According to TMZ flight attendants asked him to shut off his cell phone in the middle of a game after the cabin door closed, but while the plane was still at the gate.
A police source, speaking on condition of anonymity, told 'The Los Angeles Times' that Baldwin was escorted off an American Airlines flight. The source said police were not involved in the incident, which he said was between the airline and the actor.
Cooper added: "I think it's really cool that a guy who doesn't look like a model can have this. ... I think I'm a decent-looking guy. Sometimes I can look great, and other times I look horrifying."
So which TV stars have been deemed hot enough to join Cooper on the list? Well, there are some conventional hotties like 'Luther' star Idris Elba, 'Community's Joel McHale and 'Game of Thrones' glowering Horse Lord Jason Momoa, but there are also a few guys who are, well, perhaps less obviously hot in the conventional sense.
The cast and crew have been hard at work on Season 6 for a few weeks and they recently hit the streets to film on location.
From the looks of the photos, guest star Denise Richards will be paired with Tracy Morgan's character, Tracy Jordan.
Another guest actor, 'X-Men' star James Marsden, was also on set that day. No word on who he'll be playing, but it could be a new love interest for Tina Fey's character.
Plus, it looks like the fictional sketch show 'TGS' has angered gay fans.

Well, he showed up right away, during Baldwin's monologue touting his 16th time hosting. Martin was surprisingly gracious, and only wanted to make sure Baldwin wasn't using any performance enhancing drugs.
So they staged a fake drug test, with Martin analyzing Baldwin's urine by swishing it in his mouth -- he only detected Cialis. It was a fun bit, but much tamer than perhaps we would have expected. No jealousy or bitterness from Martin? We did, however, love when he asked surprise guest Seth Rogen if his being there counted as hosting. It doesn't.
Watching Alec Baldwin host 'SNL' – which he has now done a record 16 times -- has become a little like purchasing a recent album from the now disbanded R.E.M.: We know that we're going to get a solid effort – even great, at times -- but the truly memorable moments are from the first decade of work. A point Baldwin even kind of alludes to in last night's monologue. The first show of the season is usually a mixed bag at best (with last year's excellent Amy Poehler hosted effort a huge exception). "But they've had all summer to think of new ideas," is often a criticism levied at the first show of a season, but that's not really the way it works. With Baldwin as host and with the exact same cast as last year (with the only change being Nasim Pedrad promoted from featured player to cast member) there was hope that SNL's 37th season could come out firing on all cylinders. Nope. So, with that, welcome to another season of 'Saturday Night Live' and, yes, another season of SNL Scorecard!
Hear Alec Baldwin's Censored Rupert Murdoch Joke in This Week's 'Saturday Night Live' Promos (Sort of)
Thankfully, Bill Hader asked Baldwin about the zinger in the promos for this week's Season 37 opener of 'Saturday Night Live,' and you can hear it below ... sort of.
You should know that Baldwin is so ready for his record-making 16th hosting gig that he arrived prepared with a brand-new Trapper Keeper. Eeee!
Watch the promos below, and don't forget to come back Sunday for Mike Ryan's scorecard of the 'SNL' Season 37 premiere.
On the Emmys sketch, Baldwin said he thought News Corp. might have some sense of humor about the scandal, but when they didn't, he simply asked that his bit be removed from the sketch. His part was replaced by Leonard Nimoy, and Baldwin was perfectly cool with that.
It wasn't supposed to be that way. According to a report in Deadline that's now been confirmed by Baldwin and Fox, Baldwin dropped out of the bit after Fox executives nixed a joke about the News Corp. hacking scandal that was slated for ceremony's opening number.
Baldwin confirmed the report on Twitter, saying "Fox did kill my NewsCorp hacking joke. Which sucks bc I think it would have made them look better. A little ... If I were enmeshed in a scandal where I hacked phones of families of innocent crime victims purely 4 profit, I'd want that 2 go away, 2."
Wait, did you say rum? That explains why Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb were eager to give it a try on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC).
Gifford didn't seem to full appreciate the subtle double entendre, though. 'Schweddy Balls' is named for its creator, Pete Schweddy, but Gifford quickly dispatched with the nuance. "I've been trying to avoid sweaty balls all my life," she said. "But apparently, this is not what you want to avoid."
"For a long time, I thought that 'Here Lies Pete Schweddy' would end up on my tombstone," Baldwin said in a statement. "Now, thanks to Ben & Jerry's, the goodness of the Schweddy family recipe won't go with me to the great beyond."
In the classic sketch, Shannon and Gasteyer played NPR hosts. Baldwin played Pete Schweddy, a baker.
The flavor, which was rumored to be in the works in June, will be available nationwide. It features Fair Trade vanilla ice cream -- with a hint of rum -- fudge covered rum balls and milk chocolate malt balls.
On 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), he admitted that while he might like to be mayor, he's not sure he'd want to run for mayor.
Considering how difficult and unpleasant political campaigns can get, it's certainly an understandable stance. Plus, he has a new interest in his life that's taking up more of his time, and rightfully so.
Baldwin's new girlfriend Hilaria Thomas was waiting in the green room, and David Letterman cut a shot to her smiling and waving.
There's been a ton of speculation about Baldwin's moves after his contract expires, but Fey, the creator and star of the series whose contract is also up, indicated they haven't given up on keeping him around.
"You know, we're going to keep talking to him," Fey told Deadline. "I think he's a person who talks sometimes and changes his mind, like any person. But we are going to keep talking to him, and as soon as I know, I will let you know."
Series stars Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin are contracted through the end of this upcoming season and despite published reports, Michaels, an executive producer on the series, told Vulture he can't imagine Season 6 will be the last for '30 Rock.'
"I can't imagine doing the show without Alec, but I couldn't imagine doing ['Saturday Night Live'] without Chevy," Michaels told Vulture. "And we're still on the air."
"Trump running for president is a good thing. It's fun," Baldwin said. "Trump winning the presidency, that's a bad thing."
Certainly, it would make for some very lively debates like we got back when Ross Perot was running and earned a spot in the major debates. Considering Fallon does a pretty good Trump impression, 'Late Night' would obviously love it.
Jack Donaghy, played by Alec Baldwin, has lived an interesting life. On Thursday night's '30 Rock' (Thu., 10PM on NBC) we learned a little bit about one of his old flames, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Apparently, she still carries a bit of a torch, and also a grudge. So when Donaghy needed her help to get his wife out of North Korea, things were, shall we say, tense.
When Avery (played by Elizabeth Banks) is captured by Kim Jong Il (played in an almost unrecognizable cameo by Margaret Cho), Donaghy needs Rice's help. But Rice starts in on him as soon as she sees him. "You know, I've been to the DMZ, they have signs. Can your wife not read?" Was it that Avery is younger? Or funnier?
Rice does get some measure of relief, challenging Donaghy to a musical duel to see who's better - Rice on piano and Donaghy on flute. Rice won that one.
