Bradley Cooper, 36 years old, was named Sexiest Man Alive 2011 by People Magazine. The “Hangover” and “Limitless” actor joins the Hollywood fame with previous winners like George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Mel Gibson and last year’s winner, Ryan Reynolds.
Sexiest Man Alive 2011, Bradley Cooper said the first thing he thought when he heard, “My mother’s going to be so happy! I think it’s really cool that a guy who doesn’t look like a model can have this. I think I’m a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.” Coopers dad passed away in January so he is especially close to his mom.
Bradley Cooper was in a relationship with Renee Zellweger for two years, but spilt up in March. He’s been seen with Jennifer Lopez recently, but calls himself single. He also denies to admit that he’s a ladies man and says, “”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.” When he was asked by People what was the sexiest thing he’s done to woo a woman, he said, “Getting on a plane to go get them.”
Not only is Bradley Cooper the Sexiest Man Alive, he can speak French fluently. That ability to speak French got him a role in “Paradise Lost” which is targeted to be released in 2013. InsideMovies said the Milton’s Paradise Lost movie is about “an epic poem published in 1667, tells the story of a charismatic Lucifer, who leads a failed rebellion against God and is subsequently banished from heaven.”
