Bradley Cooper Named Sexiest Man Alive

20 Nov 2011

Why Ryan Gosling's fans are protesting the poll

Bradley Cooper has scooped the People poll for Sexiest Man Alive. The magazine named the A-list hunk in the top spot ahead of 122 other “super hot guys”.

"I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this," Bradley told People magazine.

"I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying. "

Other men in the line-up included Brad Pitt, George Clooney, Ty Burrell, Seth MacFarlane and of course, the 2010 winner Ryan Gosling.

However, as news broke of Bradley’s win, Ryan’s fans took to the streets of New York outside the People magazine office to protest.

The group of pro-Ryan fans waved posters that read "Ryan was robbed”. According to reports, the protesters were also heard yelling, "One, two, three, four, Bradley Cooper's such a bore. Five, six, seven, eight, Ryan Gosling's super great!". Ouch!

Tell us if you think Ryan should have won for a second year running, or if People made the right decision crowning Bradley the Sexiest Man Alive for 2011…
