In a Monday (March 14) appearance on Howard Stern’s Siriux XM show, Cooper opened up about his 2006 wedding to Esposito and the couple’s speedy divorce in early 2007.
“It just wasn’t right,” said Cooper. “It’s interesting… things happen!”
But why was the actor, currently dating Renee Zellweger (herself the vet of a short-lived marriage to Kenny Chesney), wearing a wedding band on his right hand? Cooper explained that the ring belonged to his dad, who passed away in January.
Cooper also admitted to Stern that he didn’t lose his virginity until he was 17 and talked about his slow-off-the-mark arrival in Hollywood at 26.
“I couldn’t get into the SkyBar at the Mondrian Hotel in L.A. when I first moved there,” he told Stern. “No one was looking at [me and my friend]. [I’m] sitting back at this one-bedroom thing I’m renting, depressed as hell. My sister came to visit for a week, she wanted to kill herself. L.A. can be horrible!”
