Anderson Cooper: I Thought Seth Meyers Was Gay!

He’s the best-known gay news man around, and Anderson Cooper made some serious assumptions about “Late Night” host Seth Meyers during their first encounter.

The “Anderson Cooper 360” star told the former “SNL” head writer that when he saw him at “the gayest gym on the planet,” he was sure he was homosexual.

Cooper noted, “And I assumed you were gay, because there weren't a lot of other reasons to be there."

Seth fired back, "This was before you officially came out. So I assumed it was straight because you were there. I felt like there was the gay-friendly, and then there was gay-curious, and then the bottom level was just full-gay. Like to get to the bottom level you had to go like behind the candelabra.”

And when Anderson urged Meyers to become the first openly gay late night host, Seth replied, "Give it a year. I have to talk to my wife.”
