Quotes by Anderson Cooper:
-Going gray is like ejaculating. You know it can happen prematurely, but when it actually does, it's a total shock. ~Details Magazine 2003
-Never trust a guy with pretty nails. My mom told me that, and while most of her advice isn't exactly practical-I'm still trying to figure out what "Say yes to Purple" means-she's right about the nail thing. ~Details Magazine 2003
-(When asked about being called a sex symbol) It's certainly nice, It's certainly flattering but I don't get it. I think I'm sort of pale and sickly looking! (YEAH, RIGHT ANDERSON!)
-These days I try not to bite my nails in front of others. I'm not ashamed, but it's like videotaping youself having sex: not something other people should really have to watch.
~Details Magazine 2003
-I can begin to understand how anchor monsters are made. If you're not careful, you can become used to being treated as though you're special and begin to expect it.
-I suppose if you've never bitten your nails, there isn't any way to explain the habit. It's not enjoyable, really, but there is a certain satisfaction-pride in a job well done.
~Details Magazine 2003
-What I don't understand is that celebs seem to be getting hospitalized for exhaustion lately! Why don't normal people get exhaustion and get to be hospitalized!
-I used to think there was nothing worse than imagining your own parents having sex. I was wrong. You know what's worse? Learning your parents sex life is more interesting than your own. ~Details Magazine 2005
-But it's not anyone else, it's my mom, and reading her description of her current boyfriend as the "Nijinsky of cunnilingus" was kind of shocking. ~Details Magazine 2005
