Ugh, this is like the 2008 elections all over again, except without the indelible historical consequences. WE HOPE. Having been named People‘s Sexiest Man Alive last month, Bradley Cooper appeared on Britain’s The Graham Norton Show to acknowledge what the majority of America seem to believe: Ryan Gosling is even sexier than he. “It’s so awful that I’m admitting this, but the hell with it: There was such a backlash when they announced it. Ryan Gosling, who I love, and I just made a movie with him and he’s the greatest,” Bradley says, remarking of recent paparazzi photos: “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.” So what happens to the universe when the Sexiest Man Alive has his own Sexiest Man Alive? We feel like a wormhole might open up. On the other side of that wormhole? George Clooney, rubbing his hands together and biding his time.
Relax, we’re not actually going to give you diet tips on this, the most holy of holidays for food lovers. We’re merely suggesting that if you’re anything like us, it’s hard to remember that there will be consequences if we ask for second helpings of mashed potatoes and pie. We slip into a food coma and wake up just long enough to eat the leftovers. So we thought we’d provide this little visual inspiration: 24 hot celebrities — from Britney Spears to Henry Cavill, Pippa Middleton to Hugh Jackman, Adriana Lima to Jennifer Lopez — who have bodies we’d basically kill to have, and who work hard to get them. Maybe seeing them jog, lift weights and strut their assets will inspire you to get off the couch. Or you might just want to sit back and enjoy the view while munching on a turkey leg. That’s the kind of freedom those pilgrims came here to attain, isn’t it?
Aw, remember when Bradley Cooper was just a sweet newspaper reporter with an unrequited crush on his superspy best friend? We doubt Alias‘ Will would believe today’s news — that Brad is People‘s Sexiest Man Alive — but the rest of us aren’t so surprised. Especially not those of us who saw this video of him speaking French. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hdsoFZxk7DU Just don’t forget those of us who loved you way back when!
Casper Smart is the new man on Jennifer Lopez‘s block, according to The Insider. Who exactly is he? Giving us Cris Judd deja vu, Smart is one of J.Lo’s backup dancers. He’s the “mystery man” the paps spotted the singer with a couple of times in New York. One of those occasions was right after the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, and we all agree that Jenny looked seriously hot at the event. A source also told People, “Yes, they are dating and having a good time. They’ve been getting more open with their flirting for weeks.”
Looks like Wendy Williams was right about Jennifer and Bradley Cooper.
The always opinionated Wendy Williams chatted with VH1 News’ Janell Snowden at the Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards last night, where Jennifer Lopez was honored. Williams, no stranger to relationship drama herself, told us that she thinks J.Lo and her ex-hubby Marc Anthony will be back together in 10 years. “I like them as a couple,” she said.
But what about Jen’s rumored fling with the sexy Bradley Cooper, he of the hot, slicked-back hair? “Oh, he doesn’t want her!” she sassed. “She’s got two kids, she’s in her 40s. I think that he’s using her like she’s using him, for pictures and press and pop culture.”
Which Wendy is OK with, of course. “That’s fine,” she told us. “But what 30-something year-old man wants a 40-something year-old woman with two kids and an ex-husband with a machete in the bushes?”
Looks like Kim Kardashian’s divorce from Kris Humphries is now official. “After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” Kim said in a statement to E! News. “I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.” Meanwhile, new hubby Kris sounds a lot less thrilled about the announcement, saying in a statement, “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce … I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.” They still had that new marriage smell, too!
While Kim and Kris might be ready to sign those divorce papers only 72 days after their nuptials, they are nowhere near the first celebrity couple to bail out of their wedded bliss just weeks or months after walking down the aisle. From Mario Lopez to Britney Spears, Liz Taylor to Lisa Marie Presley, let’s look back at our favorite shortest Hollywood marriages:
Of course they did. How did we not predict this? When Jennifer Lopez and Bradley Cooper went out on a dinner date last night, we should’ve been all like “we know” as opposed to “OH MY GOD”! Bradley in our opinion is Hollywood’s Rico Suave. If there is anyone to usher in a lady into her newly single life, he’s the guy. That lady happens to be J.Lo — the only woman who, in our opinion, could make mincemeat out of guys like Brad. They.Must.Date.
The two went out on a “romantic” date to Per Se in New York and how awesome would it have been to be a fly on the wall around them? Do you think they talked about how pretty they are? They did, didn’t they!
Yesterday we swooned over Bradley Cooper‘s 20 Sexiest Looks, today we are dy-ing (Nous sommes morts, right?) over the man parlez-vous-ing in perfect French. It’s as if he sat in that big comfy leather chair in his old Vermont farmhouse (work with us here), and asked himself, while gently stroking both the cashmere scarf around neck and the three-legged rescue dog at his side: “What can I do to appear sexy, sensitive, intelligent and charming all at once? Aha! I’ve got it. I will learn to speak French fluently and then casually drop my skills on a French TV show. My plan is hatched! Now, off to pick fresh herbs from my garden and make pasta from scratch.”
Does it matter what he’s talking about? Probably Hangover 2, but we don’t care. Just close your eyes, sit back and enjoy.
Bradley Cooper does things to us. It’s that slightly cocky vibe he rocks so well — the stubble, the gelled hair, the closed mouth smile. He’s a gentleman, sure, but it feels like there’s a slightly dirty side lurking right below the surface, and that’s the side of BCoop that gets under our skin. The guy’s got major box office swagger; Hangover 2 had the biggest Memorial Day opening of all time ($137 million) and the biggest opening for a comedy, ever. But he’s also the kinda guy who dates a fellow movie star for two years and never says a peep about it. Such an enigma, this one. To top it off, he is always put together no matter the occasion. Perfectly pleated pants, expertly tousled hair, a casual scarf draped gently around his neck. Whoever dresses Bradley knows a sea of lusting eyes await him at every event, and boy does the dude deliver. His 20 Sexiest Looks await you below.
