Bradley Cooper Ups His Sex Appeal By Conceding That Ryan Gosling Has More

“It’s so awful that I’m admitting this, but the hell with it: There was such a backlash when they announced it [from people who favor] Ryan Gosling, who I love, and I just made a movie with him and he’s the greatest. And when I say ‘friend,’ I mean me alone, looking at the computer. It’s [paparazzi shots of Gosling] walking around, and he literally looks like he’s in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway. The peacoat is like this, with the scarf! And then there’s ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never comes out of his house.”

– Bradley Cooper addresses the “controversy” surrounding his being named People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” over Ryan Gosling on “The Graham Norton Show.” I gotta say, even though I don’t believe for a second that Bradley Cooper actually cared that he was awarded such an honor — and I obviously believe Ryan Gosling never wanted it (and, in fact, probably totes turned it down) — I felt kind of bad that the dude couldn’t revel in his sexiness even for a moment. Let me be the first to say, Bradley, that your acknowledgment of Ryan’s handsomeness (and his ability to wear a peacoat with panache) has upped your sex appeal in my book. []
