That’s What David Letterman Looks Like Now??
David Letterman hasn’t been on nightly TV since May 2015, so of course we could expect to see him in retirement mode, without the nice suit and pancake makeup we’re used to from his “Late Show” days.
We just weren’t expecting his new “off-season Santa Claus” look, that’s all.
Letterman was photographed while out for a jog in St. Bart’s, and it’s hard to believe it’s the same guy – bald, bearded and dressed in baggy yellow running shorts and a Ball State Volleyball tee shirt.
Personally, I’m not even used to considering him as a person with legs, since I’ve only ever seen him behind a giant desk.
Apparently he knows just how strange and creepy it makes him look to people, including his wife and son – and he doesn’t give a crap.
“Everybody hates it. My wife hates it. My son hates it. But it’s interesting. I’ve kind of developed a real creepy look with it that I’m sort of enjoying. And I can tell that people are off-put by it. And the more people implore me to shave, the stronger my resolve is to not shave. And I know, it’s not a good-looking beard. I just don’t care.”
The internet is busy being horrified at the transformation, despite the fact that he looks relaxed, healthy and cheerful in the pictures — or just enjoying the silliness.
