Bradley CooperÂ may havenât won the title of âSexiest Man Aliveâ second year in a row, but heâs scored the award for best prank on Ellen DeGeneres.
The Hangover actor agreed to go shirtless but warned viewers and the host that he had a ‘disgusting’ secret, The Daily Mail writes.
“You asked me before, but I didn’t want to reveal too much,” Cooper told DeGeneres of why he didn’t take his shirt off on his last appearance. “I’ll show you why.”
The actorÂ unbuttoned his shirt, confessing: “I have a third nipple – is that not weird? It’s disgusting.”
However, theÂ Silver Linings PlaybookÂ star went on, adding: ‘I have a fourth. It’s so sick,” the actor said, showing off his forearm nipple before rolling up his pants and explaining, “And I have a fifth on my leg.”
Ellen later joked that her show had turned into a ‘show and tell’ session.Â But it was soon discovered that the nipples on the starâs body were just a ploy to segue the show.
Bradley Cooper also joked about losing Peopleâs âSexiest Man Aliveâ trophy to Channing Tatum.
âIâve been texting him,â Cooper said. âI know that heâs got a really busy career so I think thatâs why he hasnât. I want to just talk to him about it and maybe take him to lunch.â
However, Channing TatumÂ was still modest when he heard the news, reporters revealed at the time.
âMy first thought was, âYâall are messing with me,ââ he said. âI told Jenna after weâd been in the bathtub washing our dogs because theyâd gotten skunked.â
He went on, adding: âShe was like, âWhat?â Yeah, she calls me [the Sexiest Man Alive] now,â he adds, laughing.
Once she got past the initial shock, however, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, 31, revealed she couldnât agree more with their choice.
âPeople know him to be fun and sexy, but they donât know how emotionally deep and spiritually open he is,â she said of her husband. âHe is such an open-hearted person; what you see is what you get.â
As for DeGeneres, this fall Ellenâs show made headlines as the host invited YouTube star Psy to teach Britney Spears how to dance his famous âhorse-ridingâ dance.
Spears, who appeared on DeGenereâs show with fellow “X Factor” judge Simon Cowell to promote the premiere of the hit Fox talent show, was absolutely shocked when the Korean rapper, clad in his trademark tux and tennis shoes, appeared onstage.
Ellen explained that the pop-singer had previously took to Twitter writing that she wanted to properly learn the dance.
DeGeneres also expressed her desire to learn the famous herself that she forgot to properly introduce Psy, prompting the rapper to interject at one point: “Can I introduce myself, and not just dance? I’m Psy from Korea.”
Simon CowellÂ decided not to join in the tutorial, but Britney and Ellen were looking forward it. “You have to take your shoes off,” Ellen told Britney, pointing to her high-heeled nude pumps. “You’re not going to be able to dance like that.”
“No, this is fine,”Â PSY assured. “Because the mindset of this dance is dress classy and dance cheesyâŠThis is nice!”
The âGangnam Styleâ performer went on showing Brit and Ellen the steps and hand motions to his signature dance. “Bounce like you’re riding an invisible horse,” he advised.
Both women learned the moves quite quickly, happily showing offÂ theirÂ âhorse ridingâ dance to Ellen’s cheering audience.
