For those of you biting your nails, waiting for People Magazine to name their Sexiest Man Alive for 2011, we now have a winner.

It’s….’The Hangover 2′ star Bradley Cooper! See the full cover below.

The 36-year-old star of ‘The Hangover’ franchise, ‘The A-Team’ and ‘Alias’ is surprised but happy about the award, saying,

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.”

Why pick Cooper? The magazine says it’s because he can make dinner, he rides a motorcycle, he loves his mom and he’s fluent in French.

While these qualities definitely give the man sex appeal, is he really the sexiest man alive? Are we forgetting about the other 122 men up for the title this year?  What about fellow nominees Ryan Gosling,  Tim McGraw or Joel McHale, who showed that he can make even coffee preparation sexy?

PEOPLE cast their vote, but now it’s time to cast yours. Check out photos of Cooper and past ‘Sexiest Men Alive’ below, and then tell us who you think should have won the title by voting in our poll.
