Sexiest man title is a joke: Cooper

BRADLEY Cooper says being crowned Sexiest Man Alive is a "bit of a joke".

The 'Hangover' star was recently awarded the annual title by People magazine and although he was honoured to win he tries not to take it too seriously and hopes it won't detract from his work.

He told Yahoo! omg!: "It's been a weird couple of weeks, I did originally laugh and then I just started crying.

"I'm glad it doesn't detract from my work, I hope it doesn't! It would be unfortunate it if did because I'm not really that guy at all.

"I guess it's a bit of a joke, I hope that it won't change things."

Bradley has previously revealed he was shocked with his win because he sometimes thinks he can look "horrifying".

He explained: "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this [title]. I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."
