Internet reacts to David Letterman’s ‘creepy’ new look
WATCH ABOVE: David Letterman, the former host of 'The Late Show' has embraced a new look - one not everyone is a fan of – Mar 24, 2016

Ten months after his final show as the host of Late Night, David Letterman certainly looks like he has been enjoying retirement.

The former talk show host was nearly unrecognizable when he was spotted jogging while on vacation in St. Barts, sporting a bushy beard and a bald head.

Twitter took notice of the surprising new look and the images quickly went viral.

The 68-year-old who spent over three decades behind the Late Night desk seems to be taking advantage of his time out of the spotlight.

In an interview with the Whitefish Review, Letterman said he could care less about what others think of his new look.

“I used to say, every day, ‘I am so sick and tired of shaving,'” he said. “I had to shave every day, every day, for 33 years. And even before that when I was working on local TV. And I just thought, the first thing I will do when I am not on TV is stop shaving.”

“And everybody hates it,” he added. “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.”
