Anderson Cooper Gets Dirty: PHOTO


Anderson Cooper tweeted a photo of himself last night shirtless and covered in mud, asking his followers:

"I'm off for a few days. From this photo can you guess where in the world I am? Exact location?"

Any guesses?

UPDATE from Anderson: "great guesses. some got it right! I was at volcan el totumo. Mud volcano near Cartagena, Colombia...You go to the top of the volcano and go into the warm mud. Its really weird, but fun. Colombia is a beautiful country."

  7. I don't think anybody would say AC was in any kind of a closet.

  8. A photo doesn't qualify as shirtless if I can't see your chest.

  9. I'd guess he's in Binh Chau, Vietnam.

  12. This closet case is repulsive. It's nice to see him covered in sh*t.

  17. Immuria?

    But "in the closet" is hilarious!

    Talk about a beard!

  18. Please, he's not in the closet. He doesn't publicly discuss the fact that he's gay, but he also doesn't hide it. He has openly dated several men.

    Would it be nice if he talked about it? Sure. But he's not in the closet.

  19. I'm sorry, I just can't help it. I'd hit that like Ike hit Tina.

  20. It's obvious he's in Central Park.

  21. ooh!! a 3-way with Bear Grylls and Jake Gyllenhaal!

  22. Today I learned that literally the whole world knowing you're gay means you're in the closet.

    Posted by: ohplease | Jul 19, 2011 11:16:22 AM

  23. Dane: He is indeed in the closet.

    He won't answer the question. He dodges. He wants to be out to Gawker but doesn't want to say 'Yep I'm Gay' to People magazine. His excuse is that he wants to cover the news not be the news...So why is he posting shirtless pics of himless covered in mud, preening on the ocver of Vanity Fair, writing revealing memoirs that don't reveal his sexuality, and filling in for Regis on Live!...???

    Doesn't make sense. He's a a coward and I don't think he is hot either.

  24. @Ranfe:

    So your definition of "in the closet" is "everyone knows your gay, many people in the city you live in know your boyfriend, but you won't talk about it to the news."


    He'd be in the closet if he said "I'm straight," and he hid his relationships. He does neither. Like a great many people in New York, I've seen him out multiple times with his boyfriend, who (like many people in New York) I know.

    Just because he isn't as outspoken about his sexuality as I (and clearly you) wish he were doesn't make him closeted.
