According to People Magazine, that is... He's topped their 2011 list, stealing the crown from last year’s number one Ryan Reynolds. Ryan didn't even feature on this year's top ten. We're a fickle bunch.

Naturally Bradley's delighted to have received the honour, even though he's not really sure why people find him attractive. Naww, so modest too.

"I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this [title]," he said. "I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying... First thing I thought was, 'My mother is going to be so happy'."

Bradley's romance with Renée Zellweger ended earlier this year and he's most recently been linked to Jennifer Lopez (which is a load of balls 'cause she's currently indulging in her lust for dancers, more on that in a minute), but the 36-year-old insists he isn't in a relationship at the moment, explaining rumours about his romantic liaisons are all part of his job. No sh*t.

The publication explained Bradley landed the top spot due to his "stunning looks, glittering career and romantic nature." Asked the most impressive thing he's ever done to lure a lady, Bradley said it would be boarding "a plane to go get her." Nope, still not doing it for me.

Also featured on the list is 21-year-old Liam Hemsworth, who is dating Miley Cyrus. Idris Elba, Jennifer Aniston's current arm fodder Justin Theroux, (not the) Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling (now that I do agree with) also get a mention.

People magazine’s Sexiest Men Alive 2011:

1. Bradley Cooper
2. Liam Hemsworth
3. Idris Elba
4. Justin Theroux
5. Chris Evans
6. Tim McGraw
7. Josh Charles
8. Joel McHale
9. Jason Momoa
10. Ryan Gosling

None of them are doing it for me (apart from Theroux and The Gosling). Seriously, People, SERIOUSLY...

That aside Brad Pitt, Colin Farrell, Johnny Depp and George Clooney are feeling rather elderly right about now.
