Everything sounds better in French – especially when it’s Bradley Cooper talking.

Aside from being easy on the eyes, PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive is fluent in French. We put the actor’s language skills to the test and he demonstrated how to ask for directions, order breakfast and invite someone out for dinner.
