Bradley Cooper Takes Off His Shirt (and Reveals a Third Nipple)

Ellen DeGeneres was in for quite the surprise when she invited Bradley Cooper back on her show. The Silver Linings Playbook star revealed a lot more than DeGeneres had planned for when he started to take off his shirt on Tuesday's episode.

Mid interview, Cooper, 37, asked DeGeneres if she remembered asking him to go shirtless the last time he was on Ellen

"Hey, do you remember when you asked me last time if I could take my shirt off?" the Golden Globe nominee asked, to which the audience responded with gleeful applause. "I remember thinking, 'Well, I don't know if I should reveal this much about myself.' I didn't do it, because…I'll show you why. I'm gonna do it. I feel free with you guys."

But then something clearly unexpected happened. Cooper unbuttoned his maroon shirt to reveal… an extra nipple.

"You have three nipples?!" DeGeneres cried out in surprise.

"I actually have — this is so sick — I have a fourth nipple," he confessed, rolling up his sleeve to reveal another "nipple" on his forearm. 

"What is this, show-and-tell? What else do you have?" DeGeneres jokingly asked.

Then, lifting up his pant leg, Cooper said, "I have a fifth one, too."

Ellen admitted about the pre-planned gag: "You're just wasting time until it's 12 Days of Giveaways."

Cooper may have been joking, but there are heartthrobs with extra nipples, including One Direction singer and Taylor Swift beau Harry Styles and Mark Wahlberg.
