Carol Burnett Jokes She Wants to Do One Thing Before She Turns 91: 'Bradley Cooper'

The comedy legend appeared on Monday's episode of 'Live with Kelly and Mark' to promote her new Apple TV+ series 'Palm Royale'

Carol Burnett has added an interesting item to her birthday to-do list this year!

On Monday, the comedy legend, 90, appeared on Live with Kelly and Mark to promote her new Apple TV+ series, Palm Royale. As she was chatting with the two hosts, she joked there's one thing she wants to do before she turns 91 on April 26: Bradley Cooper.

Kelly Ripa noted that ahead of her 90th birthday, Burnett appeared on her podcast, Let's TalkOff Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she shared a cheeky answer to the question of what she would like to do before turning 90.

"You know, I listened to the podcast … I loved hearing your stories," Ripa's husband and co-host Mark Consuelos said. "And you said something very funny, that, ‘Is there’s something you wanted to do that you haven’t done yet before you turn 90?’ And you said, ‘George Clooney.’"

Ripa asked if Clooney, 62, had reached out, to which the Burnett replied, "No, but now I’m thinking about Bradley Cooper."

For her part, the chat show host appeared eager to help the Emmy-winner make a connection with Cooper, 49.

"Everyone knows that this is the official morning show of Bradley Cooper," Ripa said. "He loves this show. Brad? Give Carol a call. And you know which phone to use."

There's just one thing stopping Burnett from making her 91st birthday wish come true: she has been happily married to Brian Miller for more than 20 years. "I don’t think it’ll work with my husband," the actress joked.

Cooper appears to be attached as well. Although the Maestro actor hasn't confirmed his relationship status, he has been sparking dating rumors with Gigi Hadid since October 2023.

The duo was most recently spotted out and about together on Saturday, when they caught a performance of Sweeney Todd on Broadway together.

Ahead of turning 90 last year, Burnett told PEOPLE she still felt as youthful as she did when she was a young woman.

"I can't wrap my head around it," Burnett said. "I still feel like I'm about 11, but I'm amazed. It sure went fast. But I'm glad because I've got all my parts — got my hips, I got my knees and I've got my brain, so I'm happy about that."

New episodes of Palm Royale arrive on Wednesdays on Apple TV+, and Live with Kelly and Mark airs weekdays (check local listings).
