NOOO! Anderson Cooper Was Sexually Harassed As A Child Model! Get All The Disturbing Deets HERE!

Anderson Cooper reveals the reason why he stopped modeling as a child and the reason is horrifying!

Wow!!

For those who didn’t know, Anderson Cooper used to be a child model, working for big lines like Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein.

Except he quit the biz at the age of thirteen and just recently revealed the one terrible experience behind that decision!

The CNN anchor shared with Howard Stern on his radio show:

"I got propositioned by a photographer…a male. He somehow got my number and called me up and offered me money, and so it freaked me out. I never told anybody. I just stopped. I was like, 'Forget it.'"

WHAT. That is so disturbing!

Sadly, it’s not an unheard of experience in the modeling world, but to lighten the mood, when asked how much money the photographer mentioned, Anderson told Howard:

"$2,500, which I thought was a little low."

Still so horrifying! Ugh. And Anderson's story just sheds light on what sometimes happens behind the scenes of what looks like such a glamorous job.

Thoughts???

    It's so well known and still people get silenced when they try to raise awareness - there should be much more protection!

    Everybody thinks they were so hot as a kid. Every male kid thinks their female teacher is a pedo with the hots for them. 99.9 percent of them are delusional or wishfully thinking. Even I thought my 23yro advanced math tutor was a pedophile who wanted to have sex with me since my school counselor advised my dad to never leave her alone with me. I was thinking "my tutor must have the hots for me and my counselor knows it. She's afraid we'll get it on". In retrospect, its possible it was my tutor's safety my councilor was worried about (in which case, i'm offended). Whatever the case, there was never any boomschikawowow between us. I had deluded myself. I learned that just because a tutor wears makeup doesnt mean she's trying to get sex out of you. This guy thinks he was good looking enough for sex AND $2,500. LOL. Even I wasnt so crazy as to think my tutor would spend my parents payment on sex with me. I think he was being offered a job and he got paranoid and misread the photographer. (but I wasnt there! I cant say for sure).
