Anderson Cooper Can’t Even Drop F-Bombs Without Sounding Adorable

Anderson Cooper took to the podium at Sean Penn‘s second annual Help Haiti Home benefit on Jan. 12, and while he was there, he let the F-bombs fly. In context, of course.

After Penn gave a speech littered with swears, Cooper had his turn. Maybe his friend and New Year’s Eve co-host Kathy Griffin really is rubbing off on him.

“I didn’t know we were allowed to say f—,” Cooper joked. “I would have said f— so much more.”

Cooper recalled that upon first meeting Penn in Haiti, he didn’t quite know how to treat the actor, quipping, “I worried if I pointed a camera at him, he’d beat me up.”

The CNN host also promised that (time permitting) he would serenade Penn with Bette Midler’s ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ — a promise which sadly never came to fruition. Way to break our hearts with your lies, Anderson Cooper.

Later on in the evening, the Academy Award-snubbed Leonardo DiCaprio donated $200,000 to spend the day with former president and surprise Golden Globe presenter Bill Clinton. Because let’s be honest — if you had that kind of jack, you’d spend it on a day with Bill, too.

Meanwhile, Reese Witherspoon scraped up with $125,000 for a trip to Italy to meet fashion designer Giorgio Armani, and David Spade also plunked down 125 large on Bruce Springsteen and Sir Paul McCartney concert packages.

To reiterate: You’re at work while David freakin’ Spade is writing six-figure checks for funzies. Happy Monday!
