It’s that time of year again when we start handing out awards and honors to famous people, sometimes only to make them more famous. And Bradley Cooper, who is quite handsome and, yes, sexy, was awarded for his looks and got the honor to grace the cover of People‘s annual Sexiest Man Alive issue. While that other popular hottie Ryan Gosling got an honorary mention in the issue (it also lauded Liam Hemsworth’s jawline and the perpetually furrowed brow of Chris Evans, among others), Gosling’s fans are pretty upset that he didn’t get the title that went to Cooper.
Today, while thousands of people were in lower Manhattan protesting the eviction of Occupy Wall Street from Zuccotti Park and the uneven distribution of wealth in the United States, a group of Gosling’s devotees stood outside of People‘s headquarters with Gosling masks and handwritten signs to protest the recent issue. Of course, the stunt was organized by Buzzfeed, who recently held a candlelight vigil outside the Kardashians’ Soho store, Dash, following the news that Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from husband Kris Humphries.
Sadly, the attempt to occupy the media might not prove too successful, but at least the police presence was kept to a minimum.
