[show]Once, while a guest on British talk show host Stephen Merchant's show, the comedian Louis CK joked about the students in the audience on "Inside the Actors Studio" who ask famous actors for career advice: "it always occurs to me, you know, when an actor stands up - one of the people in the audience - 'I am an actor what can I do' and asks Sean Penn or whoever 'what can I do to reach your level,' you just want to say 'you will never be famous!'" In 2013, Louis CK costarred in American Hustle with Bradley Cooper, who was not only one of those Actors Studio students in the audience in several episodes (including one featuring Robert DeNiro, who was also in American Hustle) but also specifically one of the students who asked Sean Penn a question during Penn's 1999 episode.
