19 Stars Who Love 'Star Wars' As Much as You Do

The CNN anchor couldn't even sit through an hour of the latest "Star Wars" movie.

Anderson Cooper couldn't stand more than 45 minutes of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

"I actually saw it last night," he told Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night. "I walked out. I know, I know. I'm sorry."

Now, that's not to say he didn't like it.

After a gasp from the audience, the CNN anchor explained that he was just too distracted to fully comprehend the "Star Wars" sequel that is dividing fans, despite critical acclaim.

"I had a lot going on. I have a lot of work to do," Cooper said. "It wasn't a protest. I'm going to go see it again. I just had too much in my head."

Colbert then chimed in with a giggle saying, "You paid money, walked in, and it occurred to you in the middle of the movie, 'I don't have time for this?'"

"Yeah, about 45 minutes in. I was like, 'I'm not giving this the attention it deserves,'" Cooper said.

Colbert compared it to having sex and then realizing you're just not that into it and should try again later.
