Pure Squee

Okay, usually I'm all business but today I had to just let loose and do a great big squee post! I'm sorry, there are just too many beautiful photos from last night that I've found. How could I launch into a discussion about politics. I will say that I LOVED Reza Aslan last night! I just think he has great insight to Middle East politics. I appreciate his views and wish Anderson Cooper would have him on the show more often!

Okay, I know you are patiently awaiting the awesome photos but before I give you the Gorgeous, I'd like to kill you with cuteness first! It seems that New York Magazine sent a reporter to last night's Elton John benefit with one purpose: To get the scoop on Anderson's biceps, FROM Anderson himself!

Iraq Trips Hamper Anderson Cooper's Gym Schedule

Last night we sent a reporter to Elton John's AIDS Foundation benefit with a mission: Find Anderson Cooper and ask him about his
bodacious new biceps. Bennett Marcus, our intrepid interviewer, took on the task and confronted Cooper about his ginormous guns. Below is what transpired:

Your biceps are really big lately. How are you working out?

“Wow. What is my workout routine — I’ve never been asked that question! Um, I don’t know [Ed. note: At this point, Cooper appeared to be dying of flustration.], I’ve just been … working with a trainer and uh, I don’t know, lifting a little weight, and running a little. I don’t know.

Is that new? The trainer and the rest?

Uh, you know, I just turned 40, so yes, I’m trying to be a little bit healthier now and trying to eat a little bit more sensibly. And also, with traveling so much, you know, it’s tough when you’re in Iraq to do anything, so I try to work out when I’m here. [Ed. note: Best. Quote. Ever.] This is really … I sound ridiculous.

They gave me this question, I’m not kidding.

Wow, well, I didn’t know that New York Magazine would notice my biceps. My trainer will be thrilled. I’m going to pass this along to him. His name is TJ. He’ll be very excited.

Of course we noticed, Anderson. It's like you took Angelina Jolie's breasts and hung them from your shoulders! (Except somehow you made them whiter.) Don't tell us you didn't want us to look. Now can we talk about this TJ guy? You don't happen to have his phone number, do you?


And when asked about Elton John's Tantrums:

Did you ever see Elton John throw a tantrum or anything dramatic?

“I’ve seen a documentary where he threw a tantrum, but I’m waiting. I’m hoping maybe tonight, if I really screw it up or something.”

OMG, I'm sorry but I can just picture Anderson answering these questions! Can't you?

Pictures, Pictures, Pictures
Well, here they are without further adieu. (I'm just going to credit WireImage, Getty Image, ACI Online, Film Magic, and AP Photos) Enjoy!

Alrighty then, I'll just let y'all enjoy the Gorgeousness and whisper "Good Night!" ~Sheryn

I think just about everyone has noticed Anderson has been working out and his biceps do look very nice! I bet he was very taken back at someone coming up to him and asking him these questions and I'm guessing, but my guess is he turned beet red. Anderson seems very humble. I'm glad he does work-out and is eating better and taking care of himself and not because he turned 40. 40 is not old.

Anderson looks so handsome in those pictures! I am verklempt!!!!!
Thanks for posting those, Sheryn!

Pati Mc said...

Wow Sheryn!

Just what I needed today, bless your heart!

Yes, I can just see Anderson answering those questions myself. LOL, how funny would his expressions have been? I can see him now, uncomfortably rocking from side to side on those big feet - looking like he wants to die of embarrassment. Poor Anderson! I bet he was blushing horribly too. Aw!

Seriously Anderson, like you thought we were not gonna notice those total BAZOOKA'S that you are packing? Come on, dude! LOL =)

Hi there AC fans!

I was also at the EJAF benefit dinner last night and had a wonderful time. Anderson did a great job as host and, as the pictures show, looked fantastic as always. I took some pictures, but unfortunately was too far back for them to come out very well, so it was nice to see these. I did notice that he left a bit early, so I wasn't surprised to see him on the show. I wish I'd seen that interview, though! :) I didn't see him on the red carpet, I was already back at the cocktail party by the time he got there. Anyway thanks for the pics! :)

Thanks for the pics. It is interested how in some pics his skin looks nice and rosy but others he looks pale as a newt and needing some powder.
