People magazine may have named actor Bradley Cooper their sexiest man alive for 2011, but what does the fresh-faced cutie look like now?

For his role in a new stage production of Bernard Pomerance’s 1977 play, The Elephant Man, Bradley plays Joseph Merrick an individual who is plagued by shocking deformities and Bradley has become so dedicated to the role that he doesn’t even look like himself.
