Bradley Cooper was named Wednesday as People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2011.
In securing the title, the 36-year-old "Hangover" star joins an elite group of Hollywood heartthrobs previously crowned "Sexiest Man ..." by the magazine, including George Clooney, Brad Pitt and last year's winner, Ryan Reynolds.
Cooper said his first thought upon hearing of the accolade was, "My mother's going to be so happy!"
"I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this. I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying," Cooper added.
But despite a string of high-profile romances, Cooper denied that he was a "ladies' man," adding that he is currently single.
"If you're a single man and you happen to be in this business, you're deemed a player. But I don't see myself as a ladies' man," he said.
