Anderson Cooper Gets Glasses (VIDEO)

For the first time in his life, Anderson Cooper has gotten glasses.

The CNN anchor made the announcement while hosting Friday's "Live! with Regis and Kelly."

Cooper, who is covering the gulf oil spill and pre-taped Friday's show, showed off two pairs of potential glasses — but neither Kelly nor the audience was into them.

"They're not too big, they're just wrong," Kelly said of one pair.
