Foxy Francophile Bradley Cooper Anointed Sexiest Man Alive

Every year the baby Jesus himself floats down from the heavens for his version of Rumspringa, takes in a Chippendales show and then stumbles on over to meet with the good people at People magazine to officially anoint the annual Sexiest Man Alive. This year it's … pause for effect … Bradley Cooper! Even those who think he's an average actor, acclaimed beard or looks bad in makeup, there's no denying the fluent French speaker is a right bit of yum. Hats off, baby Jesus. [People]


Normally, we'd go for the eyes, nose and throat of anyone trying to get close to our collective boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but Lindsey Ann Miller is our new hero. Lindsey, who has pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer, is using the shitty card she's been dealt and parlaying it into a potential date with the comely actor – uploading a video asking him out after seeing him in cancer comedy 50/50. "After seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt's performance and seeing/reading some of his subsequent interviews about the film I thought, 'This guy gets it. And he's cute, I wonder if I could ever run into him somewhere,'" she writes on her blog. "But even though I live in LA, it seems impossible to find him. Maybe YouTube can help…" Well played, Lindsey, well played. [E!]

Systematically missing out on sleep makes non-meth users want to cry blood, but Michelle Williams's handlers took things to a whole other level when it comes to avoiding said eyeball bleeding. Flying to Detroit – where she's filming Oz: The Great And Powerful, yay! – from New York on a private jet, the poor little kitten fell asleep so they asked the pilot to circle for 90 minutes above the destination airport so she could keep snoozing. Now, I was never very good at Monopoly, but aren't private jets really, really expensive? Though check back tomorrow morning at 6am and I'll likely give you my ATM card, pin and social security number for 30 minutes more of sweet zees. [Page Six]


Sorry Julia Roberts and co., but the newly released trailer for Mirror, Mirror confirms what we already expected – that it's pretty much going to suck in comparison to the darker Snow White And The Huntsman. Though we can kind of appreciate the camp yet predictable comedic touch, this is undone by the cloying Disney-ness of it all. [E!]

It's a rare day when Patti LaBelle hits the gossip pages, but with accusations that she yelled obscenities at a baby, let's hope she's here to stay! Filing a lawsuit against her, Kevin and Roseanna Monk, a kindergarten teacher, allege that she got all mad-like because their then-18-month-old kid was running around the lobby of a Manhattan apartment. Asking why they were letting their child run amok, Patti then started screaming at them, throwing water in their faces and a fist in Rebecca's direction. Violence aside, if it's true I'm totally on Team LaBelle. Parents who flat-out refuse to control their precious angels are the worst. [NYDN]

Amy Adams is a fan of the muffin top, taking a dig at other actresses who seem to have galvanised steel vaginas and jump on exercise bikes in the weeks following their birthy times. "I read about these actresses who get on a stationary bike two weeks after giving birth and I'm like, ‘What? Where did you push your baby out of?'" she said. "Since having Aviana, I have a muffin top, and that's okay right now." [People]
