Committing to his craft! Bradley Cooper stripped all the way down for the new movie issue of W magazine, dropping trou in promotion of his latest acting endeavor. 

The Oscar-nominated actor, 41, lost his clothes for W's February 2015 print, which highlights the best film performances ahead of awards season. Appearing on one of the mag's seven covers for the month, Cooper is honored for his work in the upcoming drama American Sniper

Inside the issue, Cooper goes completely nude, holding a pair of light-colored pants to his waist to cover his man parts. He slings a matching blazer over one of his shoulders, and stands near a coordinating pair of platform shoes. 

For his February cover, the Guardians of the Galaxy actor wears the high-waisted pants with a pair of matching suspenders, though he is shirtless underneath the straps. Showing off his toned stomach, Cooper wears his brunette curls slicked back and faces away from the camera.

Now recognized as a sex symbol and leading man, Cooper has admitted in the past that he wasn't always so confident in his looks. 

"I was pretty as a child and I felt that I wasn't very manly and that plagued me for years," the now-hunky actor told British GQ in 2011. "Not good-looking, but pretty in the wrong ways; in my mind I looked like a girl."

The six remaining W covers feature Reese Witherspoon, Emma Stone, Amy Adams, Shailene Woodley, Julianne Moore, and the pairing of Keira Knightley and Benedict Cumberbatch.
