Who's the sexiest man alive? According to People, Bradley Cooper is the reigning king. Other candidates that come to mind include Ryan Gosling, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt. But John Goodman?

Carey Mulligan, who stars as Daisy Buchanan in the upcoming The Great Gatsby, said Goodman was her pick at a Tiffany's event for Gatsby last night. "John Goodman in Inside Llewyn Davis. That's pretty...yeah. I'll go with that." We're guessing the Entertainment Tonight correspondent thought she'd say someone more like her costar Leonardo DiCaprio.

Inside Llewyn Davis is the latest Coen brothers film starring Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Oscar Issac, and Goodman (a Coen brothers favorite). It follows the story of a singer-songwriter in 1960s New York and will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this summer.

Welp, we'll take your word for it, Carey!
