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!
The rest of the People list includes an eclectic, but undeniably hot mix of actors: Hunger Games hottie Liam Hemsworth, his big bro’s Thor co-star Idris Elba, Jennifer Aniston‘s sweetie Justin Theroux, Captain America himself Chris Evans, country superstar Tim McGraw, The Good Wife‘s Josh Charles (he’ll always be Dan from Sports Night to us!), comedy crush Joel McHale, Game of Thrones warrior Jason Momoa, most-obvious-choice-in-the-world Ryan Gosling, even-sexier-with-age Alec Baldwin and so-delish-he-distracts-us-from-screaming American Horror Story star Dylan McDermott.

Now that she’s starred in a a movie (Country Strong) and a television show (Glee) where she’s gotten to show off her vocal prowess, Gwyneth Paltrow is ready for a more musical career. The actress told Entertainment Weekly that not only is she considering a role in the film version of Broadway’s Rock of Ages musical, but she also wants to go on tour. An actual music tour.
Paltrow, who made friends with her Country Strong co-star Tim McGraw, said that the country singer “keeps joking that I should go on the road as his opening act. And I keep saying, ‘Let’s do it. Let’s make it happen.’ I don’t know about a whole tour but maybe a string of nights could be fun.” Not that she wants to overshadow hubby and Coldplay singer Chris Martin, however, as she adds “I’m not sure I would ever quit my current job and become a full-time singer. I love my day job and we already have a musician in the family.”
As for Rock of Ages, Paltrow isn’t the only star power considering the movie. The film, which uses 80s rock music to tell the story of a couple’s relationship, is also trying to get Tom Cruise as the male lead. Wait, does he even sing? Neither of star is committed to the film but we would be fascinated if they paired up for it. Completely fascinated.
