Bradley Cooper, the latest Hollywood heartthrob, has been named as the sexiest man alive by People magazine, Wednesday.

I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this, he told the magazine. I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.

My mother is going to be so happy, Cooper said, when he learned of the lastest accolade.

Cooper, 36, is known for his piercing blue eyes and a killer smile.

Sometimes, the star has a bit of schadenfreude.

I laugh when people fall over, he told I laugh easily.

Cooper, still single, admitted that he woos the ladies with chivalry.

I had an old-fashioned upbringing, meaning that you walk on the outside of the sidewalk from the woman, open the door and never let them carry anything, he told

Cooper loves to cook, especially Italian food, reported. When he was a kid, he used to whip up dishes for his elementary school classmates.

Graduating from Georgetown University graduate, the star can ride a motorcycle and speak fluently in French, which sounds swoony.

According to People, Cooper's humility has added to his appeal.
