Speaking of Anderson Cooper, the Silver Fox let his hair down during an appearance on last night’s Kathy, recounting an amusing anecdote about an intrusive passenger aboard his flight from New York to Los Angeles earlier that day.
Cooper told host Kathy Griffin that he was attempting to doze off when he noticed that the man seated in front of him was trying to snap a photo of him using his iPhone’s front-facing camera. “Normally I would just be like, ‘We’re not going to win this one,’ but I’ve lately become emboldened,” Cooper said.
Shored up by presence of eccentric figure skater Johnny Weir in the seat next to him, Cooper claims he grabbed the guy by the shoulders, and “said something to the effect of, ‘Bitch, what … are you doing?’”
Immediately after the words left his mouth, Cooper says he went from sass to remorse in no-seconds flat. “It was one of those things, as soon as I said, I was like ‘I can’t believe I said this to this guy,” he said.
Naturally, no words can do this exchange justice, so watch Cooper utter the soon-to-be-immortal words below.
