George Clooney Wanted Ryan Gosling to Be Sexiest Man Alive

George Clooney Wanted Ryan Gosling to Be Sexiest Man Alive

George Clooney leaves a restaurant after having lunch with his The Descendants co-star, Beau Bridges, on Wednesday (November 16) in Los Angeles.

The night before, the 50-year-old attended the premiere of the dramedy with gal pal Stacy Keibler.

On the red carpet, George told Extra he was hoping his Ides of March co-star Ryan Gosling would be crowned People‘s Sexiest Man Alive – a title that went to Bradley Cooper.

“[Ryan] really wants it. He’s been saying … the whole time we were on the set of Ides, he was like, ‘How did you pull that off?’ So I called up Brad Pitt and we worked with him for weeks on the walk. We told him how to train, everything,” George, who’s been named Sexiest Man Alive twice, joked.

    I am glad George Clooney is taking the title “The Sexiest Man Alive” with good humor. After all, the title “The Sexiest Man Alive” by People magazine is nothing but a joke. There are billions of alive men around the world and all they could come up with is Bradley Cooper?

    I’m sure “Fudge” Clooney has his reasons.

    Ryan totally is the sexiest man alive, no offense to Bradley Cooper fans. I think what held Ryan back is that though he’s LOVED by his fans a lot, people in the industry aren’t quite at that level yet. Not saying they hate him but they’re not as passionate..yet. Couple more years, and it’ll for sure happen!

    Time to come out of the closet, George! I wish you’d get your Best Actress award.

    George is an idiot.
    Now had Gosling dated Jennifer Lopez, he would have gotten the Sexiest Man Award.

    Need new material. Its the same tired thing he said for Matt Damon.

    To each their own I guess. To me, my man is the sexiest, and not just because he’s mine but because he really is hot. I’d never redeem him for grandpa George and his billion dollars. Not in a million years!

    Is clooney telling us something, I knew he was a little pillow biter. The guy is so self centered to reign on this other dudes parade like a little fairy he has to open his mouth.

    The world dont orbit around this dude and he has the most annoying goofy elderly fans in the world.

    Truth Says:

    Old George has passed his prime. I am glad he was not on the list. It’s time to move past him.

    Hey, George your personal life is pathetic.

    I agree. Those lists are stupid. For me there are millions of women prettier than JLo too and everyone has their own taste.

    Bradley’s PR people pulled it off. He went to Ellen to say he wanted it.

    George is funny and still kind of hot. If only he didn’t have sh-t taste in women.

    Hey, People Magazine, you missed one… Chuy Bravo needs to be on the People’s Sexiest Man Alive List… no? What were those editors on? Crack?

    Cheryl Says:

    Old Georgie boy is losing his appeal – his sense of humor sucks, he is getting wrinkles and the world is so over him. How and why he is able to “pick up” flavor of the month chickies is sort of fascinating though. What would a beautiful young woman want with that old dried up coot?

    Cheryl Says:

    @seeit: totally agree

    Amanda Says:

    people magazine just gave bradley cooper one more reason to be a cocky douchebag, instead of giving it to ryan, who is down to earth and has a magnificent personality.
