Barbara Walters certainly isn’t backward in coming forward.

The 86-year-old has made her feelings for Bradley Cooper crystal clear—telling the 40-year-old that she finds him “very screwable.”

That Babs! She’s a one!

Baba Wawa makes her confession while interviewing Cooper for her 10 Most Fascinating People of 2015 TV special.

"I could just sit and stare at you but that would take too much time," she tells the actor. "But I, I find you very screwable."

Just in case he was left in any doubt, Walters reiterates her feelings later in the interview.

"I think you're handsome, I think you're sexy,” she tells him.

"Thank you," Cooper responds. "I think that I've grown to stop thinking about it. ... But sometimes I feel better than others. Yeah, I think it has a lot to do with feeling comfortable with yourself.

"And I know that I'm more comfortable with myself than I've ever been in my life, so maybe that makes me more attractive."

Sadly for Walters, Bradley is currently going hot and heavy with Russian model, Irina Shayk—but, if they split up, she may be in with a chance.

Remember Mary Kay Letourneau? She was the teacher who effed one of her 12-year-old students and served a total of 8 years in jail for child rape…

Well…..18-years later, Mary Kay and that very same student, Vili Fualaau, are still together—and they have two children, one of whom was born while Letourneau was out on probation, the other while she was back behind bars for a second time!

Letourneau was a 34-year-old married mother-of-four when Vili walked into her sixth grade class room and forever changed her life. The two began an illicit sexual affair, which was exposed after Letourneau’s husband found a love letter from Mary to Vili, which revealed that she was pregnant with the pre-teen’s baby.

After learning the shocking news, Letourneau’s husband Steve, reportedly became physically abusive, punching her in the stomach in an attempt to make her miscarry. A relative that Steve later confided in subsequently called authorities and reported the affair, leading to Mary Kay’s arrest and conviction on two counts of felony second degree rape of a child.

Steve took the kids and, as part of her plea deal, Mary Kay served six months in jail, with three months suspended, and agreed she would never contact Fualaau again. Obviously, she didn’t stick to the last part though—Letourneau gave birth to the couple’s first child, Audrey, now 17, while she was out on probation—and then promptly became pregnant by Fualaau once again.

After cops discovered Mary Kay and Vili making out in a car, she was was sent back to jail again, this time for 7 1/2 years, where she gave birth to their second daughter, Georgia, now 16.

Letourneau was finally released in 2004, and the couple married shortly thereafter. They celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary by sitting down for a candid interview with Barbara Walters, which airs Friday on ABC.

"It is our 10-year anniversary, and we already know that no matter how protective we are, that there's going to be a wave of intrusion in our life right now that we can't stop,” Mary Kay tells Walters. "So it's about doing the most responsible thing to protect our girls for the inevitable.”

Audrey and Georgia go to school in the same district that their mom, now 53, taught in prior to her arrest, so, not surprisingly, the girls knew the infamous story surrounding their parents’ romance, from a very young age.

“There was never a sit-down chat, ‘Now is the time we're going to talk to our children about this,” Letourneau says. “They seemed to already know ... because they grew up with it. ... There's just never been a ‘Wow, we better explain.’”

Meanwhile, Vili, now 31, opens up about his battle with alcoholism and depression, the difficulties he encountered after becoming a father at such a young age, and the struggles of married life.

"I don't think there's ever a full 10 good years of marriage," Fualaau admits. "You have your ups and downs in marriages. But, you know, what matters is how you pull through all the bad times."

"I don't feel like I had the right support or the right help behind me," Vili says of his friends' and family's reaction to news of his and Letourneau’s relationship. "I mean, my friends couldn't help me because they had no idea what, what it was like to be a parent, I mean, because we were all 14, 15."

After Mary Kay was convicted, Vili’s family filed a lawsuit against the police department and the school district for failing to protect him from sexual exploitation—however, no damages were awarded.

During the sit down, Letourneau also discusses her desire to teach again, and her wish to have her status as a registered sex offender lifted.

Taylor Swift is on Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People list for 2014 - but wants to make sure people understand it's not the 10 Most Well-Behaved list.

The singer sat down for an exclusive interview with Babs and shared some details of her naughty-but-nice life.

"You have such a good reputation," 85-year-old Barbara told TayTay. "You have never been 'the bad girl'… You don't drink. You don't smoke."

"I mean, I do drink, I am 25," interrupted Taylor (who is turning 25 on Dec. 13). "So it's not like, I mean… Yeah, I was at a Knicks game and I had a beer and everybody was like, 'Ohhh!' I was like, 'Tsk.'"

But don't worry, tweens - your idol waited until she was of age to have a glass of wine or six with dinner.

"I did wait until I was 21 to drink," Taylor said. "I was so paranoid about getting in trouble or setting the wrong example or sending the wrong message."

Sex drugs and rock n roll, eh?

Miley Cyrus is such an old romantic.

The 21-year-old opened up to Barbara Walters in a new interview about her broken engagement to Liam Hemsworth—and Popdust has the details.

“I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year,” she says.

“I don’t think I realized what 19 truly is, and I got engaged at 19, and I definitely wouldn’t change being engaged.

“It was so fun wearing a fat rock for a few years. But now, I just feel like I can actually be happy. I wait for those moments of silence, when I’m just at my house, by myself.”

As Popdust previously reported, Miley is one of Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013—you can watch the entire Miley interview when the special airs Wednesday at 9.30pm ET on ABC.
