Oh gosh, I wasn't prepared to have this many feelings today.
Colbert, who is preparing to take David Letterman's seat at the Late Show, revealed to the Daily Beast he's actually had a beard for years.
"This is me. It turns out the real Stephen Colbert had a beard the whole time; I was just so deeply in character for 10 years you didn't notice. That's how good of an actor I am."
