The world knows Anderson Cooper as a sexy silver fox but that doesn’t mean he approves!
The 49-year-old CNN anchor was behind the hosting table with his famous BFF Kelly Ripa on Live with Kelly this morning, where he revealed the truth about what he thinks of his sexy silver locks — they’re “a little too much.”
“I don’t really like my gray hair. I wish I still had brown hair. It’s not my thing,” said Cooper. “If I could, I would probably color my hair, but I couldn’t imagine sitting in a salon with tin foil in my hair reading old issues of Rosie for hours. At this point it’s too late — the cow has left the barn.”
Ripa interjected, yelling “but you’re the silver fox! Silver is your signature color — you were born to be silver.”
She went on to show several pictures of a young Anderson with dark hair:
Comparing himself to a White Walker from Game of Thrones “with the paleness,” Cooper joked, “As soon as the White Walkers came on Game of Thrones, I’m like, ’Hmmm, I’m related to them.'”
He added: “Andy Cohen makes fun of me, and says it’s like, Katniss Everdeen’s ‘hair on fire.’ I don’t blend in a crowd very well. People used to say to me I’m prematurely gray, but that doesn’t happen anymore. I’ve caught up with myself.”
