Retired talk show host David Letterman has everyone talking after appearing virtually unrecognizable on a walk in St. Barts.

Letterman was captured by photographers sporting a big, white beard and a completely bald head — a far cry from the clean shaven host with the full head of hair that he was known as for three decades on both NBC and CBS.

Letterman, who retired and turned "The Late Show" over to Stephen Colbert in late 2015, was caught laughing while listening to something on headphones during his run.

The beloved host, who's worth a reported $400 million, recently said he hasn't looked back since moving on from his TV career.

"I thought I would have some trouble, some emotional trouble, or some feeling of displacement, but I realized, hey, that’s not my problem anymore," he said, the Daily Mail reported.

"And I have felt much better. It’s something for younger men and women to take on. I’ll be 69 next year and I’ve been doing this for 33 years. What did I want? Like, you work until you’re a hundred? So there’s a lot of practical reasons why a person wouldn’t miss this."

Letterman also recently downplayed his influence and impact, saying that he believes what he did had little impact on the world.

"And because of this introspection, you believe that what you are doing is of great importance and that it is affecting mankind wall-to-wall," he said.

"And then when you get out of it you realize, 'Oh, well, that wasn’t true at all,'" he laughed. "It was just silliness. And when that occurred to me, I felt so much better and I realized, geez, I don’t think I care that much about television anymore. I feel foolish for having been misguided by my own ego for so many years."

Many Redditors reacted to the photos of Letterman when they began circulating on the popular forum.

"Completely unrecognizable is exactly the look I'd go for if I were him," one viewer wrote.

"Agreed. Incognito would be the best way to go," another added.
