Bradley Cooper is the 2011 Sexiest Man Alive! Hi there, I'm Lauren Bradshaw, and we're counting down five reasons why the handsome actor is so deserving of People magazine's coveted title in today's PopSugar Rush! Number 1: He really is sexy. From steamy photo shoots to shirtless scenes on the big screen, Bradley has even made fans in some of Hollywood's most gorgeous women. CHARLIZE THERON: Those rock hard abs, that sexy stubble. And did we mention those eyes? ELLEN DEGENERES: "I look at your eyes and I go, wow, those are some blue eyes." Number 2: He's leading man material. Bradley started with memorable parts in TV shows like Sex and the City and Alias and worked his way up to funny supporting roles in comedies like Wedding Crashers . . . BRADLEY COOPER: Right? Right? . . . but it was The Hangover that really put him on the map. This past year he's proven that he has the chops to be a Hollywood leading man with a starring part in the film's sequel and in Limitless where he went toe-to-toe to De Niro himself. BRADLEY COOPER: "Well, in order for a career to evolve, I have to move on." Number 3: He's smart! Bradley studied English at Georgetown University, but he also picked up fluent French in college while in a student exchange program . . . BRADLEY: [Bradley speaking French] . . . making him a perfect mix of brains and good looks. Number 4: He's sensitive. Remember this clip from Inside the Actors Studio were a visibly moved Bradley struggled to hold back his tears? But sweet Bradley is also close with his mom, and upon hearing about his sexiest man alive title, his first reaction to the news was, "My mother is going to be so happy." And finally, he worked for it! BRADLEY COOPER: Zach and Ed are helping me out. We have a great little grassroots campaign. We're starting virally, we're handing out fliers at the Grove on the weekends, and we feel good about it. Bradley joked to Ellen earlier this year that he had already begun his campaign for the Sexiest Man Alive title, and well, we'd hate to see all that effort go to waste. Congrats, Bradley — you certainly deserve it!
