David Letterman Appears Happy With Retirement

Ten months after David Letterman bid farewell to the late-night show circuit, the host already looks very different from his once-familiar look on television.

The host was spotted recently as he was jogging at St. Barts, an island in the Caribbean. A picture of the former late-night host showed him sporting a bald head and a heavy beard. Due to this, he was barely recognizable as the host whose career spanned over three decades. The new look of Letterman elicited a number of comments with some saying he looked like a bald Santa Claus.

The 68-year-old former host has maintained a low profile since he retired in May of last year. He had a cameo appearance at the Indy 500 and attended the New York benefit of Michael J. Fox to battle Parkinson’s disease in November. David Letterman also showed up for an onstage chat at Ball State, his alma mater.

While Letterman made a public appearance showing his silver, bushy beard in the past, his bald head was only a recent addition to his new look. Basing on the latest photos showing the former host with his new appearance, it seems his retirement has been good to him, who is considered somewhat of a cranky host. People tweeted that David Letterman appeared happy after he retired.
