When Bradley Cooper snagged 'People Magazine's Sexiest Man of the Year' title, the backlash came hard and fast. In fact, a group of Ryan Gosling fans actually "occupied' the sidewalk in front of People's New York  headquarters in protest of their man not being the choice.

Well, it turns out Cooper himself is in full agreement with the protesters' gripes.

'The Hangover' star told Graham Norton that once he won the award he started checking out pictures of Gosling -- which quickly made Cooper realize that no matter what People had concluded Gosling was by far the sexier man.

"And it’s like [Gosling] walking around and he literally looks like he’s in a photo shoot, like he just came off the runway," Cooper told Norton. "There are [photos] of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never really comes out of his house, and when he does, you’re like, ‘Maybe you should just stay in.’"

Watch Cooper melt hearts with his self-deprecating ways in the video below.
