Everything seems to be coming up Milhouse for Bradley Cooper.
After making the internet swoon with a video that showed off his fluency in French, scoring box office gold in The Hangover franchise and winning over critics with Limitless, the 36-year-old actor has been crowned the Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine.
"I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this [title]," Cooper says in the issue, out this Friday, about joining the likes of Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Ryan Reynolds. "I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."
Creepy blonde hair aside, the Georgetown grad admitted the first person he thought of was Mama Cooper when he heard the news. "First thing I thought was, 'My mother is going to be so happy.'"
Naturally, the title raises certain questions. More specifically, is the blue-eyed star who's recently been linked to Jenifer Lopez also the world's sexiest bachelor?
"[I'm a] single 36-year-old male," he asserts."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."
We've all been there, Bradley.
Speaking on Good Morning America, People senior writer Alexis Chiu explained the tough vetting process that goes into choosing the annual declaration.
"The person just has to have the total package," she said. "[Bradley's] more than just a good-looking guy. This guy speaks fluent French, he cooks â¦ he rides a motorcycles, went to Georgetown, loves his mommy a lot and still opens the door for women."
This year's honorable mentions include Liam Hensworth, Chris Evans, Tim McGraw, Justin Theroux and, of course, Ryan Gosling.
