Bradley Cooper declared ‘sexiest man alive’

/ 07:51 AM November 17, 2011

LOS ANGELES—He’s a Georgetown University graduate who cooks, rides motorcycles and speaks fluent French, but US actor Bradley Cooper can now add “sexiest man alive” to his bio, People said Wednesday.

In picking Cooper for its annual designation, the magazine said the 36-year-old remains modest despite his “dazzling baby blues” and “killer smile.” And he’s also close to his mother Gloria, especially after his father Charles died in January.

“I think it’s really cool that a guy who doesn’t look like a model can have this,” the “Hangover” star told People. “I think I’m a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.”

Cooper, who was with actress Renee Zellweger for two years until they split up in March, has been seen with Jennifer Lopez, but insisted he is no Casanova.

“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,” he said.

And Cooper said his first thought at being crowned top hunk was “my mother is going to be so happy.”

Past winners — mostly actors — have included Ryan Reynolds, George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Mel Gibson who was the first to get the male attractiveness nod, in 1985.
