Anderson Cooper Comes Out: 'The Fact Is, I'm Gay'

Anderson Cooper has officially come out as gay.

The 45-year-old CNN host wrote a piece for his pal Andrew Sullivan‘s column for The Daily Beast.

“The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud,” Anderson wrote.

“I have always been very open and honest about this part of my life with my friends, my family, and my colleagues,” Anderson added. “In a perfect world, I don’t think it’s anyone else’s business, but I do think there is value in standing up and being counted. I’m not an activist, but I am a human being and I don’t give that up by being a journalist.”

Anderson Cooper Cusses Out Photo-Snapping Plane Passenger

Anderson Cooper waits for his car outside Chateau Marmont on Thursday (June 21) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 45-year-old CNN anchor recently appeared on Kathy Griffin‘s self-titled Bravo talk show where he recalled losing his cool on a New York to Los Angeles flight.

“I’m sitting there incredulous that he thinks I don’t see him,” Anderson said about a fellow passenger who was using his iPhone’s front-facing camera. “And he’s still taking the pictures.”

“I grab the guy on the shoulder, and I said something to the effect of, ‘B—h, what the f— are you doing?’” he told a shocked Kathy audience.

“Honestly, it was one of those things, as soon as I said it, I was like, ‘I can’t believe I said this to this guy,’” he added.

Anderson Cooper Mocks Amanda Bynes for Obama Tweet

Anderson Cooper goes for a bike ride on Friday (June 8) in New York City.

The 45-year-old AC 360 host recently placed Amanda Bynes on his show’s “RidicuList” after she asked President Obama to fire the officer who arrested her.

“If you don’t know who she is, join the club. She apparently used to be on Nickelodeon, then was in the movie Hairspray and some other movies that you’ve probably never heard of,” Anderson told his viewers.

“We’re not making light of the charges against her – it’s serious stuff,” he clarified. “But the reason why she’s on the RidicuList is because like any sensible, quasi-celebrity, she has taken to Twitter to defend herself.”
