No, this isn’t a joke, or even a bit from Stephen Colbert’s show. The soon-to-be Late Show host dropped his satirical facade to pass on some thought-out advice to teenage girls.
Colbert answered questions for Rookie Mag‘s Ask a Grown Man segment, where girls submit questions on everything from family life to boyfriends, and adult male celebrities respond. In this edition, Colbert sounded off on street harassment, how best to deal with parents that don’t approve of your relationship, how to tell if someone likes you, and more. The answers are, as you might expect, awesome.
