Anderson Cooper says he quit child modeling at 13 years old after a photographer propositioned him.

The newsman made the revelation on Howard Stern’s radio show.

“I got propositioned by a photographer,” Cooper told the host, who asked why he decided to leave the fashion business so quickly.

The CNN anchor explained, “He somehow got my number, called me up, and offered me money. It so freaked me out… I never told anybody, I just stopped.”
