’ll expect him to be on your list next year, People! But I do adore Bradley Cooper.

  • Idril

    Really? I like him but Sexiest Man Alive? No way!

  • Braz

    Brad pitt sexiest.

  • Braz

    Brad pitt sexiest.

  • Elio

    I think he’s so appealing, he’s right for this :)

  • Elio

    I think he’s so appealing, he’s right for this :)

  • Natalie

    I still think Alexander Skarsgard is the sexiest of them all and Michael Fassbender in close second.

  • Shelle

    @Anonymous: I definitely agree. He shouldn’t have gotten this. He is not that attractive at all.

  • nikki

    oh here come the complaints, if it were Ryan, Leo or who ever else, we would also hear complaints. no one can make everyone happy…

  • Paulie

    I like how each year the “Sexiest Man” acts so surprised and humble when it’s his team that aggressively pursued the title.

  • hawi

    “My mother is going to be so happy”

    Just come out of the closet , you’re not fooling anyone

  • Rainbe

    its just a title. some guy gets it every year and I’m more than sure not everyone agrees with their choice each year, chill out.

  • katniss

    Should have been Fassbender

  • ellen

    I think he’s sexy ever since I saw him on Wedding Crashers. I love his arrogance and there’s just “something about him”. that is sex appeal. It doesn’t have to be a perfect male model type. yuck. He is very handsome and has his appeal.

  • Daniel

    For me Ryan Gosling is the men sexiest man, Cooper is sexy, but not than Gosling.

  • Marina

    I agree tha Ryan Reynolds is far sexier than B. Cooper. In fact, Cooper is not sexy at all. He’s just another average looking actor without sex appeal.

  • Mel

    Ryan Gosling should have got it.

  • Not a fan

    My votes are for Ryan Gosling and Tom Hardy.

  • mkhay

    Whoever, chose this should get get their head checked.
    I mean he’s not ugly but there are far more talented men.
    Ryan Gosling, Jake Gyllenhaal

  • nes

    he is good looking, no doubt about that. Wishin tat fassbender will be on ta cover nxt yr. Fingers crossed.

  • Maya

    I like him – c’mon, if Leo with his babyface can be Sexiest Man Alive, the title sure as hell can go to Bradley!

  • zurichgirl

    he is not that sexy.

  • lalala

    omg….ok he is not ugly but the same with reynolds they look too gay for me….not manly sexy like gosling or fassbender!!!!

  • Anna

    What’s with the Bradley hate?

  • lauren

    I would have picked either Ryan Gosling or Garrett Hedlund both would have been much better choices. Bradley got because his people have kept him one of the IT boys of tabloids. Cooper has been seen dating everyone for a headline. Hes a good enough looking guy but I dont see him winning the title twice in his life time.

  • Helina

    Nah, ok good-looking guy, but c`moon, where`s Sam Worthington? He`s so sexy….

    Adam Lambert by a mile!!!!

  • Delilah

    No one cares anymore any way. I mean, really. I guess when they first started doing this it sold magazines for them, but now its a big yawn. They are just giving their opnion. I don’t happen to agree with them.

    I think if you have to worry about photographing someone from the right angles to make sure their eyes don’t look so beady and their big nose isn’t so beaky, then I don’t see how you can think they are attractive. He has a decent enough body but so do hundreds of other famous guys.

  • Marie


  • CJLOVE23

    Um no. He’s OK but how is he the sexiest man alive? For screwing half of Hollywood? Ok.

  • Jacky

    Chris Evans Is  the Sexiest Man Alive !!!!

  • kris


  • Karih

    Bradley Cooper has a lot of charm but I would choose Matt Bomer has the sexiest man alive :)

  • Thank JLo

    I’m sure Jennifer Lopez got him to first place, like she did for Affleck years ago.

  • Jade10

    I don’t agree with Bradley Cooper! He’s okay…But defiantly not the hottest. I’d vote for Jake Gyllenhaal! Mmm…
