Bradley Cooper Is People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive

While we are more than slightly disappointed that Henry Cavill didn’t make the list (maybe next year), we’d like to give Bradley Cooper a big kiss (and cop a feel while we’re at it) for being named People’s Sexiest Man Alive.

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

Cooper, whose father Charles passed away in January, is especially close with his mom, Gloria. When he learned he’d been crowned Sexiest Man Alive, the “first thing I thought,” he says, “was, ‘My mother is going to be so happy.’ “

Aww. Isn’t that cute? We’re thinking that one of the reason’s for Bradley taking home the title is the revelation that he can speak French fluently.
