Anderson Cooper Says He’s ‘Always Giggled Like a 13-Year-Old Girl’

By: / August 23, 2011

Anderson Cooper is finally speaking out about his on-air laugh attack from last week, in which the CNN anchor was reduced to a giggle fit while reporting on Gérard Depardieu’s public urination on a plane.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the silver fox admitted, “I don’t know what happened with the giggling. I mean, I’ve always giggled like a 13 year-old girl at a Justin Bieber meet and greet. There’s nothing I can do about it but I’ve never not been able to stop.”

“It could be worse,” he added. “I could have a viral video in which I throw up on a guest or drunkenly eat a hamburger on a bathroom floor. Not that I’ve ever done either of those things. Not yet at least.”

The incident went down Wednesday night during Anderson Cooper 360’s pun-filled “Ridiculist” segment. Relive the hilarious moment below.
