The Bravo host said the throwback photo was from a vacation the two took together in the past.
Cohen also said Anderson was "pissed" at him for sharing the picture."
On Tuesday, Cohen shared two throwback photos of Cooper while the two vacationed together in a tropical place. In the first pic, Cooper is posing in front of a lush greenery, while in the second, he's flexing his toned bod on a boat.
If it were a normal year, Iâ€™d be on vacation with my pal...threatening to post shirtless pics of him. Well, itâ€™s 2020 and Iâ€™m sitting on my deck so I figured Iâ€™d just post without asking and piss him off! #SilverFox

Cohen opened up in the caption about why he decided to share this kind of content: "If it were a normal year, I'd be on vacation with my pal...threatening to post shirtless pics of him. Well, it's 2020 and I'm sitting on my deck so I figured I'd just post without asking and piss him off! #SilverFox"
Fans went wild over the post, offering all kinds of questions and comments to Cohen about the pictures. "This is community service, we thank you for being a good friend and sharing this in our time of need. ðŸ”¥ðŸ˜™," one fan wrote, while another person commented, "Silver fox, indeed."

Cohen offered an update about Cooper's reaction to the post in his Instagram Story. "Anderson is so pissed at me guys," Cohen said. "But listen, I'm just sitting here bored under a blanket. Ben is sleeping, and I'm bored. So what else am I supposed to do?"
"Maybe I'll post more shirtless pictures of Anderson!" he added. Is that a promise?!
Obviously, the post is all in good fun, and Cooper and Cohen have a pretty close relationship. They actually met in the '90s when they were set up on a blind date...but the date never happened.
"Andy and I were first set up on a blind date, which never happened because we had a phone call and after two minutes I said, 'I'm not dating this guy,'" Cooper recalled on Watch What Happens Live in December 2016. "He broke my cardinal ruleâ€¦he mentioned my mom within the first four sentences of meeting me."
Well, thankfully, the two remained good friends. They both welcomed their sons Benjamin and Wyatt within months of one another, and in an Instagram Story, Cohen promised their sons would be best friends--just like their fathers.
On Watch What Happens Live, Ben and Wyatt met for the first time in June. "That's going to be your good buddy," Andy told Ben while showing him Wyatt. "And we're going to travel together. And if you like him half as much as I like his daddy, you're going to be great friends."
Have you ever seen a better duo?! The answer is, definitely not. Here's to hoping for more shirtless pics of Cooper in the near future!
