Every year People magazine announces who they think if the Sexiest Man Aive, and the recipient of that accolade for 2011 has just been revealed as Bradley Cooper, who follows in the footsteps of the likes of George Clooney, Johnny Depp and last year’s winner, Ryan Reynolds. It’s been a slightly controversial choice, as some disagree that he’s the hottest guy around – many feel Ryan Gosling was robbed – and so we decided to put together this Bradley Cooper photo retrospective so we can decide for ourselves just how hot he is!
He’s an odd one really, as sometimes he looks cutely nerdy and geeky, and then when the camera catches him from certain angle, he’s truly classically beautiful. It doesn’t hurt either that he looks good with his top off (as he has to prove in pretty much every movie he’s in).
But without further ado, click the images below to enlarge them and enjoy the career of Bradley Cooper, from Wet Hot American Summer (where he played gay) to Limitless, via Alias, Midnight Meat Train and, of course, The Hangover.
