WATCH: Bradley Cooper Confesses to Michelle Obama About Going Commando at the White House

Michelle Obama got quite the treat when she recently co-hosted Ellen with Ellen DeGeneres. Sitting in with the comedienne, the First Lady was surprised with a special appearance from Bradley Cooper, who was on hand to help the ladies take a photo. (Remember: Cooper was the man behind — or in front? — of the camera when DeGeneres broke Twitter with her famous Oscar selfie in 2014.)

During his surprise cameo, Cooper also admitted to showing up at the White House once without any underwear on.

“I had just done American Sniper and the tuxedo—I only had one tuxedo—didn’t fit. I was so nervous it would rip, so I decided last minute to 86 the underwear,” he confessed, referring to his visit to the presidential home.

“Because if it should rip, it’s better to not have underwear,” DeGeneres quipped.

“For us!” Obama added. “It’s good for us, right ladies?”
