People Say Anderson Cooper Was Born To Be A Silver Fox, But He Says He Misses His Brown Hair

We are so used to seeing CNN host Anderson Cooper with a full head of gray hair that it’s hard to imagine his hair looked different at some point. And, we have to admit, silver looks good on him, with his blue eyes and pale skin!
However, Anderson himself said he's felt insecure about going gray.
Anderson on turning into a silver fox
The host saw first gray hairs on his head when he was in his twenties, he wrote on CNN website. At first, Anderson was in denial about the change of his hair color.
Anderson’s hair color changed from salt-and-pepper to full silver quite fast, without him even having time to come to terms with it. Still, he chose not to dye his hair as he didn’t want to look desperate.
Although Anderson often hears how silver looks good on him and doesn’t even make him look old, he misses his brown hair. He told Kelly Ripa during an appearance at Live! With Kelly:
I don’t really like my gray hair. I wish I still had brown hair. It’s not my thing.
Nevertheless, he still doesn’t like the thought of dyeing his hair:
If I could, I would probably color my hair, but I couldn’t imagine sitting in a salon with tin foil in my hair reading old issues of Rosie for hours. At this point it’s too late — the cow has left the barn.
Anderson added that he thinks silver makes him look old:
Every time I look in the mirror, I still, in my mind, think I have brown hair and then I’m like, ‘Who is that old guy?’
What do his viewers think about his hair?
Anderson may not like his silver fox image, but his viewers certainly do! Here are a few comments from Twitter users about the host’s hair:
I turned on CNN and my first thought was "I wonder if Anderson Cooper was ever NOT a silver fox." my brain decided he was born w/ gray hair.— Melissa 🌱 (@MelissWritesNow) February 21, 2017

What do you think? Do you like Anderson with silver hair? Or would it be better if he went back to brown?
