Bradley Cooper has been crowned People's Sexiest Man Alive for 2011, and it's started a war here at Wetpaint Entertainment. Some crazy people of our staff think he's a sub-par choice, while we sane ones others couldn't be happier. To be fair to everyone, we've decided to present both sides of the argument.

Honestly, here on Team Bradley, we've a little confused about why a simple picture of him isn't enough evidence of his worthiness, but apparently people need to hear more. So, without further ado, here are five reasons Bradley definitely deserves the title:

1. He's an action star

What's sexier than a guy who kicks butt, even if only on screen? Bradley was a valuable asset to the action-oriented TV show Alias back before he broke big, and he really proved he has that sexy action star quality in The A-Team. He can kick down our front door any day.

2. He's funny

Bradley's breakout role in The Hangover is just one of many hilarious parts he's held over the years. A guy who can look this good while making us split our sides laughing deserves any and every award.

3. He's smart

He's got the brawn, he's got the humor, and guess what? He's also got the brains. Before perusing a career in acting, Bradley graduated from the Honors English program at Georgetown University. He also got his MFA at the Actors School for Drama at The New School University.

4. He athletic and adventurous

Did you know Bradley used to host the Discovery Channel's Treks in a Wild World? Well he did, and that means he spent his summers adventuring around the world, facing and overcoming physical challenges in exotic locals, which is basically the coolest thing ever.

5. He's utterly charming — in French!

Bradley's not just a sweetheart — he's a sweetheart who speaks French, which automatically quadruples anyone's sexiness quotient. For proof, we leave you with this video:
