The Sexiest Man Alive Kisses Baby and Becomes Sexier

Jennifer Lawrence of The Hunger Games fame recently posted a photo on Instagram of People Magazine‘s Sexiest Man Alive Bradley Cooper kissing her baby nephew (and he isn’t even running for a political office!) Although the baby looks somewhat unimpressed or perhaps just sleepy, the picture is adorable, and Cooper appears to be having a great time with the tike.

Does this make the man even sexier? Um … I think most women would say so. Now, if he’d just speak French while holding a baby, a lot of women would probably explode.

Lawrence and Cooper are in Prague shooting a period epic called Serena, which is based on the Ron Rash novel about a couple in the 1930s who plot a murder. The film also stars Rhys Ifans and Toby Jones and is directed by Susanne Bier. We’ll have to wait until 2013 for its release, but we can see the pair in another film together before that.

Lawrence and Cooper wrapped The Silver Linings Playbook last year, which is set to be released in November 2012. David O. Russell directed it based on the Matthew Quick novel, and it also stars Robert DeNiro and Julia Stiles.

Cooper will play The Elephant Man on stage at the Williamstown Theatre Festival in Massachusetts this summer, a role he took on as a student at the Actors Studio. (I’ll be there.)

Word is that he wasn’t all that happy about his Sexiest Man title. It isn’t exactly a serious actor moniker, but it hasn’t hurt Brad Pitt or George Clooney. Sorry, Mr. Cooper, but you just can’t fight the sexy. (If you still aren’t convinced, read my 20 reasons why he deserved the accolade. And since there are no trailers available yet for his upcoming films, check out his smoldering turn on TV a few years ago in an ill-fated show called Kitchen Confidential.)

    Jane, couldn’t agree with you more…kissing that baby seals the deal.

      It can’t be denied, can it, Jan?

        Thanks, Jan! Yeah, Melanie’s the writer and Bradley Cooper girl, but I totally agree! You wonder what he’ll do next to up his sexy factor.

    Nothing beats a strong man being all tender and cute with a baby. Now if he spoke french while doing that it could get too much! Or maybe there is no such thing as too much beauty…

      Somebody else said her ovaries would explode. Ha!

        I wanted to keep it clean…:-D

        The thread drift on these comments is awesome!

    He IS very cute and appealing. Too bad that baby doesn’t think so!

    1. Melanie Votaw Avatar

      Ha! I suspect the baby is just tired.

    Bradley Cooper is sexy doing anything. I would love to see him holding a puppy, though. 🙂

    1. Jane Boursaw Avatar

      A puppy! Or like, a panda or something. Really, anything.

    Gawd….he is so hot. And he seems like such a “cool” guy. I think the first interview I saw was on David Letterman, and he was so down to earth.

      He does seem like a really cool guy.

        I have interacted with his sister a bit on Facebook. She seems fun and very nice.

    I didn’t think anyone could channel Face in A-Team, but I thought Cooper was great.

    1. Melanie Votaw Avatar

      Yeah, he was terrific as Face.

    Babies make men so sexy, don’t they? Every man looks better holding a baby.

      Of course every man looks better holding with one hand a baby, in the other a puppy, speaking something in french, like omlette au fromage. I know, I was mean.

      We were just talking about how my husband did most of the diaper-changing around here. Now *that’s sexy!

      1. Melanie Votaw Avatar

        Yes, indeed, Jane!

    Have meant to check out Kitchen Confidential — for research purposes, mind — thanks for the reminder.

    1. Melanie Votaw Avatar

      It’s a great cast all around, and the writing is good. Fast-paced, sexy, outrageous comedy, but well done.

  9. Melanie Votaw Avatar

    Yes, indeed, Jane!
