Without hesitation, Cooper suggested co-star Robert De Niro as his top pick, but just as soon as he got the words out, he reconsidered. Instead, the 37-year-old heartthrob offered his old pal and Hangover star Zach Galifianakis.
"He should be [the next Sexiest Man Alive]," he said. "He's very sexy."
