Anderson Cooper isn't about to make a dancing fool of himself with Ellen DeGeneres, like those other TV news anchors, whom he helpfully names. Plus, public displays of ardor just aren't his thing.

The CNN anchor and Vanderbilt family golden child went on DeGeneres' show today. Having seen Chris Matthews and Wolf Blitzer play along with the daytime talk show host's "dance with me" routine, he knew better: "No one really wants to see a middle-aged guy with silver hair, wriggling.

"I was raised to supress all my emotions — I can't be publicly expressing things."


You don't say!
