Anderson Cooper‘s dirty denim has been quite the hot topic ever since he confessed a few weeks ago that he only washes them about four times a year. Well, on Cooper’s eponymous talk show this morning, co-host Stacy London showed him just how dirty his unwashed jeans are.
While Cooper jokes about all the media attention on his dirty denim and brushes the whole thing off, London makes a big deal about the situation. She even came clean (ha!) about stealing Cooper’s beloved A.P.C. pair and getting it tested. While the jeans didn’t look gross at all, it turns out that they were 129 times dirtier than new ones and were considered a biohazard. How’s that for integrity?
But in Cooper’s defense, A.P.C. jeans don’t need all that much washing anyway. There’s a whole science behind washing denim, and apparently, it’s totally cool to wear them for several months without cleaning. That said, hanging out in unwashed denim more than a few times grosses us out — even if the wearer is Anderson Cooper.
And in the spirit of the holiday season, London gifts — well, you’ll see. Just watch both clips below:
