Anderson Cooper Has Bulging Biceps

Anderson Cooper Has Bulging Biceps

CNN’s Anderon Cooper was asked about his ginormous guns, aka bulging biceps, by NY Magazine at the Elton John’s AIDS Foundation on Tuesday. Very professional of them!

Your biceps are really big lately. How are you working out? “Wow. What is my workout routine — I’ve never been asked that question! Um, I don’t know [Ed. note: At this point, Cooper appeared to be dying of flustration.], I’ve just been … working with a trainer and uh, I don’t know, lifting a little weight, and running a little. I don’t know.

Is that new? The trainer and the rest? Uh, you know, I just turned 40, so yes, I’m trying to be a little bit healthier now and trying to eat a little bit more sensibly. And also, with traveling so much, you know, it’s tough when you’re in Iraq to do anything, so I try to work out when I’m here. [Ed. note: Best. Quote. Ever.] This is really … I sound ridiculous.

They gave me this question, I’m not kidding. [Ed. note: Sure, sure, blame the gay boss.] Wow, well, I didn’t know that New York Magazine would notice my biceps. My trainer will be thrilled. I’m going to pass this along to him. His name is TJ. He’ll be very excited.

Thank TJ, you guys!

    I feel embarrassed for him. Next thing you know, they’ll be asking “Sooo…what’s with the grey hair?”

    He is the hottest journalist on TV right now. I like watching him report the news on CNN because he is interesting and not afraid to ask the tough questions. Doesn’t hurt that he is pretty cute. . .and I don’t care that he is gay, he is still cute! (he has admitted to being gay)

    magnus MFA Says:

    Where does it say he’s gay?

    The editor of NY Magazine was the “gay boss”.

    Hence the stupid questions about his weaselly little arms.

    Read it again ladies.

    You sound very sophisticated. How grand of you not to care that he’s he’s gay, though you’re wrong that he “admitted” it. He’s always dodged the question but everyone in NYC knows he’s into guys. Like you imply, it’s amazing he can be gay and cute at the same time. That never happens!

    Bruce! Why so hard on Natalie? She said nothing untoward. As a woman, I “hear her”. We often develop a “crush” on men, only to later find they are gay. As she said, this does not negate the fact that she enjoys the view. And why should it? :) And yes, he has come out!

    Bruce, I don’t get it. Natalie didn’t say anything rude, so what was up with the abrasive comment?… And I like Anderson Cooper too. I have to admit I’ve always had a crush on him but didn’t know that he was gay until recently. I still like the guy but I just didn’t know that he was gay. He never publicly admitted it and the only time I heard people talking about his sexuality is on blogs, which is where I found out that he was in fact gay. Big deal…

    He is very cute and I love AC 360. I can’t find him hot anymore after hearing him giggle on Jon Stewart. That just sucked all the hotness out.

    He is so hot – I can’t stand it. Hot. Hot. Hot. Yes, he is Gay but so what? Hot, hot, hot! I want him.

    Egoistic Joker Says:

    I used to have this humongous crush on him and still do but now it is just a big crush. People are saying he is gay, which is ok
    for him but not for me. He would not be interested in a woman if he is gay,but I still think he is hot and sexy and so appealing.

    Debbie Says:

    I would love to believe Janet (“Anderson is hot, sexy and STRAIGHT”), but alas, I fear that he is, in reality, gay. He’s definitely got the yummy factor going on. I watch him every night on AC 360, and while he is definitely a talented journalist, I must admit that he makes me drool – and not because he’s a talented journalist.

    For the record, any heterosexual woman who finds a man sexy, attractive, (if she’s not already attached) wants to know #1-is he single (that includes girlfriend); #2-if so, is he gay. If the latter is true, it’s not unusal that she may be somewhat disappointed.

    You feel me Bruce?

    @all of you “gay” cooper-commentators: you are only morally allowed to out a gay person if s/he has been doing harm to LGBT’s. As far as I know he hasn’t come out, so let him stay in his glass closet.

    For all those ladies that are disappointed at the idea of lusting after a gay guy, I say “He wasn’t going to do you anyway”

    For all the gay guys who excitedly whisper about Cooper I say, “you are evil queens and should have a house drop on you. He wasn’t going to do you either.”

    btw I’m gay from SF if the gay comment sounds harsh maybe it’s ’cause i know my brothers all too well.
