Last week, ANDERSON COOPER broke out in a "giggle fit" on his CNN show while talking about GERARD DEPARDIEU peeing on the floor of an airplane. (--Here's that video again. Anderson begins to unravel at the 2:25 mark.)
--If you've been wondering what the heck is up with that laugh, Anderson has an explanation for you.
--He tells "Entertainment Weekly", quote, "I've always giggled like a 13-year-old girl at a Justin Bieber meet-and-greet. There's nothing I can do about it, but I've never not been able to stop.
--"I'm a little stunned by how many people have seen that video. I went to bed telling myself, 'I doubt anyone will notice the giggle fit.' I woke up and in the elevator the first thing my building super said to me was, 'What's wrong with your laugh?'
--"It could be worse: I could have a viral video in which I throw up on a guest or drunkenly eat a hamburger on a bathroom floor. Not that I've ever done either of those things. Not yet at least."
(--There are several versions of the clip on YouTube, which total over a million views. But the real loser in this is Gerard Depardieu, who must be THRILLED that Anderson's "giggle fit" brought even more attention to his peeing incident.)
