Bradley Cooper won the title of “Sexiest Man Alive” from the editors of People magazine, but a whole bunch of Ryan Gosling fans are demanding a recount.

They have even drafted a petition in support of Gosling. It reads:

“We believe People Magazine made a huge mistake by choosing Bradley Cooper as the 2011 Sexiest Man Alive. 2011 was clearly the year of Ryan Gosling and we demand that People Magazine give Ryan his own magazine cover. Together, we can right this wrong.”

As of this morning, over 1,500 Gosling lovers had signed the petition.

The 31-year-old Canadian actor certainly seems to be having a good year. He has starred in three films this year, including his latest, “Ides of March,” AND broke up a New York City street fight. He’s also been a good sport about the wildly popular “Hey Girl” internet meme that celebrates his sensitive dude-ness.
