Bradley Cooper went for a walk in New York yesterday. The paps said he was “enjoying the sunset”. Check him out, like he’s in an Asian karaoke video, walking along, listening to his feelings? You ever been to an Asian karaoke? To me, they’re the only ones worth going to for the private rooms, the song selection, and the snack options. Anyway, back in the day, they’d give you Peter Cetera over the visuals of people ambling along the beach, with birds flying in the background.

Anyway, as you can see, Coop is really playing it here. At one point he even sat down to gaze contemplatively at the river. What are Coop’s deep thoughts? Is he reminiscing about his reign as PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive 2011? Which, supposedly, is the year Ryan Gosling turned it down?

Thing is, if he’d been named the Sexiest Man Alive this year, yeah, ready. Four years ago, it may have been too early.
