As you may now by now, our beloved Ryan Gosling has been robbed of the title of People‘s Sexiest Man Alive 2011 by the considerably less dreamboat-y Bradley Cooper. While it’s clear that this is a huge black mark on our nation’s history, we can only hope our Baby Goose will continue his training with previous SMA George Clooney and win twice as hard next year. That’s right, I said training.
In a red carpet interview with Extra at the L.A. premiere of The Descendants this past Tuesday, Clooney expressed his disappointment over the upset, explaining that he had been grooming Gosling for the position:
“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?’ So I called up Brad Pitt and we worked with him for weeks on the walk… we told him how to train… everything.”
