Anderson Cooper stopped by Late Night Monday to chat with Seth Meyers, and he recounted the story of how he met Meyers, which included an innocent misunderstanding.

“It was pretty much the gayest gym on the planet,” Cooper said of the circumstances surrounding the pair’s introduction. “And I assumed you were gay, because there weren’t a lot of other reasons to be there.”

“This was before you officially came out,” Meyers responded. “So I assumed it was straight because you were there.”

Cooper announced he was gay in an open letter to his longtime friend Andrew Sullivan in July 2012.
