Bradley Cooper Understands Why So Many People Are Upset Over His “Sexiest Man Alive” Title
Three weeks ago, People Magazine named Bradley Cooper as their Sexiest Man Alive. While I certainly agree he is very handsome, Ryan Gosling fans were angered that Bradley won. Buzzfeed compiled a list noting the “63 Reasons Why Bradley Cooper is Definitely Not the Sexiest Man Alive.” Those “reasons” were all photos of Ryan Gosling, in case you were wondering.
Bradley himself understands why the fans were so upset. He was interviewed in London this weekend and had this to say about the backlash:
“There was such a backlash to when they announced it, and Ryan Gosling — who I love, and I just did a movie with him, he’s the greatest — but we were both in Paris this last week and a friend of mine showed me, there was photographs from paparazzi…and when I say ‘friend,’ I mean me, alone in my room looking at the computer. And it was of him walking around, and he literally looks like he’s in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway. With, like, the peacoat, with the scarf, and there’s ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor that never comes out of his house and when he does it makes you go, like, maybe he should just stay in. So it’s interesting.”
Despite the controversy, Bradley is taking his title in stride.
“I’m finally at an age — I’m 36 years old — where I finally don’t care about anything like that anymore, which is a wonderful thing. And then this happened, and I started to realize how not sexy I am. I’ll have a lot of moments where I’ll be walking out, and I’ll open up the door and go, ‘I could’ve done that a lot sexier. That was not very sexy.’ “
There are so many good looking men in this world, you can’t please everyone with only having ONE winner. I would find it an honor just to be nominated. Granted I am not a man, but if it were Sexiest Woman Alive (trust me, I know I would never be nominated) it would be nice to be on the list with the rest of the beautiful women in the world. But I will not be hurt if I am not on that list, I have more things to do with my time than to worry about what others think of my looks.
To Bradley and the rest of us that find him sexy, it’s O.K. to not look all made up 24/7. The 5 O’clock shadow, messy hair, sweatpants and t-shirt look is still sexy! Looking perfect is not necessary! The fact that he’s not gloating about being the winner is pretty hot too! Nothing worse than a good looking man bragging about his sexiness.
