If you ask Anderson Cooper, being acelebrity isn't all about glitz and glam. In fact, the famous newsmanis so un-fancy that he wears the same jeans every day and even admitsthat he doesn't wash them very often.
While chatting with What Not to Wear co-host and fashion guru Stacy London on his show Anderson Live Thursday, Cooper, who is recovering from a temporary blindness, revealed his preference for a simple style of dress.
"Inmy real life, I wear a T-shirt, gray or white, and the same pair ofjeans," he told London. "Literally, the same pair of jeans every day."
And, what's more, they don't regularly see the inside of a washing machine.
"Theyhave these jeans you don't have to wash now -- or so they say. It'strue!" he claimed. "I went to this store APC which has really nicestuff. And you buy these things and the person said to me, 'Don't washthem for a long time.' They mean like six months, I think."
WhenLondon suggested he increase the frequency of his laundry routine andadvised that he nix the soap and use cold water to get them clean,Cooper revealed the strange way in which he does wash his dungarees.
"Thetimes I've done it, I've worn them and walked into my shower with themand put some soap on them and then air dried them. Isn't that how youare supposed to do it?"
Um, not so much, Coop.
