Think all this hubbub about Bradley Cooper being named People’s Sexiest Man Alive over Ryan Gosling this year is simply ridiculous? Tell that to a brokenhearted Gosling!

According to his Ides of March director/co-star — and two-time Sexiest Man — George Clooney, the Canadian-born actor “really want[ed] it.”

Clooney told Extra the night before it was announced, “[T]he whole time we were on the set of Ides, he was like, 'How did you pull that off?' So I called up Brad Pitt and we worked with him for weeks on the walk... we told him how to train... everything."

OK, so by now you get that Clooney was just having a little fun, much like when he offered to help his Ocean's Eleven co-star Matt Damon win the title. But something inside of us rather enjoyed the image of Pitt and Clooney critiquing Gosling’s walk, shouting out things like, “Make it work!”

In the end, we don’t need a magazine to tell us Ryan Gosling is anything less than scrumptious. Especially when you pour syrup all over him. Mmm...
