Bradley Cooper is People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’

Because your FishbowlNY editors graciously took themselves out of the running this year, People has selected Bradley Cooper as the “Sexiest Man Alive.” Other celebrities that came close to receiving the honor included Ryan Gosling, Idris Elba, George Clooney and Chris Evans.

The 36-year-old Cooper had a humble reaction to the news. “I think it’s really cool that a guy who doesn’t look like a model can have this [title],” Cooper told People. “I think I’m a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.”

We’re kind of surprised that Gosling didn’t win, but Cooper is a good choice. We once passed by him in Union Square, and while we wanted to say something snarky about him or his movies, his hair was so fantastic we simply could not do it.

The issue featuring Cooper hits newsstands Friday.
