Bradley Cooper Speechless When Asked His Pick for Next 'Sexiest Man Alive' (VIDEO)
He seems to say all the right things at the right times. Except when he's asked to choose a piece of man candy.
"Oh God," a flummoxed Bradley Cooper stammered to Celebuzz when we asked who he thinks should be People magazine's next "Sexiest Man Alive."
How did the actor handle the curveball?
Cooper, making an appearance at Tuesday's Hollywood premiere of his new drama, The Words, awkwardly stumbled for an answer before eventually deciding on silence.
The 37-year-old was picked by People as its Sexiest Man Alive in 2011; the long-running honor has been previously bestowed upon Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, George Clooney -- and even Harry Hamlin (in 1987).
It is generally regarded as a hot talking point -- but ultimately a platform for punchlines among famous men.
What the 37-year-old did offer on Tuesday was details of his upcoming comedy Hangover 3, which he revealed was set to begin filming the very next day. In fact, Cooper had a camera test for the flick earlier on Tuesday, just before the Words premiere.
Cooper also divulged that Hangover 3 will be going in a different direction than its two predecessors, saying, "I can confirm that."
But the hunk, who recently starred in the comedy Hit and Run, then played coy, only adding that he's "thrilled" to start shooting Hangover 3.
He certainly should be: the bromance franchise has been one of the most successful comedy series in movie history.
