The response to Bradley Cooper's win for People's "Sexiest Man Alive" was met with a massive outcry from Ryan Gosling fanatics (including us) — an uproar so loud even The Hangover star heard about it. And now, in a rare moment of male camaraderie, Cooper has been gracious enough to agree with everyone that Gosling is damn sexy! Dear 'People': Ryan Gosling Was Robbed Of "Sexiest Man Alive"
Cooper, 36, who's hoping for a Hangover 3, appeared on BBC's Graham Norton Show in London this weekend where the topic of "Gosling vs. Cooper" came up. According to E! Online, being the nice guy that he is, Cooper said:
"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, there was photographs from paparazzi... And it was of him walking around, and he literally looks like he's in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway. With, like, the peacoat, is like this," he said, mimicking an upturned collar, "with the scarf, and there's ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor that never comes out of his house and when he does it makes you go, like, maybe he should just stay in."
Sounds like Cooper is half in love with 31-year-old Gosling like the way his fans are! (Watch the full interview here). Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes Romance Each Other In Paris
Cooper described the backlash as "intense," but added, "Thank God, nothing has physically happened to me."
He's willing to take it all in stride and says he has other things on his mind besides his sex appeal factor. "I'm finally at an age—I'm 36 years old—where I finally don't care about anything like that anymore, which is a wonderful thing. And then this happened, and I started to realize how not sexy I am."
To his credit, Gosling's fans sure aren't helping his self-esteem! But, we think he's hysterical (and that adds to his sexy points). We sympathize with you Coop! 10 Best New Celebrity Couples Of 2011
