Anderson Cooper revealed he walked out of a screening of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” after just 45 minutes, as he discussed the film on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” Tuesday.
The 50-year-old, who presented CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live” with Andy Cohen, 49, Sunday, made the shock confession as he chatted with the host on the Global show. However, Cooper insisted he didn’t abandon the cinema because he wasn’t a fan of the film.
Cooper revealed, “I actually saw it [Star Wars] last night, I walked out. I know, I’m sorry. I have a lot going on, I had a lot of work to do and a lot on my mind.”
“It wasn’t a protest, I’m going to see it again. I had too much in my head. About 45 minutes in I said, ‘I’m not giving this the attention it deserves,’” he added.
Cooper’s appearance on the talk show comes after he and Andy Cohen were slammed for their New Year’s Eve coverage on CNN.
Despite being good friends in real life, some viewers pointed out that there was little on-screen chemistry between the pair. Read more viewer reaction here.
