People Magazine has released its pick for this year's Sexiest Man Alive. And the stud taking home this year's crown is actor Bradley Cooper. But is Cooper, 36, truly the sexiest man alive? Thousands of Ryan Gosling fans beg to differ. In fact they are protesting People's decision and want a recount!
As soon as the announcement was made, supporters of the 31-year-old Canadian hottie went online to complain and a petition has even popped up on Change.org asking for People mag to admit its mistake and "right this wrong".
"We believe People magazine made a huge mistake by choosing Bradley Cooper as the 2011 Sexiest Man Alive," the petition description says. "2011 was clearly the year of Ryan Gosling and we demand that People magazine give Ryan his own magazine cover."
The petition was created by BuzzFeed, and at last check 1,749 fans have signed it.
In addition to posting 63 photos of Gosling as 63 reasons why Cooper "definitely isn't the Sexiest Man Alive," BuzzFeed asked readers and fans to print out Ryan Goslings mask and protest in front of the People magazine offices Thursday afternoon in New York City.
So let's play a game of would you rather. Would you rather play for team Gosling or team Cooper?
