"I demand a retraction, an investigation, an apology and a substantial cash settlement, or I will see your ass in court," Colbert said.

"When we're in the steam room naked, no shoes, we're looking at each other eye-to-eye," Colbert said. "Seriously, 5'10''? Those are Matt Damon numbers. That's down there in the stale air Johnny Depp is sucking. These guys represent the lollypop guild."

He added that he's a reasonable man.

"I'm not asking to be listed with the circus freaks like Conan [O'Brien] at 6'4."
