Stephen Colbert was honoured last night at the 10th annual Oscar Wilde Awards, which recognises the contributions of the Irish in film and television. The easygoing event created by the noprofit US-Ireland Alliance, saw the Colbeard make it’s public debut, becoming an instant hit on the green carpet. The event also marked the return of Colbert’s hipster glasses.
“I have not allowed this to happen to my face since college because I’ve been working professionally pretty constantly since then. I have like nine months where nobody has to see me so I said, ‘I wonder what I look like?'”
But what does Mrs Colbert think of the Colbeard?
“My wife has gotten used to it now. At first she wasn’t sure who this man in bed with her was,” he joked. “She likes it OK, so I guess I’m OK with it.” [E Online]
