Bradley Cooper, star of The Hangover, The Hangover 2 and Limitless, has been named the Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine. The 36-year-old Georgetown alum beat out other Hollywood noteworthies, including Ryan Gosling and Idris Elba. People interviewed Mr. Cooper, who said that he thinks he is a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, says Cooper, and other times I look horrifying.

Though Cooper dated actress Renee Zellweiger for two years, the couple broke up in March. Though rumors flew that Cooper was seeing singer Jennifer Lopez this fall, he maintains that he is currently single. If you're a single man and you happen to be in this business, you're deemed a player. But I don't see myself as a ladies' man.

Cooper has also been in the news for his various upcoming projects, as well as what might have been. Concept art for a remake of the dark '90s action film The Crow that would have starred Cooper has surfaced and can be seen on Cooper's upcoming work includes Words, a drama in which he co-stars with Zoe Saldana, The Place Beyond the Pines, co-starring Ryan Gosling, and the action-romantic comedy, Outrun, with a panoply of stars that includes Kristin Chenowith and Kristen Bell.
