It’s that time of the year again … time for People magazine to crown this year’s Sexiest Man Alive. The folks at People have compiled a list of the sexiest men in Hollywood and have determined that one man is the sexiest of all … and that man is Bradley Cooper. Bradley is featured on the cover and in the pages of this week’s special issue of People but the mag is packed full of other sexy men … from Chris Evans to Joel McHale and everyone in between.

Sure, he’s easy on the eyes, but there’s more to 2011′s Sexiest Man Alive Bradley Cooper than dazzling baby blues and a killer smile. Ladies, take note: this Georgetown grad can whip up dinner, take you for a spin on his motorcycle and whisper sweet nothings in French (he’s fluent!). Just don’t try convincing him what a catch he is. “I think it’s really cool that a guy who doesn’t look like a model can have this [title],” says the Hangover actor, 36. “I think I’m a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.” Another reason to love him? Cooper, whose father Charles passed away in January, is especially close with his mom, Gloria. When he learned he’d been crowned Sexiest Man Alive, the “first thing I thought,” he says, “was, ‘My mother is going to be so happy.’” So what’s the truth about his dating status? Cooper, who was with Renée Zellweger for two years until their split in March and has been spotted out with Jennifer Lopez in recent months, says he’s a “single 36-year-old male.” “If you’re a single man and you happen to be in this business,” he says, “you’re deemed a player. But I don’t see myself as a ladies’ man.”

Aww … Bradley. While I wouldn’t personally name him THE sexiest man alive, I can’t say that I can argue with People magazine’s decision to name him so. Whether you agree with this annual list or not, you have to admit that it’s a fun little thing to look forward to each Fall. You’re gonna hafta pick up this week’s issue of People magazine to see ALL of the sexy men they feature this year but I’m thinking it’s worth the effort. People always complies really great lists like this. What do y’all think of the sexy men featured above? Any sexy dudes that YOU hope made the cut this year?
