Big news from grocery store check-out magazine racks: Bradley Cooper has been named the Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine. Cooper -- who appeared onscreen in 'Limitless' and 'The Hangover Part II' this year, and off-screen in a garbage bag -- was pleased with the honor. "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this [title]," he said. "I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying." Funny stuff, Mr. Cooper. Though his selection raises the obvious question: Was Ryan Gosling unavailable for a photo shoot?
Seriously. If there was one actor in 2011 who seemed to embody the idea of "sexiest man alive," it would have to be The Gos. From his mostly shirtless performance in 'Crazy Stupid Love' to his strong-silent badass in 'Drive' to his Barneys-wearing politico in 'The Ides of March,' Gosling was everywhere, constantly. Dude even made a ridiculous stripped tank-top look good. No offense to Cooper -- who co-stars with Gosling in 'The Place Beyond the Pines' next year -- but if Gosling wasn't People's Sexiest Man Alive, it must be because he's a zombie. Or something.
