What better person to discuss big life decisions with, than Kristin Chenoweth?
Anderson Cooper had Kristin on his new daytime show Anderson Live and the actress made a cutesie joke about him “coming out” a lot this summer, and got him to talk about why he decided to finally remove himself from the (pretty much invisible) closet.
Anderson stuttered a bit, then explained. “I’ve been torn for a long time between a desire as a reporter to just do my job and be known as a reporter — and at the same time I do think visibility is important. I do think that the tide of history only moves forward when everyone is fully visible.” He continued, “I didn’t want to send a message that there was anything I was ashamed about or unhappy about or not comfortable with. That was the main thing for me. I appreciate all the support I got and all the encouragement. I am the same person I always was, I do the job just the same way.”
And your outness won’t change a single giggle about you Anderson. We just know it.
