Some odd years ago, Louis C.K. went on a radio show and basically said that the audience members who ask questions to guests on Inside The Actors Studio will never, ever be as famous as the people on stage. Specifically, C.K. named Sean Penn as a guest example.

Well, somebody dug up a clip of Sean Penn’s appearance on the show in 1999 and discovered that one of the young men who asked him a question was one Bradley Cooper, who at that time was a 24-year old actor struggling to make his way in the industry.

Not only does that clip prove Louis C.K. wrong in mind-numbing fashion, but the clip that follows it (taken from ‘American Hustle’) ties the whole thing together and will pretty much melt your brain.
