Turns out, when you've been chosen as People's Sexiest Man Alive, you often get asked to undress by total randos. Usually, you can, as a human being with agency, ignore those requests, but sometimes, when they come from someone as high up and overwhelmingly adored as Ellen DeGeneres (People's Sexiest Lover of Vest/Sneaker Combos, 2001-present), you sort of have to do it. So was the case with Bradley Cooper, anyway. Though the first time she asked, he resisted, the second time — when he was appearing on her show to promote Silver Linings Playbook — he gave in, but not without showing off his third, fourth and fifth nipples. Stars, they're just like us!

(JK, the nipples were fake and the Coops was just having a laugh.)

And here he is talking about fellow Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum. Watch it or, you know, go YouTube Ryan Gosling and Idris Elba videos instead.
