Full Platter:

Anderson Cooper is kicking things off this fall with a bang.

On the season premiere of Anderson Cooper’s daytime show, "Anderson Live," guest co-host Kristin Chenoweth asked what prompted Cooper to publically come out.  E! reported his response:

"I came out in high school," explained Cooper.  "I told my friends, I told my family. I've always been out to my coworkers and stuff. It's just not something I talked about publicly, because as a reporter, I didn't think it was appropriate. It didn't seem like part of my job."

Cooper publically came out this summer in an email to The Daily Beast columnist Andrew Sullivan; Sullivan had asked Cooper to comment on the idea of gay public figures who come out in a “restrained and matter-of-fact way.”

"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,” Cooper told Sullivan.

Society didn’t seem to mind Cooper’s coming out and it certainly hasn’t had any negative impact on his ratings or reporting.  But Chenoweth then asked Cooper the big question: why now?

"It just got to the point where, I've been torn for a long time between the desire as a reporter to just do my job and be known as a reporter,” Cooper told Chenoweth.  I didn't want to send a message that it was anything I was ashamed about or unhappy about or not comfortable with.  And that was the main thing for me. I mean, I appreciate all the support I got and all the encouragement."
