What do you do on after your last day as the sexiest man alive? Bradley Cooper joked, “We do a retreat, we have a retreat that we go on. [George] Clooney runs it. We go up to Lake Tahoe.”

Speaking with Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan on Live with Kelly and Michael Tuesday, Ripa then continued to joke that maybe there’s a chance he could repeat. However, it was reported last week that Channing Tatum will take the title from Cooper when People hits the news stands on Wednesday.

Earlier in the morning, Cooper joked with Matt Lauer on NBC’s Today, “There’s a whole decompression. After this I get whisked away to somewhere in Wisconsin and they talk me down for a week. I think Matt Damon started it. “

Cooper, 37, was working the morning show circuit to promote his new film, Silver Linings Playbook. which co-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Robert Deniro.

The Hangover star plays Pat, a man who is bipolar and is released from a mental institution, then moves in with his parents (Deniro and Jacki Weaver). He meets a mysterious girl, Tiffany (Lawrence).

Silver Linings Playbook was filmed in Philadelphia, Pa. near where Cooper is from. Given that most actors who star in Philly-set movies happen to be from New York, he says director David O’Russell wanted to make sure they did a good job representing the city. He tells Ripa and Strahan that the iconic DeNiro asked his uncle for help with his accent and lines.

“[Deniro’s uncle is] sitting in between Bob and David O’Russell and we went through the entire script,” says Cooper. “At the end of it, he walked out. There’s something about Philadelphia people. There’s a real confidence… He walked out and he’s like… ‘We’ll see how he does if he does it the way I said it.’ ”

Silver Linings Playbook is out in limited release this Friday and nationwide on Nov. 21.
