Bradley Cooper Thinks Ryan Gosling is Sexier

Bradley Cooper apparently agrees Ryan Gosling is sexier, too. In an effort to show People their vehement disapproval, and to also protest something that definitely doesn't matter, fans with too much time on their hands stood outside of the magazine's headquarters and chanted, "Bradley Cooper is just fine, but Ryan Gosling is divine."

Cooper told The Graham Norton Show, "There was such a backlash. Ryan and I were both in Paris this last week and a friend of mine showed me photographs from the paparazzi . And when I say 'friend,' I mean me, alone in my room, looking at the computer," explained Cooper. "And it’s like him walking around and he literally looks like he’s in a photoshoot, like he just came off the runway ... There are [photos] of me, and I literally look like the neighbor who never really comes out of his house, and when he does, you’re like, ‘Maybe you should just stay in." Oh, ok, Quasi Moto.

Movie Theaters to Begin Serving Alcohol

If you forgot your smuggling supplies, and you don't know how you're going to survive the newest Bradley Cooper rom-com, fear no more. You might just be able to numb the pain by tossing back a beer.

A new state law will allow movie theaters to serve alcohol -- as long they "have table seating and a full restaurant menu selection."

The law will allow more venues to offer dinner and a movie with a legitimate alcohol license, and will allow theaters like Williamsburg's Nitehawk Cinema and Greenwich Village's Angelika Film Center to add alcohol to their cafe menus. But big name cinemas like AMC are also tapping the keg -- they already serve alcohol in New Jersey, and are quickly readying themselves to make their New York locations booze-friendly.

The Hangover Part II

It's one of the most expected movies of the year.

Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) are back, and in trouble again! You just have to look at the poster to guess that these four guys are up to their old antics...

This time they will be reunited in Thailand for Stu's wedding (you know the one who lost a tooth in Las Vegas). According to the studios, Stu decides on a "safe, subdued pre-wedding brunch," instead of a wild bachelor party before he ties the knot. "However, things don't always go as planned," says the studio release. "What happens in Vegas may stay in Vegas, but what happens in Bangkok can't even be imagined."

Wait, is that a monkey? A shaved head? And a face tattoo on that poster?

The Hangover Part II will be released in theatres on May 26th.
