Bradley Cooper — Hollywood celebrity, heartthrob and now Desert Magazine cover model.

I got a sneak peek tonight at the upcoming issue of our magazine, and I couldn’t keep it to myself.

This stunning photo was taken during an exclusive photo shoot with Desert Magazine backstage at the Palm Springs International Film Festival awards gala on Jan. 5, 2013.

As magazine goddess Carla Howard wrote on the cover of the issue: “You’re welcome.”

While freelance photographer Taili Song Roth set up, Cooper was hanging in our photo gallery with his “Silver Linings Playbook” director David O. Russell as well as Ben Affleck.

Russell pointed out his own Desert Magazine photo shoot, which was taken in 2010 with Mark Wahlberg and was on display with several others.

The very-playful Russell even grabbed a self-portrait with actor Jeremy Renner’s portrait, also on display. (Russell, Renner and Cooper are working together on untitled project.)

Desert Magazine will hit homes Sunday for The Desert Sun and subscribers.

Can’t wait? See our photo gallery of Bradley Cooper at the film fest.
