A couple weeks ago, we reported about the spirited protest that flared up when Bradley Cooper was elected People’s Sexiest Man Alive over rumoured favourite Ryan Gosling. Speaking publicly for the first time since the incident, Cooper is throwing in his lot with the 99%. He recently told Graham Norton that, after working with the Drive star in Paris on the upcoming Derek Cianfrance movie The Place Beyond the Pines, he was forced to admit defeat in the sexy department. “A friend of mine showed me photographs from the paparazzi—and when I say friend, I mean me, alone in my room, looking at the computer,” he joked (we hope). “And it’s like him walking around and he literally looks like he’s in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway. There are ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbour who never really comes out of his house, and when he does, you’re like, ‘Maybe you should just stay in.’” After seeing how self-effacing and gentlemanly Cooper can be, we feel a little guilty for openly backing the Gos-fans. But only a little. -Allison Friedman
