Taylor Swift is bringing the laughs to late night TV!

The 31-year-old entertainer appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert for an interview on Tuesday night (April 13) to promote her re-recorded Fearless album.

During the interview, Stephen asked Taylor if her song “Hey Stephen” is about him.

Taylor tries to convince him that the song isn’t about him, but all the signs seem to point that it might really be about him!

“It was really fun to record it again. In fact, to get me back in the same headspace as when I wrote it, I just wanted it to be really authentic as an experience, so I dug out my old mood board,” Taylor then holds up a giant poster board that is covered with photos of Stephen, along with heart stickers.

“OK, um… Taylor, those are all pictures of me,” Stephen points out.

Taylor then looks down at the board, and responds, “No” before pointing to one image in the corner: “This is a pizza.”

Then, towards the end of clip, Taylor says who “Hey Stephen” is really about – horror author Stephen King!

During the appearance, Sharon discussed the actor’s infamous 2009 outburst on the set of Terminator: Salvation, which went viral.

She expressed that a lot of people don’t get what it takes for actors to do their jobs, “or that you have to have a small protected space to do that.”

“Many people are trying to get so much else from you while you’re doing that that you almost feel like you’re gonna snap and you’re criticized if you do snap,” she said.

“I would not say so much for myself, but I can certainly say that I see that with such brilliant actors, like maybe Christian Bale, who completely transforms himself into someone else, whether he’s playing George Bush or whether he’s playing an anorexic or whether he’s playing an O.C.D. stockbroker, he becomes a different person.”

“People want to get up in his business while he’s trying to completely transform into another person. And then he’s like, ‘Get away from me!’ And then they want to criticize him for not being available to them. I find that a little bit, you know, maybe they should just grow up.”

Sharon Stone also made a revelation about her infamous cross-legged scene in Basic Instinct.

Dr. Jill Biden Responds To WSJ Essay About Dropping Her 'Dr' Title: 'It Was Such A Surprise'

Dr. Jill Biden appeared on The Late Show on Thursday night with husband, President-Elect Joe Biden, and opened up about the scathing Wall Street Journal essay about her having and using her hard earned Dr. title.

The article is titled “Is There a Doctor in the White House? Not if You Need an M.D.” and it was written by a man named Joseph Epstein.

“Madame First Lady — Mrs. Biden — Jill — kiddo: a bit of advice on what may seem like a small but I think is a not unimportant matter,” he began his essay, which was met with a lot of criticism and uproar. “Any chance you might drop the ‘Dr.’ before your name?”

During her appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jill opened up about how while she didn’t read the essay, she did hear the highlights and said it was “such a surprise.”

“It was really the tone of it,” Dr. Biden added. “He called me ‘kiddo.’…One of the things I’m most proud of is my doctorate. I’ve worked so hard for it.”

Joe even mentioned that he had the honor of handing her doctorate to Jill on stage at the University of Delaware.

Jill did thank all her supporters online who condemned the article and stood up for her and her title.

“Look at all the people who came out in support of me. I am so grateful. I was just overwhelmed by how gracious people were,” she shared.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama, and the incoming first-ever Second Gentleman, Douglas Emhoff, shared their support on social media.

Dr. Biden received her doctoral degree in education in 2007. She also has two masters degrees from West Chester University and Villanova University.

Stay tuned for more highlights from their interview…

Meryl Streep Admits She 'Completely Lost It' While Filming New Movie 'Don't Look Up' - Find Out Why

The 71-year-old actress spoke about her experience shooting the Adam McKay-directed film, Don’t Look Up, during an interview on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Monday night (December 7).

During filming, she’s commuting from her home in The Berkshires in Massachusetts to the Boston set.

“It’s about a global catastrophe but it’s sort of funny like Dr. Strangelove for 2020 about global warming, a metaphor of that. I play the president of the United States,” she explained.

“We had our first scene on Friday and I was so bad. I’ve been in this quarantine because they have to be very careful and I’m totally alone,” she said.

“My first scene was entering a stadium full of 20,000 people as the president, my big face on the jumbotron in front of me. And I completely lost it, I couldn’t remember anything,” she revealed, saying it was “not at all” normal.

“First of all, there weren’t 20,000 people obviously. They’ll duplicate them [in editing]. There were extras all around the stadium. Lonely people separated by 20 feet of air, wearing masks and visors that are clear,” she continued.

“The whole thing is so eerie and odd and disconcerting. I have to pull myself together for Monday.”

The movie follows two astronomers who set out on a media tour to warn the public that a meteor will destroy Earth in just six months – and there are SO many A-listers in the cast. Find out who else!

Dolly Parton Made Stephen Colbert Cry On 'The Late Show' - Here's Why

Stephen Colbert was brought to tears by Dolly Parton on The Late Show tonight (October 20).

The talk show host had to remove his glasses and wipe away tears after Dolly, 74, sang a few verses of a song her own mom used to sing to her and her siblings.

“Mama used to sing all those songs brought over from the old world. Mama was a good singer too, and she would just sing a capella all the time,” Dolly shared during her interview via Zoom. “So many of those songs were sad, and as I say, some of them just ‘plum pitiful.’”

Dolly recalled that one song always spoke to her in particular and it was called “‘Bury Me Beneath the Willow.’ It was about a girl that was going to get married, and her boyfriend left her at the altar or whatever, so she died, of course—she killed herself, I suppose.”

It was then she sung the verses: “Bury me beneath the willow, under the weeping willow tree, where he may know where I am sleeping and perhaps he’ll weep for me. But where oh where can he be? He’s gone to seek him another bride, he cares no more for me.”

After her impromptu performance, she and the audience watched as Stephen began to tear up and he removed his glasses to wipe his eyes.

“Are you cryin’?” she asked.

Stephen replied, “I have to say… like a lot of Americans, I’m under a lot of stress now, Dolly! You got under my tripwire right there, I’ll tell you… that was pretty beautiful.”

“Mom would cry, we’d cry, those old songs were just amazing,” she added.

Watch the moment below:

If you missed it, Dolly opened up about some of her plans for her upcoming 75th birthday. See what they are here…
