It’s that time of the year ladies.

People announced its list of the sexiest men alive, and topping this year’s list is “Hangover” star Bradley Cooper.

The blue-eyed actor took the title with some help from his looks and his brains. He is a Georgetown grad and is fluent in French, according to the entertainment magazine. Cooper also rides a motorcycle and can cook dinner.

“I think it’s really cool that a guy who doesn’t look like a model can have this [title],” Cooper told People. “I think I’m a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying.”

When the 36-year-old actor first heard the news that he was going to be splashed all over the cover of People with the title “The Sexiest Man Alive!” along side his picture, he thought of his mother, who he is especially close with.

The “first thing I thought was, ‘my mother is going to be so happy,’” said Cooper.

His stock in the acting world started to rise after his performance in “The Hangover” in 2009, and he has carried that momentum all the way to November of this year, helping him earn the title of best looking man.

In recent years he has also appeared in “The A-Team,” “Valentine’s Day,” “Limitless,” and “The Hangover Part II.”
