Cooper inherits the cherished title from last year's recipient, Ryan Reynolds.
The actor put himself in contention for the Humblest Hottie Alive 2011 as well, opining, "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this [title]. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."
As for his initial reaction when he was told of the honor?
"First thing I thought was, 'My mother is going to be so happy."
Awww … is this guy a basket full of puppies and rainbows, or what?
