    People magazine clearly has a different definition of sexy than I do. Cooper has gorgeous eyes, but beyond that, meh.

    Congrats to him anyway though. :)

    Oh, rubbish. The world's sexiest man is Alan Rickman.

    Apparently Derek Hough is also named as one of the "sexy men"

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

    Bradley Cooper's not bad-looking, and he won me over with his fluent French, so....I'm not complaining about this choice :grope:

    I thought he was super hot back in his Alias days, but nowadays he does nothing for me.

    Besides, the sexiest man alive is clearly Alexander Skarsgard. Goodness can that man wear a suit.

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

    Brandon does not do it for me.

    Where are the actors like Henry Cavill(Former The Tudors actor who is in the movie Immortals and the New Superman). The man is sublime. Henry Cavill in the Tudors

    No Jason Momoa(Drago from Game of Thrones) or Chris Hemsworth(Thor) and Manu Bennett(Crixus character from the Starz series Spartacus). Jason and Manu are SEX ON A STICK.

    I've got to give a few points to anybody who speaks fluid french.

    But my vote is for Idris Elba, all day, every day!:swoon:

    I feel like they pick the same-looking guy every year. He's pleasant to look at, but I find him interchangeable with Ryan whats-his-name and Matthew McConaghey and... :yawn:

    FSU's PSOTY picks/winners are hotter than People's "Man of the Year".

    I have a feeling that Bradley Cooper smells a lot nicer than Matthew McConaghey!

    It's about time that Whoopi Goldberg won Sexiest Man Alive.

    The world's most sexiest teacher-or at least he was at Hogwarts. ;)

    I didn't recognize the name 'Bradley Cooper' but I recognized the face. He's okay but to me Johnny Depp, Donnie Wahlberg, and yes Alan Rickman are far sexier. :D

    I agree with you, but Alex isn't close to being a household name yet. Maybe next year, if Battleship, What Maisie Knew and The East do well. But he was listed as one of their Sexy at Any Age men. But at least Alex has his 5 times Sweden's Sexiest Man title (I believe a record) to fall back on. And his dad even recently joked about Alex dethroning him (Stellan was their sexiest the year before) and how Alex had to upstage him by getting it 5 times.

    I would have loved if Neil Patrick Harris got picked. NPH is undeniably sexy, and how amazing would it be for an openly gay man to get the title?

    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:

    The only one they have pictured who really appeals to me is Ryan Gosling.

    This thing is as much about PR as anything else, so I predict that Henry Cavill will get it the year after next, aka when Superman comes out.

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

    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. :swoon:

    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.

    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)

    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.
