Bradley Cooper is one of eight cover stars for the new W magazine, which highlights the “Best Performances” of the year. The outlet assembled “the actors who killed it this year” for “surreal” shoots with photographer Tim Walker. Cooper appears naked (albeit holding carefully positioned clothes) in one of his other images. See that and all the other cover photos below!

In addition to Cooper, Shailene Woodley, Julianne Moore, Amy Adams, Reese Witherspoon, Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley and Emma Stone grace the magazine’s cover. The stars opened up to the outlet about their inspirations and challenges.

“My favorite love story is Dirty Dancing,” says Woodley. “I was young when I saw it, and I wanted to be Baby! I loved that she and Patrick Swayze came from different worlds, and, yet, they wanted similar things out of life. And, of course, I loved the dancing. It was sexier than most sex scenes.”

Stone has a much different choice: “My favorite love story is Planes, Trains and Automobiles. The relationship between John Candy and Steve Martin is so touching. I must like male love stories because my cinematic crush of the moment is the cast of Foxcatcher. Channing Tatum just knifed me in the gut and ran. He slayed me — I don’t even know what to do with myself.”

Witherspoon tells the outlet, “The sex scenes in Wild were the most explicit I’ve ever done. I dreaded those days of shooting, but they were important. Otherwise, it’s just a hiking movie — and that’s not interesting.” Indeed. Check out the cover images before, and let us know which you like best!
