Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper went without underwear during his visit to the White House last week.

“The Hangover” star was among the guests at a state dinner in Washington, D.C. last Tuesday night, and he wore a smart tuxedo for the occasion.

Cooper has now revealed the suit’s pants were a little too tight, so he ended up mingled with politicians and world leaders at the event without wearing any underwear.

He tells talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, “I had to go commando (without underwear) – number one cause there was no room at all (in the tuxedo). I did. I had to… So it was really great. And you have to walk up the stairs and it was a nightmare. But I made it through.”
