Bradley Cooper has revealed that he missed his university graduation ceremony in order to film a gay love scene.

The actor was asked for the reason for his absence by his former dean James Lipton, during an upcoming episode of Inside the Actors Studio. The long-running series takes place at the Actors Studio Drama School in New York, and Cooper himself graduated there in 2001.

Cooper explained that he missed the opportunity to attend the event at Pace University because he was filming a gay scene in Wet Hot American Summer, his film debut.

According to Pop2it, Lipton asked an embarrassed Cooper: "Ten years ago as dean, I was handing out diplomas and I noticed you were missing from your graduation ceremony. Where were you?"

Cooper joked: "I was having sex with Michael Ian Black in a sports shed in Wet Hot American Summer."

The A-Team actor is the first graduate from the Actors Studio to appear on the program. The episode is to air in the US tonight on Bravo.
