CNN’s journalist Anderson Cooper comes out of the closet on Monday that he is gay, via an email to The Daily Beast columnist Andrew Sullivan.
Anderson (45-year-old) tells he ‘couldn’t be any more … proud’ of his sexuality and we’re proud of him for finally speaking out – Anderson says in a statement: The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud.
The fellow celebrities and journalists alike reached out to him to offer congratulation and supporting him. Neil Patrick Harris and Ellen DeGeneres tweeted words of support to the CNN anchor.
According to Andrew Sullivan, who tells himself as a Cooper pal, he had asked the CNN newsman about his response to the recent EW cover story about famous celebrities who were gay. The anchor has never wanted to make a big topic out of his sexuality, which is why it’s so apt that his first official comments come out in a story about public figures casually coming out.
It should also be noted that Anderson’s comments about being gay seem as part of a much bigger statement to the website. Well, Anderson‘s sexuality has been a hot topic of talks for years, and now in an interview with The Daily Beast, the CNN’s newsman is setting the record straight so to speak.
While Anderson Cooper didn’t address whether or not he was dating anyone, rumors have been going around since 2008 about his relationship with Boyfriend-Benjamin Maisani.
