Bradley Cooper is hilarious in a new interview with More! Magazine, especially when he jokes about how he and his ‘Place Beyond the Pines’ co-star Ryan Gosling had ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ contests during their lunch breaks.
Cooper originally received the SMA title in 2011, but Gosling fans were furious and considered their idol to be robbed of the title. Now, Cooper jokes about working with Gosling and says, “It was treacherous. We had Sexiest Man Alive matches every lunchtime. Who walked most sexily, who ate lunch most sexily, who opened doors most sexily. He won every time.”
He also talks about what it was like for him to be named the SMA, saying, “Every time somebody mentions it to me, I record them and play the conversation back when I get up in the morning just to remind myself. No, I don’t really think about it much because it’s nothing to do with me, it’s just a thing that [was] here one minute, gone the next. And it’s not like I walk down the street and people yell at me, ‘Here comes [2011’s] Sexiest Man Alive!’”
Cooper is currently gaining strong reviews for his performance in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ and is tipped to be an Oscar contender come February.
