Bradley Cooper

Rex

It's about time Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Johnny Depp were ousted from our fantasies - we're getting a little bored. And 34-year-old Bradley is the frontrunner for our most fancied man of the year (just look into those soulful baby blues and you'll understand why).

Currently making millions of us laugh ‘til our mascara runs in stag-night comedy The Hangover, he was also in He's Just Not That Into You earlier this year (and TV anoraks might recognise him as Will Tippin from Alias and Aidan Stone from Nip/Tuck.)

He is denying rumours that he and JenAn have hooked up and according to people.com said recently: "I've met her three times in my life. I'm very flattered. My Mom loves it but unfortunately it's not true."

Not that we're unhappy about that - it means he's single at least (his four-month marriage to actress Jennifer Esposito ended in 2007)

Here's 5 other things we thought you should know.

1. He has US size 14 (!) feet
2. He's half Irish and half Italian (we hope this makes him part cheeky chappy and part Italian stallion)
3. His acting career began with one episode of Sex and the City in 1998
4. He's seriously broody
5. He's going to be more on than off the big screen in the next year - there's Case 39 in September; New York I Love You and All About Steve coming soon and in 2010 he'll he'll play Lt Templeton "Faceman" Peck in the remake of The A-Team.

If he doesn't win People's "Sexiest Man Alive" title next year, we'll eat our Louboutins
