Goodness ... between Cooper and Michael Vartan, who also speaks fluent French, it's a wonder the Alias set didn't melt. *fans self*

Lord, that show was full of hotness and even Victor Garber is a handsome guy! Mmmmm..... :swoon:


I would have picked fellow Canuck Ryan Gosling before them all. LOL

I saw Access Hollywood earlier tonight and apparently it was REALLY close between the two of them. Ryan has his own page in the magazine because it was such a close vote. :)

Allow me to cast my sexiest man vote towards my fave baseball player (and Canadian hottie), Cincinnati Red Joey Votto (http://cdn1.sbnation.com/imported_assets/639782/img_3996.jpg). :swoon:

I've always thought that Bradley Cooper was quite yummy.

I wish for a spoon also, please. :grope:

Gotta love their "Sexy at Any Age", they have one guy for each of the years between 21 and 40 but then there's a big gap to 45 and another to get to George Clooney. :lol: I give them points for picking Jeremy Renner (40) though.

Wow that's a long time. You know, I love the pretty in all colors, but it'd be nice if they were a little more diverse in their top picks...

Of the guys mentioned in this thread, I'd def vote for Jason Momoa, Ryan Gosling and Henry Cavill, yessiree :swoon:

Yeah, Bradley Cooper's gorgeous (especially when speaking French), but it'd be nice to have some diversity. But, I guess it is representative of the lack of diversity that still exists in Hollywood.

Apparently they offer the title to a people, but some turn it down - apparently Leonardo DiCaprio has turned it down in the past. Also - they have never had two non-Americans in a row, so many are saying THAT'S why Ryan Gosling (raised in Cornwall, Ontario) didn't get it this year - Ryan Reynolds (from Vancouver) was SMA last year.

Though, Bradley has a bigger box-office $$ than Ryan Gosling, which plays a factor, though Ryan is more of a recognized name.

Also, Ryan is 'young' to be named - he's just turned 31 (the average age of the SMA is 39) - the only ones ever named at that age (or younger) were:
Mel Gibson at 29 in 1985
JFK Jr at 27 in 1988
Tom Cruise at 28 in 1990
Brad Pitt at 31 in 1995
Ben Affleck at 31 in 2002
Jude Law at 30 in 2004 (Source (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/People_%28magazine%29#Sexiest_Man_Alive))

And they were all insanely huge at those times (I think that Jude's was the year he was in about 47 movies). Ryan may be big but he's not at the level of say Brad in 1995.

There has been a lot of uproar over Bradley being picked over Ryan - most people aren't even considering anyone else - to most it should have been Ryan and nobody else. Though for all we know, he could have turned it down a la Leo.

Nothing says it has to be an actor.

It's not his best film, but Alan Rickman had a full-frontal scene in "Dark Harbor"

Bradley Cooper looks too much like my brother. Not saying I don't have a handsome brother, but it's just like, no. :lol:

Michael Vartan, OTOH, yes!

I just realized that they didn't include Michael Fassbender at all, which is crazy. Insanely hot, and he's in the middle of a really big year (summer super-hero movie, the Jane Eyre movie, the new Cronenberg with Viggo and Keira Knightly, and supposedly a legitimate Oscar contender for Shame.)

People listed online aren't always in the magazine, and people in the magazine aren't always online. I'm sometimes a bit confused too - like last year they didn't include Alexander Skarsgard (though he was there the year before, and is back this year - online at least), and he was starting to become more well known at that point.
