"Silver Linings Playbook" actor Bradley Cooper showed off his softer side as he graced the cover of British GQ magazine’s April 2013 issue. The newly single Hollywood hunk, who was named the "Sexiest Man Alive" in 2011, looked dapper in the photos shot by photographer Brigitte Lacombe. After posing for some pictures for the latest issue of British GQ, Bradley Cooper spoke candidly about his late father's last moments. Bradley's dad Charles Cooper died two years ago at the age of 71 after battling lung cancer. Losing his father has given the “Limitless” hunk a new kind of confidence and made him less concerned about things he can’t control. The smooth talking actor told the publication that he took the Oscar loss in stride because of the perspective his dad's death gave him. "I don’t want to win an Oscar," Bradley Cooper said. "It would change nothing. Nothing. The things in my life that aren’t fulfilled would not be fulfilled. Career-wise, right now, it’s better that I don’t win one. I don’t want to win. I don’t." During the interview with the mag, Bradley Cooper also shared that he was determined to take the role in one of 2009's biggest box office hits, “The Hangover” despite his friends opinions.
