Anderson Cooper is not impressed with his placement in People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive issue.

If you've already peeped the highly coveted cover, then you know Channing Tatum took home the sexiest man alive title, but the 45-year-old news personality also received an honorable mention—for his hair.

Cooper sat down with Andy Cohen on Anderson Live to discuss the Magic Mike star's titillating title (the CNN journalist even admits he just saw the stripper flick on demand), and both men agree Tatum is well deserving of the honor. 

But the Bravo host couldn't help but surprise Anderson with the news that his pal had also landed inside the issue in a special "50 Shades of Grey" section.

"The thing I love is in People magazine's—have you seen this? '50 Shades of Grey,' look: the Silver Fox. It's a scale of gray-haired people, basically, and you are next to Ted Danson," Cohen reveals as the audience erupts in applause.

"Oh wait a minute, no, no, no. This is not good," Anderson admits as he gazes wide-eyed at the page. "First of all, this is a scale of gray-haired people and I am at the very bottom of the grayest of gray." 

Beyoncé also visited Anderson Live—what did she say about Blue Ivy?

He continues sounding off on his 50 shades placement, as Andy reveals the Anderson crew even had the issue framed:

"I don't want to be at the grayest of gray. On my row, I am next to Ted Danson, John Slattery, Jorge Ramos, Ron Perlman, Bill Clinton, Morgan Freeman, Harrison Ford—everybody is really old!"

"Wow, the Silver Fox is pissed. He's pissed," Cohen says with a smirk as the good-looking journalist takes a moment to defend his signature style.  

"In my mind I still have salt-and-pepper hair, and there is no pepper left, it's all just salt," Cooper admits with defeat.

Don't worry, A.C.! We think you're still one sexy silver fox even without a dash of pepper in your 'do.
