Bradley Cooper admits Ryan Gosling is one of the reasons he doesn’t feel like People’s Sexiest Man Alive.

“There was such a backlash to when they announced it and Ryan Gosling, who I love and I just did a movie with him — he’s the greatest — but we were both in Paris this last week and a friend of mine showed me … photographs from the paparazzi — and when I say friend, I mean me, alone in my room, looking at the computer. And it’s like him walking around and he literally looks like he’s in a photoshoot, like he just came off the runway, like the pea coat is like this with the scarf,” Bradley recounted on “The Graham Norton Show” in the UK over the weekend. “There are ones of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never really comes out of his house, and when he does, you’re like, ‘Maybe you should just stay in.’ We don’t know what he does in there. So it’s been interesting.”

Bradley jokingly called being named the Sexiest Man, “the worst,” adding, “it’s just so awful.”

“I’m finally at an age — I’m 36 years old — where I really don’t care about anything like that anymore, which is a wonderful thing and then this happened and then I started to realize just how not sexy I am,” he said.

“I have a lot of moments where [I’m] walking out and I’ll open up the door [and think to myself], ‘I could do that a lot sexier,’” he laughed.

In related news, Bradley, who was promoting the UK DVD release of “The Hangover Part II,” said he expects to start shooting the third installment in the film franchise next fall.

“I personally want to do it. I hope we’re gonna start shooting in September. [Director, co-writer] Todd Phillips is working on the script,” Bradley said.

The actor also noted the film will likely diverge from the first two vacation-buddy comedies.

“I think it’ll take place in Los Angeles and maybe not adhere to the structure. It might be different,” he explained.
