Bradley Cooper appeared on The Graham Norton Show in the U.K. this past week and dropped a little production nugget — the third Hangover film will be set in Los Angeles and shoot this September — but, more importantly, he addressed the controversy over whether he should have been named People’s Sexiest Man Alive over Ryan Gosling. Turns out, despite his irresistible Francophilia, B-Coop is kinda on your side! “It’s so awful that I’m admitting this, but the hell with it: There was such a backlash when they announced it [from people who favor] Ryan Gosling, who I love, and I just made a movie with him and he’s the greatest,” said Cooper, who claimed that a friend sent him the link to a website comparing paparazzi photos of the two actors. “And when I say ‘friend,’ I mean me alone, looking at the computer,” cracked Cooper. “It’s [paparazzi shots of Gosling] walking around, and he literally looks like he’s in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway. The peacoat is like this, with the scarf! And then there’s ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never comes out of his house.” Can’t this matter be settled by public wrestling? Hand these men their singlets!
