Bradley Cooper totally has a crush on Ryan Gosling: “He’s the greatest!”

Bradley Cooper is currently People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive. They just decided to give him that in lieu of handing over his “Your Publicist Is The Best This Year” Award. Immediately after Bradley was named SMA, “protesters” (“losers”) picketed People Magazine’s NYC headquarters, demanding that the Sexiest Man Alive designation should be given to Ryan Gosling. Now… look, I think B.Coop was a bad choice too, and I think Michael Fassbender should be declared the Sexiest Man EVER, but I’m not going to, like, leave my house and protest about it. I’ll just sit at home and write my slash fiction about Fassy and Brad Pitt (for my own personal use). Where was I going with this…? Oh, right. One of the weird things about B.Coop’s SMA title is that he doesn’t even seem to “get” it, and he spends half of his time Single White Female-ing other actors (like he did with Fassbender in London), or openly crushing on other, sexier dudes (like Gosling). Here are some new quotes from Bradley where he discusses his man-crush on Gosling:

Bradley Cooper admits Ryan Gosling is one of the reasons he doesn’t feel like People’s Sexiest Man Alive.

“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 … photographs from the paparazzi — and when I say friend, I mean me, alone in my room, looking at the computer. And it’s like him walking around and he literally looks like he’s in a photoshoot, like he just came off the runway, like the pea coat is like this with the scarf,” Bradley recounted on “The Graham Norton Show” in the UK over the weekend.

“There are ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never really comes out of his house, and when he does, you’re like, ‘Maybe you should just stay in.’ We don’t know what he does in there. So it’s been interesting.”

Bradley jokingly called being named the Sexiest Man, “the worst,” adding, “it’s just so awful.”

He also revealed the title has made him rethink every day activities.

“I’m finally at an age — I’m 36 years old — where I really don’t care about anything like that anymore, which is a wonderful thing and then this happened and then I started to realize just how not sexy I am,” he said.

“I have a lot of moments where [I’m] walking out and I’ll open up the door [and think to myself], ‘I could do that a lot sexier,’” he laughed.

In related news, Bradley, who was promoting the UK DVD release of “The Hangover Part II,” said he expects to start shooting the third installment in the film franchise next fall.

“I personally want to do it. I hope we’re gonna start shooting in September. [Director, co-writer] Todd Phillips is working on the script,” Bradley said.

The actor also noted the film will likely diverge from the first two vacation-buddy comedies.

“I think it’ll take place in Los Angeles and maybe not adhere to the structure. It might be different,” he explained.

I LOL’d at “And when I say friend, I mean me, alone in my room, looking at the computer…” Because that’s funny, and I honestly, can’t you picture B.Coop sitting around, obsessing over F–k Yeah Ryan Gosling?

Oh, and do we really need another Hangover movie? Wasn’t the second one just the exact same plot, only it was set in Thailand?

    I like Bradley Cooper. Always have. Yeah, he looks smarmy but a lot of Hollywood stars, including the Gossdong, do at times.

  2. GoodCapon says:

    He’s definitely not squashing the gay rumors with that comment.

  3. Eve says:

    I don’t think Bradley Cooper is a sexy man…but I still think he was a better choice than Gosling (I’m not going to say — for the billionth time — what I think about Gosling).

    The criticism towards him has been rather unfair, in my opinion. Now the man seems to be apologizing for having been chosen as the Sexiest Man Alive instead of Gosling!!!

  4. Agnes says:

    Sneaking Fassbender into yet another unrelated post? Hahaha.

  5. Marjalane says:

    I think they both look like serial killers in the pictures above. And just in case Ryan Goslings PR people actually read this stuff- like he says they do- I want them to know that my lust for him is dwindling rapidly; The manwhore stuff, the posed photo’s, the inability to shake his “Driver” persona. I mean, I’d still do him, but I might be embarrassed about it afterward.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      What does “inability to shake his Driver personae” mean?? What, have you seen him driving around in a stunt car, sporting a satin Scorpion jacket? I’ve seen him in several interviews since the movie and he seems like the same chill actor from Half Nelson and Blue Valentine if you as me.

  6. lisa says:

    I think they are trying to generate interest in the SMA title. And the none drama of Gosling not winning. Bradley doesn’t have anything to promote right now. He is not a name in the Awards season. So it really was strange that he was picked in the first place. BUT I would love to know how many issues were sold. After a few days nobody talked about it much. Same with Ryan R.

    It is like they need to keep reminding people that he is The SMA. My thinking is if it were true you wouldn’t have to do the hard sell.

    I think he is cute, but still find he and Gosling weird. (and not saying gay) just off.. and neither really does anything for me at all.

  7. Silk Spectre says:

    Another Hangover?! They milk the cow 4 all of it’s worth, huh?

    I really like Bradley Cooper as an actor, he’s very appealing on screen.

  8. Girl says:

    I agree that Fassy should have been SMA. End of story.

  9. paola says:

    gay. gay. gay. gay. completely and utterly gay.

    • GoodCapon says:

      So do you think he’s gay? 😉

      • Eve says:

        @ GoodCapon:


        @ Paola:

        No, he’s gay, gay, gay. The fourth and fifth gay – that was pushing it.

        P.S.: Yes, I’m copying George Clooney’s comment about the rumors that he was gay, gay, gay.

    • paola says:

      Yes he has nice eyes and he’s fit and he thick all the boxes, but he’s never ever fooled me, not even for a second. Totally, utterly gay and maybe more.
      gay, GAY, gAy, GaY, G A Y.

  10. Calli P says:

    His entire first paragraph (of quote) sounds like it comes from a gay man’s perspective. And that is not meant to be derogatory or snide at all.

    He should just out himself and live happily ever after. His smokescreen is getting thinner and thinner.

  11. Rhiley says:

    Actually, this interview makes me like him more. I thought it was quite cute and really funny. And if he is gay, what’s the big deal? Most gay men are way sexier than straight men. Here’s what I think about Bradley Cooper. He shouldn’t be an actor. He should’ve worked for a PhD in English Lit from Cal Berkeley or Duke and then gone on to teach at some small New England college. As an actor he is not sexy, but if he were an English Professor he’d totally be swoon material.

  12. LucyOriginal says:

    Didn’t he say not too long ago how much he admired George Clooney? Who’s gonna be next?

  13. Kit says:

    Bradley Cooper is not sexy or hot to me, but I would totally buy him a coffee and hang out with him. He seems like a really nice guy.

  14. JaneWonderfalls says:

    I like Ryan Gosling as an actor better than Bradley but I find Bradley more physically attractive than Gosling. But I have always detested this hottest man/woman in the world banter, plus who voted I didn’t get a vote…

  15. Amanda says:

    Bradley just doesn’t do it for me. Sorry.

  16. NancyMan says:

    Careful ghurl, your slip is showing….

  17. Julie says:

    Neither do much for me, but I’d almost pick Bradley over Ryan particularly as of late since Ryan is coming across to me as trying to hard to project this layed back, cool guy when he seems to really work at it (i.e. the pant leg stuffed in the boot).

  18. Nev says:

    if he is gay then he is just friends with jlo…must be nice…she’s fabu…he is a big star..should jump and come out…oh well.

  19. I Choose Me says:

    I’m meh on B-Coop but this interview makes me like him a whole lot more. He sounds very self-aware and seems to have a great sense of humor.

    A sense of humor definitely makes a man sexier to moi.

  20. Denise says:

    B-Coop is now officially creepy and he is gay. These actors just don’t know when to stop sharing their thoughts.

  21. Madison says:

    If he hates it so much why does he keep talking about being named sexiest man alive by people magazine, he’s such a fake like most actors in hollywood. He acts surprised he was named sexiest by people yet most likely knew his manager/publicist were campaigning for him to get the People cover.

  22. kieslowski says:

    Golsing is a much better actor than Cooper will ever be, so for that I will always pick Golsing, I mean “Half Nelson” is brilliant beyond words.

  23. Turtle Dove says:

    Oh, Coop. I like you. You wore the sh*t outta that suit – the one where you style stalked Fassie at his premiere. But more confidence, not s-w-a-g-g-e-r, just exude confidence in what you do and say. Famewhoring and showmancing is not cool and, in that respect, you’ve got one up on the Gos.

  24. Tiffany says:

    I guess I am the only one gamed for another Hangover film. I enjoyed both of them. People were complaining about the same premise, but I thought that was the point. B-Coop seems like a cool guy and I am glad that he is not taking the SMA seriously and is being pretty self deprecating about it. You talk up people you are either creepy or gay. You talk ill of them you are wrong. Damn if you do, damn if you don’t.

  25. kristiner says:

    WTF is this obsession with Bradley Cooper? This guy is seriously fug and he has a jerk face. Literally, his face and features together just make him look like an asshole.

    I don’t get it. Gosling honestly, looks like a bird.

  26. kimberly says:

    Ryan is the better actor OBVIOUSLY

    Cooper is gay OBVIOUSLY

    (it’s Ellen obvious, you know how she didn’t need to announce it, the people knew)

    I don’t see a story here.

  27. Jordan says:

    In a contest of who I would rather hang out with, Bradley Cooper wins. I just see Ryan explaining odd concepts all night and saying that I don’t ‘get it’. Both are appealing on screen though.

  28. Lexi says:

    I kinda feel bad for Bradley Cooper. For a while, people were loving him but now, everyone proclaims he’s a douchebag (Well, saying he LOOKS like a douchebag has some merit but does that really warrant all the criticism). What happened to all the love? Did he do something terrible that I didn’t hear about?

    He’s a decent actor – sure, there are actors who are better than him, but he’s far from being the worst out there.

    This whole Ryan Gosling thing is weird. People hate on Bradley Cooper for saying he admires (Okay, sounds more like fawning, I admit) a fellow actor and people give him flack for his so-called fling with JLO… But look, Gosling has weird shit going on too. He takes all his dates to Disneyland. Like, all of them. And he’s with Eva Mendes (I give him as much flack for that as I gave Cooper with JLO). Whatever. Yeah, the guy’s talented but I just think Gosling has some issues too.
