When People Magazine uncovered the face of Bradley Cooper as its 2011 choice for “The Sexiest Man Alive,” people took to the streets. It wasn’t that they detested Cooper, it was that Ryan Gosling had been egregiously subbed and “robbed” of the title. Gosling supporters met one another at People’s headquarters in New York City. To boost their own moral and stamina, they chanted: “One, two, three, four/ Bradley Cooper is a bore/ Five, six, seven eight/Ryan Gosling’s super great.”
Apparently, almost 2,000 people have signed on to a Change.org petition demanding that the actor who made hearts melt in 2004’s The Notebook be given a cover. The snub and reaction has received a lot of publicity because 2011 was a breakout year for Gosling. He starred in the summer hit Crazy, Stupid, Love. and in two critically acclaimed fall films: Drive and Ides of March.
George Clooney starred with Gosling in the last film, and he teased the press with the following remarks: “He [Gosling] really wants it. He’s been saying the whole time we were on the set of ‘Ides,’ he was like, ‘How did you pull that off?’” Clooney continued, “So I called up Brad Pitt and we worked with him for weeks on the walk, we told him how to train, everything.”
